Scopey (11952) - 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.

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.

AshtonMcCobb (5036) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 9, 2012
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

JohnRMurdoch (4262) - 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%.
