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.

Couleur or pâle, mousse abondante. Entre biere blanche et blonde. Goût acidulé de citron.

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2018 Bel colore dorato, opalescente. Schiuma bianca e fine, lungamente persistente. Al naso risulta speziata (chiodo di garofano). Sorprendentemente beverina: nonostante l’alto grado alcolico risulta secca e l’amaro nascosto dalle note dolci. Ottima birra.

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2018 Esta cerveza sabe como debería saber una flor. Tú hueles una flor y si te la comieses, es el sabor ideal entre lo que te esperas y lo que es en realidad. Mientras que una flor de verdad en la realidad sabe incoherente con su olor. Imagina que la cerveza es un corcho que sabe a Ikea. ¡Pero el sabor es genial! Pero como a corcho de Ikea. Un excelente corcho de Ikea.

Poncjusz (403) - POLAND - JAN 28, 2018
Kolor złoty intensywny, lekko zamglony, lekko mętny. Piana wysoka średniej struktury ale dość szybko opada do wysp, troche oblepia. W aromacie ładny pieprzowy witbier - pszenica, delikatna słodycz, przyprawy nienachalne z większym udziałem pieprzu i cukru waniliowego mieszają się z estrami, przebija sie banan i slodka gruszka. W smaku jeszcze wieksze odczucie pszenicy i owoców, dochodza jakies susze ale przejscie jest z gryzącą słodkością którą balansuje nieco wytrawność przypraw. Ogolnie dobre i wciaga, ale zbyt uboga konstrukcja smaku i zostaje wrazenie ze to bardziej imperialny witbier niz tripel.

GreenCat (249) - SLOVENIA - JAN 27, 2018
0,75 l bottle. Pours hazy golden yellow with big frothy dissipating white head. Aroma is very malty, bread, pilsner pollen aroma, yeast, fruity banana ester, some citrus and herbal hop notes, spices. Taste is medium sweet, light to medium bitter, some very light sourness. Body is medium, surprisingly light for quite high ABV, texture is creamy, carbonation lively. Finish is quite long, malty, light spicy and herbal with mellow medium bitterness. As it gets warmer more and more pollen aroma comes to front. Quite complex and very drinkable.

Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with enormous white foamy head and very lively carbonation. Aroma is fruity with spices. Light bodied with citrusy and lemon flavors. Touch of wheat. Easy drinking and quite nice.

Suco (130) - Castellon, SPAIN - JAN 23, 2018
De las mejores en su estilo, un birra compleja, rubia dorada que deja una copa perfecta, aromas a platano y vanilla, mismo gustos pero con un toque cítrico y a levadura. La mezcla de distintos cereales le da un cuerpo espectacular y una textura melosa. Si no la has probado corre a buscarla ya!

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2018 Pivo u flaši. Malo blasfemije. Jer ovo je ipak trenutno broj 1 Tripel na Rate Beeru. Dakle da krenem bogohulit. Za mene ovo uopće nije Tripel ! Miris je poseban , ja takav miris piva zovem 'juhica' zato šta se izrazito osjećaju neki blagi povrtni mirisi i kvasna kiselkastosti. Okusom mi najviše dominiraju mrkva, celer, peršin ..ha ha , ma šalim se :)) ..niš od toga , ali nekakvi zelenkasti začini mi se osjete i kvit. Najviše mi smeta kiselkastost koja bi trebala biti manja, ali ono najbitnije ...pa gdje je tu gorčina ?..ništa nije puno veća od Blondova. Uglavnom , to pivo je OK , ima svoju kompleksnost i poseban okus. Vrlo je pitko i osvježavajuće. Ali poslje njega popite Westmalle Tripel pa da vidite šta je Tripelovska gorčina.
