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.

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.

I carefully ease out the squeaky cork to a satisfyingly dramatic pop. Pours straw-colored and teeming with bubbles; one third beer and two thirds foam. Perfumey but restrained aromas of spice, citrus, old barn and white pepper, and American ’pilsner’. Light honeyed and malty sweetness leads to coppery, floral, earthy/herbal, and mellow yeast flavors. Palate starts creamy and fluffy, ends lightly buttery. Disappointing sour metallic taste, corny and grainy, concentrated megaswill; is this brewed with maize? Additional pours from the 750ml botle are exactly the same as the first. Starts like a decent Belgian, ends like budlite. I agree with DarkElf’s rating, below.

slightly hazy gold, white head. flowery yeasty notes in the nose with honey, spicy pepper and bicuity malt. slight citrus in the flavour with nice balance between the spicy yeast and bitterness.

Clear pale golden with an enormous pillowy pure white head. The aroma is very nice, a mix of yeast, perfume and fruit. The flavor follows in the footsteps of the aroma, flowery and fruity. The hops are subdued but the sweetness is not over powering. Medium light dry body. A very nice beer, especially given how hard it would be to hide a flaw in this light beer. The 7.5% ABV is a shock to me, well hidden!

AndersR (195) - Århus, DENMARK - APR 16, 2004
33cl bottle. Pale Yellow with extremely huge and lasting head. Aroma is fruity (citrus) and very flat acidic and yeasty. After an interresting aroma, the taste was a bit dissapointing, but the reward comes seconds later when a complex and very refreshing mixture of citrus, hoppy balanced bitternes and a distant acidic flatness. The taste goes on and on.. A very well balanced beer!

rlgk (13385) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 15, 2004
Golden/yellow with a bubbly head. Has a yeasty and malty aroma that also brings some sweet fruit. Flavor is yeasty as well allows some malt to comer through. Some metal is there as well. Not the best of belgians...

PetetheMeat (621) - Hove, DENMARK - APR 11, 2004
Pale gold, slightly hazy. White head with some laces. High Carbonation. Sweetish flavour with vague traces of yeast. Fruit (pear, green apples?). Perfumy undertones (hops?). Floral. The palate is soft, despite of the rather hard carbonation. Overall a very good tripel indeed.
