Corsendonk "Agnus Tripel Ale"
Brouwerij Corsendonk - Turnhout, Belgium
Abbey Tripel (ABV 7.5%)

[Best served in a Trappist glass]

Rating: 3.7/5.0

Aroma: 8/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 4/5
Overall: 14/20

The pour was a light golden amber with an average sized (1-2 finger) white creamy head that lasted throughout and produced excellent sheeting of lace which totally engulfed the whole glass.

The aroma was of a grain malt, perfume hops and a soapy yeast with notes of citrus (lemon), honey and coriander.

The taste was lightly sweet with a malty wheat feel and a hint of honey from the beginning with the finish being a little bitter and a tad sour with a strong yeast presence and a light spicy hop ending. The flavor lasted only a short while with the mild hoppy spice taste and a slight alcohol warming sensation left behind.

Mouthfeel was between light and medium in body with a dry creamy texture and a very lively carbonation.

Overall a Tripel that is not overpowered by any one flavor, on the contrary the blending of flavors in this brew is exquisitely done...
