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.

Karmeliet is een complex goud- tot bronskleurig bier met een romige schuimkraag. Dit komt onder meer door de gebruikte granen, maar ook door een beperkt gebruik van Stiermarkse hop, het overvloedig kruiden en het fruitig karakter (banaan en vanille) van de huisgist. De zoete aanzet evolueert verder in een uitgesproken sinaasappelsmaak om dan mildbitter uit te vloeien. De aanbevolen schenkingstemperatuur van Tripel Karmeliet ligt rond de 6-9 graden Celsius.

Di colore oro chiaro, velato; forma un generoso cappello di schiuma bianca, fine, cremosa e molto persistente. Al naso frumento ed un bel bouquet derivante dei lieviti usati con sentori di banana, agrumi, spezie e vaniglia. Corpo medio, carbonatazione piuttosto elevata. Dolce in bocca, con malto e frutta (soprattutto banana), riesce comunque ad essere molto secca, regalando un gradevole finale abboccato dove emerge una leggera nota di malto tostato.
