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.

Light golden color, fine head. Nose is yeasty with hints of fresh fruit and faint hint of hops. Nicely balanced body, very nice semi-sweet malt character, good hop tastes and a little bit of fruit. Very nice beer.

I am still waiting for a beer that is more exciting than this. I just joined RateBeer.com and couldn’t wait to see what people were saying about Corsendonk. As expected, it was all good. They make a ’Monks Brown Ale’ that defines beer! Give it a try.

Excellent. Has a golden color with plenty of head, i didn’t notice any lace. Had nice mellow citcus notes and tasted great out of an official Corsendonk glass. Had this one with dinner and it goes very very good with steak.

The Etruscan (498) - Tuscany, ITALY - JAN 13, 2002
Light golden color slightly cloudy and impressive head. The fruity (orange) aroma is also present in sweet flavour (sugar candy and coriander). Light body. Very drinkable for a 7.5% alc.

The midpoint between a tripel and an american pale ale. All the fruitiness of Duvel or Fin Du Monde plus a hefty dose of Sierra Nevada-y hops.. Massive head. A classic.

Forget Miller - if you’re a beer lover wishing for a good beer substitute for champagne on New Year’s Eve, this comes much closer to being the Champagne of Beers (plus, you don’t have to miss out on popping a cork). Its got a light cloudy golden color with a spritely bubbly head that fizzles out quickly, yet maintains a bubbly mouthfeel. Flavor is mainly sweet but not cloying, virtually no bitterness. Yeast dominates, with a yeasty breadiness plus a lemony sourness. This is not one of the great Belgian ales, but its pretty good and makes a much more drinkable beverage on New Year’s Eve than some nasty champagne.

Nice and mellow -- light bodied although heavy on the alcohol. Nice slight hop twang. Frothy head and beautiful color (yellow orange). I still found myself waning for the dubbel -- there is just nothing that stands out for me on this one.

A very impressive beer. I had the pleasure of the three liter bottle at my bachelor party.

I introduced a guy at my local pub to this one and after his first drink he said, ’Now thats entertainment!’ Very crisp and flowery. Wonderful.

Probably the best beer I’ve had.
