3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer kind of strikes me as a "beginner’s Belgian". Pours a cloudy dark yellow color with a thick and foamy white head. Decent lacing. Champagne-like aroma with some fruit and yeast. Medium-bodied with a pleasantly fruity flavor, along with some yeast, pepper and light hops. The finish is citrusy and lightly spiced. The beer is well done, and despite not being very complex it is a pretty tasty brew.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle bought at Luvians in St Andrews when I could not find more Scottish beers to drink. Very lively when open – only half of the content found its way to the glass. When it finally settled the body colour could be described as hazy golden with a thin, white head. Aroma of spicy malts and late fruits. Tangerine fruits in flavour, joined by yeasty hops and liquorice sweetness. Medium bodied. Sweet, bit still decent drinkability [09.11.2008].

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Golden, lively carbonation, smaller persistent off-white head; sweet-sourish fruity nose with a tinge of vanilla and some cellary traces; moderate to robust sweet-sourish flavour, medium to full bodied; sweetish-fruity (lemons, green apples) finish with a light acidity and some throat-warming alcohol. Unusual, but very interesting....

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Huge rocky and lasting head over a cloudy yellow beer. Fruity, spicy, lightly sour aroma with abundant pear/apple character. Lemony citrusy smell here also. Light-bodied, with loads of apple/pear fruit and spice. Quite good, but lacking in complexity.

Bottled. A straw blonde coloured tripel with a thick white head and nice lacing. The aroma is spicy, peppery and yeasty. The taste is more of the same and there is a hint of lemon in the finish. A really nic quite full bodied and not overcomplicated tripel.
