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.

nephirem (436) - CROATIA - APR 23, 2017
Bottle, 0.75l. Hazy golden pour with two finger creamy white head. Very good retention, thick lacing. Absolutely beautiful and rich nose. Nice hop presence, lemon, lime, grassy. Delicious. Medium body, smooth and light on the tongue. Lively carbonation, really brings out the citrus aroma into the spotlight. Balanced tartness and bitterness. Aroma of malts, yeast and wheat. Full and rich. Herbal, strong coriander presence. Lemons and lime.. Slightly peppery. Malty sweetness coming through a bit during the finish. Very subtle alcohol presence, well hidden and nicely subdued. Dry mouthfeel. Lasting citrus flavored finish. Overall, this one was incredibly tasty. Absolutely delicious tripel.

Rei00 (110) - CHILE - APR 20, 2017
Una Abbey Tripel de color ámbar, sin filtrar con alta espuma y media carbonatacion. Su aroma es a frutos de verano (durazno y Damasco) con notas a cilantro, membrillo y naranja resaltando el plátano maduro. Su sabor conserva las notas frutales en especial el plátano maduro en un equilibrio suave con los sabores de una witbier (trigo, cilantro y naranja), pero manteniendo un leve amargor que se mezcla con el final metálico del plátano maduro. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bue 18 mois avant DLC. Blonde a trs gros col de mousse et trs bonne tenue. Arme fruits, notamment banane et vanille. En bouche, douce, on remarque le bl bien prsent. Assez ronde, mais normal du haut de ses 8,4%. Fruits impressionnant et toujours la vanille/banane. Jadore !!! Toujours ma meilleure bire gale a IPA Hardcore dans un tout autre style.

Aromat słodowo goździkowy. W smaku bardzo słodko, ale wyraźniejsze przyprawy. Kolor jasnożłty z obfitą trwałą pianą. Wysycenie wysokie. Mocno zamulajace.

330ml Bottle bought from Beer Cartel in Artarmon. The favourite beer of a friend in France who introduced me to it. Surprisingly pale and cloudy, bubbly, lasting head. Tart and citrusy and herbal on the nose. Very nice and distinctive among tripels.
