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.

Yellow haze with a great large foamy top. The smell is actually floral and hops, not sweet but a bit sour and the taste is good aswell, similarly sour bitter again not sweet with a nice palate. Alcohol does not overpower and this is a big beer, but I do not plan to revisit this since the taste seems dispirited and grave.

macca147 (66) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 24, 2017
On tap at Heritage Belfian Beer cafe in Sydney. Pours a hazy golden orange with a white head. Aroma: herbal, banana, vanilla aromas dominate. Mild citrus and sugarcane aromas. Taste: Banana, ripe fruit, sugarcane, wheat flavours complement the malt flavour that hits the palate first. Sweet but well balanced. Simply delicious.

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
