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.

Voil un vritable chef doeuvre... Une gouden carolus, cest--dire bien sr une golden carolus, une vraie bire dor. Une triple 9 % abv... Un trs beau programme. En plus mon exemplaire tait exactement au jour prs sa date limite! Une vritable fte, un rcital, une bire qui force ladmiration et le respect. Couleur comme jai dit dun dor brillant profond... Bulles moyennes fines partout dans le verre. Mousse blanc/beige qui nappe juste le liquide, et fait son travail de texture. Odeur superbe de prunes blanches, figues, abricot, bl et une pointe de genivre... Le volume est soyeux comme il convient... La premire bouche est dun grand dgagement sur la crale et le houblon (cest--dire la dfinition mme de la bire); avec du fruit blanc et du ft d armagnac... (on peut faire pire...) La 2me bouche est un quilibre parfait levure/crale/houblon. Que dire? La 3me montre une pointe dalcool et de vin blanc en vendanges tardives, avec du cognac fins bois et du malt du speyside (on peut faire pire...) La longueur est trs complexe entre fruit, bois et fleur de houblon. La levure est douce, fine, complexe, structure. Trs belle. Lalcool est progressif, surperbe, et tout fait adquat une triple. La finale, cest extrmement simple: tout y est. Donc, une bire style, complte, de grand savoir-faire. Un trophe mrit.

Wow. Best beer I ever had. Amazing aromas with multiple stages. Same with flavor. So drinkable and fruity almost like a honey cider. For a 9 percent is very smooth

From a bottle. beautiful 2-3 finger wonderful white head as good as Duvel, vanilla, small citrus flavor, this ale is top shelf Belgan, I am in love although I love everything Carolus brews. Mouthfeel is refreshing not overly carbonated - next to Chimay one of my all time Belgium favorites - I mistakenly wrote this for the blond beer which I have never tried - sorry.

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

Teran (316) - Belgrade, SERBIA - DEC 31, 2014
Champagne Brut method bubbles attack. One of the best beer carbonation ever. Nice nose, cloudy with white average head. Belgian beer spice. Alcohol is strong but well hidden. Master art.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - AUG 11, 2006
Pours yellow golden honey w/ a huge spritzy froth leaving a small puddle of golden nectar at the top. Aroma is fresh w/ hops and sharp malt. Medium to full nectar w/ ample residual effers w/ a few streams of champagne bubbles. Flavors are rich and slightly fruity w/ banana gum, pine, honey, sharp malt. Complex and well balanced. Not too fruity. Slight alcohol on the finish w/ perfect bittering. Connoisseurs choice!

Lele (477) - Padova, ITALY - JAN 26, 2015
ASPETTO: biondo carico e limpido, schiuma bianca, fine e persistente (ne rimane sempre nel bicchiere). AROMA: stupendo aroma floreale (giglio e gelsomino), unito ad un dolce mieloso. GUSTO: tendente al dolce senza mai essere stucchevole, in quanto bilanciati da dellagrumato e da un leggero amarognolo nellultima parte del sorso e nel retrogusto. I sentori predominanti sono comunque il fruttato (frutta gialla) e mieloso. Capolavoro di tripel.
