on draught. This is a light copper with a fast fading head. The aroma is quite sweet and floral. Very smooth body with perdominant sweet lemons nd a slight bright hop note. This fades well to a palatable sugar and clove flavor. Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 28, 2005
clear, light yellow colour, average diminishing head, rather short but strong fruity aroma, with a lot of hops. Smouth and herby palate, with an enjoyable bitter finish. A top-beer. 2late2brew (14) - the woodlands, Texas, USA - NOV 24, 2005
Love the flowery hop nose with subtle musty Belgian yeast character. solid rounded Pilsner malt with a firm medium body, some candy sugar notes, carbonation high leading one to believe not as strong as it is. The most complex Tripel to date. I love Chimay but Corsendonk Agnus beats it hands down because of the malt presence. Tripel Karmeliet is delicious but leans towards sweetness and lacks the crisp finish or the hop nose of Corsendonk. Not as clean/attenuated as Westmalle but more of everything else considered to be classic components of a Belgian Abbey Ale. requires some skill at pouring enhanced with clean and proper glassware, next puchase a Magnum of Corsendonk Agnus.

Poured hazy yellow, HUGE head which lasted the entire beer. Spicy nose and palate accompanied by dry spice, and aftertatse. Creamy head, fruit which included apricot and other light additions, a well done beer.

Hazy blonde ale with a creamy lacing white head. Wonderful resinous hops aroma with rosewater notes and some sweet candy sugar. In mouth, a nice sweet malt base with good hops in retro-olfaction, coriander and again the rosewater, like lebanese pastries. God that’s good. Bought 1 year ago at LCBO. sunevdj (4084) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - NOV 1, 2005
Pours a slightly hazy warm yellow with a white head. Sweet and full. Sharp aromas of clover/grass and some fresh acidic hoppiness. Also fruity aromas of banana and yeast. Long, sharp, sweet finish. Magjayran (1378) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 28, 2005
