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.

Bottle. Hazy straw color with white foamy head. Aromas of lemon cookies and banana. Complex flavors with honey and oats. Well carbonated and a very pleasant finish.

Bottle. Pours a clear gold with a thick white head. Huge bubbles. Big fruity (lemony and banana) aroma with yeast and a touch of spice. Fairly sweet, with honey and lemon flavors dominating. Some malty flavors as well.

I don’t like this beer, cloudy golden/orange color with good white head, citrus and hoppy aroma and taste, excessive, like a soap...

Pale blonde, subtle spicy dried apricot smell. Nice soft mouthfeel with spices. Very easy to drink, warming on the way down. So sweet. I could drink ten of these easily the 8.5% is deceptive.

Mpuntmuts (121) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 2, 2013
Beautiful yellow slightly cloudy pour with the largest foamy white head I’ve seen. Dominant smell of pear and overripe fruits. Also, hello mr yeast. I get some fireplace in there too. Yum. ...taste of pear, banana and banana. Not overly sweet. I really like the thick body. Nice and sticky. Overall a beer that stands out in the jungle of tripels. Good! !!
