jamestulloch (3292) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 11, 2013
Aroma: Pear drops, freshly cut oranges, banana and bubblegum.

Appearance: Murky amber/mahogany body with a thin off-white head than quickly disappears. No lacing.

Taste: Orange, pear, coriander and spice. Quite sweet and yeasty. Interesting flavours.

Palate: Thin to medium body with an oily texture. Soft carbonation.

Overall: A very good take on the classic Belgian beer. Very easy drinking for its 8% ABV. Just lacking a bit in terms of head and body.

Scopey (11991) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2012
Bottle from Deeside Drinks Emporium. It pours deep amber with a medium off-white head. The nose is wood, earth, herbal, raisin, banana, subtle smoke and caramel. The taste is caramel, wood, earth, herbal, metal, candy, banana, wet leaf and some spice with a dry, lightly warming finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Hides the alcohol well. An interesting, well balanced brew.

BeerCast_Rich (1906) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 21, 2012
[cask at Cloisters Bar, Edinburgh] Pours a hazy golden orange with a thin head. Aroma of sweet, Belgian yeast, coriander and orange. Lots of coriander on the flavour. Soft and sweet, before a bitter snap of a finish, which features alcohol, coriander and something sweeter reminiscent of pumpkin. Very nice indeed [06122012]

JohnRMurdoch (4266) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - DEC 16, 2012
Bottle courtesy of mr_h. Copper brown colour, not much head. Spicy vanilla malt aroma & flavour. Sharp with biting aftertaste. Scottish take on a classic Belgian beer. Does not feel like 8%.

Dr_Butty (87) - SCOTLAND - DEC 16, 2012
From the bottle pours deep coppery brown, a little hazy. No head to speak of. A bit of bubblegum and fruitin the aroma. Intially slightly sweet with some citric notes which develops to a distinctly bitter finish. A Scottish Belgian Tripel, brewed for Stewart’s 8th anniversary as a brewery and worth seeking out.

50cl bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours a hazy orange with a thin head of lace. The nose has pineapple sorbet with some coriander or even rocket leaves. The taste has dry green leafiness, with a long tangy citrus note, the sorbet thing again. The palate has a medium to full body with a big tangy texture and a long tangy finish. Overall, a really good tripel, which could be Belgian.

Keg at beer launch at Cloisters, Edinburgh - cloudy orange, very mild fruity aroma, sweet fruity, resin, excellent malt / hop balance, easy to drink for its strength
