4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Orange-brown light hazy body with snow white frothy head. Clove, hazelnut, ginger, earthy and very little bublegum. Quite nice and not standard Belgian tripel. Great lacing. Quite easy to drink with a nice full taste that balances pretty heavy sweets with just enough bitterness. Fine carbonation. This one was better than I expected. Fine sweet Belgian beer. Garlic isn’t listed on my bottle and not found either. (75cl bottle)

Bottle. Slightly murky blonde, usual tripel with a decent white head. Some sweetness and caramel with a hint of fruit, garlis has given it a peppery strangeness. Bit thin on the palate.

(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, golden colour with a tall and slightly off-white foamy head. Lemony-fruity and slightly yeasty and peppery spicy aroma with a slightly wheaty background. Mildly bitter and slightly sweet flavour, medium bodied with a lively carbonation. Yeasty and slightly wheaty taste with distinctive notes of lemon and spices; a bit slim bitter-sweet and spicy finish. 14.III.11

A tripel beer spiced with... GARLIC. Who came up with that? It’s brilliant with breadsticks. Bit odd on its own, though. Think it keeps vampires away?

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Far as I’m aware, a first for me- beer spiced with garlic, although I have often thought as I munch a raw clove, this might just work....well, it does. Pale yellow with an uneven, thickly lacing, meringue-white foam. Aroma certainly has a chopping board note about it, but so well blended with a typically Belgian, jellied lemon and galangal softness you wouldn’t identify it as garlic unless you knew it was there. Delicate and sherbety with a penny chew softness of gelatinous lemon, vanilla, lime, dung-speckled floweriness and biscuit. No alcohol discernible. Enjoyable, eccentric brew I’ll buy again if I see it, if only for the hilarious alcohol warning on the bottle...." DRINK MODERATELY BUT REGULARLY". Indeed.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ home. Clear golden pour. Aroma is quite faint overall, some dusty malt, some fruit, some bread. Flavour is fruity, bready and with a sharp spicy sidenote, which is probably the garlic. Not a bad brew but garlic doesn’t really fit in (this) beer. Still not bad though. Nice balance between bitter and sweet.
