I enjoy this beer very much.
I get notes of citrus and spice when I drink this beer in both flavor and smell. It is a highly carbonated beer that I find to be refreshing. This is a beer that can easily be enjoyed quickly or sipped over the course of half an hour.
I actually use a Tripel Karmeliet tulip glass which make it easy to drink and to enjoy the aroma. If you get a chance I would highly suggest it.
At home, I tend to drink this beer slightly colder than cellar temperature, but when I have it in a pub at cellar temperature I find the flavor of this beer stands up very well. There is a sweet spot between too cold and too warm that I've come to recognize and that it usually when I decide to finish the beer.
The only negative comment I might make involves that carbonation I mentioned earlier. This is a beer that can make you full. But at 8.4% that isn't really a bad thing.

One of my favorite Belgian beers of the over 1000 varieties brewed in Belgium. The complexity, carbonation, and overall feel of this beer is truly remarkable. Very few (if any) beers brewed anywhere in the world compare to Tripel Karmeliet. Any beer aficionado must try Tripel Karmeliet at least once in their life to expand the limits of their "beer horizons". This is the Standard for all other Belgian-type ales to strive towards. High alcohol content makes this a beer to savor - not suitable for pounding down on a hot summer day - drink a Tripel Karmeliet slowly and believe your taste buds when they tell you this is as close to a religious experience as any beer has ever come.
