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.

Kleurplaatje (90) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 11, 2015
Pours clear orange with a nice thick white lasting head and a lively, sparkling appearance. Beautiful. Nice malty aroma with clear caramel notes. Some yeast, spices and some citrus fruits. A bit simple, but it never fails me. Truly marvellous nose. Beautiful smell. Nice flavors of caramel, oranges yeast accompanied with a nice spicy kick. Nice warming glow in the end, which builds up all the flavors. The aftertaste is refreshingly bitter, but still the fruitiness remains. The alcohol works out perfectly in this brew. Soft and simple, yet amazingly rich in flavor. Lively palate, sticky mouthfeel, well carbonated with a full body. This brew amazes me all the time. Not the most complex brew, yet it is so appealling and tasty. Possibly the best tripel available.

Testad på Linköping Beer Expo. Grumlig ljusgul färg. Doftar mandelmassa och jäst. Mycket len och lite söt i smaken. Mycket god.

lillunken (50) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAR 28, 2015
Testad på Linköping beer expo. Fruktiga, "jästiga" toner i doften med inslag av lakrits och mandelmassa. Likadan smak, inte så besk, inte så söt men väldigt välbalanserad och väl integrerade smaker som kompletterar varandra. Mycket god.

Smell of orange zest and yeast. Traces of sugar. In mouth, it’s sweet, piny and spiced. Very smooth and tastefull

ForlornHope (196) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2015
33 cl bottle at home. Pours a brilliant blonde colour with a white head that soon fades. Light aroma of hop, very subtle and almost perfume-like. Taste is sweet with a good balance of bitterness. Good carbonation, more hop and a good underlying grain base make this a satisfying beer. Finish is perhaps a bit too short, but this is nonetheless a very good beer indeed.

SuperTiti33 (767) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 22, 2015
Blonde scintillante. Beau collet blanc et dense. Nez: très exotique. fruité et épicé. Gingembre frais. Citronnelle. Muscade. Girofle. Levure. Pain frais. Fruit exotique. Ananas. Mangue. Papaye. Bleuet. Je salive. Bouche: forte effervescence. Ronde. Sucré. Respectueux du nez, on retrouve les même genre de fruit et d'épice qu'au nez. En plus des notes malté et boisé. Pain frais au levain. Tarte aux fruits. Légèrement anisé. Très complexe et bien équilibré avec une finale sèche qui demande une autre gorgé.

Bozo_skeleton (723) - Grenoble, FRANCE - MAR 21, 2015
Blonde un peu orangéed, grosse carbo, gros collet persistant. aromes fruites (peche, abricot) Ronde, juste un peu trop sucrée, toujours les saveurs d’abricot en avant. L’alcool ne sent sent que tardivement. Tres bonne triple

Couleur jaune doré; mousse blanche épasse; arômes fruités (citron); goût fruité, malté et épicé; finale qui réchauffe (les 9 degrés d’alcool), un poil trop sucrée
