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.

craftbeersweden (457) - SWEDEN - FEB 7, 2016
The beer purs hazy with a beatiful, thick, yellow colour. A two finger high, creamy, white head that refuses to leave the side of the glass!

Nose: Belgian yeast, orange, citrus, peach, caramel malt, lemon, honey and grass.
Taste: Oh! This is good! Sweet caramel, banan, honey, lemon, pepper, green apples and some orange zest.
Mouthfeel: Very soft, creamy with a small and high, but still very soft, carbonation. A light dry bitterness at the end. Beatiful!

fkoolen (747) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - FEB 3, 2016
Bottle at home. Nicely cloudy golden colour, creamy offwhite head that nicely lasts. Really fruity with hoppy citrus, orange and tangerine, yeasty banana, with big creamy, grainy malts as the backbone. Firm body, medium carbonation. Great Gouden-Carolus-balance.

Bawelt (269) - Lyon, FRANCE - JAN 26, 2016
Nez très fortement abricot ! Fond pêche. Bouche du même acabit, pas mal de caramel, les fruits jaunes se complètent et fond une belle longueur qui s’équilibre avec un petit houblonnage qui donne une finale légèrement sèche. Très peu de levure ce qui évite le côté éc?urant.

33 cl. Belle couleur jaune un peu trouble. Mousse blanche et abondante. Nez subtil de senteurs florales, peut-être la violette et la rose. Bonne carbonation et bouche houblonnée amenant une belle amertume. Une triple malinoise bien équilibrée et très agréable.

Really nice nose. Taste: full body with sweet malt and candied fruits. Notes of orange and apricot. Good yeast balance and amazing attenuation. Aftertaste: yeast and malt. Small alcohol finish.

Ulysse (389) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 5, 2016
Homogenous foam top. Fresh yeast aroma. Alcohol is well tamed. Strong beer but still soft in the mouth. Light metallic feel. Medium bitterness.

Itstasty (11) - East Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2016
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2016 Bottle. Straw coloured, lively head that lasts. Spicy, herby & floral aromas. Medium sweetness, average carbonation, no bitterness. Well balanced flavours. The herby and floral aromas and taste are not my favoured style of beer. But disregarding my preferences, this is very good.
