COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It has a very big head indeed - pour it gently - and a very clean palate, beginning with a dry, lightly citric fruitiness, and finishing with a distinctive and delicate, perfumy, hop character. Very light and fluffy in texture, giving little hint of its strength.

UPDATED: AUG 5, 2004 Grand white forthy head with beatiful lacing. Clear 10k gold color. A very attractive beer. The smell was a fruity sweetness with some quality yeastyness behind. The taste was not quite what I was expecting considering the look and smell. It was slightly sweet on the beginning with a mild dry finish with very modest hops. Quite yeasty. Not as robust as I would have liked...smooth, but mild. The palate was smooth, efferevescent but thinner than I would like. Still, not bad.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - JUN 27, 2004
Bottled. Enjoyed in the town square of Saint Emilion, Bordeaux, France. Pale golden colour with a medium to large soft white head served correctly in its own glass. Medium white head. Sour dough, bready aroma. Sour flavour with a sharp astringent edge.

Gold Coloring. White Frothy Head. I was half-expecting an attack on the taste buds....but it was surprisingly smooth...yeast, hops...really not a bad beer...very smooth for higher alcohol.

badgerben (4608) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUN 18, 2004
Very golden color with a head that bites back. Floral aroma and taste. Yeast and hops are present. I didn’t find this terribly complex and not nearly as amazing as I was hoping, but it’s still alright.

Bottled. Very pale, light, yet rich, yeasty, perfumy, tasty. A good belgian.

Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - JUN 17, 2004
This is a good Belgian drink, A mild taste for the 7.5 Alc. Very smooth for me, Fairly overpriced, but a quality brew nonetheless, It could be better though, I must say, I was wanting this beer for a long time, but was a bit disapointed in the overall quality, For the 750 ml I bought, I would rather have 2 Chimay! LOL!

AlabastorJones (810) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 9, 2004
Insanely fluffy white head, foggy golden appearance, very carbonated, smells like crispy hops and fruity malts, robust flavor, lemon, banana, creamy mouthfeel, bitter finish, the 7.5 is well masked, just like the campus masterbator.

What happened to this beer? This was the beer that got me into Belgian ales many years ago. I opened a bottle last week to find an adjuncty (corn and rice?), dull beer with a slight metallic taste. It looked and tasted like expensive Budweiser. Awful. Until they get their act together and fire whoever ran this once-great beer into the ground, I would avoid Corsendonk.

Golden, thin head. Aroma from yeast and tea. Flavor is yeasty and also btings some sour milk. Not my kind of beer.

Crockett (1032) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 18, 2004
Nice bottle! Huge white head. Light gold and cloudy. Very busy carbonation. Grassy citric aroma lots of floral notes. Some wheat beer character although very bold and spiced. Bread crusts stand out. Mild apple and just the lightest caramel. It was very satisfying. Different from a lot of tripels I have had. But, easily one of the best.
