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.

Competent but won’t blow you away. Blond ale-like with sweet malts and hints of corriander. Eats up the 9% with ease. (e2.60 on tap at Kulminator).

Beltramelli (471) - Campinas, BRAZIL - FEB 26, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2007 Golden muddy coloration. High/average carbonation. Excellent cream. This beer has an uneven taste, maybe notes of honey and orange................................PORTUGUÊS: Coloração golden turva, com coisas acontecendo... Carbonatação média/alta. Ótimo creme. Essa ceva tem um gosto ímpar, que pra mim se deve às notas de mel e laranja.

On tap at Great Dane - Hilldale. Pours a beautiful hazy golden with a full head. Fruity nose followed the same in the mouth. Pears, green apples, apricots, cardamon. Slightly sour. but well balanced overall. A bit of yeast and sourdough. Nice.

Arayaga2 (1859) - portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 10, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2008 Golden honey colored with a HUGE white dimpled head. Aroma is faintly sour with a sweet maltyness. Taste is rather mild, with no biting spice or cloying sweetness. Interesting grape skin flavor in the finish, and warms to apricot aroma and taste. An excellent tripel. $8/750ml

sheatripper (863) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - FEB 4, 2007
Draught at reBar. Hazy amber with a frothy white head. Pronounced yeast aroma, like half baked bread, with light fruity notes--banana, apple, pear, citrus. Off-sweet bready malt flavor with some mild yeasty notes. Fruity and well rounded. Subtle spices-not overpowering or too peppery. Medium to full body with a mostly smooth mouthfeel--fine light carbonation. Very enjoyable.

rederic (3188) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 26, 2007
Cloudy yellow gold hue, with a rocky white head, leaving nice laces, yeasty fruity nose of citrus fruits, with pineapple, ripe apples, with a spicy coriander accent, with a grapefruit floral hops and a sweet honeyish pale malt aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a yeasty, sweet candied lemon citrusy character, with flowery hop, releasing some grapefruit flavors, with a mellow honeyish warmth alcoholic mouthfeel, with coriander spiciness, ripe apples and pears fruitiness, and sweet pale malt, leading towards a faint dry hops bitterness, and an alcoholic warmth finih.

DarkMagus (472) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 21, 2007
Clear golden color, moderate white foamy head. Sweet malty and yeasty aroma--presence of spices (clove, coriander), flowers, candy sugar, and perhaps a hint of pineapple and banana. Flavors are a nice balance of sweet malts, spices, and hops. The bitterness of this beer does not allow the sweetness to run rampant. This is a nice, well-balanced tripel. The mouthfeel is soft and a bit sticky, but is dried up nicely by the astringency of the hops. Certainly worth drinking again, and definitely lived up to my expectations. I haven’t yet had a "bad", (or even "average") Gouden Carolus beer. Can’t wait to have more of these...
