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.

330 ml bottle, nice appearance and aroma with medium taste. Good but not that good as other tripels.

L�tt disig gyllengul �l med ett vitt skum. Doft och smak �r fruktig med estrar och kryddig belgisk j�st. En klassisk tripel..

A popular one that I sought and found at SAQ in Hull. Not to bad, a bit too strong for me.

0.33l bottle. Pours golden colour with medium size white head, clear liquid. Aroma of flowers, hay, caramel. Highly sweet, low bitterness, no sourness. Full body, thick feel, long lasting warm alcohol aftertaste with honey notes

Huge white frothy head stayed all the way on a hazy lemon coloured body. Medium bodied, soft on the palate & tingly on the back. Banana, Belgian yeast, sweet citrus, spice & a bitter finish.

Bière puissante qui crée une mousse épaisse et persistante sur une robe blond doré. Avec cette bière, "on part sur du très lourd".

UPDATED: AUG 17, 2017 Pretty much impossible to say which one’s the best between this one and the Classic variant. Just a matter of personal tastes in my opinion. I prefer the classic one, but this Tripel is incredibly good, exactly what I want when I’m looking for a great abbey beer. Strong taste in mouth and interesting abv, perfect for any occasion. Give a try to any Carolus beer you may find, these are among the best Belgian beers you can get. APPROVED BY TAVERNY’S BLACK METAL CREW!

Bottle. Appearance is clre golden with nice white head. Aroma and taste is yeast, citrus, bread and floral. Some alcohol is present in the taste also.

Shared at a get together at ebone1988’s house with Matt and Jennifer on July 08. 330 mL bottle. The pour is a darker cloudy golden color with a large off white head and a good bit of soapy lacing as it falls down. The aroma carries a strong floral fruitiness right up front. There is a ton of banana on this, but there is nothing spicy or clove heavy about it. It’s amazing. The sweetness is great, and I just love the lack of clove. The flavor is much of the same. The heavy banana and fruitiness jump righto ut of the gate with a nice sweet floral addition to it. It’s sweet, a little delicate, but complex, and lacking clove. The mouth feel is decently medium bodied with a softer carbonation and a lingeringly floral banana and tropical fruitiness on the back end. Not too bad at all! 8 4 8 4 16

One of the old well-known Belgian tripels, already known for decades. Long time ago, since I drank it. Bottle pours hazy light-golden, with firm white head, that quickly falls down. Aroma is nice and sweet, ripe fruits, banana, vanilla; light malty also. Taste is rather sweet, with no particular development. This is a better one among the general Belgian tripels; well balanced, and although not special/surprising attractive.

I came to Brussels thinking I didn’t like tripels. I had always thought they were too high alcohol, too boozy and often too sweet in order to balance out the booze. This beer almost single-handedly proved me so wrong. Absolute perfection as far as taste is concerned.
