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.

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

VDuquerroux (1183) - 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 (1039) - 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.

craftbeersweden (559) - SWEDEN - FEB 7, 2016
The beer purs hazy with a beatiful, thick, yellow colour. A two finger high, creamy, white head that refuses to leave the side of the glass!

Nose: Belgian yeast, orange, citrus, peach, caramel malt, lemon, honey and grass.
Taste: Oh! This is good! Sweet caramel, banan, honey, lemon, pepper, green apples and some orange zest.
Mouthfeel: Very soft, creamy with a small and high, but still very soft, carbonation. A light dry bitterness at the end. Beatiful!

fkoolen (926) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - FEB 3, 2016
Bottle at home. Nicely cloudy golden colour, creamy offwhite head that nicely lasts. Really fruity with hoppy citrus, orange and tangerine, yeasty banana, with big creamy, grainy malts as the backbone. Firm body, medium carbonation. Great Gouden-Carolus-balance.

Bawelt (512) - Lyon, FRANCE - JAN 26, 2016
Nez très fortement abricot ! Fond pêche. Bouche du même acabit, pas mal de caramel, les fruits jaunes se complètent et fond une belle longueur qui s’équilibre avec un petit houblonnage qui donne une finale légèrement sèche. Très peu de levure ce qui évite le côté éc?urant.

ardeo (133) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - JAN 24, 2016
33 cl. Belle couleur jaune un peu trouble. Mousse blanche et abondante. Nez subtil de senteurs florales, peut-être la violette et la rose. Bonne carbonation et bouche houblonnée amenant une belle amertume. Une triple malinoise bien équilibrée et très agréable.
