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.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2013 Very fine aroma of lemon, clove, yeast, and breads. Taste is a blend of all that along with apples and sundry spices. Mmmm! One of the nest tripels I have had for sure - not too sour, astringent, or boozy.

33cl flesje of van de tap, zeer vaak gedronken op verschillende plekken Alcoholpercentage van 8,4% Uitgeschonken in het originele glas Uiterlijk: goudkleurig met dikke witte schuimkraag Smaak: fruitig (sinaasappel), romig, koriander, zoet, weinig bitter Conclusie: 1 van mijn favoriete tripels, 1 van de bieren waardoor mijn interesse in speciaalbieren flink werd aangewakkerd destijds. Heerlijke combinatie van smaken. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bouteille de 330ml de blonde. Arome d’agrumes et notes fleural. Au gout c’est beaucoup plus intéressant on a une explosion de saveur avec une belle effervescence. Très bonne

Overweldigend presentatie in het glas prachtige dikke schuimkraag die lang blijft, koolzuur gaat tekeer als een storm in het glas. Tarwe, gerst en haver fel aanwezig in de smaak. Zacht van smaak met fruitige hinten van citrus.

Hazy, pale yellow. Huge, frothy, white head. Sparkling carb. Fruity aroma, citrus and banana. Flavour is sweet, coriander and clove. Finish has alcohol and citrus and is quite dry. Creamy yet light mouthfeel. Very, very nice. This is my 500th rating.

joskevermeulen (15) - liedekerke, BELGIUM - JUL 18, 2014
Een modern, gekruid, fruitig bier. Zeer zacht en vlot drinkbaar. Mooie schuimkraag. Het smaakt zoet met een meer bittere afdronk.

From bottle. Aromas of vanilla and citrus. Pours a hazy pale with white head. The first taste was was quite sweet, but after a few sips it seemed more of a medium sweet. Medium body, somewhat creamy texture, quite lively carbonation, a dry finish. Overall a nice beer, but could the carbonation could be toned down somewhat.
