The four course meal starts with White asparagus with poached egg, baby grey shrimp and mousseline sauce paired with a Palm draft, a Belgian pale ale. Next you get green pea soup with bacon and croutons and a glass of Chimay White, Belgian style Tripel. For the main course they are serving slow cooked rabbit roulade, young veggies, prune compote, bacon and Rodenbach red ale sauce paired with Straffe Hendrik (although they don’t specify I’d hope its the Bruin or Zot Dubbel). For desert you’ll get to enjoy a rice pudding tart with Corsendonk Christmas Beer ice cream and Armagnac prunes. The desert will be served with Corsendonk Christmas draft naturally.
