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 ďTripleĒ, pour slowly in one movement leaving the yeast deposit in the bottle. This beer may be served cool but not chilled: 7-8įC is recommended. In 2002 this beer won the Gold Award in the World Beer Cup, San Diego, USA in the ďTripleĒ category.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 23, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2007 Almost clear blonde body topped by a long-lasting medium white head. Thick body with lots of crisp malts. Alcohol is apparent. Main flavours are cereals, honey and alcohol with a touch of caramel and some aromatic grassy and floral hops with no bitterness at all. Sweetness level is average. Enjoyable well put together beer with a nice mouthfeel. Despite all its qualities I found it rather simple although the aromatic floral hops kept me entertained. The foundation of a great triple is there and it could acheive that status if given a little more complexity (spicy twist, fruity notes, something...). Still this was very good, basic, reliable and effective, this beer is to tripels what steak & fries is to fine cuisine.

Bottle. Hazy golden colour with a huge moslty lasting creamy white head. Rich aroma and taste of malts, fruits, orange, and hops. Creamy palate.

TheBeerBaron (261) - Florida, USA - APR 21, 2007
Bottle. Murky gold color like an unsettled wort. Frothly white head that isnít going anywhere. Carbonation is there, but hard to see through the cloudiness. Aroma is packed with honey, nutmeg, orange peel, an other assorted spices. A tingly flavor leaning toward citrus and nutmeg but a fair amount of hops to balance the sweet. What your left with is a warm alcohol finsih like a good brandy. Admirably light palate handling the 9% alcohol with ease. A quencing brew that will warm you up and make you smile.

WeeHeavySD (3361) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 20, 2007
On Tap @Toronado on 3/30/07. Pours straw with a thin white head. The aroma was sweet with candied sugar. The taste was also sweet but also slightly hoppy. Very good tripel.

Carl99Fan (187) - Suwanee, Georgia, USA - APR 19, 2007
Poured into Trappist glass. Deep gold color, lacing present. Well formed slightly off-white one finger head that quickly dissipates. Perfumy aroma. Slightly malty flavor with hops dominating. Medium bitterness. I donít notice the alcohol. Not bad, but Iíve had better tripels.

LinusStick (3000) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 18, 2007
On tap at the Sharp Edge Creekhouse. Nice tripel that I have been waiting a while to try. Pour was a cloudy gold with a finger head. Aroma was sweet and yeasty. Taste was strong and different than Iíve had for a tripel. Tasted like a yeasty dry Belgian with crushed up Fruity Pebbles in it yet had some citrus and lemon in the background. Perfumy in the mouth and in the swallow. This is a unique beer.

yesyouam (1016) - Fairport, New York, USA - APR 17, 2007
This beer looks like a brick of gold. Itís a bit hazy and has a small white head. The aroma is juicy and carries something herbal and something barn-like. It hits the tounge with a juicy sizzle. Itís fluffy and perhaps a bit alkaline. The flavor is malt, citrus... Itís tangy, sour and plenty bitter. Lemon peel is the flavor that dominates. A good tripel.

Veeve (312) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - APR 16, 2007
do any of the beers on tap at Eulogy Belgian Tavern in Philly disappoint? apparently not. beautiful murky blood-orange egg-yoke body with a tiny white fizz rim head. smells of grass and citrus. tastes slightly bitter, light-citrus hops. becomes more bitter toward the end. hints of grapefruit. very tasty.

FLnative80 (174) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 15, 2007
Bottle. 11.2 FL. OZ. Pours a golden brown color with a very active head that starts out big then quickly diminishes to almost nothing. Strong aroma of raisin and butterscotch. Light to medium bodied with some lively carbonation. Very sweet flavor that covers the alcohol nicely.

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 14, 2007
UPDATED: APR 22, 2007 Bottle. Sweet malt nose with some floral hop notes. Hints of figs, cinnamon, sour apples, some sourdough background. Beautiful cloudy orange with a frothy heavy white head. Leaves some huge lacing. Creamy palate, nice and smooth start to finish. Not too complex flavor, but still really nice. Well-balanced yeasty sourness with some subdued sweetness. Tinge of alcohol
