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.

veronneaupy (241) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 29, 2015
Un nez minéral, frais et plein de grains. En bouche, c'est très bien balancé, petit goût de banane, sucré à souhait. Une finale douce, fruité et soyeuse. Vraiment bon ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

karpik (240) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - JUL 6, 2015
Spices in aroma, some citrus and hay. Little overflow from the bottle, pours straw colour with rocky white head. Taste is medium dry, very refreshing for such a strong beer. Belgian yeasts dominate, some citrus, grass, hay is also here. Bitterness is low to medium. Overall fabulous tripel.

bewyder (238) - FRANCE - DEC 17, 2014
Belle blonde dorée, puissante et ronde, de beaux arômes équilibrés entre sucre, houblon et fruité. Très bonne bière apéritive.

Brewso (238) - Mt Kisco, New York, USA - APR 15, 2004
On tap served in a Karmeliet tulip at Lucia's in uptown mpls. Aroma of banana and spices. Taste is of banana, wheat and cloves. A very refreshing and surprisingly light (given abv) beer that is a great match with our 70s spring weather. Not as full bodied or spicy as other tripels like Allagash or golden monkey, but solid nonethelss.

Terrific Belgian! Came with a beautiful goblet, bright, bubbly lasting head. Fruity, yeasty and just enough alcohol.

Serapac (236) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JAN 27, 2015
Bottle. Pale yellow, large, fizzy and rather quickly disappearing white head. Medium to strong carbonation and lacing . Floral aroma typical of many Belgians, especially triples. Medium body, taste very much on the sweet side, hoppy element missing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
