4.5/5  rDev +5.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Came in a 33cl bottle with best before date of 10/06/2006
Pours an attractive light coppery yellow color with a nice light white head.
Strong aroma of fruits, spices, yeasts and light earthy tones. There is alot going on with this beer quite complex like most Belgian tripels.
The alcohol content is very well masked which makes this beer very drinkable so know your limit because it could catch up to you if your not careful. Overall quite satisfying and ranked right up there as one of the great tripels that I would recommend to all!

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.
