AshtonMcCobb (4134) - 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.

[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]

jamestulloch (2334) - 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.

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.

WeissGary (285) - 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!

Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. This is a dark amber beer with layers of caramel, spicy fruit, cloves, candi sugar and a warming spicy, earthy finish.

Scopey (9771) - 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.
