Food Pairing: Barbecue cuisine. Sharp, blue, cheddar, pungent, gorgonzola, limberger cheeses. Grilled Meat & Beef.
Brewery: Brouwerij Corsendonk
Seasonal Availability: Winter
Beverage Type: Belgian Strong Dark Ale On the same path as the Belgian Dark Ale but obviously higher in alcohol with more of an all around character. The alcohol character can be deceivingly hidden or can be very bold and in your face. Look for lots of complexity within a delicate palate. Hop and malt character can vary, most are fruity and may have mild dark malt flavors. Phenols will range from minimal to high and most will be light on the hops. All in all most are spicy and alcoholic.



Corsendonk Christmas Ale is brewed every year during the holiday season and is availabel from Novemver until the end of February. For this reddish brown Christmas beer, the Corsendonk bewer uses roasted special malts, the finest hops and selected yeasts, spiced up with a touch of coriander. With its delicate malty nose, Corsendonk Christmas Ale has everything what only the very best Christmas beer could possibly offer: a round, balanced taste with a dry and refined aftertaste.

Brewery: Brouwerij Corsendonk
Seasonal Availability: Year Round
Beverage Type: Tripel The name "Tripel" actually stems from part of the brewing process, in which brewers use up to three times the amount of malt than a standard Trappist "Simple." Traditionally, Tripels are bright yellow to gold in color, which is a shade or two darker than the average Pilsener. Head should be big, dense and creamy. Aroma and flavor runs along complex, spicy phenolic, powdery yeast, fruity/estery with a sweet finish. Sweetness comes from both the pale malts and the higher alcohol. Bitterness is up there for a beer with such a light body for its strength, but at times is barely perceived amongst the even balance of malts and hops. The lighter body comes from the use of Belgian candy sugar (up to 25% sucrose), which not only lightens the body, but also adds complex alcoholic aromas and flavors. Small amounts of spices are sometimes added as well.

Tripels are actually notoriously alcoholic, yet the best crafted ones hide this character quite evil-like and deceivingly, making them sipping beers.



A full bodied, blonde, top fermented beer, refermented and matured in the bottle to obtain a lively, bubbly beer with a herbal bouquet and hoppy aftertaste.
