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.

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.

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.

Bottle. Pours a a light amber with a large creamy white head. Sweet fruit aroma, no alcohol. Flavor is sweet as well, very prominent malt. Sweet dry quick finish.

MrChopin (4305) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 3, 2008
Pours cloudy amber-gold with bubbly white head. Scents of bananas, pepper, yeast, and a dusty background. Dust reflected in flavor and coupled with sweeter malts. A sticky triple, which contrasts the dry character. An interesting tripel, but not one of my favorites.

Lubiere (14192) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 30, 2008
A hazy golden ale with a thick creamy white head. A pleasant aroma of juniper, candy sugar and warming alcohol. In mouth, a spicy savoury ale with coriander, cream, warming alcohol and almost coconut like notes. Very interesting. Bieropholie import, tasted around May 2007.

eboats (1115) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 28, 2008
Bottled. Pours deep orange with some small light sediment pieces floating around and a white head. Aroma is banana, clove, slight hint of barbasol shaving cream, belgian yeast, and spices. Flavor is sweet belgian yeast, banana, and well spiced. Good solid body with a slight hint of barbasol throughout the experience.

11.2oz. Hazy golden pour with a white head. Spice and malt in the aroma. Hoppy and hugely fruity - apples, pear nectar, tangerine. Matching flavor - sticky and sweet. Decent finish. Nice beer.

3.3
rocbyter (2165) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - JUN 27, 2008
Light fruit malt aroma. Cloudy golden color with a large white head. Light beginning with a tangy and sweet middle. The sweetness fades in the finish leaving a strong tangy aftertaste.

Taverner (1103) - San Ramon, California, USA - JUN 18, 2008
Aroma is fresh bananas. Flavor has a hop bite with a sweet body. Like an evil ex :) Bitter finish with sweet notes. Definite Bazooka Bubblegum notes in this one.
