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.

Bottle. Pours a golden amber with large white head. Malts and spicy aroma with strong taste of alcohol. Medium bodied, I found this one a little too sweet.

Copper in color with a large head that quickly disappears. Strong smell of alcohol and sweet malt. Three different grains give it some character. Strong is taste with a warm alcoholic burn.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2008
bottle (750ml) from the beginning of 2007..... pours a semi-hazy and sprite golden brown with an overflowing fluffy white head..... light citrus, bready esthers, and a general sweet malt profile make up the nose..... flavors lended to an overwhelming amount of sweet candied sugar that was too much for its own good. a lively mouthfeel provided little escape to cloying sweetness.... i cant say that im a big fan of this beer.

UPDATED: JUN 20, 2008 Cloudy golden goodness, with a wispy white head. Lemon, straw, and watermelon bouquet. Soft, velvet texture. Taste, subtle sweetness, sort of like a push up (frozen thing you eat), but with some hops on it. Great brew! Want more.

Beautiful in the glass, pale crystal clear, beautiful fast disappearing head. Wonderful nose, very floral, some fruit and munich? malt, slightly doughey. Flavor is wonderfully complex yet straight forward. Floral notes from nose carry over into flavor. Also fruity, light citrus, unique maltiness. Wonderful moughfeel, very lively. Overall a joy to drink. A real treat Ill have again.

Bottled. Pours a nice little golden color with a medium head. Nice foam and some long lasting bubbles inside. Aroma is sweet citrusish. Taste is carbonated with nice little hops bite, easy drinking for a Trip.
