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.

330 ml bottle. Good artwork. Pours cloudy yellow with medium white head. Wheat aroma with notes of lemon. The taste is amazing! A bit roasty, caramelly, lemony, and just the right amount of sweetness. The 8.4% vol are not detectible at all!

From the tap @Buitenlust Oirschot. Clear golden color with a white head. Smells and tastes herbs, sweet, fruity, banana, balanced.

Pours hazy with pale yellow hue. Very frothy, with white two finger head. High carbonation and very fruity, smelling high citrus and banana notes, detecting herbs, cloves and coriander. Very much like a witbeer, however not my favourite style of beer, but I did enjoy its creamy smoothness.

Mijn favoriete abdij-tripel. Een troebel geel bier met een creme-kleurige kraag. Het eerste wat opvalt als je het bier ruikt is citrus en hop. In de mond proef je citrus en banaan, de laatste zorgt voor het wat zoete karakter van het bier, die ik verder wil omschrijven als fris zuur-zoet. De afdronk is licht bitter en blijft heerlijk lang in de mond hangen. Naar mijn bescheiden mening een topper onder de Belgische bieren, vandaar het hoge cijfer!

angel77 (909) - oviedo, SPAIN - AUG 28, 2014
Botella de 33 cl varias veces (de el c. Ingles se conserva etiqueta con fcp para 04-11-2001). Sabor y aromas intensos y suaves de maltas y cereales con ligero dulzor y especiado. Muy equilibrada de lo mejor para iniciarse en el mundillo. Cuerpo medio con 8vol que le aportan una buena sensación alcohólica. Muy buena.

UXO (191) - CANADA - AUG 25, 2014
Pours a hazy straw yellow with two fingers of fluffy white head gradually diminishing to a thin skim, with sticky lacing. Nose is Belgian yeast, wheat, banana, bubblegum, and vanilla. Taste is light, sweet and mildly bitter, with wheat and fruit notes, and slightly spicy. Medium to light body and a sticky, off-dry warming finish. Very nice Belgian Abbey Tripel. Balanced sweetness and a nice bright character with a pleasant lingering finish.

Probably the best abbey tripel in the world. Nice, golden, hazy beer with the aroma of vanilla, banana and spices. Alcohol nicely hidden. Great white head. I highly reccomend this one!

Heerlijke tripel. Mooie grootte schuimkraag, heerlijke tonen van karamel. Ruikt ook erg naar karamel. Toppertje.

Pours light hazy golden with one finger quick dissepearing white head. There is lots of sweetness, banana and appricot aroma. Taste is yeasty sweet and fruity with little bitterness. Aftertaste last long in back of the tongue. This is one quality Belgian beer. Bardakta hafif bulanik altin rengi, çabuk kaybolan bir parmak beyaz köpük. Kokuda tatli ve kuru kayisi hakim. Tat hafif serbetçi otu aciligiyla damakta kalici meyveli, tatli ve mayamsi. Kaliteli bir Belçika bir birasi.
