Corsendonk Agnus Abbey Tripel is a strong example of the style. It pours with a bright golden body, lots of carbonation, and a ton of foamy head. Fruit and citrus aroma; raisins, a little bit of coriander. That Belgian yeast just brings it every time, nothing else is quite as nice in the nose. The flavor is bright and crisp, lots of fizz, and the malt gets big at the swallow. Only a hint of booziness gives away the ABV. But if you finish this 75cl bottle, you'll feel it. This is a clean tripel ale that would pair well with just about anything.
