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.

yespr (33597) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - OCT 9, 2007
33 cL bottle. Pours hazy orange with a white lasting head. Small sediments floating around in the beer. Caramel malty aroma with a slight yeasty spice note beneath, minor orange peel aroma too. Spiced caramel malty flavour, somewhat astringent and far from as mellow as other triples. Finish has a rather warming alcohol finish.

Ungstrup (29987) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2003
The aroma is sweet malty. The color is amber and it has a beutiful head. The flavor is very sweet malty with notes of fennel. The alcohol prickles the tongue and it has a good palate.

fiulijn (15760) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 8, 2003
Hazy amber color. Malt, alcohol, egg nose. Good strength, but too much alcohol; otherwise, just reasonable malt and a quite stronger bitterness.

UPDATED: APR 10, 2009 Bottle, 75cl corked. Two years past BB-date. It pours a slightly hazy, sparkling golden body with a gigantic creamy off-white head. Fine lacings left. Slightly cellary or corked on the nose, with pale malt, fruityness, some citrus hints and spices and a little piney note. Well hidden alcohol. Warming, effervescent and full-bodied. Slightly cellar-like flavor too, with citrusy, piney hops, some bitterness balancing the white sugar sweetness, and a herbal touch. Pale malts as well. Also something reminiscent of dried apricots. Lasting finish with good warmth and a fine bitterness. It’s probably better when fresh, but the two extra years of cellaring sure as hell didn’t ruin it. Rating: 7-4-8-4-16-3.9. (090410)

Bottled, 0.33. A cloudy, orange beer with lots of floaties, and a huge, dense, lasting off-white head. Nice, sweet nose with oranges and spices. Sweet flavor with orange-peel, both fresh and dried fruits and black tea. Fullbodied, quite gassy beer, almost sticky mouthfeel. The finish is long, with bitterness, warming alcohol and spices. I love Het Anker. (061130)
