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.

thebeertourist (4816) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 14, 2006
Bottle at Paters’ Vaetje, Antwerpen. Orangey golden, hazy with an eggwhite-like head. Toffee aroma as well as some grassy hoppiness, even ryebread nose. Toffee and ryebread flavours and a good balancing bitterness. Good carbonation, dry mouthfeel, full-bodied. Not as clean as a traditional tripel, but a great beer nevertheless.

Pours slightly hazy golden with a large white soft head. Aroma is light fruits, yeast , sugar, bit of citrus. Flavor has some breadiness, but dominated by light fruits, some corriander, citrus in the finish. Mouthfeel is smooth, bit overcarbonated.

vyvvy (3996) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 21, 2006
Cork reads 2/05. Pours hazy yellow / orange with a healthy white head. Aroma is fruity and spicy with white grape, plum, pepper, vanilla, earthiness and alcohol. Medium / full bodied with sharper than normal carbonation for the style. Taste is fruity with light spice - think earthy fell with banana hints. Finish has spiciness from hops, banana comes out more and there is an ABV kick. Overall a nice tripel, but the alcohol is not hidden as well as in many others.

Bottled. Pours a slightly hazy medium orange/golden color. Aroma is sweet and fruity. Some candy-like sugary scents. A dark almost vinous quality along with yeast as well. Flavor is dark and rich. Some yeast and a hint of grain. Some fig and/or raisin. A touch of alcohol in the finish. Good tripel.
