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.

Cerveja intensa, com aromas complexos herbais e de malte. O álcool quase não é percebido. Formação alta de espuma.

Bottle from South Bay Drugs: Created a huge puffy pillow of foam that took several minutes to retreat down the cylinder of my glass while the liquid was a glowing blonde hue. My nose was only able to detect a mild and tamed strain of Belgian yeast, but I did notice some extra elements that smelled like sweet sugar cane and brown sugar though. The same can be said about the flavor except that the sugars can be physically tasted as the Belgian yeast hides in the distant background. This does come across exceptionally smooth and having a gentle palate, but also there is a after note of cologne or a mouth wash with only the tiniest mint added in it.

Heerlijk biertje. Goudgeel bier met mooie schuimkraag. Volle romige smaak. Doet zijn naam eer aan als beste triple 2012. Doet denken aan een Karmeliet. Absolute aanrader.

Aroma : Notes of resin, flowers, and most of all fruits, like clementine and citrics. Some yeast (i would say it reminds me of simple bread yeast). Maybe a bit of ginger? Appearance : Pale golden body, yellow with some orangish notes. Hazy, with a minimal white head that had first big air bubble. Brussels laces on the glass. Taste : Really powerful triple taste, with some medium sweetness and some hops bitterness at the end, the yeast fade away to give more room to the hops. Palate : Creamy medium body, lively carbonatation, a really long finish that give another sweet malt taste at the end. Overall : I liked the palate and taste the most, a really nice discover, would compare to the Afliegem Triple for example. Now I have to try more from Het Anker ! Drank in teku glass, poured from a 25cl bottle from fridge.

One of the best, possibly THE best tripels around. Round, smooth, deep. A classic. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: MAR 3, 2014 Goudgeel bier met een rijke schuimkraag die langzaamaan wegebt. Geuren van citrus, honing, abrikoos, perzik en banaan. Zeer romig en vol in de mond. Drinkt lekker weg, alcohol (nochtans 9,5 %) proef je niet. Het rare aan dit bier is dat, midden in een slok, de smaak verandert, de smaak omdraait. Deze twist zal niet iedereen kunnen appreciëren, bij mij gaf het ook een raar en wrang gevoel de eerste keer. Maar heb dit bier intussen al paar gedronken en moet zeggen dat het bier steeds beter wordt naarmate je hem meer drinkt. Hoe meer je dit bier drinkt, hoe beter je het leert kennen en je ook beter het op waarde kunt schatten. Niet mijn favoriete tripel, dat niet, maar desalniettemin toch een lekker bier.

A little bit soapy, hazy blond, fizzy and bitter. Surprisingly not shocking after yesterday party. B@H
