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.

electrotype (654) - Montreal, Quebec, - JUN 14, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 15, 2014 Un corps parfait et satisfaisant.. On sait immédiatement qu’on a à faire à une excellente bière! Ce n’est pas une bière qui tente de repousser les limites, elle n’explore pas de nouveaux horizons, mais elle représente définitivement bien son style! Une bière ronde, complète, poivrée et qui cache merveilleusement bien son alcool. Pour les personnes demeurant au Québec : procurez-vous sans faute cette bière, maintenant disponible à la SAQ, avant qu’elle ne disparaisse!

Zilb (210) - Fontenay Sous Bois, FRANCE - DEC 2, 2016
Bue 1 an et 5 mois avant DLC. Bière blonde, pas de carbo, fin col de mousse à tenue exceptionnelle. Arômes exceptionnels de fruits jaunes : poire, banane, pêche...? Final sur le fruit, le sucre un peu épicée. Très belle rondeur. Enorme bière ! Peut être ma bière préférée ?

Aukedebier (13) - KAUTTUA, FINLAND - NOV 14, 2016
Bought from drankdozijn in a 750ml bottle. Appearance: Nice golden, slightly fuzzy beer with a nice white head. Smell: fruity, malty and herbal. Taste: fruity, alcohol and spices with mild hops at the end. Rather complex palate. Almost too complex. Should drink it like wine. Very interesting.

zenkis (799) - Ogre, LATVIA - NOV 8, 2016
Malt/aroma combination reminds honey notes. Not as complex as I used to expect from tripels, rather decent, not much notes from coriander. One time try. I think the yeast used is ... too simple kind. Almost no fruity esters in aroma.

cattaneopapa (342) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 5, 2016
330ml bottle from LCBO. 9.0% alc./vol. Pours an opaque deep gold colour with two finger of lasting head. Aromas of banana esters from the yeast, light citrus notes of grapefruit and oranges, and moderate spice notes of coriander. Taste of bananas, citrus, apples, with notes of black pepper. Creamy mouthfeel. Reminds me of Tripel Karmeliet. Excellent, I love it.

Hazy orange pour, large white head. Bready, yeasty, lots of lemon zest, tropical fruit, and hints of banana. Very lively mouth feel, and carb. Medium bitterness, refreshing, and crisp. More zesty hops and yeasty esters with tropical fruit. Great tripel.
