Bottle from Sainsburys. Golden colour with white lasting head. Complex nose of yeast, herb, lemon, orange, lavender. Slightly sweet in mouth with crystallised fruit but dry herby kicking hop finish. Lots of bangs for your buck here.

so old-world that if you put this one in the oven for a hour youíll get a loaf of hearty bread.
Awesome thick, chunky waves of smooth malt and banana peels.
one of my favorites-

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2012 Full-tasting yet refreshing tripel. At 8%, itís nice and smooth. Semi-sweet, moreso than I expected, but still very enjoyable. Grass.

I prefer it on the tap but also in bottle it is always a great moment to drink a tripel Karmeliet. Its taste is unique for a 8į beer

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 31, 2007 Some fizz continues after pouring for quite a while, maintaining the large creamy white head. The liquid is a mostly clear golden apricot colour, with only a touch of sediment coming in the last drops. The aroma is of spices and wheat, with some lemon coming through, especially on tasting. I can also detect a bit of caramel sweetness as well. Very pleasant in the mouth, and quite a full body with medium levels of sweetness and bitterness. The aftertaste is satisfying, with a long, slightly metallic finish. Deserving of itís high rating.
