Wonderful large frothy head topping this redbrown Belgian. Hints of raisins and "English Sweets" in the flavor. Hoppy bitter finish.

This beer smells much like a Weiss Beer, but doesn't taste much like one. I enjoyed this beer much more than I expected to. This is much better than their pale ale.

I wasn't saticfied. I expeceted a real fine beer. But the aroma is only a bit of malt, and the taste is a bit sour. Perhaps it was bad?

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2005 Huge frothy latte head. Dark, slightly cloudy reddish brown. Sour hints compliment a generally sweet aroma. Some vinous and Apple notes as well. Medium bodied with smooth carbonation. Nicely done sweetness. A lot of interaction between different sugary flavors. Very light dried fruit notes and a chocolaty, earthy tang. This is all rounded out by a moderate hop bitterness in the finish. This is a steal for the price. A fine example of a fine style.

I did not care for this beer at all. I think that there is way too much chocolate going on in this medium complex brew.

This beer has a great nose. Sweet and malty. A fruity, roasted malt flavor. The champagne of Dubbels. Great looking beer. Awesome.

Yummy! Smells fruity like peaches, plums, raisins, and even raspberries. Drinks like liquid peach cobbler, with a nice doughy malt backbone underscoring fruit and luscious cream with a pinch of spice. Alcohol gives the illusion of WARM peach cobbler sitting in your belly. Give me some more!

Red/brown color with a very large frothy head. Upon opening the bottle the nose is greeted by a fruity sweet wine-like aroma. A sweet fruity(raisin) flavor; slightly sour and yeasty. Lots of carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2003 Pours a nice reddish brown color with a large bubbly head. The aroma was decent...yeasty, slightly sour, fruity. The flavor was full...raisins, slightly sour, yeasty. The only thing about this beer that I didn't particularly like was the feel. The carbonation was just overwhelming. There was simply too much of it. Each drink filled me with copious amounts of unwanted gas. It actually kept me from enjoying what would probably be a magnificent brew.

I looked for this on "www.ratewine.com"...but it wasn't there! What is this apple cider/port doing on ratebeer.com? J/k. Anyways, this beer is a bit apple-cider like for me, even down to the sediment in the bottom of the glass. Cidery, porty, and dry flavor. I liked the beverage, but this Corsendonk is guilty of stretching the definition of "beer."
