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.

BobbyW3363 (154) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 26, 2006
Hazy yellow with a medium white head. Yeasty, fruity aroma. Complex fruity flavor that is reminiscent of the other, darker Gouden Carolus ales. Some saltiness in the finish. Very good.

blankboy (5798) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 23, 2006
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, tupalev, Dave B. and R. -- courtesy of me. Pours a very hazy bubbly yellow with an average size fizzy white head. Nice Lacing. Aroma of wheat, yeast, lemon, spices and sugar. Flavour follows the aroma but with some added hops and lingering alcohol, it’s nice and complex. Light bodied with a lively mouthfeel. I like the other Gouden Carolus beers I’ve had more but this is still a damn fine beer.

cvillebeer (134) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 22, 2006
Slightly cloudy golden pour with an energetic and rising head. Overall and pleasing aroma of malt, spice and yeast- well blended. Full in the mouth, but not sweet to start, with spice and subtle hoppy bitters in the finish with a nice conclusion.

Gorbalev (2893) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 22, 2006
Bottle shared with the crew, thanks blankboy. Yellow pour, medium white head. Yeast, lemon, bread aroma. medium mouthfeel. Lemon and yeast taste, slightly sweet as well. Ends with a maple syrup like sweetness. Very easy to drink and well made, it just didn’t blow my socks off like others from this brewery. Nice stuff.

Perfumed, somewhat cloying, sweet fruit aroma. Cloudy yellow hue, tanned blanket head. Fruity (apples, peaches, tropical) and flowery base flavor, earthy potatolike aftertaste. Light mouthfeel, slightly sparkly.

JayBaxter (407) - Greater Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2006
Cloudy amber with a big lasting creamy white head. The aroma is sweet and citrussy/toffee-ish, the flavour is sweet citrus and alcholic with a touch of spice but i like it. Kind of different to the other Tripels i’ve had but will deff try again.

HogTownHarry (5984) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JAN 10, 2006
Bottle (330ml). Poured murky deep orange with an average white creamy head. Aroma of yeast, sweet roast caramel malt, spices - a fruity, malty treat. Taste follows directly on, with alcohol and a little musty woodiness in the mix - sryupy, sharp and warming, moderately lively. Very nice, I like all the Gouden Carolus offerings I’ve tried immensely.

ericmc83 (207) - Arkansas, USA - JAN 10, 2006
Aroma of honey, spice, alcohol, yeast, and fruit. Flavor is sweet, fruity with a medium body and soft palate. A bit of alcohol in there as well. Very well balanced and very tasty. No characteristic is too dominant, but the most dominant is fruit. Light chewy malt. Complex.

skaughty (643) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JAN 7, 2006
Pour is par for a tripel, with an aroma of wildflowers and a little alcohol. Reasonably lively on the palate with above average acidiity. A little vinous and sharp, but warm and toasty almost gives it proper balance. Finish is crisp. Less sweet and more wild than most of this type.
