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.

Pours cloudy amber with decent fluffy white head. Nice aroma, lots of citrus and bread. Taste is usual sweet bready malts, lemon and some mint(!?!).

Cristobal37 (663) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 14, 2016
On tap. Slightly hazy golden with ample head that very slowly dissipates. Sweet corn flakes, powdered sugar, honey, and floral hoppy nose. Really classy tripel goes down extremely smooth. Great balance of sweet and dry hopped finish. Mid bodied beer but not filling. Would gladly drink again.

huineman (546) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 10, 2016
On tap at De Minnestreel, Mechelen. So good I had another one immediately after the first. It pours very hazy pale golden with abundant soft white head. Aroma is peach, lemon, biscuit and, overall, lots and lots of cardamom. Mouth feels silky, low carb, fresh and balanced. Long finish, medium bitterness. Very nice.

Franzen (472) - SWEDEN - MAY 3, 2016
Zesty, earthy and spicy aroma with heavy banana presens. Malty sweet taste, bit tart, background bitterness. Too carbonated and dry.

wedgie9 (2577) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 30, 2016
Tasted on 4/29/16 from a capped 330mL bottle purchased at Frugal. Pours lightly hazy golden orange with a massive, smooth white head that slowly recedes to thick, rocky lace. The nose is sweet bread and caramel, a touch of honey, with a very distinctive lavender note, and some lightly earthy yeast. The flavor is a ton of honey up front, much more spice than on the nose, lavender, and bread. The body is medium with massive carbonation and a long spicy, lavender, and hot finish.

AdolfoCC (112) - Veracruz, Veracruz, MEXICO - APR 9, 2016
APARIENCIA: de color ámbar con algunos destellos naranjas, turbia, se observa moderada actividad de carbonatación; corona de espuma blanca, copiosa de buena retención, burbujas compactas con algunas abiertas. AROMA: notas de miel, notas de frutos amarillos, cítricos, notas de naranja, lúpulo herbal discreto. SABOR: la maltosidad resalta, aroma a grano y miel, algunas notas de especias, notas de frutos amarillos, cítricos, muy muy agradable, por ahí predominando de entre todos la naranja; al retrogusto amargor ligero, seco, no astringente, se percibe el alcohol y deja una sensación de calor en la garganta agradable. SENSACIÓN: cuerpo moderado ligero, carbonatación media alta. RESUMEN: excelente representante del estilo, una cerveza muy buena.

BlueGaljoen (80) - FRANCE - MAR 25, 2016
belle couleur ambre golden. Une mousse épaisse et tenace. Du houblon qui vire sur une longue amertume légère épicée herbée. Très équilibrée. Une triple de haut niveau. Valeur sure dans les bières faciles à trouver partout.
