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.. Its 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: 7-8C is recommended. In 2002 this beer won the Gold Award in the World Beer Cup, San Diego, USA in the Triple category.

Trs belle robe dore transparente, avec des reflets lgrement cuivrs, surmonte dune trs paisse cume blanche bulles fines. Le nez est enchanteur et rappelle immanquablement la Tripel Karmeliet. Les armes sont riches et complexes, donc il va falloir un peu de doigt pour les dtailler... Les malts sont suaves avec des notes de miel, de chocolat au lait et de gele de coin. On distingue un ct floral fort intressant qui dispute aux notes vgtales des houblons. Le fruit nest pas en reste avec des armes nets dabricot et de pche, de kiwi, de citron vert, de pamplemousse, de raisin, de pomme, de poire, de reine-claude, de cerise griotte, de melon, de banane... Cest capiteux souhait et extrmement gourmand. En bouche, lalcool nous invite au voyage tout en souplesse et surtout, la texture est dune douceur incroyable. On dirait quon dguste un nectar de fruit, cest impressionnant ! La carbonatation est vive et vient redonner un coup de peps lensemble. Les sucres sont agrables et rappellent vraiment la Tripel Karmeliet qui pour moi est la bire qui se rapproche le plus de cette Carolus Tripel. Lamertume est l, tapie dans lombre, elle fait son office en sous-main, jamais ostentatoire mais toujours luvre, en particulier sur le bout de la langue aprs quelques secondes. On relve aussi de belles notes citronnes vivifiantes. On retrouve en bouche toutes les saveurs du nez, la fleur et le fruit en particulier labricot, omniprsent. La longueur est bonne, sur les malts, le fruit, une pointe de poivre agrable et excitante, cette trs lgre amertume et un alcool dune finesse incroyable. Le final est limage de cette triple : en douceur, riche, souple, complexe et si simple la fois. En poursuivant la dgustation aprs 10 bonnes minutes de sage repos, la bire soxygnant un peu, je retrouve des armes de fraise surpuissants que je navais pas encore dcel. Incroyable... Du trs trs grand art comme seul Het Anker et quelques autres brasseries de haute-voltige savent nous offrir... Bouteille 33cl, Boissons du Monde, Saint-Egrve.

Could probably argue that it taste, smell and look like honey. Nice large bubbles and very (dangerously) drinkable.

ozzatoadisback (156) - ITALY - MAR 11, 2017
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2017 Light orange with slightest haziness. Dense and healty white head shows good retention and nice lacing. Aroma shows dough, fresh fruitiness (peach, pear) and a pleasantly lively spiciness. Nice intensity. Taste has a sweet malty base with white bread and slight honey. Fruity notes as the smell suggested and a delicate spiciness. Overall very much on the sweet side but nicely attenuated by a hint of delicate acidity. Perfectly hidden alcohol. Medium to dense body; medium to high carbonation not compromising a pleasantly creamy, soft mouthfeel. A very good tripel.

Ub3R (4) - Bergamo, ITALY - MAR 4, 2017 does not count
Blond hazy colured with thick and persistent white hat. Floreal and acid smell with toasted flavour. The taste of caramel, malt and cereals aare predominant. High carbonation. Sweet with medium lasting bitter end. Top for tripel lovers.

LouisP (439) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 4, 2017
Une bire blonde, avec une grosse carbonatation, un peu trouble, et prsentant une petite effervescence. Au nez, la levure est bien prsente, trs poivre, avec galement des relents doranges et dagrumes au final. En bouche, cest assez effervescent, avec un got plutt floral, avec une levure belge qui est galement prsente, sans prendre lascendant. Le tout est vraiment raffin, avec des notes dagrumes galement en finale. Belle bire.

Jesper86 (114) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 13, 2017
Nice fruity smell. Lovely fine foam. Very fruity. Apricots, peaches, oranges. Bread, hint of vanilla, hint of lemon peel. Truly balanced. Not unlike a Karmeliet but perhaps a little fruitier whereas Karmeliet is creamier.
