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.

33cl bottle: Light orange colour with a bright white head. The aroma is really interesting, muscat grapes and lemons with a hint of acidity from the high carbonation. Delicate honey-like sweetness on the palate, flavours of alcohol (prunes) and spicy hops. Subtle yeast character, pretty good.

My favourite triple, a permanent guest to my cellar. Nice head, lasts quite some time if well poured ,which I do not always manage :-( ... Nose malty and yeast, some discreet gras / flower. First sip reveals a strong taste where in my opinion malt and yeast a perfetly balanced. Quite often I find the yeast too strong in triples, but here it is just perfect. Second sip hints at some fruit, finish is not too strong which makes it a dangerously drinkable beer ;-)

Mjollnir (404) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - APR 11, 2010
330mL bottle, 8.4% ABV. Pours clear pale gold with a fluffy white head that eventually disappears. Spicy, earthy and slightly fruity aroma. In the flavour a citrus oil-like sharpness is quite strong when cold but balances better when it warms up, and some fruity sweetness and acidity. Oddly enough, it’s much tastier near room temperature than at the recommended 6-9°C. The alcohol presence is well masked throughout. Light-medium bodied, lively carbonation and very creamy with a drying finish.

Hunsell (403) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 19, 2005
Cloudy golden-orange coloured beer. Large head, that remains exceptionally well! Very tempting aroma of citrusfruits, fresh, juicy. A bit sweet in its taste, lightly fruity and spicy. A bit overcarbonated for me, but this is certainly a worldclass tripel.

puredelusion (403) - Lviv, UKRAINE - AUG 11, 2015
Pours yellow color with large creamy white head. Excellent head lacing, fully lasting. Body is cloudy, hazy with tiny particles. Awesome aroma of perfume, coriander, clove. Flavor is light to moderate sweet, light bittter. Aftertaste is long and slightly alcoholic. Body is medium to full, fizzy carbonization.

DonGregorio (400) - POLAND - JUN 25, 2017
Bottle. Hazy pale yellow beer with large creamy, frothy head. Aroma is spice, clove, phenolic, yeasty, with notes of banana. Taste is medium- sweet, light bitter, phenolic, spice, clove, banana, light citrus, some pear, peach. Spicy, peppery finish with notes of fruits and alcohol. Medium to full body, average to lively carbonation. Very good, but not my favourite tripel.

Goblincat (399) - Petersburg, Michigan, USA - DEC 12, 2004
Pours cloudy golden with a thick fluffy white head. Light fruity nose... some apple included. Real bubbly mouthfeel. Sweet taste with a light touch of hops. A bit simple, but not bad at all.

temporrari (397) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 9, 2005
Tap at the Map Room. Large head atop a dark and slightly hazy yellow. Sweet malts, Belgian yeast, light fruits, mild spice, a bit of dryness, just a lot of subtle stuff going on. Tasty.
