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.

Bottle 0.75l at home, Nivala. BBE 03/03/2017. Colour is cloudy golden with small thick white head. Aromas and flavors: Fruits, citrus, yeast, some spices, Belgian yeast and malts. Warm, nice sweet fruitiness but palate is too carbonated.

Bottle at home. Pours a clear golden amber with a large white head. Sweet malty aroma, spicy, yeast, bit fruity. Taste is sweet malty, fruity, spicy, prickling on the tongue, warming alcohol in the aftertaste. Not bad.

rondphoto (2294) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - DEC 16, 2014
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear medium amber with a full white head cover, swirls of lace. Nice aroma of caramel malt. Taste is bracing caramel malt that grows nicely in the palate, then becomes only slightly bitter in the finish. A solid offering from Gouden Carolus.

Plutôt ordinaire comme Triple... Je ne sais pas si c’est une question de roulement à la SAQ de Mont-Joli mais j’ai eu l’impression qu’elle avait mal vieillie. Au goût, j’ai noté la présence de miel, d’alcool et de fruits tropicaux. Pour le reste, ça déçoit ;-(

Bosskie (459) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 13, 2014
Crystal-clear golden beer with a nice white frothy head and enthousiastic bubbling. Smell is mellow citrus mixed with a peachy sweetness and sour bready yoghurt. Touch of caramel and coriander. Maybe even clove. Taste is better-sweet and quite sour. Some alcohol, astringent, bit of leather. Fruity like dried peaches.
