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.

IslandHaole (1091) - Yokosuka-Shi, Kanagawa-Ken, - MAY 29, 2010
Hazy medium amber with massive beige head. Sweet malty nose with caramel and hazelnuts. Moderately sweet with a bit of tangy sourness and a mild alcohol follow. Good feel, almost chewy, lively carbonation.

liinis (1693) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 23, 2015
Quite similar to other Gouden Carolus. This one as good quality as the others but is not that delicious.

Very hazy, high carb. Wheaty estery lemony nose, slight phenolic grape and banana. Very nice smooth and creamy palete Flavour is ok, there is a lean towards farmhouse and pear drops. Interesting but would only sip one.

Jonb5 (429) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2015
330ml bottle, poured into La Chouffe tulip. A: Golden, slight haze, looked lively, lots of bubbles, two finger head, candidate for the best laced beer I’ve ever drunk. S: Over ripe tangerine, phenol. T: Over ripe tangerine, followed by a strange combination of musty earth, wet towels, grass, perfume, slightly cloying, a bit of a boozy burn. M: Crisp body, went down well. O: Different, interesting.

jamaty (1149) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 13, 2015
Color ámbar claro, algo amarillenta. Espuma media que pronto se desvanece para dejar una capa de nata. Gran aroma, muy floral y a plátano y bizcocho. Excelente en la boca, con mucho cuerpo y mezcla estupenda de tonos, albaricoque, piña, cítrico, caramelo dulce... para acabar con un regusto muy herbal antes de que salga el calor potente del alcohol. Grande,

leghorn99 (100) - Livorno, ITALY - JUN 5, 2015
Si presenta nel bicchiere di color arancio pallido, velato; la schiuma bianca è generosa, molto persistente, bianca e cremosa. Il naso apre con una bella speziatura diffusa dai lieviti (pepe, coriandolo, curaçao), scorza d’arancia. In bocca è caratterizzata da una frizzantezza molto vivace che tuttavia non pregiudica una sensazione di morbidezza in bocca; il corpo è medio, l’alcool (9%) è molto ben nascosto; si parte con leggerissime note di crosta di pane che lasciano subito il posto a tanta frutta gialla (pesca, albicocca, ananas). La marcata dolcezza è mitigata da una secchezza quasi encomiabile, con una nota leggermente amaricante (scorza d’arancia/curaçao) in chiusura.
