WeissGary (286) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - APR 2, 2013
Interesting Scottish take on a Belgian Tripel - it has a light floral aroma, golden brown body with an off-white head, unmistakeable Belgian style strong fruity highlights in the taste, quite strong to the taste but somewhat mellow with malty highlights. Would be a good beer to give any enthusiast of both Scottish and Belgian beers, or someone you want to get into them! Worth a shot!

TheLuddite (3) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAR 3, 2013 does not count
Despite the modest score this is a good beer. It is pretty much "what it says on the tin" (bottle)!

jvhemert (379) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 23, 2013
AROMA: floral, spruce, banana, APPEARANCE: amber, orange, clear, minimal head, white foam, TASTE: medium bitterness, PALATE: full body, slick feel, average carbonation, bitter, long finish, OVERALL: ok ale, but not the aromas I like, especially too hoppy, more a belgian christmas abbey than a tripel, wrong colour even!

UPDATED: SEP 26, 2013 Re-rate 26/09/13 - Much as I remember, less bubblegum, more spices. much nicer. Got one left! Original 01/02/13 - 500ml bottle from Appellation Wines, Dalry. Pours a surprisingly dark orange, good head & lacing. Aromas of yeast, coriander and butterscotch. Slips down nicely for 8%, but some lingering buttery notes, along with citrus and Sorachi Ace (the bubblegum referred to on the label I guess?). Finish is short and sweet. Unusual for the style. Might get a higher mark after ageing for a bit, tasted a bit too fresh to me.
