Far as Iím 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 wouldnít 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 Iíll buy again if I see it, if only for the hilarious alcohol warning on the bottle...." DRINK MODERATELY BUT REGULARLY". Indeed.

erickok (3484) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - APR 17, 2011
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 isnít listed on my bottle and not found either. (75cl bottle)

UPDATED: SEP 11, 2009 Nice herb beer with good head, good aroma, garlic in balance. Maybe a little more stability between the different beverages from different dates.

Bart (2941) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 19, 2006
Hazy light amber coloured with a small ferm creamy white head and lots of yeast on the bottom. Very sweet yeasty aroma, herby, ripe fruits (banana). Full palate, nice balanced body, malty, light roasted. Finish is light alcoholic, sweet yeasty with some light bitter touches and a fruity (again banana) dry finish. Very nice homebrew.

BlackHaddock (3593) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2012
33cl Dumpy brown bottle, best before 19 Nov 2011, poured into a Duvel glass on 10 Mar 2011, slowly, ensuring no sediment entered the glass. Mid golden body, almost dull and certainly not the regular bright tripels often found in Belgium. Clear with small bubbles rising through body from the Duvel íDí. On top was a full, deep, white head, impressive considering how slowly I poured the beer. It left some heavy lacing as the beer level fell. The aroma was yeasty and hoppy, with a nutty hints. The refreshingly crisp taste was a good combination of hops and crystal malts. Easy to drink and it hides the alcohol content very well, I was impressed. A good beer and one of the many enjoyable Belgian tripels Iíve had the pleasure of reviewing.

skortila (4463) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - FEB 1, 2007
Aroma of citrus and yeast. Hazy, orange coloured with a beautifull, creamy, white head. Taste is sweet, citric, yeasty, some herbal tones. Good bodied beer, some alcohol. Nice balance. Good brew.

UPDATED: JUL 17, 2011 Bottle, 75cl at the Belgian Embassy. It poured a slightly unclear, golden body, with a small, white head. Herbal, grassy aroma with a touch of garlic, leaving the malt in the far back. Thereís some malty sweetness in the flavor, but itís mostly like the aroma, herbal and grassy. The garlic is more evident in the mouth. Medium body. The finish has a nice bitterness. Iíve heard horror-stories about homebrew with garlic. Well, this one proves it is certainly possible to make a nice beer with garlic. What is really annoying is that I didnít understand that it was garlic until the company representative told me so. Then suddenly all pieces fell in place. I figure a well-seasoned and well-garliced leg of lamb would be a nice treat with this one. Rating: 6-3-7-3-14-3.3. 080410

Bottle, at Oud Arsenaal. A golden one, unclear, and topped by a finger-thick off-white head leaving lacings. The aroma has a nice herbal touch, with pale malts, sugar and citrus fruityness. Quite dry on the palate, with sugary sweetness, pale malt notes and a touch of citrus and bitterness. A bit sweet, but really nice anyway. 110429
