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.

Bosskie (460) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 13, 2014
Crystal-clear golden beer with a nice white frothy head and enthousiastic bubbling. Smell is mellow citrus mixed with a peachy sweetness and sour bready yoghurt. Touch of caramel and coriander. Maybe even clove. Taste is better-sweet and quite sour. Some alcohol, astringent, bit of leather. Fruity like dried peaches.

GuideDogSaint (513) - Xiamen, CHINA - DEC 10, 2014
330ml bottle from Beer Station, Xiamen. Pours hazy golden with a thin white head. Aroma of lemon and Belgian yeast. Sweet finish. Ok but not as good as Classic or Christmas.

Bread, hay, troebel, dik schuim. Geen sterke geur. Smaakt zoetig. Erg zoet bier. Doet verdere smaken een beetje ten onder gaan.

Tricker (303) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 29, 2014
Bière blonde âcre de 9 % d’alcool. Elle possède un col mousseux au versement. Elle a un goût d’amertume, style citronné, céréalier, avec un aspect de sarrasin. Elle possède un bon goût de malt et aussi un arrière-goût sucré en bouche. Probablement venant du sarrasin. Très bonne !

Une triple belge à 9 degrés. Robe dorée pale. Pas mauvaise mais qui me semble assez surestimée vu la catégorie dans laquelle elle se positionne.

wiadran (32) - POLAND - NOV 17, 2014
hazy, golden color, decent but short head. quite sparkling aroma fruity, fresh taste rich, full, sweet, with a bit of sour (orange peel like). alcohol quite noticeable high carbonation hoped for something more - high carbonation lowered the impression a bit for sure.

veceo (677) - CROATIA - NOV 10, 2014
Cloudy amber color, huuuuge white head with nice retention. Lots of lacing. Full body, soft carbonation. Aroma of banana, malts, yeast, apricot. Texture is creamy. Medium sweet, light bitter taste. Alcohol is not evident. Nice, very nice.
