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.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2020 Bottiglia. Colore giallo chiaro. Schiuma fine e abbastanza persistente. Al naso si sentono note di caramello, miele, spezie e luppolo. In bocca domina il dolce durante tutta la bevuta. Corpo medio e buona carbonazione. Ottima tripel

BojanM (271) - Banja Luka, BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA - JAN 15, 2020
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2020 Zlatnozute boje, bijela pjena srednje debljine, veoma trajna. Arome citrusa, kvasca, alkohola, blago voća i karamela. Naziru se i elementi ljutog. Srednje gorčine, veoma dugog, blago gorkog finiša. Uljane teksture, jake, oštre karbonizacije. Hvala zeni na poklonu iz Belgije!

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2020 Acheté à la SAQ du centre-ville de St-Hyacinthe. La bière est d’un blond très transparente et produit une fine mousse blanche persistante. Il s’en dégage des arômes très fruités autant au goût qu’au nez. Elle est très sucré et peux amer. Il s’agit d’une triple belge asser classique mais un peu plus sucré qu’à l’habitude. Un régal.

edward78 (63) - West Wickham, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2020
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2020 Bottle from Waitrose. Pours a hazy golden/yellow colour with a huge fluffy white head. Aromas of lemon, banana, spice, coriander, bubblegum, candi sugar, pepper, floral notes, grass and yeast. Taste is similar to the aroma with some added herbal notes. Nicely carbonated. Thin to medium bodied. Fairly sweet but with a slight bitterness which makes it well balanced. Quite complex. Still a little bit too sweet for my liking. Pretty good but i was expecting a bit more if I’m honest. Will try again in the near future.

asimeow (305) - Sandsli, NORWAY - JAN 1, 2020
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2020 0.33l bottle. Pours golden yellow with a massive white head. Took forever to calm down. Lingering coat of white head all through the drinking. Aroma is yeasty and wheaty. Not a big fan of blondes and weiss, but I'll give this a go. Instant hit of wheat on the tongue, a sour, almost metallic middle and a yeasty finish. Just not my cup of brew.

Scipio (1816) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - DEC 31, 2019
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2019 Pours a cloudy golden with a full, fizzy white head. The aroma consists of yeast, bread, banana, wheat, and subtle orange. Moving to the taste, wheat is most potent. Bread and banana are moderate in strength, then slight lemon, yeast and spice, and hints of clove. Wheat aftertaste. Its medium in body and slick in texture. Solid, but others appreciate this one more than I do.

ianwelby (2415) - Hamilton, SCOTLAND - DEC 31, 2019
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2019 Hazy golden beer. Thin head. Malty aroma. Zesty with a bit of caramel, grassy hop but a malty base. Nicely balanced and very tasty.

robinshute123 (221) - Torquay, Devon, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2019
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2019 Strong tripel beer. Smells of wheet and sweet. Taste is typical tripple beer but done very well, definitely worth a try for sure :)

ilk.youdontsay (4) - - DEC 23, 2019 does not count
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2019 Comes in bottles of 0.33l. Is a delicious gold beer with a taste of citrus, apple and yeast and with a slight hint of vanilla. It is mildly carbonated, has a citrus after taste. It’s colour is cloudy yellow. It’s an amazing beer, one of the best I ever had.

javleon (86) - Barcelona, SPAIN - DEC 23, 2019
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2019 Una cerveza bastante clara, con cierto dorado muy claro. Con buena retención. Un olor como a banana, con ciertos toques a vainilla. Sabe muy parecido a una Hefe, por el trigo. Ciertos toques a avena y un toque al final un tanto fuerte. Se siente muy poco el alcohol que lleva. te sorprende porque con 8.4% de grado alcohólico te esperas un sabor menos suave. Bastante buena.
