My favorite of the Corsendonk beers. The rousse poured out darkish amber, with a red tint perhaps, and a smallish white head. A bit yeasty scent, but the smell is overwelmingly citrus: orange and lemony.

The head has settled to a haze. Very sweet on the taste, a nice round, fizzy sweetness on the front of the tongue: orange, lemon and graphs flavors. Other spicy notes that I can’t place. A very good overall taste, but almost hard to call this a beer, the sweetness is so overwhelming. Very little to no bitterness and hops. A little alcohol flavor on the finish, but I was quite surprised this was an 8% ABV beer. Nice texture, quit a lot of carbonation. Very easy to drink. Reminds me a bit of a berry Weiss, but the flavor is even less complex and maybe smoother. A nice taste, but it doesn’t linger very long. The alcohol content will catch up to you quick after a few sips!

This is a great, easy-to-drink beer, especially for when you want a break from a “beer-tasting” beer, or for those friends who claim they don’t like beer. I think it would be perfect in the early springtime with noodles and prima vera vegetables.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

.33 liter bottle in a mug

A: Dark golden/light amber color. Clear. White foamy head, 2 fingers at pour. Decent retention.

S: Very faint notes of fruitiness and caramel. Underwhelming.

T: Very pleasant and more than expected from the smell. Quite a bit of sweetness, caramel notes. Some earthy yeast flavor in the finish with a slight bit of alcohol. The 8% ABV is well hidden behind the sweetness. Malt flavors become more pronounced as you go.

M: Crisp, medium bodied. Dry but well-rounded, quite a bit of carbonation.

O: A solid, enjoyable beer for it's style. Even somewhat reminiscent of some quads I've had, though drier and lighter. Found myself at the end thinking I'd happily try this brew again.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

L: almost perfect look; two fingers, lasting foam; cognac-colour;
S: pear, citrus, smells like the Corsendonk Agnus, but with a bit of caramel and celery;
T: as an Agnus-addict this taste was a little disappointment; good, but no more than that; a bit too sweet and too short of hops/bitterness to complete the taste.
M: I thought it was 5%, but looking on the bottle I was surprised to see it was 8%. The sweetness hides the alcohol completely. The carbonation was quite right.

Drink it extra cold, to suppress the sweetness. Otherwise this one will be your disappointment too.

By the way: I don't see this beer on the website of Corsendonk anymore. Has it been withdrawn, not competing with the other Corsendonk-success-stories?
