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.

On tap at the Brickskeller in Washington DC. Nose of apple, slight corriander spice. Taste is slight hop, apples, citrus. Fizzy thin palate. Trailing taste is slightly alcoholic and citrusy.

Hazy golden color, thin head, very sweet,... a bit overwalming, some nice spices, dont taste the big alcohol level, I wonder of they use only natural ingredients,..so brewery sent the ingredients and I will re-rate

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - MAR 7, 2006
Sweet upon full warming, yet still fairly clean. A bit of herbality cuts through the sugars. Some mushroomy woodiness, a little like what I get from aged Allagash Triple. Fair body and holds together well, if too sweet...The aroma is nicely spicy with pepper and pineish components. I haven’t seen this in 12 oz. lately - is this a new batch?

Bottle. Pours a hazzy blonde with a frothy head. The flavor is of citrus fruits, pear, apple, grapes. The aroma is full of sweet fruits, very tangy. A very refined Triple.

wnhay (722) - Princeton, New Jersey, USA - FEB 22, 2006
Hazy orange with a thin white head. Not much retention when served warm. Hints of white wine, orange, candy apple, apricot. banana, grapes, lemons and cloves come into the aroma. Quite fruity. Taste was quite floral with the apple,banana and white wine dominating. Palate was very sugary and had a thick body. This a strong Tripel yet is was very easy to approach. Well done.

Pours somewhat of a cloudy golden orange with a medium white head which dissipates as it warms. Pear, white wine/white grapes in the nose; very fruity. Flavor has notes of sweet pale malt, apple, pear, spices, lemon, white wine, caramel and a little raisin. Pleasantly sweet, the hops establish enough of their presence to balance it out but most of the flavor comes from the malt and yeast. Medium bodied with a smooth texture and spritzy yet soft carbonation. Overall, quite enjoyable.

(draft @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Thick and cloudy orange color with a white head. Aroma has lots of spices, malts, yeast and some citrus I believe. Flavor begins very sweet and malty with a nice and smooth flow all throughout the beer. Finish is very smooth and warming and it hides the alcohol until it gets pretty warm. Then you can taste the full 9%. I definitely knocked back a couple of these babies. Very tasty.

Dedollewaitor (13677) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 14, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 25, 2006 A strong tripel in alcohol and taste. a bit more brown than the average tripel. great white head and complexity in aroma and taste. Like a good Belgium beer it has a great long lasting finish.

33cl bottle. Pours cloudy gold with an ample white head that lasts forever and laces right to the bottom of the glass. Spicy banana aroma with a little citrus thrown in for fun. The flavor is so sweet, you expect it to become annoying, but it doesn’t. It simply masks the alcohol.

Golden hazy beer with a phenomenal head. Nice and fluffy. Aroma was pretty complex with notes of spiciness, grassy hops, lemon grass, pineapple and bananna. I felt this was more akin to a saison due to how fruity and light it was, than to a triple. No noticeable alcohol made this one go down very nicely.
