Bire qui devrait figurer en spice/herb/vegetable puisque lal entre dans sa composition, ainsi que par son got comme nous le verrons. Mais le brasseur a dcid que ctait une triple, laissons-lui la libert de ce choix Exemplaire de 8% abv, date en juin 15. Trois houblons utiliss: Challenger, Goldings, Fuggles mais les pauvres ont du boulot pour passer la rampe Couleur dor soutenu brillant. Clart nette. Bulles fines en colonne au centre (trs grosse saturation en co2 louverture). Mousse blanche qui devient un fin nappage. Armes de blanquette de veau, soupe loignon, condiments (jai not en fait ceci avant de savoir que lal entrait dans sa composition Donc cest manifeste ). 1re bouche douce vraiment sur la soupe et les herbes aromatiques. Arrire-bouche douce, mais dsquilibre. 2me bouche o je prends connaissance de lal dans la recette, et la bouche est en fait sur lal violet que je connais trs bien, avec quelques houblons derrire.. Mais ils sont masqus, ces beaux diables!!! Arrire-bouche assez pleine, mais fausse en harmonie. 3me un peu moins hard, mais lharmonie ny est pas. Arrire-bouche pas dsagrable du tout. La longueur est un peu mieux intgre. Les jambes sont lgres. La levure est complte et dune trs belle veine, mais Lalcool est progressif, mais il ne peut redresser les problmes dquilibre. La finale est douce mais toujours en porte--faux CONCLUSION: une bire qui ne mrite aucun blme, parce quelle a essay quelque chose de difficileElle est originale, mais vraiment dsquilibre. Ce qui est amusant, cest que je la note aprs la White Gold de Ten Dormaal qui est au chicon, et parfaitement russie On fait de la cuisine, bien sr, mais les recettes ne se valent pas toutes!!! Par contre, je suis certain que cette bire est essayer en cuisine la bire, qui est un vaste domaine et rien qu ce titre, elle mrite le respect. Avis aux grands chefs!!

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

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 isnt 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 (2938) - 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.

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 D. 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 Ive had the pleasure of reviewing.

Slightly hazy bright golden coloured beer. A nice bright white head of foam. Pretty high in carbonation. Has an very fresh and yeasty aroma. Same in the taste. a pleasant bitterness and a tiny alcohol taste in the background.
