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.

Deep hazy golden color.pours with a fizzy white head. Tons of bubbling. Aroma is toffee and caramel malt. Flavor is same with a little bit of fruit added. The strength is obvious. Palate is a little thick.

Tobioz (2) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - JUN 10, 2016 does not count
A very nice tripel. Classic taste, as a tripel should be. Pours light amber with nice foam on the top. Smells a bit of yeast and a little bit to heavy on the alcohol for my taste. But overall a very good tripel.

AirForceHops (6181) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 8, 2016
330 ml bottle purchased at Julio’s Liquors approximately 12 months ago. Hazy golden in color with thin head in a chalice. Aroma is candy sugar with the yeast giving a banana and spice like nuance.

Wheat backbone with integrated yeast and lightly noticeable alcohol that lingers for quite a while. The banana and spice is found again after the sip. Very subdued bitterness in here. A touch high on the booze. Honestly, this is one of the most classic examples of the style you will find. If you don’t like this, nothing else in the style will excite you. Classic representation of the style.

ilovedarkbeer (2711) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUN 7, 2016
Pours a hazy yellow color with a large foamy white head. Notes of green apples, yarn, slightly catty hops, and yeast bread. Comes across pretty thin for 9%.

Fules (791) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - MAY 30, 2016
Óriási, tartós hab. Gyümölcsös, savanykás illat. Az illat az ízben is visszaköszön, gyümölcsös, savanykás, citromosba hajló íz. Jól kiegyensúlyozott itóka. Ahogy melegszik, egy picit keserűbb lesz, és előbújik egy enyhe karamellás vonal.
