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.

Poured a medium, hazy golden/yellow with an averaged sized head. Taste and aromas of fruit, flowers and spices. Just a hint sweet.

Bottle pours hazy yellow with a big head. Big yeasty aroma! Sweet body with a dry swallow. Some fruitiness but more subdued than other tripels I have had.

300 cl bottle (big!) at my 40 years party - shared with yngwie and 50 others. A bit hazy golden/amber color, white head. Aroma is most of all fruit and yeast. Flavor is fruity, sweet, malty, yeast and hints of citrus. Lovely.

Served 2/22/09 @ 35 F in chilled Czech Pilsner. Aroma of hay, herbs dough, leather. Appeared golden hazy. Taste of light sweetness, light bitter, moderate sour. Medium body think texture, lively carbonation.

I live nearby the town where this excellent beer is created. I like the tripel karmeliet in the summer while enjoying a nice barbecue. The taste is a bit sweet with some hints of vanilla, citrus and honey.

Poor white head. Disapointing palate.Strong citrus/honey taste at first, smootly replaced by pears/floral yeast taste. Good, but far away from good typical belgian tripel.

Straight forward, clean, dick-in-the-dirt tripel. Very effervescent and smooth. Delicious.

Bouteille de 330 ml. Nos yeux observe une bière de couleur or-cuivrée et un col de mousse imposant et durable. Au nez on respire des arômes de blé, de fleurs, de fruits (pêche-mangue) sur un fond subtil d’alcool. En bouche le corps est rond avec une effervescence faible-moyenne. On goûte des saveurs de céréales fraîches, de levure fruitée et de houblon floral. La finale présente une légère présence d’alcool qui enrobe le fruité. À noter qu’une effervescence visuelle intense et visible. Alcoolisé mais léger. Une bière d’une grande finesse.
