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.

Davros IX (604) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2018
Bottle at home from Waitrose. A really strong yeasty nose and a sharp carbonation that does nothing for me. This was yeast, yeast, yeast with some hops left cowering in the corner. Overall the carbonation was off-putting and I didn't enjoy the beer.

Apariencia de color dorado ligeramente turbia. Espuma muy cremosa, blanca y abundante, muy buena retención. Carbonatacion a tope, lo que la hace chispeante y agradable en boca. Aroma super frutal, con toques florales. Sabor increíble, ligeramente dulce y frutal (uvas, plátano, naranja..) con un final amargo y floral del lupulo. Textura cremosa con presencia de los tres cereales, perfectamente integrados. Cerveza perfecta, obligado probarla.

Jusqu’à présent ma triple fermentation de référence, je ne compte pas le nombre de litres dégustés, j’ai hâte de trouver une bière équivalente, je dirais la trappe triple mais il faudrait que je regoûte pour en être certain. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Appearance: Pours hazy yellow with a rich frothy fizzy white head, with lacing. 5/5 Aroma: Citrus, vanilla, banana, malts and hops, with slightly hints of caramel. 9/10 Taste: Malt, caramel, citrus, raisin, plum, spice and yeast, with a hint of hop. Starting off sweetly, turning into moderate bitter with a slight hint of sourness, rounded. Dry and fruity finish with a little alcohol. Well balanced while quite complex. 9/10 Mouthfeel: Smooth, medium bodied, medium carbonated. 4/5 Overall 16/20

rafax (487) - POLAND - DEC 27, 2017
Bottle (batch 16.05.2019). Light yellow, crystal clear with big, frothy, not very solid white head and some lacing. Sweet malty, dried fruits and a bit yeasty aromas. Medium body, sweet, very sweet, start, with smooth mouthfeel and a bit tart, spicy finish. Well balanced but quite high carbonation. Good but very calm vs. other Belgian tripels.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2018 Buona birra, mi aspettavo di più. Carbonazione eccessiva. Voto personale 6.5/10

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2017 Un grand classique toujours largement au niveau. Un peu sucrée, un peu de banane, de miel et de citron. A boire frais comme indiqué sur la bouteille.

Zupelnie przejrzysty, w pilznerowej "złotej barwie", z duzym wysyceniem, pijalny, łagodny w swej bananowo-estrowej belgijskości, calkiem przyjazny tripelek.

Manslow (2000) - Warsaw, POLAND - DEC 22, 2017
Butelka 330ml. pite w domu. Kolor złoty, jasny, klarowny, piana po szybkim syczeniu znika całkowicie. Aromat bananowy ostry a w smaku orzeźwiające jak szampan, znowu banany i owoce. Alkohol ukryty, na podniebieniu przyjemny posmak owocowy, to wszystko, zawiodłem się.

UPDATED: DEC 21, 2017 Beste supermarkt tripel bier. Is eigenijk altijd goed. Volle Smaak, zoet, hop, banaanfruit. Met dit biertje maak je van de dag een feestje
