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.

Pours a cloudy golden color into the tulip glass. An inch of fluffy white head stuck around for a while. Scents of bananas, malt and spices. Beautiful fruity tastes with malt and yeast in the finish. Excelleny tripel.

ONE OF MY FAVORITES, AN ABSOLUTE PARTY IN THE MOUTH, POURS A CLOUDY GOLDEN COLOR, AROMA IS SWEET, LIKE FRUITS OR ALMOST CANDY, FLAVOR IS THE SAME, HINTS OF HONEY AND FRUIT WITH THAT VERY PRESENT 9% ALC, FULL MOUTH, NOT A VERY LINGERING AFTERTASTE BUT GOES DOWN SMOOTH, AND LEAVES YOU IN A SMOOTH STATE, VERY GOOD

mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - DEC 21, 2007
Pous a lightly cloudy gold color, with a medium frothy white head. smells of Belgian candy sugar, sticky sweet fruits, and some yeast. Nice sharp smell. The flavor was much the same, with all the standard flavors of a tripel. Not overly sweet, with a definite good dosage of alcohol which was noticeable throughout. The fruits seem to keep the sweetness at bay for the most part. Not my favorite style, but this is well crafted.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2008 Pours a cloudy golden color with thick, foamy white head. Nice fuity aroma of apple, pear and grape. Very pleasantly crisp with hints of lighter fruits such as apple, pear and grape with a nice alcohol balance rendering it not too sweet. I enjoyed this beer very much.

Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 5, 2007
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden yellow with some sediment. Nose was sweet and fruity. Head was big and frothy, left nice lacing. On the palet it was very creamy. Again very fruity and sweet. A great triple!

Oakes (16106) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 2, 2007
UPDATED: APR 24, 2010 Slightly hazy yellow-tan. No head. The aroma is lemony with some limey notes - kind of sugary like a soda, too. The palate is lemony and fresh, with a mellow malt backing and just enough hop dryness to pull it all together. OK brew, better than last time I had it.

DeadGuyFrank (347) - http://westchesterbeer.com, USA - NOV 26, 2007
Mild banana and spice aroma, beautiful head, golden and delicious. Floral notes and some caramel, plenty of yeast flavor throughout. A great beer.

billk (353) - Coeur dAlene, Idaho, USA - NOV 21, 2007
bottle 11.2 oz. Hazy amber gold with large white head that shimmers and seems viscous & sticky. Aroma is spicey, mildly sweet malt, roasted caramelized sugars, Belgian yeast and some perfume, mild herbs with a floral trace of Benedictine. Flavor is medium body, silky smooth, creamy malt with the characteristics described in the aroma. This is a refined quality triple. Nice complexity. Alcohol is warming and noticable but not distracting.

EHSRanders (2015) - Tjele, DENMARK - NOV 17, 2007
Bottle. Hazy yellow colour with large creamy white mostly lasting head. Fruity aroma. Sweet fruity flavor with notes of yeast and alcohol.
