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.

Really nice hazy orange pour with a really thick and sticky head. Nice citrusy scent. A definately tripple, and a good one. Spicy citrusy and warm. I found it a bit overcarbonated but it’s a minor complaint.

markwise (5414) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 31, 2008
Pours a hazy yellow color with a healthy white head. It foamed out of the bottle when I opened it, just like papajohn. It smells of apples, whiskey, caramel, spice, and apples, with a floral hint. The taste is very good with heavy caramel apple flavor and an alcohol presence that hints of whiskey. Good tripel.

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2008 330 ml bottle from Holiday Wine Cellar: Started foaming out of the bottle when I popped the cap. Hazy pale peach color with a small fading white head. Aroma is honey and over ripe tropical fruit. Flavor starts tropical fruit sweet followed by spice, caramel and a medium dry orangy finish. Medium body is creamy with lively carbonation.

I wasn’t extremely impressed by this beer, especially after having Het Anker’s other excellent beers. This one was just pure yeastiness. It was like a honey drenched yeast bomb. I had high expectations, but I guess abbey tripel isn’t a style of mine, as I have had bad experiences in the past.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUL 11, 2008
750ml bottle: Shimmering yellow pour with a three-finger whipped head that settles into a firm cap on top. The aroma is all yeast and honey - lots of ripe banana, pear, sweet apple - wrapped in an ethery blanket. Big, chewy mouthfeel. Hot alcohol vapor fills the mouth with each sip. Dirty, but sweet, malts offer honey and sugary toffee while the fruit esthers continue to bombard the tongue. Cool down the fusels in this and it would be more enjoyable. As is, still darn good.

MakeItDrinkIt (66) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 11, 2008
Hazy golden color with a medium slightly fluffy white head. Aroma is yeasty, grassy, lightly sweet, slightly spiced - bits of orange and cloves. Flavor is surprisingly dry for a big Belgian tripel. Spicy notes in great depth, assumedly at least in part from the yeast. Very nice complex beer that, though fairly dry, has nice fruity and never bitter qualities.
