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.

hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - JAN 19, 2007
750. Very hazy golden/light brown with a medium to large off white head. Aroma is malty and sweet with a touch of spices. Taste is sweet unattenuated caramel malt, covers up almost all the spice and yeast characteristics of this beer. I have no idea of what happened with this one, considering the other ratings. wow, what a dissapointment.

RedHaze (371) - Where the hell am I?, Nebraska, USA - JAN 14, 2007
750ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy pale yellow, with a thin quarter inch head that slowly fades away to nothing, leaving behind only small traces of lacing. Smell; very yeasty, with bananas and a little citrus. There’s also some nice bready malts with a touch of peppery spices. Taste; as with the aroma, the yeasts are right up front in the flavor of this one. The fruits are present with bananas and some citrus, with a little bit of peaches thrown in. Even with those fruits, they don’t become overwhelming, which I sometimes have a prolem with. Some candied sugar and bread dough malts come out in the finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, and seems to fit this beer very well, with a very nice drinkability

detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 14, 2007
Nice golden color, surprisingly clear, with a very thick layer of soft cream-colored suds. Beautiful lace clings to the glass as I savor every sip. Bold sweet malt with honey, alcohol, a little peppery spice, and a faint bubblegum taste. Finishes on the dry side, with the alcohol being dominant. Then some residual sweetness. As I pour the third glass (my wife had the second glass) the color is more murky and amber from the yeast I stirred up. I swear there is more alcohol in the flavor now than before.

Jerre (3014) - Waregem, BELGIUM - JAN 14, 2007
Bottle, 33 cl. Hazy golden with white head. Sweet and tart aroma with candy, yeast, some spiciness. Interesting flavors. Fast, sweet, spicy, dry finish. Taste the strong alcohol.

Nightfall (1306) - Hamburg, GERMANY - JAN 12, 2007
Bottle, thin creamy off white head. Fruity and malty aromas amd sweet malty taste. A bit sweety for my liking but not a bad triple.

NoiZe (2323) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - JAN 6, 2007
Interesting brew. Cloudy dark orange color. Aroma and flavor both are strongly reminding me of wine or old port. A bit sweet and a small amount of bitterness too in the flavor. Overall a nice and interesting brew.

kopestes (164) - Braine l’Alleud, BELGIUM - JAN 5, 2007
0.33l bottle at home. Yellow with thin white head. Some lacing remained on the glass. Spicy aroma with hint of orange and alcohol. Thick smooth mouthful. Taste is sweet at the beginning and spicy bitter at the end. Long warm feeling after you have a sip. Good triple.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 5, 2007
2006 bottle shared by tpkenned.
Hazed, buffed and pale yellow in color with a thick, tall and sudsy white head. Sweet, soapy lemon shine aroma is aided by shrocked lemon rind shavings, lemon-pistachio buttercream, coriander, vanilla beans and banana taffy. Sweet, creamy bananas meld with a lemon saltwater taffy character. Fluffy effervescence is well met by the dry, lemon buttered sourdough. Chewy sorghum and a sweetened papaya-banana smoothie characteristic eventually spinn into a dry, tropical and citric outtake. Full-bodied, followed by a sharp, dry cotton bitterness. Marigolds with a creamy nectar blanket envelops the palate with a vanilla mint creamy glossiness at the end.

henry3r (586) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - JAN 3, 2007
The 11.2 ounce bottle poured a slightly hazy golden amber beverage with an ample frothy white head that was mostly lasting and left great lacing on the glass. The first aroma that hit me was bubble gum and then came a sweet fruitiness accompanied by pepper, coriander and honey ... very yummy. The body was medium with a very active carbonation level and a slight syrupy texture. The flavor starts out moderately sweet with honey, fruits and spices. This sweetness stays consistent through the long finish and is completed by a big alcohol warmth in the chest.
