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.

Look: orange, hazy, not very stable white head. Aroma: fruity, slighlty sweet and rotten, light spicy notes. Taste: light sweetness, light astringency, very light spicy bitterness. Flavour: rotten apricotes, ground black pepper, corieander, light yeasty notes. Finish is slightly astringent with light candy sweetness. I prefer other kind of tripel, that is more dry and spicy. However this is a good belgian strong beer.

Hazy orange with a white head. Immediatly after pouring theres a strong aroma of orange peel and spices floating in the air. Tastes like a standard triple, sweet but not too much, and I can feel a little of alchool in the the troat. A bit boring honestly, better stick to the Classic.

From bottle. Pours a cloudy straw with medium head and good retention. Aroma is sweet and perfumed in a good way. Drinks as the aroma, with nice sweetness and a bit of perfume a hint of bitterness and a little gassy. Very interesting and complex beer

Remains a classical divine beer. Brilliant, but I will not drive half an hour to get such a bottle.

UPDATED: DEC 11, 2016 Zeer lekkere tripel, met een volle en hartige smaak. Hop en mout, graan. Pittig bier. Geslaagd.

Aukedebier (21) - KAUTTUA, FINLAND - NOV 14, 2016
Bought from drankdozijn in a 750ml bottle. Appearance: Nice golden, slightly fuzzy beer with a nice white head. Smell: fruity, malty and herbal. Taste: fruity, alcohol and spices with mild hops at the end. Rather complex palate. Almost too complex. Should drink it like wine. Very interesting.

Malt/aroma combination reminds honey notes. Not as complex as I used to expect from tripels, rather decent, not much notes from coriander. One time try. I think the yeast used is ... too simple kind. Almost no fruity esters in aroma.

cattaneopapa (365) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 5, 2016
330ml bottle from LCBO. 9.0% alc./vol. Pours an opaque deep gold colour with two finger of lasting head. Aromas of banana esters from the yeast, light citrus notes of grapefruit and oranges, and moderate spice notes of coriander. Taste of bananas, citrus, apples, with notes of black pepper. Creamy mouthfeel. Reminds me of Tripel Karmeliet. Excellent, I love it.
