Pours a sharp golden orange with strong effervescence and a beautiful fluffy white head. The lace is fine, smooth, yet sticks to the glass. The aroma is fruity, of bubble gum, hints of spices, fresh and full. The taste is smooth and sweet with a well-balanced dry finish. The MF is smooth and soft with a wonderful transition from sweet to dry.
IMHO: A well balanced triple with no big surprises, and is subtly complex. Karmeliet has a great combination of flavors and smooth transitions.

Bought this from the local Yankee Spirits in South Attleboro. Went home and opened it immediately. The first experience that I had with it was when I popped the cork off of the bottle, and it exploded down the hall from the kitchen. I figured at that point that it was going to be pretty well carbonated.

I poured this masterpiece into a Chimay chalice. The beer poured a bright, golden hue and brought with it a 3 finger, foamy, white, decadent head.

As the head settled down, I stuck my nose deep into the glass and inhaled deeply. The beer smelled malty and of grain. Also were hints of citrus and fruitiness. It had my mouth watering.

At the first sip, I fell in love. I wanted to marry this beer and have it last forever. It was amazing, like the freshest loaf of bread from the oven. Then as the taste shifted, it moved towards a sweeter taste.

The mouthfeel was amazing. It almost numbed me around my gums and tongue, probably from the carbonation. The mouthfeel was probably my favorite part of the beer.

Overall, an amazing beer. I have no doubts that this should be in the Holy Trinity of Tripels. Must try this if you haven't!
