Bottle conditioned.
First brewed 1996; claimed to be based on a recipe from 1679 which used wheat, oat and barley.
Tripel Karmeliet is a very refined and complex golden-to-bronze brew with a fantastic creamy head. These characteristics derive not only from the grains used but also from restrained hopping with Styrians and the fruity nature (banana and vanilla) of the house yeast. Aroma has hints of vanilla mixed with citrus aromas. Tripel Karmeliet has not only the lightness and freshness of wheat, but also the creaminess of oats together with a spicy lemony almost quinine dryness.

750 mLbottle in a snifter. Well deserving of it’s place in the rankings! Have been looking for this one for a while and finally found it in Florida. Excellent aroma, flavor and palate.

Ljusgul klar med stort vit skum. Doftar och smakar lite citrus, vanilj och banan? Händer inte så mycket!

A really nice triple with a lot of foam that dissapears as fast is it comes. Palate is not that great, but the taste is more than decent. Aroma is the real winner though.

Cerveja com teor alcoólico bem marcante, 8,4, frutada devido a fermentação. Aromatica, com uma espuma um pouco cremosa, leve, não da pra sentir amargor. Ao final, o gosto mais citrico permanece.

baraciisch (2134) - California, USA - FEB 19, 2015
Rated from beer log from 2009 Belgian Trip.... Very floral aroma, yellow in color with light white foamy head... Tastes of citrus and coriander, like a Belgian white, finish is slightly sweet and very crisp... Pretty solid tripel but I’ve had better on this trip...

Bottiglia da 33 cc. Colore giallo paglierino, profumo molto fruttato, leggermente citrico. Sapore fruttato, elevata frizzantezza, finale molto secco.

Botella. Color amarillo cobrizo. Con espuma blanca de espectacular formación. Aromas a levadura, plátano, azúcar. En boca es dulce con sabores a levadura y fruta madura...platano...muy complejo, bastante carbonatada. Y el final similar al sabor en boca, donde la levadura perdura.Completa. Cerveza redonda. Y me ha gustado...cambiando mi opinión sobre las belgas!!!
