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.

Navers (154) - 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.

nybol (2200) - DENMARK - JUL 14, 2017
Spændende øl med både byg, hvede og havre. Kompleks kydret smag med lang og tydelig eftersmag af sød moden frugt samt noget vanilie smag. Den er er en anelse sødere end andre kendte tripler.

About as perfect a Tripel as you’ll find. It strikes the balance between sweet malty notes and booziness perfectly with the classic fruit funkiness from the yeast that you would expect out of a Belgian. I personally prefer this beer to Delirium Tremens and will certainly be looking for it when I get back to the states.

Maits (476) - ESTONIA - JUL 11, 2017
Slightly cloudy yellow beer with thick small white head. Aroma is nice and complex fruity, caramel, yeast, honey. Taste is little sour and sweet, little alochol feel. Finish pleasent spicy and herbs. Full body. Good beer with full of flavours.

3.7
tlyx (101) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 10, 2017
Lätt blommig arom med jäst- och metalltoner. Stora kolsyrebubblor i gul klar vätska. Banan, citrus, jäst och lite karamell. Välgjord tripel.
