Gouden Carolus – Tripel by Brouwerij Het Anker
Per the Het Anker website, this beer was originally brewed for the Knights of the Golden Fleece in 1491 so I had to pull out the gold rimmed glass for this golden tripel with a long lasting creamy white head. Nice mild, spicy aroma with orange and malt sweetness working in harmony. A little spicy, citrusy followed by light hop bitterness and pleasant alcohol, finishes dry with a grain character. Easy drinking and refreshing with no overpowering flavors, completely hides it’s 9% alcohol.
