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.

Fruity, sparkling and warm Tripel. Very representative of style. A real drinking pleasure. Olfactif: Des arômes très fruités avec notes de fruits sauvages, de mures, de pain frais, de brioche au miel, de bonbon et de jujube. Un olfactif complexe, assez puissant et au maintient assez long. Visuel: De couleur jaune / dorée, floue; la mousse est immense, très dense et reste très longtemps. Les traces de mousse se transforment en belle dentelle stable. Gustatif: Attaque fruitée, effervescente, alcoolisée et chaleureuse. Les levures sont en activité maximum avec beaucoup de sucre et de fruits. On y découvre de la banane, des fruits tropicaux, des baies sauvages, des notes de brioche au miel; le tout enrobé d’un alcool chaleureux et d’une effervescence piquante. Les houblons sont cependant peu présents, si ce n’est que de quelques notes florales. Une excellente Tripel qui ravira certainement plusieurs palais.

Draft - Citrus, hay and spice. Gold with a rich white head. Spicy, grassy and light floral malty notes. Great.

Keg at LCBF. Very pale yellow, totally clear, slightly sparkling, big foamy white head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt with bubblegum ester. Body is medium, mid-carbonation. Taste is light bready malt, a touch of alcohol, tangy fruit, an estery mustiness and a dry finish.

Een tripel die erbovenuitsteek tussen de tripels. Echt een aanrader als je van tripels houdt.

jmgreenuk (4222) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 5, 2014
Bottle at Rootz at the Harbour, Scheveningen. Poured a hazy light amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is Belgian yeast, zesty citrus. The flavour is medium to strong bitter with a big yeasty, crisp alcoholic light citrus palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. This is a big alcoholic beer and it doesn’t let you forget that!

Niller (576) - Hammel, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2014
Bottle from Voldby. Pours hazy golden with a good white head. Sweet fruity taste with notes of banana, yeast, hops, alcohol, malts. Medium boby. Lively carbonation. Slight bitter finish that ends up a bit sweet. Great.

Pours a slightly hazy gold with two fingers of fluffy white head diminishing to a thin skim and light spotty lacing. Nose is Belgian yeast bubblegum, cloves and banana, with a little hop bitterness. Taste follows suit, starting sweet and moving to a bitter, peppery finish. Mouth feel is medium to light, with decent sustained carbonation and a bitter, warming finish. Really, really nice Belgian. And for $2.50 a bottle? Unbeatable. Unbelievable! I’d have to say it’s an even better quality-for-price ratio than Leffe! If it weren’t for the fact that the best before was last week, I’d go back to the store and buy out everything they had on the shelf. Mind you, I’m convinced there’s nothing at all wrong with it now. Really, highly recommended.

Samean appelsiinin värinen, hyvin tiheä vaahto. Hyvin persikkainen tuoksu, jossa myös hiivaa. Maussa persikkaa, hiivaa, hieman anista ja humalan poltetta jälkimaussa.

Bottled either...March 8th or August 3rd 2013. I suspect it is the latter since Europe uses Day-Month-Year. A nice popped when the cork came off, it pours, straight from the fridge, a 3/4 foam to 1/4 liquid mix. I can now see a hazy light golden brew that certainly leaves some nice lacing behind. A big yeasty aroma I get followed by some cloves, some banana, and a nice touch of some hoppy bitterness but, not too much, mind you. The taste is lovely. I get more banana and clove with some hints of bubblegum in the taste and the hoppy bitterness is in the taste too and I like it! There’s some other spice here that reminds me of cinnamon, or is it nutmeg? How aboot both so I’m covered.. Medium and smooth bodied, medium carbonation, smooth as silk this is with pretty much no presence from the hefty abv. Yep, this one heck of a good Tripel in my book. Pardon me while I sip the rest of the bottle away.
