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.

belle couleur ambre golden. Une mousse épaisse et tenace. Du houblon qui vire sur une longue amertume légère épicée herbée. Très équilibrée. Une triple de haut niveau. Valeur sure dans les bières faciles à trouver partout.

jawlo (374) - Katowice, POLAND - MAR 23, 2016
Aromat: intensywne pomarańcze i przyprawy. Wygląd: piana dość obfita, barwa złota, klarowne. Smak: na początku trochę słodkie, bardzo owocowe, głównie pomarańcze i może brzoskwinie, potem dużo przypraw, goryczka niska, świetnie zamaskowany alkohol. Tekstura: średnio pełne, wysokie wysycenie. Ogólne wrażenie: świetne piwo i jednocześnie dobry przykład stylu, mocno owocowe i przyprawowe, alkohol świetnie ukryty, zdradziecko pijalne.

Tradição de anos, ingredientes selecionados dão a essa Tripel um sabor frutado com leve picância e muito equilíbrio. Uma das excelentes Tripel "de raiz".

EdKing (2391) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2016
Bottle from Kris Wines. Pours almost clear golden amber. The moment I nose this I know it’s special. Has an aroma like aged Tripel Karmeliet. Big floral, fragrant, orange blossom, orange citrous, yuzu, and underneath there’s some bready, brioche malt. Stunningly fragrant nose. Taste is little oily like a good white burgundy, soft carbnation, lots of orange blossom, orange citrous, lots of floral perfume, acidic bitterness, slight white vinous, little dried coriander, dry grassiness.

Color ambra. Buona triple, anche se eccessivamente caratterizzata da note citriche che non mi aspettavo da questo stile. Abbastanza rinfrescante nonostante la gradazione.

VDuquerroux (1224) - Airvault, FRANCE - FEB 20, 2016
Bottle, 33cL. Home. A dirty yellow-orange hazy beer with a big white head ; good retention. Fruity nose, very spicy (coriander?), citrus, herb, resin, floral, biscuit. Medium sweet, very spicy, round, light to medium dry bitter refreshing ; warming background. Medium good body, average texture, light oily, average to soft carbonation, spicy dry refershing finish. Overall, a pleasant strong sweet dry spicy ale ; what a pity... Unbalanced spiciness.

Helsdon (351) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 19, 2016
Mmmmmm... Cloudy golden with a foamy finger of dense head. Nose all big citrus, grapefruit and tangerine. Taste mildly sweet with all that citrus flowing through mostly grapefruit with a bite of peel, which helps take the edge off that sweetness. Bit of an intense beer, a 33cl bottle makes a good sipper, but not an all-nighter. But still damn delicious, and not available at the LCBO.

DraftDodger (1080) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 13, 2016
Copenhagen 13/2 2016. 75 cl bottle from Meny. According to the label this is part of a series that represents the Belgian flag where this one represents the yellow stripe. Pours hazy yellow with white head. Settles as foamy 1 cm thick layer. Lacing on the side of the glass. Aroma is fruity dominated by tart sour notes of citrus, a little sugary sweetness and notes of yeast. Medium carbonation and oily palate. Taste follows the nose. Subdued sweetness, tart fruit and yeast. Medium bitterness in aftertaste. Nicely balanced tripel who manages to hide the high alcohol content quite well.
