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.

jhumphries69 (1034) - Tyrone, Georgia, USA - APR 28, 2008
33cl bottle. Pours a hazy gold with highlights of tan and dirty yellow. The head pours up white in color and medium in size. Small spots of lace are left on the glass but not much. The aroma is richly perfumey with resiny, oily, spicy aromatics and some notes of sweet fruit and cakey malts. The fruity aromas are hard to place - tropical, perhaps some citrus, fruity liqueur (thanks to the hint of ethanol in the aroma), and made more interesting with a touch of exotic spice. The flavor is complex, just like the nose. There is a strong fruitiness at the tip of the tongue - melons, papaya, mango, pineapple, and citrus.As the beer travels slightly back - squarely between tip of tongue and mid-palate - spices emerge along with tartness and a touch of sharp alcohol flavors. At mid-palate, there is an earthy bitterness combined with bitterness from the alcohol which balance sweet malts, tropical fruit esters, and a light peppery spice. A bready malt flavor also becomes apparent, including a strong taste of wheat. The finish is crisp and long, fairly dry, and alcoholic. The mouthfeel is crisp and rich - both well carbonated and oily and somewhat thick. As the beer warms the flavor of ethanol strengthens, giving the finish a boozy character. Overall, a wonderfully complex Belgian Tripel.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - APR 25, 2008
Pours gold with a white head. Smells of bubblegum, oranges, dry malt, light spice, perfume. Tastes of citrus with a semi dry finish and some residual spice. Decent.

WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 25, 2008
This was wonderful. Belgian appearance; rich golden body, huge head. Nose of a tripel ... bread and yeast. Taste of a tripel, bread, yeast, with a longer and more bitter finish than I expected. Wonderfully creamy palate.

ApisAles (1575) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - APR 19, 2008
On tap at Brasserie Beck in Washington DC. Nice golden color with a big fluffy head. Slightly hoppy, clean finish and easy to drink. A touch harsh on the back end though. Good beer

Orange pour very neat colour, head thin back to mild froth cover,very ample carbonation.Aroma,stonefruit,malt,citrus,clove,van sweetness throughout,a lovely mellow tasting triple,the 9% al vol is hidden by good flavours.Hints of coriander at the finish,bit of clove and ginger,like this range of ales.

ElGaucho56 (394) - USA - APR 12, 2008
Pours a clear light gold with big fluffy, soapy white head. Strong belgian grassy hop nose along with peachy sweet fruits. Very well carbonated, perhaps too much, on the palate, starting with honey golden malts before a sharp, catty, vegetable-like hop bitterness takes over into the long, mildly dry finish. An interesting tripel, but not too easy-going.

Bottle in Antwerp ... yellow lots fo small bubbles and a bubbly head ... yeasty hop nose ... over fizzy ... lots fo light fruit and belgian hops.
