Tripel Karmeliet couldn't possibly look any better. You can just tell its going to be a great beer when pouring. It produces a head thick enough to cut with a knife, with loads of carbonation bubbling up through a mostly clear golden straw coloured body.
The smell has lots to offer. Light citrus, fresh fruit, yeast, and bready malts all come together very well in this tripel. No trace of alcohol at all, which surely means I won't taste it either...
My god is this ever good. Sweet malts start off followed by a strong, unexpected alcohol blast in the middle. It ends with a great balance to the beginning - wonderful hop flavour that will satisfy your cravings but won't scare off those who don't like bitter beers.
Tripel Karmeliet is very dry, very smooth, and very carbonated. Swishing around the mouth really brings out the alcohol, but its just the right amount. I could drink this beer over and over again. I really wasn't expecting anything like this.

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.
