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.

Golden cloudy, almost peach color in the light. Exploding foamy coating. Citrus and sour smell, a little alcohol. Hoppy and lemony taste, slightly sweet. Feels a little zesty but thin, strong alcohol aftertaste, almost vinous. Overall : Good beer with a taste too sharp, and missing some texture.

ametras (929) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 22, 2015
330ml bottle. Hazy golden yellow with a foamy white head. Flavors are biscuity malts, orange peel, lemon, bread, alcohol and honey with spicy and floral notes. Medium to full body, good carbonation, smooth texture.

erickok (4464) - Leuven, BELGIUM - OCT 20, 2015
Very clean given body, flimsy head. Too bubbly, too crisp for the style, needs more spice and body for me. The alcohol is fitting but overall there’s a lack of character. I suppose that makes it easier to drink, but that’s not what I look for in a Tripel. (75cl bottle from Delhaize Heverlee)

Well balanced tripel. Not too yeasty, not too spicy or sweet. Malt, hops, yeast and spices are easily distinguished and well combined

ChtiBreizh (323) - Rennes, FRANCE - OCT 5, 2015
Hazy golden with a thick dense off-white head. Aroma is very citrusy, coriander, peppery, some belgian yeast. Average to very sweet with a somehow drier finish but only light bitter. Full bodied, average carbonation, smooth mouthfeel. A good blond sipper.

Pours a hazy gold. A very wheaty and grain aroma. A strong wheat taste with citrus and grains. A dry grain and malt aftertaste.

From elcervecero. Playing Goodbye Deponia. In Duvel glass. Too much spices in makes it oddly tasting. The gouden carolus ive enjoyed the least

Lorsqu’on a envie d’une belge blonde classique, c’est d’une Gouden Carolus Tripel dont on a envie! La bière est blonde, voilée et affiche une tête absolument gigantesque et magnifique. Une fois cette mousse retombée, les lacings laissés sur mon verre sont d’une complexité infinie et succulents pour les yeux! Au nez, je ressens un bouquet de fleurs digne de la Saint Valentin: de la rose, de la violette et une peu de lavande, du pot pourri. Quelques céréales suries. En bouche, le liquide est rond et aussi complètement floral et granuleux. La construction est très bien réalisée mais un peu trop chargée en fleurs pour mon goût personnel. Une bonne dose de céréales joue cependant un rôle atténuant et l’en remercie. J’y décèle des saveurs de gruau à l’avoine. Douce, ronde, alcool bien dissimulé, cette bière me fait rêver à mon dernier voyage en Belgique...

MadRobin (2502) - Silver Spring, USA - AUG 30, 2015
Poured from 750ml bottle. Hazy, golden yellow with a 3-finger off-white head and very good lacing. Aroma of Belgian yeast, spice, banana and candi sugar. Taste of spices, candi sugar, Belgian yeast, coriander, pear, banana and a little orangey citrus. Medium body and high/medium carbonization. Excellent tripel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
