Served in a Karmeliet tulip glass.
A - A very pretty beer. Pours up a medium frothy head with little lacing. A gorgeous honey gold color. It literally looks like honey through the glass.
S - Slight wheat and oats. Hops make a very subtle presence. Not a potent odor, but quite pleasant.
T - Interesting. A slight honey taste with a malty finish. A bit of flowery character. A mild bitter aftertaste. It is good, not great though. Alcohol is detectable, but not powerful.
M - At first I thought it was too highly carbonated and frothed up in my mouth intensely, acting astringently on my tongue. But after a few minutes, it died down a lot and revealed a smooth thin drink that is very refreshing. Still a bit frothy though.
D - I can't put my finger on it. There is something amazing about this beer. I keep wanting it. Looking at what I said, I agree with all with all of it, and it seems complete. Yet somehow there is something left out. This beer is excellent, and the rating doesn't do it justice. I know this beer it good, but it is also not the best I've had, yet I have a feeling that in the future, I would choose it over many beers I've rated higher.

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.
