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.

Had on a few occasions, very clean and decent triple. Lots of floaties in the bottom. Taste is banana, herb with some bitterness.

Golden color, big white head. Aroma of banana, bubblegum. Taste is medium sweet with a strong anise aftertaste. A bit too sweet but a classic triple.

dandeman (505) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 17, 2014
Fruity, sparkling and warm Tripel. Very representative of style. A real drinking pleasure. Olfactif: Des arômes très fruités avec notes de fruits sauvages, de mures, de pain frais, de brioche au miel, de bonbon et de jujube. Un olfactif complexe, assez puissant et au maintient assez long. Visuel: De couleur jaune / dorée, floue; la mousse est immense, très dense et reste très longtemps. Les traces de mousse se transforment en belle dentelle stable. Gustatif: Attaque fruitée, effervescente, alcoolisée et chaleureuse. Les levures sont en activité maximum avec beaucoup de sucre et de fruits. On y découvre de la banane, des fruits tropicaux, des baies sauvages, des notes de brioche au miel; le tout enrobé d’un alcool chaleureux et d’une effervescence piquante. Les houblons sont cependant peu présents, si ce n’est que de quelques notes florales. Une excellente Tripel qui ravira certainement plusieurs palais.

Draft - Citrus, hay and spice. Gold with a rich white head. Spicy, grassy and light floral malty notes. Great.
