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.

This beer gave me the twitch when I first sipped, swirled, breathed in and then swallowed. You know that twitch your body does when it tastes something delicious? Yea, that Listening to Roo Panes - Open Roads is just a plus

Bottle. Hazy pale gold. Nice, fairly lively carbonation. Malty base (sweet malts, light caramel). Fruity (oranges, apples). Yeasty & spicy. Hoppy (floral hops). Very nice fruit/malt/hop/yeast/spice balance. Very smooth, soft (not harsh), subtle. ABV not noticeable. Sweet fruity malty spicy taste. Very nice Tripel. (2008)

Jesper86 (84) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 13, 2017
Nice fruity smell. Lovely fine foam. Very fruity. Apricots, peaches, oranges. Bread, hint of vanilla, hint of lemon peel. Truly balanced. Not unlike a Karmeliet but perhaps a little fruitier whereas Karmeliet is creamier.

TrefwoordPunk (1047) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - FEB 11, 2017
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a hazy yellow to golden with a medium bubbly white head and an aroma of banana, pear, ripe fruits, yeast, mandarin, toffee, coreander, malts and lime. The taste is medium sweet with a nice medium lasting bitter finish. Really nice

Bijl (398) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 9, 2017
Goudgeel, witte schuimkraag die blijft, licht wazig, veel koolzuur zichtbaar. Aroma: Kruidig, koriander, peper, iets munt, Belgische gist. Smaak: Kruidigheid en spicy pepers net als in het aroma, lekker fruitig zoet, iets bloemen, moutig en licht bitter met een mooie Belgische gist smaak van kruidnagel en banaan en peer.....zelf wat bubblegum. Mooi subtiel met iets alcohol warmte......erg makkelijk drinkbaar voor zon hoge ABV. Volle body, afdronk is fruitig en kruidig. Keyword is: BALANS! Top tripel.

0,75l bottle from Saveur Biere. Clear, light golden beer with big cloudy head. Aroma is strong and wonderful. It has flowers, soap, exotic fruits and cereal + spicy pepper. Taste has also quality. It has exotic fruits, spicy pepper, flowers and malts & toffee. Aftertaste has lots of spicy pepper. Full body, but refreshing and easy to drink. Very high quality beer with spicy and fresh fruits.
