Review: Tripel Karmeliet

Tripel Karmeliet from Brouwerij Bosteels
Rating: A

When served in the appropriate glassware at Stubbie Shirt Pub in Gainesville, this beer is a majestic hazy golden in color with good lacing. Very nice looking. Aroma is very nice: fruity and spicy, with Belgian yeast characteristics, although perhaps not quite as appealing as St. Bernardus' tripel... Taste is along the same lines, fruit and spice, very light on the hops. Touch of vanilla, alcohol presence well-hidden. Very well balanced. Mouthfeel is very smooth, carbonation is good. Drinkability is high - a very good beer.

Serving type: bottle
