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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours golden with medium white head. Aroma has grassiness, light, almost flowery oily garlic fragrance just barely coming through. Flavor is a little lacking in nuance, light sweetness, mild herbal flavored hop resins lingering through to the finish, definite earthy-vegetable hint of garlic as well. Nicely composed, interesting use of the spice, overall not something I would necessarily seek out, but nice triple to mull over nonetheless.
