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.

Beautiful golden color. The taste is sweet and smooth, but on the downside alcohol is noticeable. Thickness is good but carbonation is on the high side. Overall a great beer for its type.

Drinking from a 33 cl bottle. In the aroma hop, alcohol. The clear yellow beer has a medium white head. In the taste sweet, nice balance. Medium carbonated.

Bottled. No one serves Chinese beer here! Pours hazy golden with a white head (the waiter poured it badly). Slightly yeasty and wheaty flavor with clove aroma.

Une bière que j’ai tout de suite appréciée, il y a quelques années déjà. J’y retourne aujourd’hui pour voir si elle tient la route maintenant que mon goût a évolué ... Au final, ça reste pas mal. La levure belge reste en retrait et c’est un peu moins sucré que ses consœurs. Bien donc même si ce n’est plus trop ce que je préfère maintenant....
