COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In spite of modern brewing technology, this beer is brewed according to ancient traditions. It unites, now as in the past, the best products of our soil: rich barley and fine hops.. It’s refined character, with a pure and rich taste, will captivate you. It is matured at length in cellar and bottle, and is guaranteed to be brewed only from pale malts. It is traditionally top-fermented and is 100% pure. The Gouden Carolus Triple has a unique colour and a full flavour due to its well-balanced hopping. To properly savour the Golden Carolus “Triple”, pour slowly in one movement leaving the yeast deposit in the bottle. This beer may be served cool but not chilled: 7-8°C is recommended. In 2002 this beer won the Gold Award in the World Beer Cup, San Diego, USA in the “Triple” category.

jjsint (3428) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2017
Bottle from Cafe Bruxelles, Leicester. Golden and almost clear with a big foamy white head. Banana and candy sugar yeast in the aroma.Sweet yeasty taste with just a touch of metallic flavour nearing the finish.body is slight thin although this is buoyed up by heavy carbonation. Sweet spice, sourdough, lemon drops, banana and some soap in the aftertaste. A nice Tripel but not my favourite.

Where Purchased: 330ml bottle from a mixer pack at the LCBO Consumed: from a chalice provided in the mixer pack Aroma: Smells sweet, slight malt and a little booze. Appearance : unfiltered medium gold with thick head that disperses to a nice layer of head that lasts to the last drop. Excellent sticky lacing. Taste: sweet, malty with just a hint of hops. Booze almost non existent. Palate : medium body. Sweet aftertaste. Good carbonation. Overall: Its hard to mess up a Tripel, but man this one delivered. One of the best examples I've had. You would never know it was 9% ABV. BUY IT. I was glad to try and will buy again. MB. The Beer "Bear"on.

Cloudy gold hue. Wonderful fluffy white head. An unctuous smell — whoa — I forgot how good this is. Rich, complex, yet delicate. The classic elements of a Belgian triple are there: clove, banana, bubble gum, but none truly stand out, they are perfectly married together under a shower of flower petals. Rose and lilac bring a unique floral aroma that brightens the heavier caramel undertones.. Super fluffy on the palate, it starts with a burst of juicy nectar, mango, passion fruit, orange zest and coriander. Grainy malts fill in the texture and cover the 9% ABV. Ends on a spicy dry note, with light hops that linger until the next sip. Fantastic.

chromeotaphor (175) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 15, 2017
Forse schuimkraag wolkig en bubbelig, met redellijke carbonatie. Bitter zoet honing achtig aroma. Pittig kruidig maar toch zacht in de afdronk en complexiteit. Aanradar deze tripel!

Piepenhenrich (1170) - Steinbach, GERMANY - SEP 10, 2017
This is one good Tripel! Pours hazy golden with a beautiful thick creamy head that lasts well. Combination of fruity and grainy flavors, very tender bitterness, well-balanced. Good!

Carolus, moet hierbij met weemoed aan me broertje denken. Wat was het moment dat we elkaar uit het oog verloren? Vermoedelijk toen hij dat tegen kwam. Maar goed biertje redelijk beetje zurig niet onaangenaam. Ziet er leuk uit maar naar mijn mening iets te licht geel voor een trippel. (Was was ook echt me eerste indruk) Omdanks alles heeft ook een fantastische schuimkraag die gewoon niet weg gaat en dan hebben we het niet eens hoe het schuim aan het glas blijft hange of is het gewoon plakken.. Smaakt niet eens geheel subtiel maar de smaak naar honing is onmiskenbaar. Dat!!! Bittertje ok� het heeft het niet te zacht maar vooral niet te sterk dat zou dit biertje zo ontsieren!. Fijne malt iets fruitigs ergens maar naar maar mijn mening gewoon iets te zacht. Maar ondanks zeker geen verkeerd biertje! Maar voel het zuur en het bitter was ooit anders maar of het ooit goed komt :-(

Padchenko (376) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 29, 2017
Pours pale cloudy yellow with thick white head. Sweet, bready, citrus fruit (lemon), floral notes, tropical fruit also (mango or papaya). Strong and tasty

3.5
martpez (282) - Norwich, Norfolk, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2017
Strong taste of yeast and alcohol. Some caraway seeds or other slight herb taste. Taste not overally complex for a tripel. Its good but far from the best example of the style.
