A: Pours a translucent bright light gold with tons of effervescence and two full fingers of pure white head. The foam takes a bit to settle,leaving a big rocky layer of bubbles all across the beer.
S: The nose is gains, spice, unripe bananas, and mild (but stinging) lemon citrus. It smells good. More like a saison than a triple.
T: It starts out dry and chalky with grains, spice, and mild bubblegum. As it moves towards the middle I get that lemon citrus bite along with clove and coriander. As it moves to the back end, I get light malt and unripe bananas. Not too much alcohol. It's just right.
M: Medium bodied beer. It's dry to start with the beer coating the palate. The flavors mingle well when the beer is there. In the finish it's sticky and cloying. The spices tend to linger long after the beer is gone.
O: This is a solid brew. It doesn't strike me as a super traditional triple, as the flavors remind me more of a saison, but this is a delicious treat on a hot summer day. I like it. I'd drink this again if I was in the mood for it.

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.
