4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Clear golden with an impressive looking white head. Lovely fruity aroma with hints of clove and spice. Some sweet candy aswell. Taste is well balanced and mixes the aromas together very well in a pleasant, semi sweet way. Light touch of clove and a light warmth into the aftertaste. Close to full body and close to high levels of co2. Probably the best tripel beer Iíve had.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a hazy hello with thick white head. Has a strong wheat, year and citrus aroma. A very strong lemon taste with heavy wheat, yeast and some grain. A very dry taste from the wheat and yeast.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Itís some years since I last had one. Nose is malt, Belgian yeast, caramel, lots and lots of banana, touch of vanilla, grains, peach, classic profile for a Belgian triple.
Taste is caramel, banana, slight bubble gum, candy sugar, wheat, spice, clove, cream.
Mouthfeel is too thick, and a bit cloying for a triple to my mind.
Itís a very nice triple, but no more.

Lekkere triple. Fruitige smaak. Mooie kleur. Licht bittertje. Koud uit de koelkast een lekkere afwisseling met een witbier op een warme lente/zomeravond.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy yellow with a huge, frothy white head.
Aroma is fresh, sweet, yeasty with ripe banana and some citrus.
Taste is as above but with some light malt/wheat and herbal bitterness.
Medium body, high carbonation.
Itís been 10 years since I last had a bottle of Tripel Karmeliet, no idea why it took so long between now and last time because this is a very nice, refreshing and almost too easy to drink Tripel.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: lig golden straw, weak head and no lace. Pours with lots of gas. Thick yeast lees present. Very fresh funky lifted nose. Citrus and spice dominate. Might have Brett. Lemon lift is enormous. Very dry, fresh, not sour and low to moderate bitterness. Cloves, high carbon did oxide. Banana, estery almost sweet mid palate. Lots of flavor and freshness. Balances the alcohol.
Iím just struggling with the style and mix of flavors. Really interesting beer. Itís just not for me.
