Tripel Karmeliet

This is good stuff.  It pours orange-gold, bubbly and produces a big head.  The bouquet of Tripel Karmeliet is sharp with sweet notes, yeasty and very complex.  I can’t exactly figure it out, maybe citrusy notes are most prominent, but there is more to it.  It has a smooth mouthfeel, is sugary and warms the stomach.  Interestingly, the bouquet led me to believe the taste would be equally complex, but it wasn’t.  Not much of a hops presence.  I would put this in the “very good” category, and a good beer to lead you up to my next post, Trappistes Rochefort 10, which is amazing.
