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.

Aroma; fruit, coriander, yeast, citrus, berries, floral perfume. Look; tall pearl foam, hazy pale grey-yellow body. Taste; orange, coriander, cinnamon, yeast, dough, sweet citric bread - leading to a floury to dry yeasty finish. Feel; alright body. Overall; yeast-citric-corianderish.

Id never had this beer before but Id heard everyone rave about it, for many years. Well I wasnt disappointed. it reminds me very much of Duvel Tripel Hop which Ive had quite a few times. I am NOT especially a fan of strong beers like this, but this is lovely. Aroma - I smell caramel and vanilla and a soft something I cant describe. Appearance - like a weissbeer - a bit hazy and pale, and watch out when you pour, it froths up into the tiniest softest bubbles. Taste - Sweet. It lingers on the tongue just enough, then fades fast. Palate - Creamy with a bit of a tingle. Overall - Without doubt one of the tastiest, if not the tastiest beer Ive ever had.

swesson (388) - Highlands Ranch, Colorado, USA - NOV 2, 2016
On tap at Rattle n Hum in NYC. Pours a pilsnery yellow gold and makes a thin white head. A bit of lacing follows down the glass. Aroma is pretty weak of malted grains and pear. Tastes of malt, banana, and a light hop finish. Fairly refined taste of a Belgian brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Kittenbieer (132) - LYON, FRANCE - OCT 31, 2016
Belle robe dore trs claire avec un dme impressionnant de mousse blanche crmeuse et persistante(comme la Duvel!)laissant de fines dentelles avec une carbonatation intense.Le nez nous amne rapidement sur des notes fruites et florales(fleur doranger..)avec des pointes sucres et alcoolises.Tous ces armes se retrouvent en bouche ajoutes au houblon, la levure et aux saveurs maltes.Une bonne triple un peu trop sucre en finale avec une amertume inexistante.14,5/20.

appiantiqua (132) - Lyon, FRANCE - OCT 31, 2016
Dguste dans un verre Duvel. Temprature de dbut 9 10. Trs belle robe dore et transparente surmonte dune immense mousse grosses bulles blanche et persistante; Carbonatation intense. Nez agrable : citronn, pic et levur avec une touche de thym et de sucre candi. Got trs pic avec des notes de malt, de crales et de poivre. Deuxime bouche intressante par son caractre fruit mais malheureusement un peu trop furtif puis retour de la levure. Finale de longueur moyenne un peu trop sur la douceur. Une bonne triple belge de facture classique. 14,5/20
