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.

Mild hop aroma with grapefruit, banana, clove. Slightly hazy yellow color with great lacing and overall appearance. Slightly hoppy flavor with certain Belgian wit complexities. Sweet and tart, refreshing and delightful. Very good Belgian with a nice dose of hops to counter the spiciness.

I really enjoyed the subtleties and complexities this one offered before ven enjoying the first taste. The aroma is exquisite. I do not believe this one is as good as the Christmas Ale, but definitely a runner up. Very light in color like a witbier, but a head that just stays and lacing that is present throught the duration of the drink. Powerfully hoppy and complex with a balance that is impressive. Finish is noble with a slightly sweet bitterness.

Very good... not as good as the Corsendonk brown ale, but still excellent. A little lighter in color, a little more alcohol in flavor. I missed the grapes and fruity taste. If you haven't tried the Brown Ale, then you haven't tasted Corsendonk.

very different. Very yeasty and full of flavor. I won't drink it again but it was worth trying.

This brew pours a light cloudy honey amber. The tall white frothy head is of average duration with good lacing. The nose is weak with hints of fruit and sawdust, chalky banana, alcohol, yeast and flowers. The flavor is metallic and shallow especially for the style. A hint of warmth and sweetness is recognizable. The light dry body is fizzy and the finish feels metallic. I'm not impressed. I'm definitely not feeling the love.

Lively, golden color, not quite clear. Pale malt aroma, some hops. Fizzy, yet full bodied. Very nice.

ARMed (622) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 19, 2003
A typical highly carbonated belgium beer with a cloudy color and a citrus flavor. Not a bad belgium, but certainly not better or worse than the typcial Belgium. I was hoping for a little bit more, but came away with the typical Belgium abbey.

ClarkVV (4058) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 18, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2004 Light yellow/somewhat cloudy, with some honey/golden tinges. Smells like a mix of hops and yeast, though more citrus hoppiness than yeast. Begins very dry, like biting into a not yet ripe green apple. Some body comes through and there is a understated hop character with some floral tones. I thought it finished medium full and did not thin out. There was the typical yeasty taste left on the palate and some sour notes to go with it. Drawbacks are a tad bit of astringency and maybe a bit too much carbonation, though this is a great tripel, no hint of alcohol.

This poured an orangish yellow color with a small head that left nice lacing. It had a fruity slightly musty aroma. Had a light fruity citrus and banana flavor,,, very good.
