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.

humulus (339) - Salem, Missouri, USA - JAN 23, 2005
Cloudy and tan with a touch of orange. Minimal head and medium high carbonation. The aroma is spicy and ladden with alcohol, sweet yeast and roasted honey. Golden flavors touched by the sun. Apple, summer, morning dew and the consciousness of youth. Palate is rich and satisfying. Overall, very good, quite complex and certainly flavorful. Not really an attractive looking beer.

presario (4536) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 17, 2005
Hazy gold with a big merangue head. Mellon aroma. Fizzy, sweet, slightly yeasty and a hint of chalk. Alcohol is well hidden. Delicate and nice but not my favorite.

jimhilt (2377) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 3, 2005
Pours a two-finger white head that vanishes without a trace lace. Cloudy amber color. Light-medium carbonation and light-medium bodied. Nose is distinctly raisins, starts sweet and finishes sweet and sour but mellow. No hint of alcohol!! Another excellent triple. 330ml bottle for $3.49 from Hoosick St. Discount Bev, Troy, NY.

HopasaurusRex (195) - Glen Ellyn, Illinois, USA - JAN 3, 2005
One of the best Tripels I’ve had. Nicely malty, but still on the dry side for style. Fairly long lasting head and lovely effervescense. Reminds me a bit of Karmiliet, maybe a bit maltier.

ChristianSA (368) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2004
33 cl bottle; Dark yellow with white puffy head. Just the perfect amount of yeast sediment pours on top of the foam. Great! Nose is mostly alcohol with some faint sweetness. Flavour is very smooth with perfect of bitterness to balance, some acidouness from the yeast. High but smooth carbonation. A very nice triple.

jazz88 (2528) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 24, 2004
Bottle. A slightly hazy amber color with a rich foamy white head. The aroma has a nice candy and spice, and the flavor includes banana, orange and a little pepper. Quite a nice triple. Enjoyed with family and friends on Christmas Eve.

Hangover (1031) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - DEC 25, 2004
Pours a cloudy light orange with a thick and creamy head. No lacing, but the head does stick around for quite some time. Aroma is slightly sweet with some coriander and oragne. Taste is a nice blend of fruit and spiciness. Some banana and bready notes come through as well some cinnanmon and orange peel. Overall, it’s really pretty good. Maybe just a hint of alcohol on the back end, but far from distracting. A good tripel.
