Top fermented and bottle conditioned, Corsendonk Agnus Tripel is a Belgian Strong Ale that pours a hazy golden color with a thick white head. Aromas include citrus, apple and banana with notes of clove.

Taste follows the nose in a similar flavor profile, with a finish alternately delicate, dry, hoppy and clean, nicely masking the 7.5% ABV.

Food Pairings

Enjoy before, during and after meals, with fish, fowl, seafood and pasta. It's a savory complement to traditional Belgian moules & frites (mussels and fries), and full-flavored and spicy grilled foods.

Pair Corsendonk Agnus Tripel with any light bite or sandwich, such as eggs, salads, soups or even a burger. It's also a perfect accompaniment for your Thanksgiving turkey. Best served at 50°F.


Founded in 1398, the Priory of Corsendonk in Oud-Turnhout, Belgium became a noted brewery and malt house where, for several centuries, the resident monks famously brewed beer as part of the contemplative practice.

But in the late 1700s, by the imperial decree of Austrian Emperor Joseph II, the priory was dissolved and the monastery and all its property sold off.

In the 20th century the Corsendonk brew style and brand was revived and popularized by another area brewer, Antonius Keersmaekers; after his brewery closed, his family partnered with the Du Bocq brewing family to produce and market the Corsendonk brand.

Du Bocq Brewery began as a family farm in Purnode, a town in the Belgian Ardennes near the small river Bocq. In 1858, farmer Martin Belot began selling commercially the top fermented ales he and his staff brewed during the winter months when there was very little work to do in the fields.

The fledgling brewery built a reputation for quality and over time, brewery revenue gradually outpaced farming revenue. By 1960, Du Bocq was concentrated fully on the brewing business.

Today the brewery, still owned by the Belot family and still located in Purnode, distributes award winning ales internationally and occasionally partners with other brew brands, like Corsendonk, to assist in production and marketing.

One of the best beers in the world. I buy a case every once in a while and hand them out as gifts.
