Gouden Carolus Tripel beer is brewed in the purest tradition of Belgian Tripels!
Pale blond colour with a delicate head.
Aromas of fruity hops and citrus.
Forceful, dry mouth feel.
They say that Gouden Carolus Tripel was brewed for the first time for the Chapter of the Knights of the Golden Fleece in 1491. The Het Hanker Brewery uses the same recipe for today’s Tripel. It’s therefore not surprising to find it has such a traditional character.
The colour of this beer, a light blond, is achieved by means of the malted base, which is obtained only from pale malt. On the nose, we find both the fruity, spicy profile of yeasts and also wonderful hoppy notes leading to citrus notes. The attack in the mouth is powerful and proves that what we’re dealing with is a tripel of character. Wonderful hints of candied apricots and orange then emerge, while the tasting concludes with a dry, refreshing finish in the mouth.
This powerful beer is re-fermented in the bottle and improves with time if left to age in the cellar. If you liked this beer, don’t wait another second: Red Carolus Van de Keizer is right up your street!
