In an article in 2005,  Bill Schneller wrote about the tricks of the trade when it comes to brewing Belgian-style beers. Schneller mentions that Belgian styles are a great place to experiment with adjuncts like corn, wheat, or rye. Corn, that all-American adjunct, is great in Belgian-style ales because it keeps its color and body light. The combination between the flaked corn and the sugar creates a lighter beer and accentuates the yeast aromas.
