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.

Sweet tasting. Golden color. Good and strong. Lots of head. Finishes with a desire to have another.

pfhyde (59) - Davis, California, USA - JAN 13, 2006
Its like aged Duvel without the bite--very smooth for a tripel, almost too smooth, and for this reason, I dont see why they dont try to push for a higher ABV. But if I were in the mood for a blonde and had to choose between this and Duvel, Id go with Corsendonk, unless the Duvel were aged well enough. This assumption will have to be tested, though.

Britales (56) - Cape Charles, Virginia, USA - JAN 2, 2006
More like a Blonde to my taste! Dry, yeasty with a definite citrus presence. Floral aroma! I kept looking for some complexity as it warmed slightly but I detected very little.Bitter on the finish but it does not linger at all1 Quite disappointing!!

temporrari (397) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 1, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2007 Golden straw pour, large white head. Aroma is sweet and fruity, lightly yeasty, just a tiny touch of sourness. Flavor is mainly the same, just a bit more sour than the aroma, a definite apple presence, and somewhat dry, although the aftertaste leaves a sweetness in your mouth. Crisp, delicate, pretty light and lively, great mouth-feel. Nicely done, and very tasty.

sammy3D (141) - Lawrenceville, Georgia, USA - DEC 29, 2005
Pours a light golden with a respectable head. Tart with hints of banana, lemon and buttery yeast on the nose. The flavor is also tart with a spicy dryness and only a hint of sweet fruit. Higher level of hop character that lends to the dry finish. Fizzy and medium light in the mouth. An enjoyable tripel.

Hunsell (403) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 28, 2005
Golden coloured beer with an out-of-proportion white head. Citrussy nose, yeasty. Taste again with citrus, thick, but not full taste. Not really bitter but very dry. Too dry for my liking.

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - DEC 24, 2005
Pours a cloudy goldern yellow with chunks of suspended yeast. Lots of carbonation in the pour. Aroma has a sour and yeasty smell in it. Flavor is very crisp with an apple sourness to it. Also present is floral hops and sharp tartness.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2006 Chris says, "tastes like blood and sugar". Anyways, I dug this one. Not much to write about, your prototypic tripel. Dug the cargbonation on this one, the hop bite and bubbles created a great mouthfeel.

750ml bottle. Pours a pale yellow gold color with a fizzy white head. Nose is straw, hay, light pineapple, yeast. Taste is fizzy, light pineapple and straw, some grass notes and a light fizzy finish.
