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.

Adamsville (213) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 26, 2016
Apparence : Dorée, reflets jaunes pâles, translucide, gros col blanc crémeux et aéré, bonne rétention, effervescence moyenne et peu rapide, très belle dentelle. Nez : Agrumes frais, surtout le citron (ça me fait même penser à de la meringue!), notes céréalières, un peu de banane et de poivre. Goût : Fraîche, notes céréalières, légèrement fruitée (pas autant qu’au nez), côté rustique ou encore herbacé, mi sucrée, présence du goût de levure belge. Sensation : Effervescence faible, corps moyen, huileuse, belle chaleur de l’alcool, finale de longueur moyenne. Bref : Le nez m’a paru plus envoûtant que ce que j’ai retrouvé en bouche. La sensation par contre est très à point. Malheureusement, je trouve que le palais déçoit quelque peu, notamment au niveau des esters fruités que l’on aurait pu croire pouvoir les déceler davantage alors qu’au nez ils étaient tout de même bien présents. Malgré tout, elle remplit très bien son rôle de Triple : elle se boit comme un charme!

Senka (1059) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 25, 2016
33cl from a gifpack. Pours clear fizzy and blond. Thick soapy head. Aroma of citrus fruit and grassy hops. Alcohol is in aroma and taste. Strongly carbonated, below medium bodied, thin and rather watery. Did not meat expectations for a high-rated tripel.

Demens (241) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 17, 2016
0,33l bottle. Cloudy golden colour with long lasting big foamy white head. Be careful becouse the beer has high carbonation and can easily get an enormus head and flow out from the glass. Aroma: Very inetnse fruity, candy sugar, cheese. Spectacular. Taste: Amazing. Strong sweet start rich in flavours. Well balaced light bitter sour moutfeel too but the sweet caracter doeson’t disappear. Medium body with fizzy carbonation. Long sweet/sour finish. One of the best tripels.
