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.

On nitro tap at the Porter Bar (ATL). Served in a tulip. Excellent fruity aroma. Good flavor but doesn’t quite keep up with the quality of the aroma. It’s a bit too sweet until the mildly bitter and tart finish. Light body. Little noticeable effect of the nitro.

UPDATED: DEC 16, 2014 330ml bottle poured in a chalice. Lovely Tripel, no doubt. A: Pours a pale yellow color. Hazy. Head is white, fluffy and simply HUGE. Remains forever. Disappears leaving many many lacings in the glass. The foam reminded me a Duvel S: Smell is just perfect. A bomb of honey, pepper, clove, vanilla, fruits (apple and pear) and a bit of citric zest. Sweet. Malts, the traditional Belgium yeasts and flowery hops are also very noticed T: Follows the nose, however much less sweet than expected which is a very positive point here. Taste is dry. Still can feel the malts, honey, cloves, vanilla and fruits. Delicious hops and Belgium yeasts M: Heavy and dense body. Medium carbonation D: Not bad. Carolus beers are usually very intense in the way that I prefer to appreciate them with moderation [ BA Review @ 10/29/2010 ]

Bottle. Slightly hazy, very much like a Duvel with large foam head (foam is denser though). Duvel returns in the aroma. Nice sourness with relatively high acidity, but a fruity undertone: gentle mix of lychee, pineapple, ementhaler cheese from the yeast. Nice. Taste, no surprise again Duvel-like. In the middle a fruity tone is clearly discernible, which spoils the taste a little for me. Lychee, some bitter lemon (in the aftertaste as well). Nonetheless, a good fresh and fruity summer alternative to the Moortgat classic.

On bottle from Vinmonopolet Norway, on order. Hazy golden orange color, good foam. Quite fruity aromas, some citrus, light honey and subtle yeast influence : medium aroma intensity. Medium body & complexity. Ok bitterness, well balanced. Very enjoyable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bouteille de 330ml de blonde. Arôme d’agrume et floral. Au gout on a une petite amertume en début de gorgée qui est bien équilibrée par un gout fruit.
