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.

Sten (674) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - NOV 11, 2006
A blond-amber coloured beer with a fluffy white head. The aroma is sweet and malty. A sweet and fruity taste. The flavour is a bit too sweet for me. (Bottle 33cl aged 2.5 years)

Pours bright gold into a tulip. Bright white micro head slowly recedes. Sweet raisin aromas. Dry and tart with a lasting bitter/sweet finish.

dwyerpg (4653) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - NOV 6, 2006
Smells like a triple with just a little extra malt. Pretty dry, w/some noticeable finishing hops. Another nice beer, no. 27, for the list.

ross (2100) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - NOV 5, 2006
750 ml bottle. Pours out a brownish yellow color with a white head that goes away pretty quickly. Smell is spicy, hoppy, and malty. Some sugar and lemon is also apparent. Taste is smooth with no trace of the alcohol being evident at all. There is also a nice lemony flavor to it. Pretty good stuff actually. Not too hoppy, which is good because extremely hoppy tripels are not my thing.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 1, 2006
330 bottle, from BevMo LaJolla. Pours mostly clear, lemon-golden color with a large white head. Aroma of sugar cookies, peach, lemon, yeast, ’spring flower’ soap, wheaty notes, vanilla and floral hops. Flavor is sweet, sweet, candy sugar, and lemon, clover, tart floral notes, apricot, with a bready character, the signature GC yeast and a pleasant hop finish. Medium body and smooth mouthfeel.

iowaherkeye (2696) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - OCT 25, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2006 750mL, no date. Pours a clear golden with gigantic, frothy white head. Aroma has some yeast, spicy hops, banana, candy sugar, and light oranges. Flavor a lot more stale fruity than I had anticipated, with a nice, dry finish. Overall taste leans much more to sweetness, with some raisins and oranges being up front. Thick mouthfeel, still fairly carbonation despite everything that went to its head. There is a little warming in the back of the throat from the ETOH.

Huge head at pouring. Lasted a LONG time in the glass. Nice golden color. Yeasty/wheaty flavor. Slight alcohol aftertaste. Cloudy consistancy.

frizzzzle (76) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - OCT 23, 2006
This beverage pours a slightly cloudy, very light coppery yellow color, with a tall, foamy head that sticks around. It’s got a crisp, sweet smell of candy and malt, with spice and citrus in the background. The carbonation is abundant and moderately prickly, but the beer is heavy in the mouth, and the carbonation is welcome to balance that. The beer has a mostly sweet flavor, but it’s more complex than my other recent adventures, with hints of banana, herb, spice and citrus. Sips finish pleasantly dry with an alcohol warmth coming back for the last word. There’s a slightly bitter aftertaste, but it’s not at all unpleasant. Overall? Yum!
