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.

Bottle - Cloudy orange color with a thick bright white head that sticks around. Lots of tiny tiny bubbles on the head. Strong alcohol taste to this tripel. Lots of malt sweetness as well. A thick taste on the palate.

Hazy golden color with huge white foam. Sweet aroma, very sweet, with citrus fruits, coriander and yeast. Taste has citrus, orange and lemon peel and also spices, with a yeasty and caramely background. Alcohol is well integrated. Very nice Tripel.

Beardbeerman (237) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 14, 2015
Pours a hazy dark straw topped by a huge off-white head showing excellent retention and offering beautiful lacing. The nose lets the hops and yeasts deliver nice coriander, orange and melon paired with some caramel from the malts. Well balanced. The taste puts the hops at the front line with a nice citrusy aspect paired with the caramel malts. Medium body, the brew is very enjoyable and offers a dry finish. Excellent tripel, it surely can be aged in a cellar for a couple of years. Cheers!

Fashawn (371) - Montesarchio, ITALY - FEB 9, 2015
Oro carico, con tante bolle e qulche velatuea, spezie pane e soprattutto frutta dolce al naso, in bocca č pesante come da stile, parecchio carbonata, non irresistibile ma decente.

Efterjäsning i flaska, förbannat bra benvit huve. Grumligt blekt utseende. Doften är belgojäst & sött kandisocker, skumbanan & kryddor. Smaken är Champagne:ig, vinös som vitt vin. Belgojäst. Karbonaserad spritsig.söt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330 ml bottle from Greek SM, bottled on Pours slightly hazy, medium orange color, with big, beautiful white head with amazing retention and lacing and lasting. Beautiful beer. Aroma of coriander, apricot jam, apple(in a good way), orange, sugar, bread crust, some esters from the yeast. Complex, intense, ballanced... Taste is citusy, apricot, apple, caramel malt, nice hoppiness, similar with aroma. Very dry, medium bodied, medium to high carbonation, can’t sense the alcohol at all. Just I remember it and still one of the best tripels I have tasted.

adasko (862) - Poznan, POLAND - JAN 31, 2015
Aromat przypalonego karmelu, z delikatną nutą owocową, kwaskową i alkoholową. Barwa ciemno złota/jasno bursztynowa. Piwo jest opalizujące, piana, dość sztywna średnio i drobno pęcherzykowa, nazbyt obfita - piwo zdecydowanie przegazowane. Odczucie w ustach zepsute przez nasycenie. Prócz tego szczypanie alkoholowe. Jest dość pełne. W smaku goryczka alkoholowa, nuty gorzkiego miodu i mocno przejrzałe żółte owoce. Posmak karmelowy z wyraźną mieszanką słodyczy i goryczki. Ogólnie piwo jest chyba nieco utlenione i mocno dofermentowało w butelce.

Lele (222) - Padova, ITALY - JAN 26, 2015
ASPETTO: biondo carico e limpido, schiuma bianca, fine e persistente (ne rimane sempre nel bicchiere). AROMA: stupendo aroma floreale (giglio e gelsomino), unito ad un dolce mieloso. GUSTO: tendente al dolce senza mai essere stucchevole, in quanto bilanciati da dell’agrumato e da un leggero amarognolo nell’ultima parte del sorso e nel retrogusto. I sentori predominanti sono comunque il fruttato (frutta gialla) e mieloso. Capolavoro di tripel.
