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.

puboflyons (3274) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 17, 2016
From the 750 ml. bottle dated 13/04/2015. It pours a handsome looking golden tone with a foamy cream colored head on top that lingers and laces. The aroma emits an enchanting floral, rose, or blossom character with some apple or pear a little underneath. No booze for 9%. Medium to full body. Smooth and creamy too. A big floral, flowery taste with a hint of apple and an herbal and pepper-like finish. Just delightful.
