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.

Tretinkova flasa, ciste sklamanie, opakovat sa nebude. Europena. Sladkasta chut.

Dangerous well hidden alcohol that is hidden by a rather overwhelming sweetness. Banana, coriander, cloves and citrus.

Wonderful beer. From the aroma to the initial foam and crisp sweetness on the palate with a lingering finish, this is a fantastic beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Originally rated on 12/24/2008. It poured a slightly hazy golden body, good carbonation, but the head quickly fizzled out and didnt leave any lace to speak of. Aroma of wheat, corriander, spice, and yeast. Mouthfeel was crisp and clean due to the carbonation. Flavor was a mixture of the three grains with orange, spices, and some slightly sweet malts showing up, the alcohol was barley noticeable at the end. It leaves a faint but plesant clean aftertaste, overall its a pretty fine beer thats worth a try

330 mL Bottle - Poured into a tulip: pale to slightly hazy deep gold, head started lively and fizzy then built into frothy white mountain on top of the glass and calmed to a cap-film all the way down, effervescent rising carbonation - nice look. Aroma of fruit, banana, yeast, floral, sweet honey, classic Belgian spice of pepper coriander and clove, and a bit of vanilla. Well balanced taste, some sweet fruitiness, spice, hint of bitterness and alcohol well subdued but still there in the lightness of the body. Light-medium body, lively tingly carbonation, thin dry finish. Overall: Solid tripel, well balanced, quite drinkable, but still leans a bit sweet for me personally.

A rather industrial beer posing as some heritage brew. Very one-dimensional, a bit syropy.

Výtečné pivo s tóny banánu, které v této chuti hrají velkou roli. Dokonalost a vytříbenost, skvělá originalita z tohoto piva činí špičku!
