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....

The aroma is super sweet like hard sugar candy with yeast, malt, and spices. The appearance is a lightly amber gold with a small head. The flavor is slightly medicinal but has fruits, sugar, malt, and warming alcohol. The palate is on the lighter side but still smooth and not watery. I like most things about this beer.

Bart (2939) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUN 14, 2006
Hazy yellow coloured, with some carbonation and a large white head. Rather sweet spicy aroma, little yeasty touches and some fruity (banana, ...) hints. Nice full body. Bitter sweet spicy finish with some alcoholic touches. A very nice abbey tripel.

Bottle, thick dark yellowish beer with a light haze to it. Very light and sweet (for a triple). A very pleasent amount of spice. Not nearly as yeasty as I was expecting. Lovely

Bottle. Pours extremely hazy, golden in color with a thick white head that last. Looks more like a weizen. Aroma is sweet and spicey with some pepper notes. Hint of banana. Flavor: Very fruity and sweet upfront. Spices definitely there and with the hops, attempt to balance the sweetness, though falling short. Alcohol is warming...can taste it a little in the finish....definitely detracts. Overall, it’s a very nice tripel but falls a little short of being a truely great beer. I would drink again though.

What else can be said. This is a great Belgian triple. A must try for any triple lover (that sounds funny – am I just being immature?)

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - JUN 6, 2006
Bottle. Nice soft banana bread, apple, and clove nose. Hazy light gold body with a thick attractive foamy head. Soft mouthfeel with a touch of alcohol and CO2. Notes of brown sugar, alcohol, floral notes, cinnamon, watered down whisky, warming going down, cotton, and a big herbal/phenol presence I can’t put my finger on. Very enjoyable, one of the better Triples that I have had.

puzzl (3254) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 6, 2006
Pours a cloudy gold with a nice, long lasting head. Aroma is sugary sweet and spicy as hell, yeasty with artichoke and beets. The flavor shares a lot with the other GC beer I’ve had, the Grand Cru, in that it has a sweet sucrose taste that is very distinct and quite pleasing. It is lively and spicy in the mouth, sweet but also a touch sour at the finish, slightly harsh but very drinkable. There is a certain licorice/anise flavor that shows up as it warms, as well. If I homebrewed, I’d love to cultivate this yeast and see what I could do with it.
