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.

Bottle. Pours orange-blonde with sticky white head. Aroma is of sweet fruits and yeast. Taste is amazing lots of flavor here... banana, clove, sweet fruits. Very smooth drinking brew and the alcohol is masked very well. This is one of my favorite Belgians

Kolor złoty, delikatnie mętny. Piana biała, drobnoziarnista, wysoka i trwała, pozostawia sporo zdobien. Aromat owocowy, z lekką nutą bananową, i akcentami wiejskimi. Smak: podobnie jak w aromacie, wyraźna owocowość z nutą banana, wanilia i akcenty wiejskie. Alkohol idealnie ukryty. Nasycenie wysokie, tutaj pasuje.

DraftDodger (1168) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 21, 2016
Copenhagen 21/11 2016. 75 cl bottle from Meny. Some rural scene with momen farming printed directly on the bottle (Wheat I presume). Pours slightly hazy pale yellow with unstable white head. Settles as 0,5 cm thick layer of foam. Aroma of Belgian yeast, sweet banana and citric fruit with a slightly metallic touch. Fairly strong carbonation and slightly thick palate. Flavor has a sweet lemonade touch followed by fruity sourness and bitterness. Aftertaste is a little sweet with sour overtones. Immensly nice tripel.

Jasnozłote z bardzo obfitą pianą, redukuje się do obrączki, lekki lacing. W aromacie zboża, imbir, kolendra, goździki, trochę bananw, lekka cytrusowość. Dość słodkie, przyprawowe, po ogrzaniu alkohol. Wysycenie wysokie, mimo to całkiem gładkie, nie szczypie aż tak bardzo.

Hazy golden appearance with lots of foam. Tastes of wheat and candisugar. Medium-heavy body, aggressive carbonation and a finish of sweet wheat. Quite triply, and little taste of alcohol

Simply put: Wheat beer done right!!! Golden amber color with thick foam head. Taste is very much balanced, medium sweet, light spiciness, hint of banana, barley. Very refreshing and drinkable!

1/2 at six degrees north Edinburgh. Pours gold with dense off white head. Aroma of yeast, some herbs and hay, banana. Nice dense mouthfeel. Bread, some banana, balanced by some citrus and bitterness. Nice.
