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.

Very hazy, high carb. Wheaty estery lemony nose, slight phenolic grape and banana. Very nice smooth and creamy palete Flavour is ok, there is a lean towards farmhouse and pear drops. Interesting but would only sip one.

Jonb5 (432) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2015
330ml bottle, poured into La Chouffe tulip. A: Golden, slight haze, looked lively, lots of bubbles, two finger head, candidate for the best laced beer I’ve ever drunk. S: Over ripe tangerine, phenol. T: Over ripe tangerine, followed by a strange combination of musty earth, wet towels, grass, perfume, slightly cloying, a bit of a boozy burn. M: Crisp body, went down well. O: Different, interesting.

jamaty (1325) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 13, 2015
Color ámbar claro, algo amarillenta. Espuma media que pronto se desvanece para dejar una capa de nata. Gran aroma, muy floral y a plátano y bizcocho. Excelente en la boca, con mucho cuerpo y mezcla estupenda de tonos, albaricoque, pińa, cítrico, caramelo dulce... para acabar con un regusto muy herbal antes de que salga el calor potente del alcohol. Grande,

leghorn99 (123) - Livorno, ITALY - JUN 5, 2015
Si presenta nel bicchiere di color arancio pallido, velato; la schiuma bianca č generosa, molto persistente, bianca e cremosa. Il naso apre con una bella speziatura diffusa dai lieviti (pepe, coriandolo, curaçao), scorza d’arancia. In bocca č caratterizzata da una frizzantezza molto vivace che tuttavia non pregiudica una sensazione di morbidezza in bocca; il corpo č medio, l’alcool (9%) č molto ben nascosto; si parte con leggerissime note di crosta di pane che lasciano subito il posto a tanta frutta gialla (pesca, albicocca, ananas). La marcata dolcezza č mitigata da una secchezza quasi encomiabile, con una nota leggermente amaricante (scorza d’arancia/curaçao) in chiusura.

adster (529) - HUNGARY - MAY 30, 2015
Opálos méz színű testére egy megzabolázhatatlan, telt és krémes, tejszínhabszerű képződmény telepszik, küllem terén sok típusbeli társa elbújhat mellette. A pikáns fűszeresség, friss koriander és karakteres élesztőnyalábok szövedéke mesteri kompozíciót alkot, a legnemesebb tripelekhez mért aromák megléte kipipálva. Ezek után már talán meg sem lepődhetünk azon, mennyire nagyszabású ízvilággal szembesülünk az első kortyok során, kerek ízjegyei friss komlótól és koriander zöldjétől, citrusos fűszerességtől, mézes maláta desszertszerű jellegétől csattannak ki, az alkohol fokát nehezünkre eshet belőni, a 9 százalék ugyanis nagyszerűen meghúzódik a háttérben. A temérdek kiváló belga jellemvonás a stílus rajongóinak nosztalgikus mosolyt csalhat az arcára, egy efféle palack felnyitása egyenesen egy brüsszeli kocsma asztalához repít majd minket.

overtheline (90) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - MAY 30, 2015
330 ml bottle pours a hazy amber with a bubbly, big white head that dissipates rapidly to cap. Sweet fruity nose; bitter orange, light banana some herbally hops and maybe a little ginger. Sweet spicy taste, some initial caramel is soon washed away by bitter lemon. Really good, full mouth feel and quite high carbonation. Great bitterish finish with a lovely warmth and a sourdoughish taste.
