What's been more available in US, Corsendonck Brown Ale, or Corsendonck Pale Ale?

Maybe it's been one of those things - blind spots, or when you just don't see what's been under your nose day in and day out, until suddenly you see it as never before...

But, the question is, has there always been the two kinds of Corsendonck all along? I saw them tonight as they stood side by side, in identical bottles, with different bottle neck wraps. The Pale Ale is described as being in the triple style, and the Brown Ale is described as in the dubbel style....There weren't any small bottles for me to check, so now I'm just curious as to whether they're just more common now in the stores here, and also, are they drastically different from each other?

Really, I'm pretty sure I've always read the whole bottle before (a habit) whenever I had Crosendonck. I've never known there were these two different ales.

Someone care to enlighten me?
