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.

hobbersr (690) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 27, 2008
Pours a glden orange out of the bottle with a massive bubbly white head. Aromas of soft fruits (banana, pear, papaya), floral notes, and bready yeast. Mouth feel is great! light airy bubbles fill your mouth and surround your tongue. Flavors are fairly similar to the nose, soft fruits, floral notes, some citrus (lemon), and a bready yeast. Nice slightly bitter finnish from the hops. Very good beer.

750ml Bottle: Aroma of yeast, pears, nectar, light cloves, slight lemon, slight caramel, and slight pepper. Poured gold/yellow/light orange in color with a large, fluffy, creamy, white head that lasted throughout. Cloudy. Sparkling. Full of tiny particles throughout. Good lacing.

Slightly sticky, slightly chalky texture. Average to lively carbonation. Sweet, floral, pollen finish is lightly dry.

Pale yellow color with a fluffy white head. Aromas of wheat, citrus, and bananas. Strong flavor - mostly lemon and banana. Smooth on the palate, well-hidden alcohol, nice finish. Definitely an above average tripel.

Straling (364) - Hoensbroek, NETHERLANDS - OCT 25, 2008
Bottle 33cl. Pours a murky golden colour with a big head and almost no carbonation. Very clear and fruity sweet smell. Oranges, apple and raisins there, also some others smells I can’t exactly define. Taste is very fruity and welcoming, great flavour and goes down with a slight bit of warmth. Great Abbey Tripel!

kenster (4) - , TAIWAN - OCT 24, 2008 does not count
Pours a dark golden color. Not overly cloudy. Lacing on the glass as you drink. Aroma of banna and bubble gum. Well balanced flavor, the hops are subdued and the taste is spicy and a bit sweet.

FatPhil (16102) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 15, 2008
330ml bottle (Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam)
Opened with a pop, small foam snake appeared soon afterwards. Needed 2 glasses it was so full of head. Hazy straw colour, when the glass-sized head had settled - there was no chance to minimise the yeast that came over. Sweet fruity aroma - apples and peaches - at first. Pleasant pale malts come over next, then a touch of flowery perfume. Very light and crisp. Unbelievably soft palate, the carbonation that created the head doesn’t fizz in the mouth at all. Loads of retronasal esters, almost bubble-gummy in places. Taste is full, sweet, and soft light malts. Hops are very restrained, quite clear but not imposing, altogether pretty well balanced. Finish is pale malts and slightly grassy noble hops. Covers the alcohol very well, there’s no hint of any kick to this at all. Stunning beer.

Narnad (1521) - Crystal Lake, Illinois, USA - OCT 10, 2008
Found a bottle of this recently for cheap. Poured a very hazy orange color, almost like unfiltered apple juice. Aroma is very strong of raw banana and some sweet hops. Flavor is very complex. Starts off very sweet of pear and moves into a slightly spicy clove flavor. Ends with a very smooth hops bitterness and leaves an almost Hallertauer hops flavor at the end. Very fine carbonation and not a lot of alcohol taste for a 9% beer. One weird aspect of this beer is that it makes your taste buds feel as if baby orajel was rubbed on them. Tongue is not numb, only your taste buds. But this feel eventually subsides. Another aspect of this beer is the fact that the banana and clove flavor don’t determine its flavor. Very well rounded, smooth and surprisingly heavy beer. Great beer!

3.8
malrubius (2898) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - OCT 8, 2008
11.2 ounce bottle in Duvel glass. Hazy orange with flat white head and some lace. Yeasty spicy orange tobacco aroma. Sweet honey orange spicy with mild tobacco bitterness and lingering orangy spiciness. Medium body and carbo. Nice mouthfeel. Very good. I know this is a great beer, having had it many times. But, once again, tryng to get fresh beer around here in Long Island is very difficult.
