A: Clear golden-yellow with a large white head of good retention. A very ample head.

S: Scents of pear and apple are drowned out by a Heineken-like odor. Overall, this is quite off putting.

T: The beer resonates throughout the mouth, with a finish both crisp and peppery. There is also a hint of cloves laced in.

M: HIghly carbonated and dry...

O: A disappointing experience. Perhaps I just got a bad bottle, but this had an unappealing aroma and tastes that tended toward cheap cider.

Serving type: bottle

Excellent beer to be had at a tapas restaurant. A variety of seafoods was my personal preference. The beer was refreshing and also very full of body which helps the hollow after taste of most seafood. As with most seafood a slight hint of citrus will always entice the pallet. There were other delicacies that went well with the Triple Karmeliet too. A beer to be had with a variety of fine foods. Top notch compliment to the meal.
