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.

Pours a hazy gold. A very wheaty and grain aroma. A strong wheat taste with citrus and grains. A dry grain and malt aftertaste.

From elcervecero. Playing Goodbye Deponia. In Duvel glass. Too much spices in makes it oddly tasting. The gouden carolus ive enjoyed the least

Lorsqu’on a envie d’une belge blonde classique, c’est d’une Gouden Carolus Tripel dont on a envie! La bière est blonde, voilée et affiche une tête absolument gigantesque et magnifique. Une fois cette mousse retombée, les lacings laissés sur mon verre sont d’une complexité infinie et succulents pour les yeux! Au nez, je ressens un bouquet de fleurs digne de la Saint Valentin: de la rose, de la violette et une peu de lavande, du pot pourri. Quelques céréales suries. En bouche, le liquide est rond et aussi complètement floral et granuleux. La construction est très bien réalisée mais un peu trop chargée en fleurs pour mon goût personnel. Une bonne dose de céréales joue cependant un rôle atténuant et l’en remercie. J’y décèle des saveurs de gruau à l’avoine. Douce, ronde, alcool bien dissimulé, cette bière me fait rêver à mon dernier voyage en Belgique...

MadRobin (2436) - Silver Spring, USA - AUG 30, 2015
Poured from 750ml bottle. Hazy, golden yellow with a 3-finger off-white head and very good lacing. Aroma of Belgian yeast, spice, banana and candi sugar. Taste of spices, candi sugar, Belgian yeast, coriander, pear, banana and a little orangey citrus. Medium body and high/medium carbonization. Excellent tripel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Eructoblaster (3418) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 3, 2015
Bottle - 330ml. Superb, slightly hazy, golden body with an average, lasting, white frothy head. Lovely malty/hoppy aroma with honeyish, citrusy, herbal, and yeasty hints. Alcohol is subtle. Its robust malty/hoppy taste carries honeyish, coriander, grainy, and orange notes. Ends with a long, moderately warming, bittersweet finish. A classic!
