Had this beer on tap while in Bruges, Belgium. I've also had this beer many times back in the states from the bottle and surprisingly does not lose much in the bottle.
Pours a hazy golden colour with a large, very foamy head which is very common with Belgian beers. Belgian beers in general produce extremely large heads that are scraped with a knife. The smell is floral, very sweet, and fruity, due to the Belgian yeast strains that are used. The taste is very fruity, sweet, and you can definitely taste the alcohol content. It is also very carbonated, like most Belgian beers.
Would I buy it again? Absolutely.

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.
