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.

Bottle shared with the crew, thanks blankboy. Yellow pour, medium white head. Yeast, lemon, bread aroma. medium mouthfeel. Lemon and yeast taste, slightly sweet as well. Ends with a maple syrup like sweetness. Very easy to drink and well made, it just didn’t blow my socks off like others from this brewery. Nice stuff.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2006 Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, blankboy, tupalev, Dave B. & R. - courtesy of blankboy. Pale gold with a medium white head. Aroma is a slightly funky and herbal, with notes of band-aid and lemon. Body is soft. Flavour is a bit tart, with notes of wheat, yeast, spice and fruit. Very nice stuff.

Perfumed, somewhat cloying, sweet fruit aroma. Cloudy yellow hue, tanned blanket head. Fruity (apples, peaches, tropical) and flowery base flavor, earthy potatolike aftertaste. Light mouthfeel, slightly sparkly.

JayBaxter (407) - Greater Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2006
Cloudy amber with a big lasting creamy white head. The aroma is sweet and citrussy/toffee-ish, the flavour is sweet citrus and alcholic with a touch of spice but i like it. Kind of different to the other Tripels i’ve had but will deff try again.

HogTownHarry (6101) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JAN 10, 2006
Bottle (330ml). Poured murky deep orange with an average white creamy head. Aroma of yeast, sweet roast caramel malt, spices - a fruity, malty treat. Taste follows directly on, with alcohol and a little musty woodiness in the mix - sryupy, sharp and warming, moderately lively. Very nice, I like all the Gouden Carolus offerings I’ve tried immensely.

ericmc83 (207) - Arkansas, USA - JAN 10, 2006
Aroma of honey, spice, alcohol, yeast, and fruit. Flavor is sweet, fruity with a medium body and soft palate. A bit of alcohol in there as well. Very well balanced and very tasty. No characteristic is too dominant, but the most dominant is fruit. Light chewy malt. Complex.

skaughty (644) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JAN 7, 2006
Pour is par for a tripel, with an aroma of wildflowers and a little alcohol. Reasonably lively on the palate with above average acidiity. A little vinous and sharp, but warm and toasty almost gives it proper balance. Finish is crisp. Less sweet and more wild than most of this type.

beeriodic (61) - Longmont, Colorado, USA - JAN 4, 2006
Pours cloudy, straw yellow with a large, frothy head. Very earthy, woody nose. Spritzy on the tongue, with a generous bite of hops. Aftertaste is dry with just a hint of the alcohol, and lingering esters. Different, but good.

Poured from the bottle this beer appears a light gold with a bubbly good head. Aroma is spicy with grassy hops and has a lemon grass, banana fruit accent. Peppery flavor with a larger bitter hop presence than a traditional Tripel. The bottle mentions "imperial ale"which is quite fitting. Has a "mellow balance" in the finish with a touch of sweet banana left on the tougue. Mostly dry but lively and fizzy moutfeel. An unusual but quite good Tripel.

pours a really light golden yellow color with a large, foamy lasting head and lots of sticking lacing. Aroma is grassy and hoppy and smells very Belgian. Flavor reminds me a little of dish soap and pepper. Slightly warming and bubbly on the palate.
