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.

Couleur ambrée tirant vers l’orangée, grosse mousse plutôt persistante. Présence levurée et plutôt sucré en arômes, sucre brun, cassonade, sucre à la crème. Gros malt épais et collant en bouche véhicule de toutes sortes de flaveurs sucrées restant toujours bien balancées. Texture crémeuse, effervescence piquante et bien présente. Finale un brin amérisante et métallique cachant bien l’alcool. Un exemple bien réussi du style.

in the bottle. This pours about as dark golden as possible. The white head had little staying power. The aroma is like a caramel toffee latte. You can smell the sweetness. Flavor is a substantial malty caramel taste which is remarkably smooth and drinkable for a 9% beer. Not filled with the complexities of many triples. The yeast cake in the bottom of my bottle was like a hockey puck.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 10, 2005
Appealing aroma of fruits, spices and yeast. Hazy orange pour with a thin white head. Very good flavor of thick malt with fruits, spices and yeast, the finish is sweet. The body is medium with a creamy, slightly powdery texture and soft carbonation. Excellent, true to the Gouden Carolus standard.

mds (2194) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 8, 2005
bottle. golden-amber body, small white head. alcoholic caramel aroma with lots of sugar. lively carbonation. sweet caramel flavour with some cookies in the finish. I wasn’t expecting this beer to taste like this but it turned out to be tasty and flavourful.

Rastacouere (6122) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 6, 2005
Deep golden. Big white head quickly recedes to ring. Massive honeyed sweet maltiness. Cough drops paired among floral yeast. Thick litchi maltiness, honeyed alcohol. Smoky and alcoholic as it warms like any Het Anker. Drying out nicely in mouth, but there’s too much malt to manage any kind of balance. A bit too sweet and fatiguing ultimately, but this is great smelling material. Sugar caney full bodied palate, moderately high carbonation, a bit too thick to be tongue cleaning. Thanks Clark!

Ratebeer Mondial Gathering (tiggmtl). Épices, agrumes, miel, raisins, alcool. Levure présente. Belle rondeur du malt. Houblon bien présent.

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUN 3, 2005
From a 33cl bottle. pours a hazy gold with a 1/4 inch snow white head. Persistent head and persistent lacing. Smell is fruity and yeasty. Hints of sweetness and spice. Taste is much like the smell, spicy and sweet. Light hint of cinnamon apples. Sour and peppery as it finishes. Really smooth and oddly creamy (for a tripel) Really one of the nicest textures I’ve had in a tripel. This one does not reveal it’s strength in the body, though very flavorful. Watch out, it’ll sneak up on you.

Man,I liked the spicey nose from this.Has some sweet fruitiness to it but I guess that the yeast in this gives it a apricot/aromatic aroma.This is a little flatter in flavor as the spiciness is more subdued that I would have liked.Still a fine tripel.
