COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Abbey beer, ruby colour, top-fermentation beer, outstanding owing to its soft flavour and fantastic aroma. This beer’s name comes from the French Capuchins, who had a monastery in Budel at the beginning of the last century.

OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 20, 2005
Ambrée allant vers le brun, peu de mousse. Arômes de houblons semblant de style anglais, herbacé, quelques pointes de caramel et forte présence de levure. Peut-être dû à l’oxydation présente dans cet échantillon, les flaveurs rappelant l’étrange sensation de boire à même un baril de bois, style vieux cask. Donc, boisée, présence de caramel torréfié, sucre brun et aussi de cuivre usé. Corps d’épaisseur semi mince semblant quelque peu aqueux. Les flaveurs ne semblent pas vouloir s’accommoder. Très ordinaire!

Very doughy, toffee, caramel aroma with underlying black cherry fruitiness. Opaque deep brown with a shy cover of off-white head that recedes immediately to ring. Sweet black cherries, brown sugar and caramel. Medium-light body is somewhat watery with low carbonation. Tulip, just above fridge temp. Bottle (trade, Jun-2005). Thanks, radiomgb!

Sanchex (224) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 12, 2005
Pours with a nice cascading action resulting in a creamy head. Very sweet aroma, milk chocolate, cherries, toffee. Flavour isn’t nearly as complex or interesting as the nose. Sweet finish. Cheers!

Bottle. Deep amber in colour. Aroma was earthy, some wood, malty - mainly dough - and some ginger. Flavour had notes of ginger and mint, earth, and caramel malt. Slightly sweet, medium body and carbonation. Finish is medium lenger, mild bitterness.

Bright reddish-brown colour. Aroma of black cherry, raisin, toffee. Simplistic sweet character. Sweetish, fruity, slightly toffeeish finish.

I just want to cry. A box with SIX Belgian beers, and they ALL sucked. What a waste of money, time, calories and tastebuds. This was unexceptional in all respects, just terrible.

Boutip (4863) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 18, 2005
Bottle: Poured a light dark beer with an average head with very little retention. Aroma is a bit weak with some malt being noticeable. Taste is different then some previous Alt I tried before and includes some roastiness and some bitterness at the ends. There is an overall watery feeling that leave a disappointing taste in my mouth which is deceiving since this one had promises as opposed to other Budels products.

Lubiere (10453) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 11, 2005
Orange amber ale with a thick off-white head, collapsing quickly. Sweet malt and whiff of fruity wet dog. Roasted malts, caramel, with sustained nuttyness, and like Greg said, sweetness in the middle of tasting. Oily mouthfeel. This is supposed to be Belgian style???

Thanks jadoreblanche!!! Pours a dark brown coloured body, with a thin off white head to accompany. Aroma is faintly woody, malty, and toffee. taste is a tad watery, sweet, malty, and slightly woody. Finish is watery, no alcohol or any aftertaste to really talk about. Not bad!
