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.

Abijen (1393) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, - AUG 25, 2013
Pours a golden beer with a good white head. Smells fruity and malts. Tastes pretty good. Little sweet and bitter. Fruity. Average carbo, medium body and a sticky texture.

Braudog (5581) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JUL 21, 2014
Bottle, caged and corked. Pours with an unbelievable visual presentation ... golden orange with the most massive, thick foam pile on top. The head takes forever to cede far enough to start drinking. Once you can get to it, you get the classic tripel ... frothy mouthfeel, subtle tropical fruit and a classic yeasty swirl. Yummy. (#5581, 7/21/2014)

Bottle from York Beer & Wine. A pale hazy golden coloured that pours with a large foamy head. It has floral orange blossom flavours, exotic fruits with a spicy sulphur and vanilla finish.

TtV (32) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - JUL 15, 2014
Bottle 33cl. Hazy yellow with a heavy white top that lasts. Aroma and taste has some sour elements. Not too special, but probably good with hot weather.

Tselloufc88 (83) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2014
From the bottle shop, Brugge. Nice golden colour with a huge white head. Smell is of citrus, some apple and yeast. Taste is fruity to start, with a dry medium bitter finish. This is very well balanced for the ABV. Nice, hoppy and refreshing.

czar (4126) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 10, 2014
pours almost cloudy pale grey-ish yellow with a creamy white head, good retention and lacing. booze, lemonade, honey, candi, flowery grass and perfume, peppery tingling and perfumey booze, yeast, white grapes, coriander (loads of it - even though there seems to be none as per ingredients’ list) and other bitter herbs, herbal tea, sulfur traces, belgian and fruity esters - some soft phenolic molecules too. average to moderate carbonation, light to medium body - oily, relatively dry, boozy, slightly harsh, almost astringent and assertive grassy-spicy finish. unique tripel. just not fond of it.

AlainG (1134) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 8, 2014
Elle est blonde et voilée et d’une brillance séduisante. Une mousse immaculée qui dure un temps avant de se résorber lentement et en y traçant un motif artistique. Ça sent le vrai, le véritable, avec ses arômes de levures qui ont de l’expérience et tout plein d’agrumes et un peu de poivre au travers ça. Un goût très bien charpenté et coordonné. Épicé, fruité et alcoolisé dans un équilibre exemplaire. Il n’y a rien de trop prononcé. Très heureux d’y avoir goûté. (M.A. 22 janvier 2017) (1119-230614)

brianza_ale (72) - ITALY - JUL 5, 2014
Pours medium thick creamy white head with good duration; opaque and hazy dark orange colour. Typical tripel aroma, with good malts/hops balance, smells yeast, honey and bit citrus/fruit. Taste is never too sweet, and with pleasant bitterness, a bit of tartness too in the middle. Quite lively carbonation, medium body, with very balanced bitter/sweet and clean finish. Nice hoppy tripel, quite drinkable
