Bottled. Served in a Orval glass. Hazy like a weiss beer. Plesant aroma of ripe banana. This has some saaz hops as well. This is a bit complex, both sweet and spicy. This tastes similar to Duvel, but drier.

MMMMMMMM. A great example. Even if you can’t get it in certain, famous Belgian bars, the Tripel Karmeliet is worth seeking out and exploring. Hypnotic.

Poured a rich gold with a strong, long lasting head. Aromas of banana and lime are dominate with a hints of softer fruits. Flavor is very sooth and crisp. Again banana dominates with the help of vanilla, but a myriad of other fruits and a light spiciness makes for a great depth. This is probably my favorite tripel or golden ale to date.
