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.

Syd (921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 7, 2008
Big bottle pours hazed pale oak veneer color with a proud head that takes time to die off leaving very little lace. The aroma has strong malts, yeast, citrus/banana fruits, and floral. The flavor is fruity, yeasty, spicy, malty, kind of dry, and some faint bitterness. The palate consists of refreshing and cleansing carbonation infused in a medium bodied feel. The finish is rather quick and dry. This is one of the better Triples I’ve had in some time. Post script - as usual with my ratings of Belgians, the yeast pour and temperature make things much more interesting! Oh, and I broke out some Tillamook cheddar to accompany and it works well!

Ober (2813) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - MAR 4, 2008
A beautiful dark golden colored beer, with a very large white thick foamy head. A lot of aroma’s, a combination of caramel, fruits, like raisins. Also light spicy. A rich taste of banana, pine, honey and malt. It’s complex and balanced. A beer to enjoy on a nice summer day.

jehoey (765) - Shippensburg, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 29, 2008
Sampled in Nancy, France: Came from the tap golden and with a very slight haze, and a white head, that laced nicely on the glass. Aroma was of spice, some banana esters, and alcohol. Flavor was the same, estery, with some spice and a hint of alcohol. medium and bubbley on the mouth feel. Excellent triple.

nomad (18) - Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2008
Bottle again from Belgian Belly. This looks amazing, a shining, clear gold with a snow white head and thin stream of bubbles. Like a dream advert for beer, clearly in top nick. Medium bodied and slightly fizzy in the mouth. Big fruity wafts of mango, passion fruit, banana and orange which are all present in the taste along with pineapple, fresh bread and sprucey hops. Good dry, hoppy finish with the alcohol well concealed. This is some good beer!

nigos (631) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2008
Slightly clouded amber hue with decent white creamy head. Orange and yeast nose which is also present in the flavour with malt amd other fruity hints. Not a great deal of after taste, fairly short in the finish.

Bottle, split with after4ever. Pours a cloudy dark gold with a lacy white head. Aroma of fruit with sweet citrus hints. Creamy medium body, light carbonation. Sweet caramel apple and candy taste that dries out in time for the finish.
