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

A bit light for such a strong ale. Very nice head, like the Agnus a bit fizzy.

sweet, sugary. Aroma comes through as nice fruit, which also comes through vaguley on the palate. I just want more flavor from this one. It has potential.

Bronstein (175) - Göttingen, GERMANY - DEC 18, 2002
Sweet and strongly sparkling dark ale from Belgium. Tastes very lite for a strong ale. Fruity flavours of many fruits. Definetely not my taste. Give me grapefruit soda instead!

Nothing special here. Nice reddish brown cloudy color. Fluffy head that didn’t seem to last. No lace at all. Body was thin. Flavor was good, sweet and sour throughout. Fruit at the end. Love the bottle though!!

herbstress3 (221) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - DEC 16, 2002
Almost red or burgandy in color as I hold it up to the light. Very soft, creamy and balanced head. Very sparkly and fizzy in my mouth. Also very fruity finish.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - DEC 15, 2002
Lactic aroma. Brown color, light brown head, fair lace. Sweet and sour, orange, bit thin. Short finish. You can drink it and won’t regret it. But I wouldn’t buy it again.

Very nice beer. It’s interesting to find an Abbey "brown ale;" I tend to associate brown ales with thick chocolatey/espresso malt and a fair amount of hops, but this is...well... very Belgian. Beautiful mahogony beneath a large head - smells of dates and plum. Full malt infused with currant and port. Kind of dusty and nice and mellow.

A superior beer that I would like to get to know better. Tasted at Chris & Jack’s Belgian Bar in Namur, Wisconsin, which is the place to stop for Belgians when you’re driving from Green Bay to Door County.

It is a little fruity and wine-like for me, but it isn;t bad. I don’t think i would recognize it as a brown ale by taste.
