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.

ozzatoadisback (173) - 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.

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.

Une bière blonde, avec une grosse carbonatation, un peu trouble, et présentant une petite effervescence. Au nez, la levure est bien présente, très poivrée, avec également des relents d’oranges et d’agrumes au final. En bouche, c’est assez effervescent, avec un goût plutôt floral, avec une levure belge qui est également présente, sans prendre l’ascendant. Le tout est vraiment raffiné, avec des notes d’agrumes également en finale. Belle bière.

Bottle. Hazy pale gold. Nice, fairly lively carbonation. Malty base (sweet malts, light caramel). Fruity (oranges, apples). Yeasty & spicy. Hoppy (floral hops). Very nice fruit/malt/hop/yeast/spice balance. Very smooth, soft (not harsh), subtle. ABV not noticeable. Sweet fruity malty spicy taste. Very nice Tripel. (2008)

Jesper86 (138) - 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.

3.7
TrefwoordPunk (1206) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - FEB 11, 2017
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a hazy yellow to golden with a medium bubbly white head and an aroma of banana, pear, ripe fruits, yeast, mandarin, toffee, coreander, malts and lime. The taste is medium sweet with a nice medium lasting bitter finish. Really nice

Bijl (636) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 9, 2017
Goudgeel, witte schuimkraag die blijft, licht wazig, veel koolzuur zichtbaar. Aroma: Kruidig, koriander, peper, iets munt, Belgische gist. Smaak: Kruidigheid en spicy pepers net als in het aroma, lekker fruitig zoet, iets bloemen, moutig en licht bitter met een mooie Belgische gist smaak van kruidnagel en banaan en peer.....zelf wat bubblegum. Mooi subtiel met iets alcohol warmte......erg makkelijk drinkbaar voor zo’n hoge ABV. Volle body, afdronk is fruitig en kruidig. Keyword is: BALANS!  Top tripel.
