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.

Belgik (72) - Sterrebeek, BELGIUM - FEB 19, 2002
Thick white foam over a perfectly limpid gold brew with a steady stream of bubbles. Quite hoppy aroma, with some fruitiness, clean. The foam tastes bitter, the beer has some hoppy bitterness. The taste is refreshing but not particularly intense. There is a little viscosity to the fluid, and overall I find it to lack maltiness and a sufficiently satisfying body. This beer’s not unlike a weaker version of Duvel.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2007 Rerate: this beer was supposed to be very good. But during the years it has actually not become better. Much more carbonating, less balanced. Original rating 4.3: Even better then the Pater, the Agnus has a very good taste and especially the aroma, does me think of Duvel, a beer which i can enjoy very much. A nice pale brew, made in the triple style i think. Just good beer!

Light in color, light to medium body. Very drinkable for 7.5% alchohol content. Sweet finish with a hint of cloves/coriander.

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.

FUNK (120) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 20, 2002
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 (544) - 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.

FlemishChar (224) - Virginia, USA - JAN 5, 2002
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.
