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.

Pours hazy bubbly golden with thick, dense white head with lots of lace. Floral and lightly citrus hops in the nose along with doughy grain aroma. Flavor is fruity, lightly sweet, orange and lemon, some deeper fruity esters – apple, peach - hints of herbal hops along with crisp resiny bitterness, lingering bitter and very light alcohol burn in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is very lively, bubbly, rich and textured. I likey.

Hazy golden color with a hug white head. Smells of fruit and champagne. Almost tastes more like a bittered champagne. Reminds me of eating green apples with the skin on. Long slightly bitter finish. I prefer the classic over this.

RoyceH (1198) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - FEB 10, 2008
Bottle, Cambrinus, Brugge. Slightly cloudy blonde, thin white head. Nose is sherberty, medicinal, some sweet funkiness. Weird warmness. Mouth is long, sweet, slightly metallic, sweet fruit. Some maltiness. Odd for a tripel. Not a fan though.

DuffMan (8940) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 24, 2008
Hazy dull yellow with a medium white head, dense. I left the last half-inch in the bottle as there were huge floculent particles in the sediment. Aroma of boiled pasta, bread dough, and alcohol. Malty creamy palate, predominantly bready flavour with floral notes and maybe a bit of lemon in the finish with alcohol steadily apparent. BBD of 2009, but something seems wrong with that. Disappointing to say the least.

beerbiere (101) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 10, 2008
Hazy, "cerise de terre" colored, good head but poor retention, yet the bubbling is small and compact. Aroma of butter, ripe lemon, pear and pepper. The aroma is not bright, in terms of intensity and 3d. Flavor is moderately sweet and taken over by an ethylic bitterness, perhaps somewhat reminiscent of wood. The texture is buttery, oily and smooth, even sensual! Very enjoyable, but could be more precisely defined as for the aroma and flavor.

AmEricanbrew (6608) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - JAN 9, 2008
75 cl. bottle pours a light amber fluid with a decent two finger white head. Smells peppery, lemongrass.Medium bodied with a bubbley, lively mouthfeel. Superb lemongrass, black pepper, leather, and woody oak wine barrel taste. Finishes with a slight hop - alcohol tang. Another great Belgium triple.2003

Golden with medium head. Sweet yeasty and fruity aroma. Flavor is sweet with orange, yeast and spicy notes.
