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.

Gorbalev (3000) - 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 (9070) - 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 (698) - 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.
