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.

A hazy gold with highlights of copper and big frothy white head. Grainy, spicy, and thick for the style. There is more going on in the aroma and flavor that I can easily express. Finishes with a lasting flavor of earty grain, rye?

It has a very nice golden colour, slightly cloudy. The aroma is very fresh, very pleasant. The taste is powerfull and well-balanced. Very long aftertaste.

this tripel really is a good surprise. The taste is so different from the others : a kind of mix of fruits and sweet spicy tastes.

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2012 Together with Westmalle Tripel, a classic, the archetype of how I like my tripel. Great fruity aroma of orange peel, coriander, spicy yeast, bit grainy. Dry taste, slight sweet, fruity, bit spicy. Perfectly balanced. Awesome.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2006 Complex aroma with spices, malts and wheat. Hazy, yellow color, white head, good lace. Sweet, bread and light hops. Very drinkable, very well balanced, looking good.

UPDATED: JUL 6, 2005 Sweet and complex pencil eraser aroma starts a malty, alcoholic, smoky rich blend of flavors. It’s compelling -- I’ll definitely be back.
