COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
First brewed 1996; claimed to be based on a recipe from 1679 which used wheat, oat and barley.
Tripel Karmeliet is a very refined and complex golden-to-bronze brew with a fantastic creamy head. These characteristics derive not only from the grains used but also from restrained hopping with Styrians and the fruity nature (banana and vanilla) of the house yeast. Aroma has hints of vanilla mixed with citrus aromas. Tripel Karmeliet has not only the lightness and freshness of wheat, but also the creaminess of oats together with a spicy lemony almost quinine dryness.

Es rubia y exhibe una espuma blanquísima. En nariz levadura, cítricos y melocotón. En boca es una auténtica pasada. La combinación de los tres granos (cebada, trigo y avena) es un acierto absoluto y una vez que has bebido el primer trago ya no quieres parar de beber. Muy carbonatada y refrescante, pero a la vez disfrutas de maravillosos matices de frutas con hueso y plátano. Final alcohólico y muy seco, de esos que te hacen estar relamiéndote un buen rato.

Дико карбонизированное пиво. Газы просто не дают почувствовать всю глубину вкуса. Но даже сквозь них можно почувствовать вкус цитруса. При жестких 8.4% алкоголь не чувствуется.

Une bière très agréable à boire qui je bois de préférence assez fraiche (elle garde tout son arôme) pour ne pas trop sentir alcool.

Aroma: spicy, malty, yeast, reins. Big white head, clear yellow color, oily texture. Taste: malty, fruity, yeast, very small bitterness, slight alcohol in the taste. Medium to full body. One good tripel.

Extremely good beer, and not trappist!!! Nice golden colour, nice hay aroma and taste! So grainy and pure and bio! So fresh and tasty, combines with cheese, fruits, meat, salmon! Nice! Not so boozy, but balanced. It is smooth and drinkable! As it has to be, when you go to monastery (not to get drunk and fall down in the church). Good price and nice tulip glass, when hit - its singing like a church bell! For me is good for age in dark room/box.

Another product of a happy baseball weekend in Chi-Town, this .75 liter bottle came home with me. I have been anxious to try Karmeliet since it is apparently held in high regard. Tilting it into a tulip glass I see a bright straw-colored body accompanied by a plentiful top of white foam. The head is replenished by a heroic amount of bubble action. Taking a smell there is cane sugar, yellow fruit and a yeast overtone. The payoff now, a sip. Yes, quite nice. It delivers peach, baked bread, a touch of clove and a surprising alcohol warming. While I like quads and dubbels generally more, this is top level stuff.
