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.

Crockett (1008) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 3, 2005
Pours deep amber and syruppy with a tight off white head. Caramel, earthy, light herbal hop aroma. Caramel, dried fruit, raisin, prunes. Doesn’t start off as Belgian as it finishes. Sweet woody malts and light fresh yeast. Appley alcohol. Spicier as it warms up. White pepper and cardomom? Drinkable but not very distinctive.

Ungstrup (29335) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 15, 2004
An amber beer with a beutiful light brown lasting head. The aroma is yeasty combined with notes of wood as well as some spices. The flavor is sweet with notes of berries, wood, caramel, and prunes - the flavor is somewhat overripe. The body is surpriseingly thin for a 6.5% ABV beer.

Finally, the very last bottle from the crappy Budels giftpack from hell ! Pours a clear ruby color with a thin, mostly diminishing white head. Sweet and fruity aroma. The flavor is unpleasant at the beginning but you get used to it, then I can taste, caramel, nuts, yeast and bitterness. Medium body, oily texture. I think it is the best I’ve tasted from Budels but still it’s not great.

Gorbalev (2924) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 3, 2004
Bottle. Light golden brown pour, frothy tan head. Very little aroma - slightly sweet I suppose. Mouthfeel is quite thin and watery, but more than most of this Budels gift pack selection I have tried. Again, not really much here overall, but drinkable enough.

jercraigs (7813) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 28, 2004
Bottle. LCBO Release. Red brown body, small white head. Sweet malty aroma with a touch of alcoholic brown sugar or caramel. Thin bodied, tastes like a watered down dubbel with some nice caramel maltiness drowning in a pool of nothingness. Light bodied. Inoffensive but boring.

wnp22 (685) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - NOV 26, 2004
Tasted in Toronto. Obtained from LCBO as part of seasonal import pack. Tasted in trappist glass. Appearance is deep brown / copper with an initial tan / cream coloured head. Head quickly dissapates in the glass. Aroma is of malt, caramel, toffee. Heavy on the sweet side. Slight hint of alcohol also. The flavour is a bit of a let down as compared with the aroma. Fairly thin mouthfeel, bitter upfront taste with a thin cheap sickly sweet finish.

Dark amber with small head. Some sweet malts in the aroma. Malts also dominant in the flavor, with some caramel aspects. Sticks to the palette a bit.
