Corsendonk Christmas Ale

Brewery Du Bocq

Belgium

This was quite a flashy label for a beer brewed by Trappist monks. But, maybe it's by the younger monks of the iPod generation. Quite enjoyable, even in the middle of April, and the bonus was it came in a special holiday pack with a Corsendonk glass, to add to my collection. And, I now think my wife is right, I'm starting to develop an OCD with beer glasses. Oh well, it's worth it. Corsendonk went well with the Christmas roast beef, and an after dinner drink on a warm night. Nice fruity aroma, rich sweet flavor, and a nice 8.5% abv to help me sleep well. I'm definitely making this a Christmas regular. (11/1/2006 edit: Rumor has it it's not brewed by monks at all. Maybe by Oompa-Loompas, but definitely not monks. Finding out for sure requires that I do research. I haven't done any for 10 years, I'm not about to start now. Research is for suckers.)
