Tried this Belgian as one of 4 recommendations from the local brewmeister.

Staying more toward a subjective analysis, found the beer's complex and spicy taste to be balanced and attractive leaving a desire to have more but for the high(er) ABV. Lingering aftertaste and great mouthfeel. Great cloves and full-mouthed flavor.

Will go back for more after getting through Brooklyn's Local 1 & 2.

I'm a person who is obsess with IPA's-DIPA-American Pale Ale's. But if I had to choose another style beer it would be the Tripel. And the Tripel Karmeliet set the bar for this style. This beer should be rated higher. Perfect Tripel Belgian Style with a wheat taste. You gotta love this beer.

330 mL bottle, marked "Best before 16/07/05." Purchased at the World of Beer, Clearwater, FL.

Hazy, golden in color with no head but a ring of bubbles around the periphery and firm carbonation, the Tripel K has a yeasty, round aroma with just the slightest twinge of alcohol.

The taste is very smooth, light and airy in the mouth but deep in character. Dangerously drinkable and well-rounded, this is easily the best tripel I've had in recent memory, and quite possibly ever. Simply excellent.

Poured from an 11.2oz. bottle into a chalice. Beautiful presence; hazy golden tone with vigorous carbonation and a densely packed creamy white head that lasted throughout and deposited clumpy lace on the glass walls.
Smell: very complex; well spiced yet sporting a wheaty maltiness overlaid with the aromas of tropical fruits and lemon zest. Real peppery spice in the nose.
Taste: bit of white bread maltiness up front with a wispy yeast note. Good blend of fruity sweetness like from apple, papaya and mango to counter the bold spiciness highlighted by the flavors of lemon zest and white pepper. Good zippy hops pop in the finish with a surge of alcohol for good measure.
Feel: medium/full bodied, velvety texture.
Drinkability: damn near off the scale. This is a tripel's tripel, a masterful blending of characters that make it dangerously quaffable. One of the finest examples of the style.

Revisted this beer recently after not having it for a while. Apparently this beer is made from a centuries old recipe.. 1679 specifically.. and I heard it had originally been made by Nuns although I could find no evidence to support that claim. (but that would be cool).

A: poured into the glass a hazy golden color with a 1.5-2 finger frothy cream coloured head. (4.0)

S: On the nose.. notes of citrus.. orange peel, clove, baking spice.. very pleasant. (4.0)

T: Wow! Malty, creamy richness again with the citrus fruit, baking spice.. caramel would not be crazy to suggest. Finishes with a slight bitterness that is not unpleasant.

M: very soft small bubbles in the carbonation.. this is not a big filling style belgian. Medium bodied at most...

O: This is a great Belgian beer for those of us who prefer a subtle, soft flavor. Go for the 750ml though.. way more economical.

Poured into my Tripel Karmeliet tulip (thanks Dan).

A: Pours a fuzzy, golden straw color with tons of thick, tiny-bubbled foam that fades quickly leaving thick beads of lacing all over the glass.

S: Smells of spicy, floral hops, honey, citrus, and lightly toasted grains. Also has some herbal, flowery aromas. Quite nice.

T: Beautiful cascades of fruity goodness, hop bite and spices. There is an undertone of lemon zest going on throughout the whole experience. Fantastic.

M: An up-front exuberant bitterness fades to a palate-relieving carbonation and slightly dry tongue coating. Probably the only aspect to this beer that really needs some improvement.

D: Other than that up-front kick in the head, I could drink it forever and a day.

Poured into my Tripel Karmeliet glass a golden yellow, with nice carbonation. Head is white and pillowy three fingers that sticks around a long time. Smell is fantastic. Spice, apple, pear, malt and a hint of alcohol prevail. The spice definitely has the edge here, w/ the fruit in the background. A magnificent smelling beer. I gotta say- I've had this beer many times, and for a Tripel, it doesn't get much better than this on taste. Everything seems to be in perfect harmony- it seems impossible to imagine anything different here. Mouthfeel is amazing. It's creamy, like a piece of sugary angel food cake w/ fluffy icing. The ABV is the only thing keeping me from drinking a bunch of these. They go down REALLY easy, although I always try to sip and enjoy these. Truly a world class beer.

75cl green bottle with no dates.

I've got to say I was worried when I first popped the cork. I got a whiff of skunk, and I felt a dread come over me. It passed quickly; whew!

Poured hazed dark straw/light copper, with a fastly dwindling white head.

Smell is a little subtle until the beer warms a bit. Citrus and assorted fruits. Fresh baked pastry. Bubble gum.

I fell for this beer as soon as it parted my lips. So dammed complex. Creamy and malty at the top, fruity and carbonated in the middle, spicy and herbal in the back. Wheat comes out in the finish, balanced with barley malts, a slightly chalky mouthfeel, and a lemony twist.

Talk about a surprise. So much going on with this beer. I think this one could have a shot at the tripel championship versus St. Bernardus.

This is a review of a 750ml corked and caged green bottle of Tripel Karmeliet. It opened with a nice pop, always a good start. It pours a light orange color with a huge white head into my Tripel Karmeliet glass (a very cool glass at that). It has a citrusy/lemon dominated aroma, with a little bit of the alcohol noticeable. The flavor is light, even delicate. No off flavors at all. Citrus is noticeable in the flavor, the hops and malt are hiding in the background. This is a magnificently well balanced beer. Nothing about the flavor hits you over the head (unlike most American big beers), but it's darn good. The alcohol is barely noticeable, other than some warming. Very drinkable, highly recommended.

I have been waiting so long to try this beer. I bought a 4 pack about a month ago, and have been waiting for the right moment...which is now.

It pours from the 11.2 oz. bottle a perfectly clear, honey colored amber gold. A 3 finger head of large frothy bubbles volcanoes upwards, almost tumbling over the edge of my St. Bernardus goblet. The head is unfortunately short lived, and leaves a few scattered spots of lace. Medium sized bubbles continue to cascade from the bottom of the glass.

The aroma is a succulant blend of honey drenched apricots, juicey mango and pinapple, yellow raisins, honeydew melon, cinnamon, and sweet yeasty spice. Really huge nose on this one, everything seems amplified.

Whoa, this is incredible! It starts with a huge mouthfull of tropical fruit flavors found in the nose. There is a definate emphasis on apricot, mango, and pinapple. It has a huge malt and candi sugar sweetness which is balanced by grassy and herbal hops and yeasty spice. Very complex and well built. The finish is a bit warming and has a fruity, almost chardonay like dryness accented by soft tones of oak and vanilla.

The mouthfeel is lush and full with a medium body. Large playful carbonation quickly settles down and allows the flavors to penetrate your tastebuds. Really a superb tripel, well worth the wait. Probably the best tripel I've had yet.

Kwak was a great beer so I figured why not try Brouwerij Bosteels's Triple Karmeliet. This beer is rich, deep, and long. This is one BIG beer.

I poured 25cl (at a time) of my 750 mL Triple Karmeliet into a La Chouffe tulip glass (at around 58 degrees Fahrenheit). I think I did this to savor each sip. Think of it as a preemptive strike against a worthy adversary. It poured a hazy, yet bright golden color. As the light shown in it made my glass glow. Is this the one that they said would come?

The aroma is malty deep and fruity. I can tell this is going to be great.

Upon first sip I confirm my expectations - which is rare - and I get a rush of floral vinous fruit and calms to a juicy malt cream and then ends with a fruity twang. WOW what a long tasting beer this is. I am deeply impressed. The mouthfeel is full. I can tell that eventhough this beer is 8%ABV Bosteels could have went 10%ABV easily as there is enough fermentable sugar still in this one to drop the insulin levels of the healthiest of people. Please understand me, I am not complaining. I know the reason this beer is so long is the fact that it is not fully attenuated. Enjoy this one with some Spainish Machengo Cheese and Jamon or with a nice French swiss and artisian bread. Or just drink it by itself - it can handle it!

Enjoy and Savor this one!

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 11.2oz bottle into a chalice. The back label has a best before date of 03JJ and it was sampled on 6-23-09.

Appearance: The body has a golden color with a cloudy haze. Inside there are little bits of tasty yeast floaters. The head on top is tall, long lasting and bright whit in color. As I drink it leaves some spotty lacing on the glass.

Smell: Right from the pop of the cap the aroma creeps out of the bottle. It has a bright nose with hints of lemon zest, fruity and funky Belgian yeast.

Taste/Mouth: The flavor has sweetness up front with complex grainy malt flavor and a hint of clover honey. The middle sees fruity and funky yeast and mellow warming alcohol taking over and drying out the overall character. It then finishes bone dry with only a hint of herbal hops. The palate is medium bodied with good carbonation.

Notes: This is an outstanding example of the style and a very satisfying beer.

I won't be the first to say that this is absolutely the top. A very tasty beer, with lots of esters. Almost perfect.

L: golden, pilsener look, quite thin foam, nicely sticking on the glass;
S: lovely, banana, very soft hops, flowergarden;
T: round, but not too sweet, full of hops, but whitout the bitterishness;
M: a little too much carbonation perhaps, but what am I nagging...An impressive, complete creation;
O: you can wake me up at night for this one!!

A: hazy gold with a fat cap of lacey foam - it's one of those beers that foam up and overflow if you don't measure your pour

S: light fruits and soft floral notes

T: clean malt grains give it a strong simple elegrance; nearby: graceful pale fruits and banana gracefully interwoven with honey and floral/herbal accents

M: clean, fresh, soft, creamy, fuzzy

O: wonderful pay-off on an impulse buy - one of the best tasting and feeling tripels - right up there with Westmalle's tripel as two of the finest tripels in the world - I'm going to say that the Karmeliet has a more champagne-like character - perhaps the use of three grains (oat, wheat, and barley) creates the difference.

This one's been revisited a few times since my initial review, and always tastes top-tier.

3 grains beer, stated on the bottle.

A: Golden ale, very nice head, 2 fingers. it's massive on the bubbles (allthough a sample months later disappoints in this area), especially after pouring a few pieces of the bottled yeast in.

S: The first thing i notice is grains and pepper, maybe also nutmeg. Next to the malt, both white bread and oats are very present, completed by scent of flowers, hops and pine, and a lot of fruit like grapefruits.

T: It's rather sweet, malty, nice hops. Mostly it's very peppery/spicy, slight hints of fruits. The yeast has a slight funny taste.
It gives the beer a good balance.

This beer surprised me positively. It's quite different from other belgian tripels I've had so far, but very high class.

Even when poured carefully, this 750 mL green bottle discharges with a huge, creamy white foam. Beer color is a very pale yellow, maybe the palest tripel I have encountered. Retention is very good and lacing is ok. Has a best by stamp of 08/04/12 on the neck label that is easy to miss.

Hint of skunk aroma, damn these green bottles, with lots of candy-sweet light grain. Yeast is doing great things in the nose and provides lots of fruity esters. Alcohol is soft for a tripel and it has a notable hop presence. Once the skunk funk dissipates, it is an awesome smelling tripel.

Wow, that is very tasty. I cant believe it has taken me so long to finally get to this beer. Freshness and the green bottle have scared me away multiple times. Yeast is really active in the flavor and throws off alot of cloves and melon flavors. Alcohol is there, but it seems more dialed down than in most tripels. Mouthfeel is very soft and creamy and the grain presence maintains its lightness. Finish is dry and has a bitter hop and alcohol kick. Highly carbonated, a bit too much for me. This is probably up there in my top 5 favorite tripels. Nice beer.

Enjoyed at Duckworth's in Charlotte. Poured from the bottle into a pilsner glass. Tasted on 9/27/10. Reviewed from notes obviously.

A - clear golden color with streaming bubbles; nice white head died down to uneven white cap
S - golden aromas of grain and bread/toast
T - refreshing; grain bill shows through with light flavors of bread and just a hint of hops
M - pretty standard medium carbonation; thin, crisp body overall
D - delicious in my book; the lightly toasted bread and grain is a treat

This is a fantastic tripel. It tastes different from any other tripel while still being a good representation of the style. It is the best deviation from the standard laid out by St. Bernardus and Westmalle, IMHO.

Poured from a 11.2oz. bottle into my Tripel Karmeliet tulip glass.

Appearance - A translucent honey blonde color with a two finger head that left lots of lacing on the side of the glass. Bubbles never stop rising from the bottom of the glass.

Smell - Fantastic smell. Malty, grainy, fruity, citrusy, yeasty, and hoppy.

Taste - This is where this beer excells. It tastes way different from any other tripel I have sampled. Sweet, but not overly so...The three grains that the beer is brewed with have a major positive impact on the flavor. This is a seriously complex brew.

Mouthfeel - Creamy, effervescent, and warming from the alcohol.

Drinkability - Great. Give me a couple more. I could drink tripels all day long.

If I could drink this all day, I would be a lucky guy. This is a mainstay of my beer rotation. Perfect for drinking outside on a spring day. If you love tripels and haven't tried it yet, stop whatever you are doing right now to go find some.

This is a very good beer. I would say the style should be Flanders Red but the name might get non-sour beer lovers to give it a try. It pours golden and clear. The head is a silky white. It looks like a tripel but the taste of tart citrus is unmistakable. It is not too sour/tart but just enough to add character. This is a must find and ust drink.

simply a wonderful beer. had on tap about a year ago and hurriedly reviewed. let's see how the bottle stands up. big 25.4 oz corked and caged silk screened greenie, looks like a champagne bottle, and a serious thanks to my dear friend Pap for the unoccasioned gift.

A- poured into a duvel tulip a clear bright golden with a nice pillowy barely off white head that seems to have a tint of yellow to it. foam gracefully settles in the form of big pockets and deposits some spotty lace from the head settling, and thick rings and chunky blobs from sips.

S- yeasty and spicy with a pale grainy sweetness. very floral as well. strong notes of vanilla and lime zest, backed up by lilies, banana, coriander, clove, honey and pound cake. some lemony and orange aromas underlie the sweetness with a touch of herbal hop. also something indefinable akin to dish soap in a good way, which may just be the combination of citrus and flowers.

T- floral, fruity, sweetly dry, with a bit of mineral taste and no apparent bitterness although some nice hop flavor is detectable. fruit flavors span the board from apple pear and white grape skin to lemon lime candy to the tropical flavors of a mango banana smoothie. vanilla and honey sweetness back the fruity flavors nicely. plenty sweet but not cloying. a bit of wheat flavor is definitely noticeable as well as a distinct grainy flavor that must be attributed to the oats. it really brings to mind popping open a can of quaker rolled oats. it's soft, fresh, earthy, and a delightful facet on this well polished gem. finishes with a lingering apple-grape-lime skin flavor.

MF- here's where our 3 grains come into play for me. body, rock solid. so lush and creamy thanks to wheat proteins and a ridiculous softness from the fats present in oats. i've had plenty a good tripel, but none with this caliber of hefty bod. this 3 grain thing may be unconventional but it sells the ticket here. outstanding. forceful, aggressive, zesty carbonation is obvious once the cork is popped. prickly and champagne-like it stings the tongue like wu-tang darts sting a nonbeliever's heart. half way through the glass the bubbles begin to subside and become much more gentle and tamed. this is neither good nor bad as it only adds another dimension to the transitioning character of this baby. powerful burps in the first half! a distinct sweetened dryness in the finish, with a powdery wheat and oat feel. for what it is, perfection.

D- drinkability on high. perhaps a little too much so. and since i hate to recork this awesome brew, i've been forced to commit to it and a solid buzz shall follow. alcohol is deceptive and only shows itself as a soft flowery pineappleish haze that gets lost in the lilies. the pleasant flavor and insane body only beckon another filled glass in celebratory fashion, for today's arrival of the lil black puppy who at the moment, lies sleeping soundly at my feet. here's to poopin outside, cheers.

Chilled sample in a goblet from the Elysian.
The beer pours a hazy gold color with bright white, spongey or marshmallowy head.
Aroma is very floral and sweet, with green apple, cloves and some general sugary sweet scents. I also get a bit of yeasty bread on the nose.
First sip reveals a slight syrupy texture and very light almost non-existent carbonation.
Flavor is a mouthful! Mostly sweet again with apple, nutmeg some biscuity hints and a touch of clove I think. The finish reveals a white grape presence. Definately a lot going on there. Quite a tasty brew. I get a little alcohol warming on the end as well. Very nice!

Aroma is rich and fruity. Chamomile, flowers, orange marmalade, kumquats. I could go on. Incredibly aromatic. Really leaps from the glass. So much going on. Perfumey and floral hops, with honey and cracker malt rounding things out. Sweet smelling. Some banana and white pepper as well.

Pours a tad hazy dark gold/light orange. Big frothy head, lots of carbonation. Recedes a bit though bubbles continue to feed from the bottom. Not much lacing.

Flavor is a rush of chamomile, bubblegum, and citrus fruits. Clove and banana. Soft cracker malt with honey and some wheat character on the finish. Juicy fruit and spices. Very complex. Moderate hop bitterness, warming alcohol.

Very high carbonation allowing the flavors to really explode on the palate. Medium body. Lots of fruit upfront but finishes mostly dry.

A lot going on in this beer. So much yeast character without being cloying.

Been along time between!

Poured into a Westy chalice a very nice slightly cloudy golden pale yellow color, very nice carbonation, with a very nice two-finger creamy white head, which leaves a very very nice thick film of sticky lacing the diameter of the glass. The nose is malty, yeasty, with some nice banana/coriander, slight peppery note. The taste is freakn' awesome, malty, yeasty, fruity, nice little pepper note. Medium body, ABV is hidden very well. Overall, one of the best, if not the best, tripel for me. Very nice to have it available to me.

Pours a nice clear amber/orangy color, nice carbonation, nice creamy off-white head, nice lacing throughout the drink. The nose is of malts, slight hops, yeast, spices, and pears/apple, grapes. The taste is slightly tangy/malty, nice not overly spicy. Medium body. Very drinkable, a very tasty tripel, one of the best I've had to date.

I'm usually more partial to the "Dubbel" style Belgium offerings but this one is quite satisfying and smooth. Just enjoyed a couple of bottles over the holidays and found it very drinkable.

Apperance: Golden straw color, slightly hazy, and when pouring the big creamy head builds quickly. A frothy wonder indeed!
Smell: Very nice, light, apples and clove that tickle your nose. A full bodied aroma.
Taste: Excellent! Smooth, crisp and tangy. Starts sweet, but has a nice finish, almost dry. Very unusual and enjoyable for a "tripel". Alcohol though present on the palate doesn't overwhelm the experience.
Mouthfeel: Smooth and silky. Welldone.
Drinkability: Very, very good! Some Belgium brews find me doing one and done. I had 3 of these beauties in one sitting on Christmas Eve and all I could say is "It's a Wonderful Life"! !

I finally had a chance to try this brew at Anam Cara, and was extremely pleased. From what I could tell in the glow of the fireplace it had a nice golden color, and a surprisingly nice head (not too carbonated, just right.) Strong fruity flavor, easily drinkable, super smooth, peach and caramel aroma. I am partial to sweet\strong beers (Tripels and Barleywines) so if you are not you might find this beer a little too sweet, however if you are a fan of Belgian Tripels I'm certain you will enjoy this beer.
