COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
First brewed 1996; claimed to be based on a recipe from 1679 which used wheat, oat and barley.
Tripel Karmeliet is a very refined and complex golden-to-bronze brew with a fantastic creamy head. These characteristics derive not only from the grains used but also from restrained hopping with Styrians and the fruity nature (banana and vanilla) of the house yeast. Aroma has hints of vanilla mixed with citrus aromas. Tripel Karmeliet has not only the lightness and freshness of wheat, but also the creaminess of oats together with a spicy lemony almost quinine dryness.

LordDrachen (116) - reggio emilia, ITALY - JUL 1, 2014
Bevuta alla spina questo weekend. Che dire? Tanta roba. Rispetto alla bottiglia č un mondo che ti si apre. Schiuma pannosissima e assalto alla papille da ogni dove. Grandissimo miele, ma mai invadente, sempre sostenuto da una freschezza spiccata e da un buon finale amaro che bilancia. Frutta fresca che si alterna con sentori piů da "pasticceria". Nonostante la gradazione importante ne vorresti subito un’altra. Grandiosa.

Gelblich-trübes Bier, kleinperliger massiver Schaum. In der Nase Honig, Banane, etwas blumig-fruchtig. Am Gaumen Banane, Süße, Honig, Weizen und leichte BItterkeit im Abgang. Unheimlich erfrischendes und sehr ausfüllendes, nahezu perfektes Mundgefühl.

Excalibur123 (117) - Soria, SPAIN - JUN 25, 2014
Color amarillo intenso, abundante espuma blanca que perdura, finas burbujas, aromas a fruta y levadura belga, en boca es especiada y refrescante, el alcohol está muy bien integrado, amargor casi inexistente dejando un agradable, largo y dulce pos gusto, muy completa y equilibrada cada trago es un placer.

The body has a golden color with a cloudy haze. Inside there are little bits of tasty yeast floaters. The head on top is tall, long lasting and bright whit in color. As I drink it leaves some spotty lacing on the glass. Right from the pop of the cap the aroma creeps out of the bottle. It has a bright nose with hints of lemon zest, fruity and funky Belgian yeast. The flavor has sweetness up front with complex grainy malt flavor and a hint of clover honey. The middle sees fruity and funky yeast and mellow warming alcohol taking over and drying out the overall character. It then finishes bone dry with only a hint of herbal hops. The palate is medium bodied with good carbonation.

Deliziosa tripel (anche se preferisco una Chimay o la Bons Voeux). E’ comunque piů delicata e dal corpo piů setoso, grazie all’avena presente tra gli ingredienti.

Ambro206 (105) - ITALY - JUN 22, 2014
Birra perfetta. Si oresenta con una schiuma compatta e duratura, colore giallo acceso. L’aroma č incantevole con un bouquet di fiori, vaniglia e frutta a polpa bianca. In bocca si avverte un piacevole sentore citrico che va a bilanciare ottimamente questa birra fino al, lunghissimo, retrogusto. L’alcool, seppur presente, rimane sempre non invasivo nč fastidioso.

elosop (141) - SWEDEN - JUN 22, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2014 Halmgul, dimmig med ordentlig skumkrona. Mkt jästaromer i doften. Bred "belgar"-smak med främst banan, koriander samt lite gyllene humle pĺ slutet. Den höga alkoholhalten väl kamouflerad. Eftersmaken sitter i länge, främst skumbanan med nĺgon lakritston. Inte den bästa frĺn Belgien, men pĺ fat svĺrslagen.

adster (164) - HUNGARY - JUN 21, 2014
Élénk, szalmasárga színét koronázó habja sietve kúszik felfelé a kecsesen ívelt pohár falán, majd hosszasan elidőzik. Illata nem kevésbé élénk: élesztős, fűszeres. Ízében a gabonák malátája és a koriander fűszeressége egy kellemesen édeskés köntösbe burkolózik, mely tulajdonsága az idő múlásával némi vaníliás karakterrel kiegészülve egyre inkább teljes értékű szereplőjévé válik az ízek kavalkádjának. A kezdetben jól elrejtőzött alkohol is előlép közben a háttérből újabb oldalát mutatva meg ezzel a sörnek. Remekül sikerült főzet, melynek kortyolgatása közben ízlelőbimbóink egy pillanatra sem unatkoznak.
