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.

Ragnampiza (738) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - JAN 5, 2015
330 ml bottle. Dark golden yellow, quite hazy, with an average, creamy and persistent white head. Extremely floral and perfumy nose, slightly spicy (especially lavander and chamomile), a hint of bitter orange peel. Definitely different from a typical Tripel aroma, it reminds me of some Partizan beers from the grisette series. Way too lively, but the taste follow suite. Bitter, slightly tart, again very floral and aromatic. No alchool taste at all, but the drinkability is rather poor. Fizzy carbonation, light body, slightly oily texture. Probably need to revisit as this is an old bottle, but what I’m drinking is far from impressive.

At the 1st tasting of 2015 in Belgrade-Serbia. Pours vivid hazy golden, gassy medium white foam. Nose: Belgian yeast, spices forward, fresh orange juice. Mouth: sweet feel, peppery, dry enough for triple and quite floral-fruity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Champagne Brut method bubbles attack. One of the best beer carbonation ever. Nice nose, cloudy with white average head. Belgian beer spice. Alcohol is strong but well hidden. Master art.

Bottle at home. Pours a clear golden amber with a large white head. Sweet malty aroma, spicy, yeast, bit fruity. Taste is sweet malty, fruity, spicy, prickling on the tongue, warming alcohol in the aftertaste. Not bad.

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear medium amber with a full white head cover, swirls of lace. Nice aroma of caramel malt. Taste is bracing caramel malt that grows nicely in the palate, then becomes only slightly bitter in the finish. A solid offering from Gouden Carolus.
