COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

This 11.2 oz bottle was $2.49 and what a bargain. I wan’t expecting such a great beer. Solid aroma of yeast and light sweet malts. Taste is super balanced and smooth. It has just the right blend of hops, malts and a slight hint of Belgian yeast. The aftertaste I think is the best part. Very impressed!

33cl bittle at home. Pale slightly hazy orange with a medium white head which didn’t last too long. Medium sweetness with some bitter notes and a dry hoppy finish. Citrus, flowers, grass, herbs and some warming alcohol. A quality tripel.

Icedwarf (105) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JAN 12, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 Stevige smaak, ietwat zoetig maar toch sterk, smaakt naar dennen. Afdronk is goed. Bier schuimt in eerste instantie maar valt snel terug. Troubele kleur

aleksander9 (280) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 11, 2014
Golden color with huge thick head. Aroma is loads of complex fruit like Passion fruit, peach, citrus and white grapes. This is mixed together with some very nice spicy belgian yeast and some alcohol. Round and full mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Aftertaste is dry and floral with a lot of spicy alcohol. Overall: excellent brew! Aroma is great.

Reginetta della tripel belghe, č sempre un piacere renderle omaggio. Corpo molto morbido e sapientemente maltato, nasconde dietro la sua grazia un alto grado alcolico che scende pulito, inebriando e seducendo. Da non sottovalutare il ruolo dei luppoli, che ne elevano il gusto oltre l’orizzonte tradizionale questo stile, dolce e spigoloso. Tanto di cappello.

R2k2 (306) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 4, 2014
A somewhat yellow, little bit cloudy beer with a nice fluffy layer of foam. A sweet, fruity aroma with a touch of apricot. It tastes quite bitter, with a touch of licorice and alcohol. The aftertaste doesn’t last long. Een lichtgeel, iets troebel bier met een mooie schuimige kraag. Zoet fruitig aroma, met de hint van abrikoos. De smaak is vrij bitter, met de hint van alcohol en drop. De nasmaak blijft niet lang hangen.
