Corsendonk Abbey Pale Ale

Brewery Du Bocq

Belgium

This came in a 7.5% ABV, 750 mL, monk-brewed bottle of goodness. It's corked, so you need to drink at one sitting (because I can't tell you how to re-cork it....if you know someone who does, better go ask them, otherwise drink all of this at once). Quite tasty. Kind of a lemony, wheaty taste, very smooth, not too much of a hop presence, but that's OK, it doesn't need it, it has too much else going for it. In all honesty, I can't tell you what else, because this was my last beer of the evening, and Kris pussed out and didn't drink his glass, so I drank the whole bottle, after having 3 other high alcohol content beverages that night, so by the end of this beer, I was toasted, which probably made BaseKetball even funnier. So, rent BaseKetball and drink Corsendonk, and you'll have a good time. This review doesn't do it for you? Tough, go ask Michael Jackson how it was....remember though, he'll use words you'll have to look up in a dictionary.

Ugh. Look, pigfucker, can I call you pigfucker? I didn't "puss out". I just didn't like it. It had a funny taste. I'm sure I'll get blasted by the Belgian beer lovers, but screw them. I don't have to like every beer I try, and I'm not here to please everyone, just me. I tell you, I keep trying Belgian beers, and I'm still not impressed with them.
