A- / 4.0
Tripel Karmeliet

Tripel Karmeliet is still brewed to an authentic beer recipe from 1679 originating in the former Carmelite monastery in Dendermonde. Written over 300 years ago, this recipe describes the use of three kinds of grain: wheat, oats, and barley.

A- / 4.0

Had this on tap in a Tripel Karmeliet glass at Ground Control Coffee in Goodyear, AZ (a must-try if you’re ever in Arizona near Phoenix).

Appearance – Cloudy pale golden color with thick head that dissipates but leaves plenty lacing.

Smell – Barley and Orange

Taste – Smooth bready malt with light citrus tones (more lemon-lime than orange in flavor), and the alcohol is not overly present as in most tripels.

Mouthfeel – Smooth with very light carbonation. Medium body.

Drinkability – This was a good beer. The citrus is there without any real bitterness and the malt balances well with it. Definitely something I would drink again.
