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.

750 mLbottle in a snifter. Well deserving of it’s place in the rankings! Have been looking for this one for a while and finally found it in Florida. Excellent aroma, flavor and palate.

Bottle, golden with a very faint haze and a lot of CO2. Lovely spicy lemony nose with hints of bread, banana and perry. Rich and dry-sweet, fruity bready undertones, dry spiciness and touches of lemon and barnyard. Delicious.

Navers (157) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUL 18, 2017
Bottle from Smak Piwa. Beer served in Flute Glass. Pours slightly cloudy amber with big and thick head. Belgian yeasts and glucose dominates the aroma, along with marmalade, yellow and red fruits, mild spiciness and malts. Flavor is rich, deep malty backbone with apricots, cherries, apple, pear and berries notes. A little champagne like.

like an aged red wine, it takes some time for the aroma to evolve after opening the bottle, but then it’s very deep. a little too sweet for me, but totally acceptable.

Une très bonne bière; Son apparence ressemble un peu à une blanche par sa clarté. Un goût un peu amer qui est très bon. Une bière que je recommande car malgré ses 8.4% d’alcool, je ne la trouve pas trop forte. On peut vraiment l’apprécier !

Tap at Craftownia. Peach aroma, a lot of fruits, some yougurth notes. Very pleasant. Taste is rather sweet, a lot of peaches, other fruits. Medium body, smooth. Very good tripel, personal best.
