Gouden Carolus Tripel, 22 oz bomber: Good one! Hazy golden body topped with a decent head that really lasts a long time and laces well. Not much in the aroma department, but this is made up for in flavor. Fizzy and light, this tripel has lots of apricot notes, and reminds you of good champagne. Highly recommended tripel.

poured into a chalice from bottle. Pours a hazy gold color with a nice and frothy head.

Very good balance with nice depth and aromas of creams, lemons, pears, and white florals

full bodied with a real smooth feel and flavors of lemons, pears, and creams

A quality tripel. Balanced with real good flavors and aromas. A bit more depth would've been nice, but this was a real good drink

*Review taken from notes*

A: Hazy yellow-gold. Nice amount of bubbles. Dirty white head.

S: Sweet fruity champagne aroma. Citrus notes. Very fragrant. Smells fresh.

T: Crisp subtle sweet flavors. I'm getting all types of fruit flavors. Grapes. Passion Fruit. Booze is very well managed. A refreshing finish.

M: Light body.

O: An American craft brewer would call this an Imperial Blond Ale. Taste like an import -- no mistaking that. Good beer that I would drink again. Not as heavy as a Merry Monks, but more refreshing, IMO. I think this is an "A" beer.

A: A hazy, very light orange pour with a big fluffy white head atop it. Retention is quite good with a smattering of lacing.

S: Lots of belgian yeast with some lemon and pears.

T: Yeasty with lots of cloves. Lemon peel, apple and pear. Bready sourdough malt. A touch of grass and some pepper.

M: Medium bodied and very smooth

O: A well balanced and drinkable tripel. Not as yeasty as some but it is still there of course.

Pours murky gold with some light brown, a bit dark. A huge almost white fluffy foam forms then sticks to the glass and stays 'till I finish.

Smell is rich bread, grassy yeast, spice, and some apple fruitiness.

Taste is toffee embedded in cookies, Belgian yeast, with a lemon spice ending. Aftertaste of the tangy yeast is there as well.

This beer coats my tongue with a creamy smooth texture of a well made beer. A light yeasty tang brings it back to earth.

A stellar example of Belgian. A little dark for most of the Tripels I have tried so far, but who cares? Fruits, spice, yeast, all where they should be. Nicely done.
