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.

radiomgb (2236) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 14, 2005
Bottle. Murky yellow in colour, tall lasting white head, nice lace. The aroma was soapy, floral, with lots of candy sweetness and yeast. The flavour was very floral, lots of yeast, noticeable alcohol, apples and peaches. Dry mouthfeel, medium body, medium/high carbonation. Finishes with a medium lingering bitterness. A young sample, perhaps this needs more time.

ALLOVATE (2382) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 25, 2005
One of my favourite breweries and one of my favourite styles, so there may be a little bias in this rating. Happened to be a wonderful brew that seems to stand alone from this brewers big dark ales. Tasted from the bottle and poured into its own gold rimmed chalice, cool and not cold. A big dense and creamy white head formed atop a hazy orange-gold body. Head lasted the distance and left a web of lace down the glass. Intense, treacly sweet candi sugar nose with a strong balance of pears, apples and zesty oranges. Only a light amount of yeast and alcohol spice, peppery, was detectable and this came through long into drinking. In the mouth a blend of zesty fruity esters, prickly, medicinal and mellowing alcohol and yeast spice, and sweet candi and vanilla were amplified by the high carbonation that moved things along quickly. Light fresh herb flavours and leafy hops come in in the back and dry out with the alcohol to follow through to a long warming and reasonably smooth swallow. Light in body and filling in the stomach, this was a lovely beer, perfect for the winter, that came highly recommended by the boys at the Int’l beer shop, W. Leederville, and for that I thank them. Lovely!!! (33cL, BBE 01/07)

giarcsr (103) - Carlsbad, California, USA - JUL 3, 2005
pour is a light blond with a bit of pure white head. Aroma is at first a little disapointing, but after a few wiffs I thought that it actually wasn’t bad and in keeping with the style. There are hints of orange and other fruits in addition to the nice maltyness. Flavor is very good. It’s light and airy with a citrus component. Good beer, I’d drink it again.

JMerritt (1788) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - JUL 1, 2005
Light orange in color, very cloudy, with a nice off-brown head that is mostly diminishing. Toffee, caramel, honey, and light grapefruit aroma. Flavor has a definite pepperiness to it, I kept getting hints of finely ground black pepper. Other than that, a nice light caramel, brown sugar backbone. Slightly alcoholic finish. Pretty nice.

ABUSEDGOAT (2354) - California, USA - JUN 30, 2005
Pours a fairly thick orangish brown body with a small but nice head. The aroma is fruity with hints of raisins. Sweet lingering finish, but not as good as their other brews that I’ve had.

330ml bottle yields a cloudy, orange-amber colored ale with a large tan head and excellent lacing. Aroma is caramel, honey, orange and hint of alcohol. The initial palate is honey sweet, giving way to fruity esters of overripe banana, citrus and raisin. Effervescent and medium bodied and quite smooth, this ale has a long-lasting, moderately hopped finish with pleasing alcohol warmth and dryness.
