4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
De color entre amarillo oro y cobre, con una buena capa de espuma blanca de media retención y que deja encaje.
De aromas suaves y a la vez complejos. Afrutada y especiada. Platano, albaricoque y algo de naranja. Clavo y levadura. Algo de cereal y hierba del lúpulo.
Bastante gasificada y cuerpo medio.
En boca también muy equilibrada. Dulce y maltosa, cremosa. Y sigue la fruta y las especias. Alcohol bien integrado.

Never really liked blonde beers until a classmate recommended this one to me. Has an awesome herb-aroma which lets you think of fields in springtime. The taste balances betweens honey, citrusfruits and herbs. One of my all-time favourites.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
330ml bottle. Beautiful golden yellow color with a huge pillowy white head. Lost of bubbles streaming from the bottom of the glass. Fantastic complexity in the aroma and taste: clove, banana, herbs, citrus, hay, peach, mango, cereal, grass, spruce, floral hops, and sweetness. The oats and wheat make this smooth and delicate on the palate. A world class Tripel to be enjoyed by all.

Orange and coriander nose with like a demerara sugar tone. I have two of the "correct" glasses thanks to a special bottle shop, I suspect these help a lot with concentrating the smells.
The glass looks nice and makes the huge head look even bigger... This is what I think a tripel ought to taste like, I admit to not having tasted the ones rated higher than this due to availability (but a few in the same score range I have and don't like anywhere near this) and so I guess I should leave room for hypothetical improvements... the robustness of body like a dark double but with the light spiciness that makes the difference. The palate is absolutely smooth and has no edges that cut at the tongue. I am trying really hard not to give this 100% because I know that there are so many things I haven't tried that I need room to manouevre but I currently can't see anything beating this.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
En sød blomstret duft, men også let bitter duft af humle. En lys gul farve med god skum. En dejlig sød smag. Karamelsmagen som man finder ved mange tripler. I sammenspil med en blomstersmag. Karbonationen er fin. Øllet prikker let på tungen og vækker smagsløgene.

After years of reading and hearing about the glories of Belgium beer, I went to a restaurant in Chicago Hopleaf, specializing in just that as well as Belgium food. I am now a true believer. I ran quickly the next day to buy some of the golden goodness I drank the night before. Triple Karleliett is a fruity, delicious wonderful beer that I am confident will lead me to still more great Belgium brews.

Decent beer, not a big fan of the whole banana, bubblegum. But this beer was very balanced. Notes of hay, floral, banana, bubblegum and some coriander.

UPDATED: APR 20, 2007 Bottle -- Golden yellow in colour with active carbonation and a dense white head that lasts well. Fruity sweetness in the aroma with a beautifully spicy edge. Not as full a mouthfeel as I’d expect. Bananas and fruitiness in the flavour with a dry finish. Superb.

I didn’t have a notepad with me so I’m not going to comment on it from memory. I’ll have to rerate this later.
