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.

This is a fine Tripel, but there are others I prefer. I find this one a bit more dry and bitter than some of the others. Very drinkable and delicious

bottiglia 33 cl, bel cappello di schiuma bianca fine molto persistente, color giallo oro limpido, al naso è floreale malto lieviti belgi spezie succo di pera, in bocca è delicata malto frutta a pasta gialla pera, carbonatazione forte che pulisce la bocca ad ogni sorso, corpo rotondo, ben bilanciata l'alcool non si sente, dolce e lieve acidula con amaro leggero. Scorre via che è un piacere. Una Tripel eccezionale 14.01.18

UPDATED: JAN 14, 2018 Un must tra le birre belghe! colore giallo dorato, odore di spezie, zagara e miele, sapore pieno, corposo e allo stesso tempo dolce e rinfrescante. un mix di sapori tra malto, miele, spezie, scorza d'arancia e vaniglia. Nasconde benissimo la sua alta gradazione alcolica (8,4%), scende giù che è una meraviglia e ne vorresti subito un'altra...ottima!

The best thing about this beer is it's aroma. It's great all around with a smooth finish, brilliant color, and excellent mouthfeel. It's a 8.5 that drinks like a light beer, slight hops taste, but nothing beats it's floral aroma.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2018 Une de mes triples préférées ! Si ce n’est ma préférée ! Cette mousse onctueuse, cette attaque en bouche fraîche et rafraîchissante avec une légère pointe d’amertume discrète, on sent bien les 3 céréales au fur et à mesure des gorgées! Elle nous rafraîchi en été et nous réconforte en hiver ! Elle peut parfois nous prendre par surprise avec ces 8,4%, mais on se laisse aller à ce doux nectar enivrant. On est pas loin de la perfection !

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2018 Una cerveza con un tono semitostado, espuma consistente y con un agradable sabor. Bastante buena.

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2018 Degustada en botella y de tirador,la gran diferencia es que en botella es mucho mas gasificada que en barril,por lo demas,buena tripel comercial.

Bottle at home from Waitrose. A really strong yeasty nose and a sharp carbonation that does nothing for me. This was yeast, yeast, yeast with some hops left cowering in the corner. Overall the carbonation was off-putting and I didn't enjoy the beer.

Apariencia de color dorado ligeramente turbia. Espuma muy cremosa, blanca y abundante, muy buena retención. Carbonatacion a tope, lo que la hace chispeante y agradable en boca. Aroma super frutal, con toques florales. Sabor increíble, ligeramente dulce y frutal (uvas, plátano, naranja..) con un final amargo y floral del lupulo. Textura cremosa con presencia de los tres cereales, perfectamente integrados. Cerveza perfecta, obligado probarla.

Jusqu’à présent ma triple fermentation de référence, je ne compte pas le nombre de litres dégustés, j’ai hâte de trouver une bière équivalente, je dirais la trappe triple mais il faudrait que je regoûte pour en être certain. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
