COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In spite of modern brewing technology, this beer is brewed according to ancient traditions. It unites, now as in the past, the best products of our soil: rich barley and fine hops.. It's refined character, with a pure and rich taste, will captivate you. It is matured at length in cellar and bottle, and is guaranteed to be brewed only from pale malts. It is traditionally top-fermented and is 100% pure. The Gouden Carolus Triple has a unique colour and a full flavour due to its well-balanced hopping. To properly savour the Golden Carolus “Triple”, pour slowly in one movement leaving the yeast deposit in the bottle. This beer may be served cool but not chilled: 7-8°C is recommended. In 2002 this beer won the Gold Award in the World Beer Cup, San Diego, USA in the “Triple” category.

UPDATED: JUN 15, 2014 Un corps parfait et satisfaisant.. On sait immédiatement qu’on a à faire à une excellente bière! Ce n’est pas une bière qui tente de repousser les limites, elle n’explore pas de nouveaux horizons, mais elle représente définitivement bien son style! Une bière ronde, complète, poivrée et qui cache merveilleusement bien son alcool. Pour les personnes demeurant au Québec : procurez-vous sans faute cette bière, maintenant disponible à la SAQ, avant qu’elle ne disparaisse!

Excellent tripel.

JLDC (66) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 2, 2014
Colour: Pale gold with a adequate white head. Nose: Fresh, crisp. Hints of wheat (toast), sugar, yellow fruits. Spices and floral notes. Quite complex. Flavours: Vanilla, citrus, lemon. Touches of cereal and sugar. Herbs and spices (coriander, ginger). A lot of depth but easy to drink. Alcohol is neatly disguised within the complex flavours. Finish: Long, refreshing but well-rounded. Verdict: A seriously good Tripel. Can match most Trappists in quality and complexity.

Denbor (5) - Lennik, BELGIUM - JUN 1, 2014 does not count
Mooie witte schuimkraag! Geurt complex met fruitige toets De smaak is complex met citrus en koriander achtergrond. De smaak blijft lang in de mond hangen. Al bij al een fris en aangenaam bier.

BiereLuc (866) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 30, 2014
Bière blonde pâle, trouble, coiffée d’une épaisse mousse poussée par une puissante effervescence. Le nez est fruité (agrumes, banane, épices...). En bouche, le produit est aussi complexe et raffiné que ce que le nez voulait bien nous laisser croire. Les saveurs fruitées s’étalent sur une belle trame d’acidité avant de laisser place à une finale plus sèche – bien qu’elle soit finement enrobée d’un doux sucre résiduel. Cette Gouden Carolus est une Tripel exemplaire et savoureuse.

allmyvinyl (2878) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 26, 2014
330ml bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours hazy yellow, thick white head. Aromas of bread, yeast, spice, white sugar. Taste is sweet, light herbal bitter. Clean finish, touch of booze-burn. Not bad.
