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.

Olney Beer & Fine Wine Tasting. Nice fluffy head with good retention, bananas and spice in the nose. Nice carbonation on the palette; crisp with lemons and bread - though slightly more malty than one might expect from a tripel. Still, quite enjoyable.

Highly carbonated! The cork popped wihout warning! Pours light amber with plenty of yeast hazing. Plenty of friuts in the mix along with a nice blend of hopps. Might deserve a rerate as i sampled it pretty warm....
