On draft at the Gingerman in Austin.
A: served in a Chimay chalice; not much head but a protective swirly layer of white froth did sit atop the brew for most of the drink. Golden in color with hints of red too -- reminds me of a white zinfandel...
S: yeasty & floral, lots of maltiness too. Citrus sweetness also present. Hops in the background smell nicely inviting.
T: earthy yeast and malts up front, citrus not far behind. A bunch of complexity in this brew. Finishes sweet, but strangely still dry like a good champagne. Boozy warmth hits your stomach at the end. Really good.
M: medium-bodied with heavy carbonation, which is typically offsetting to me but really seems to work well with this brew. Dare I say it rivals the best tripels I've tasted in this category?!
D: pretty easy to enjoy at any point in the night. Or the day, for that matter! I really should drink this more often.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
