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.

small bottle. Pours a cloudy orange/gold with a very tall and well formed white head. I’m surpsised at the sheer amount of pepper in the aroma. I’ve noticed other similar beers suggest pepper, but this one is excedingly rich in vegetal aromas. I also get lemon, banana, and soft spices. The palate is delightfully creamy while the flavor leans more towards fruits and dry spices than in the vegetal direction. This is a very smooth and complete package. It has just a tinge of wildness and a solid fruity sweet foundation. It’s delicate, yet robust. Very well done tripel.

UPDATED: OCT 10, 2008 Standard tripel pour, decent head. Aroma is fruity and sweet. Taste is strawberry, banana, lovely clear hop flavour, not too dry with a pleasant sweet finish. Excellent beer.

LadySusan (766) - Ste-Therese, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 7, 2008
Taster at The Mondial de la biere 08 in Montreal. The color is a hazy blonde with a white head. The aroma is pleasant. The taste is of malt and grapes and citrus fruits, with just a bit of hops. This is a very very good example of a tripel sbbey.

harrisoni (18000) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2008
Bottle from Dranken Geers. Gold, thick rocky head. Perfumed aroma. It’s rather a good tripel, nice strongish hop on the finish. Slight peach on aroma. Settles down into an alright tripel. I quite liked it. Decent hop on finish. Bit of hot alcohol.

emacgee (4661) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - AUG 28, 2008
Pours a pale hazy yellow with a two finger creamy white head. The nose was sweet, yeasty, grapes, spicy, some white pepper, cardamom, orange peel and lemongrass show as it warms. The flavor was sweet, nice spicy/yeasty character, curacao, hoppyness shows as it warms, peppery. I’d have to say this is one of my favorite tripels, very nice and very gratifying as it warms.

Wait a minute, Ethan just turned 21? I have been contributing to his delinquency for over a year now! Gold pour with a slight haze. Fluff white head a typical Gouden lace. Complex aroma, very fruity. Flavor is loads of fruit, malts and yeast. Well balanced and complex!
