Corsendonk Abbey Pale Ale

27 Sep

Belgian Tripel

Rating: B+

Poured from bottle to pint glass.

The beer pours cloudy and golden with some visible sediment. Thin, small-bubbled eggshell head leaves almost no lacing behind. The aroma is spicy (definite coriander), citrusy and fruity (apple among others). The taste is lemony upfront and then sweet, champagney and very fruity with a bit of malt. The mouthfeel is crisp and medium bodied with med-hi carbonation. Dry, bitter finish. The sediment leads me to believe that my bottle may have been a bit out of date.  I owe this beer another shot.
