Revisiting Scratch #3, we take the same Tripel recipe, add beet and cane sugars to the kettle, and run the wort through our hopback brimming with juniper berries, coriander and yarrow flowers.

Inspired by the herbaceous nose of gin, the berries and flowers give a slight pine/citrus aroma with floral undertones. Scratch #8 has a dry, yeasty finish and noticeable alcohol warming when consumed.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 29, 2008
Bottle shared by ucusty. Yikes. What is going on here? A hazy golden pour with a thin head... looks decent enough... oh, but then the aroma hits and overpowers! Baby powder, cheap perfume, hibiscus. Yowsah. Also didn’t realize it was 10%. Suprisingly tastes better than it smells, but this was not a beer I enjoyed.

Haslinger (853) - The World of Beer, Texas, USA - DEC 18, 2008
12 ounce bottle. Malty very medicinal tasting. Wicked spicy and delicious. Warm and filling this beer is an absolute privilege to consume.

kyzr (1143) - Belgrade, Montana, USA - DEC 17, 2008
Bottle thanks to riversideAK. Pours gold with smaller white head. Spice and yeast on the nose. Flavor is very sweet with different spices, light yeast. Texture is almost like syrup really coats the throat. Nice little punch of hops towards the end. I knew it was higher in alcohol, but would have never guessed 10%.

yespr (29687) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 5, 2008
12 fl oz bottle. Pours hazy orange with a diminished white head. Mild spiced and light earthy aroma. Spiced cardemomme dense flavoured with a mild wheaty note. Ends spiced and floral. Light yeasty note into the far finish.

GriffinAvenue (396) - Winchester, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 30, 2008
Bottle. Translucent yellow-urine coloring. No head. Juice-like. Yeasty, lavender, spicy. Assaults the nose, especially the peppery-coriander mix. Flavoring is much more delicate and not as in your face as the aroma. Best served semi-warm. I’m a fan.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 29, 2008
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma is sweet malty with fruity notes of peaches. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of fruit - again peaches being stronges, but also notes of ginger. Thanks Storm for sharing.

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - OCT 26, 2008
Bottle, thanks hopdog! Pours clear pale amber with a lacy white head. Sweet aroma of spice, cedar, flowers and fruit. Very creamy, silky medium body with a trace of fine carbonation. The mouthfeel of this beer is quite unlike anything I’ve ever tried before. Lightly sweet and spicy taste that isn’t too far afield from the pumpkin beers I’ve tried lately. Barely biter and lightly spicy finish... this one just fades into oblivion. I just noticed that the ABV is listed at 10.1! I never would have guessed.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 25, 2008
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of Storm. Hazy yellow with tiny floating impurities and a small white head. Very sweetish spicy and floral aroma. Medium body, a little low in carbonation with plenty of coriander and floral notes. Almost no bitterness. 201008

Grovlam (4152) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 20, 2008
Bottle. [Tasting @ Papsoe 20-10-2008] Small fizzy white head that mostly diminished. Spare display of lacework. Light cloudy golden color. Aroma of herbal juniper berries, with a heavy flower feel. I imagine this is how tulip tastes like. Quite perfume like but still kind of smooth. Medium bodied with an average carbonation and light dry texture. Light sweet flavor with a hint of bitterness. Flower like sweet herbal finish.
