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.

UPDATED: NOV 15, 2009 Prima impressione.. Che strano colore, un ambrato tanto acceso da sembrare arancione. Schiuma finissima, un dolcissimo profumo e un sapore che rispecchia pienamente ciò che già il naso ha potuto cogliere.. Certo, una birra da meditazione, ma è talmente particolare che penso risulterà difficile accompagnarla ad un qualsiasi pasto. Prezzo: 13,50€ per un litro.

Always enjoyable, I don’t like them it with too much age on it though. Easy to drink for the alcohol content. Aroma is sweet with some mild spice and grain. Flavor is nice and sweet, reminiscent of a barleywine with a nice citrus aspect with the sweet grain and spice. Very good.

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2009 Bottle from Sam’s; poured into Duvel glass. Pours bright, deep, hazy golden with huge white head that recedes but maintains. Nose of bananas, citrus, coriander, yeast, honey, honeysuckle, apples, and lovely floral notes (but not at all soapy). Bit of white pepper. Perhaps a little on the sweet side for a tripel, but finishes nicely dry.

330 ml bottle - pale yellow with thick, eggy white head; steady csrbonaton with tasty aromas of honey, sweet flowers, yeasty spice, apples; fizzy texture with sweet, fruity mouthful and dry finish; hazy gold with soft, delicate flavors of honey, lemons, grass and malty sweetness; just an amazing brew all around; lovely on draft but doesn’t do as well in the 750’s as in the 330’s IMO

On tap at Ølbaren. Pours clear yellow with a big fluffy white head. Aroma is perfumed and sweet with notes of orange peal, coriander, caramel and spices. The flavour follows the aroma closely but has a sweet honey note and even more coriander to it. Very nice and spicy beer but also a little to sweet.

LanceUppercut (139) - SWEDEN - SEP 24, 2009
A faint nose of grass, cucumber and soil. Taste is of yeast, soil, grass and citrus. There is some saltiness and the alcohol is well hidden. Easy to drink, but otherwise I’m not a big fan of this one.

Teege (375) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 24, 2009
Bottle at redlight redlight. Good solid tripel. Golden in color and crisp on the palate. Nice subtle funkiness that nicely compliments the notes of bread and fruit. I would write more, but I have to go because my girlfriend is tired.
