COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
Marketed as Corsendonk Abbey Brown Ale in North America.
Launched 1982 by Jef Keersmaekers as Pater Noster. Brewed by Brasserie Du Bocq since launch.
Ingredients: Caramel, Pilsen and Munich barley malts, and Saaz, Kent and Hallertau hops
Brewed with roasted malt, hence its deep dark reddish colour. It is a mellow, dark, top-fermented beer, refermented and matured in the bottle to obtain a lively, bubbly beer with a rich head

Brown with a tinge of red. Head is white, thick, and fully lasting. Fruity aroma (red grapes) which makes for a very wine-like experience, underlined with malt. Very sweet flavor; raisins and sun-dried fruit pop into my mind. Each sip seems fuller and more complex than the last. Tops, and I bet it would be even better after a little aging. Thanks to iguanatom for such a splendid beer!

An amazing brown ale. Malty, yeasty, rich fruit hints on the nose and the tongue. I would rate it higher but each bottle seems different from the one before, some are hoppier than others. A must have!

UPDATED: APR 2, 2003 fruity aromas, with a subtile look of what's to come. This stuff is good! I don't usually go for fruity beer, but this one ROCKS!

Deep brown/red. Large head. Very malty nose with raisins and plums. Palate is filled with port flavors, raisins and dates. A very good Dubbel.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - MAR 10, 2003
This had a lot of citrus and astringent flavors mixed in with the somewhat fruity malt - reminded me of a carbonated wine in a way. Finish was dry but had some sourness to it. Deep ruby brown with off white head and nice lacing.

ConiseurofBeer (242) - Downingtown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 7, 2003
I really liked this beer. My first observation was the sweet, fuity, almost wine like nose. Then when I poured it the dark thick sponge like head, and lastly the sweet, smooth, fruity, with a hint of choclate flavor. Definintly the best beer I've so far this year.

mickblueeyes (106) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 5, 2003
This brown ale has amber glints and a thick, foamy white head. The nose is citrusy (lemons) with blood/copper and underripe strawberry notes. The palate is very bubbly, almost too much so with a slightly astringent lemony characteristic and very little malt. The finish is lgithly astringent, coppery and mildly spicy.

Draught, Don Quiotte, Bruges. I loved this beer, a nice deep brown with a chunky white head. Fruity in character with malt and hops both evident. Nicely balanced and very drinkable.

A superb ale from a great brewer. Lots of carbonation, and full bodied. Great aroma. Enjoyed very much.
