This beer is a bit of a relief. It's not a high-ranker. It's not a pre-eminent representative of the community, pushing through the crowd to stand at the forefront of the Tripels. Yet, nonetheless, there it stands: quietly near the front.
This is a sweet beer that is sweet without being awful. It is full-bodied. At a glance and taking in some of its smell -- as much as can be garnered given its thick foam -- it appears to be a bit too bouncy. It looks like it might be a bit too hurried, a bit too improvised -- an erratic concoction. But taking it in, it is solid enough and steady. It will get you where you need to go.
The Karmeliet tripel is easier to drink than, say, a La Chouffe. There is nothing acidic or citrus-like about the Karmeliet tripel. It's a beer that doesn't have profundity. But you'll find yourself reaching for it again and again.
