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.

adster (509) - HUNGARY - MAY 30, 2015
Opálos méz színű testére egy megzabolázhatatlan, telt és krémes, tejszínhabszerű képződmény telepszik, küllem terén sok típusbeli társa elbújhat mellette. A pikáns fűszeresség, friss koriander és karakteres élesztőnyalábok szövedéke mesteri kompozíciót alkot, a legnemesebb tripelekhez mért aromák megléte kipipálva. Ezek után már talán meg sem lepődhetünk azon, mennyire nagyszabású ízvilággal szembesülünk az első kortyok során, kerek ízjegyei friss komlótól és koriander zöldjétől, citrusos fűszerességtől, mézes maláta desszertszerű jellegétől csattannak ki, az alkohol fokát nehezünkre eshet belőni, a 9 százalék ugyanis nagyszerűen meghúzódik a háttérben. A temérdek kiváló belga jellemvonás a stílus rajongóinak nosztalgikus mosolyt csalhat az arcára, egy efféle palack felnyitása egyenesen egy brüsszeli kocsma asztalához repít majd minket.

330 ml bottle pours a hazy amber with a bubbly, big white head that dissipates rapidly to cap. Sweet fruity nose; bitter orange, light banana some herbally hops and maybe a little ginger. Sweet spicy taste, some initial caramel is soon washed away by bitter lemon. Really good, full mouth feel and quite high carbonation. Great bitterish finish with a lovely warmth and a sourdoughish taste.

centrallamar (11) - wiekevorst, BELGIUM - MAY 13, 2015
from tap in park café mechelen. aroma smells ginger, tangerine, fresh pineapple and orange peel. also fresh citrussy hops.. clear yellow golden colour with off white foam that lasts quite long, low carbo. sweet arrival with banana, coffee in the background. turns to orange peel and some coriander in the development. also some bitternes of range peel. but hey, bitter coffee and orange are a great combo! aftertaste is slight bitter, but always in a controlled way. medium long. this is one of the great tripel beers without a doubt. has it all!

TheCametron (2014) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 13, 2015
Bottle. A handsome Golden ale with a thick White head. Aroma of spicy yeast, banana and hops. Candy sugar sweetness and light lemon tartness. Dry and boozy finish. Gouden Carolus is an excellent range.
