Gouden Carolus Tripel

750 mL corked & caged bottle.

Rather disappointing appearance, a bit flat and a very murky orange colored mess make up the body. I was hoping for a rather more yellow, clearer body. Some nice head, but it’s gone all too quickly. Appearance is this beers weakest link. (I am beginning to wonder how old this bottle really is).

Aroma and taste are typical for the style, with strong Belgian yeasts and fruits dominating the overall experience. Obviously there is the alcohol and the sugar, but these are lower-key than many others of the same style.

Nice mouthfeel with a tiny bitterness in the shortish finish.

Pretty ordinary example of the style, I enjoyed it but I expect more from an authentic belgian Tripel.
