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.

Bottle at Arendsnest. Clear deep red brown beer with a good pale tan head. Creamy malt nose. Softish palate. Softish creamy malt. A little nutty with subtle fruit and a whisper of bubblegum. Semi soft and semi dry finish. Just a nice nutty malt beer that hangs together really well.

Colour is nice. Decent and average scoring beer. Didn’t take too many notes, since it’s nothing too special.

Abio (1731) - Waasland, BELGIUM - JAN 30, 2011
Pours out darker brown, a medium head that should hold some longer. Sweet smell of red fruits and caramel. Fruits, sweet caramel, malts at the taste.Prunes and raisins. Dry, a bit earthy, specially at the finish. Not my style of dubbel.

MADpalace (219) - Budel, NETHERLANDS - OCT 18, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2011 Dark-red fruity collor. Smell of sweet and bitter. As long as I remember, this is one of my favorites. Licht bitterness, abbey-style beer but much sweeter. It is a pitty that it is also a bit watery. Because it also has this typical strong taste in the background. Do no try this one with heavy food, otherwise the taste is too subtle.

Bottle @ home. Nice dark brown color with a deep dark red glow coming through. Ok smell, bit flat. Taste decent but pretty sweet. Low carbo, low to medium body.

Countbeer (5135) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 25, 2010
Bottle: Nice light brown foamy head. Clear brown color. Smell is a very good mix of brown sugar, crisped and toasted malts, hints of hops, dark fruit (prunes, raisin) and spices. Taste is soft on the tongue but full taste of sugars, malts, fruits, roasted ingredients. Just slightly bitter, more sweet than bitter. Hints of oatmeal and iron. Nicely balanced.

(30cl bottle best by 12-2011 thanks to bu11zeye) clear ruby/copper with tan ring of bubbles. Nose of raisin bread, caramel and brown sugar. Taste is metallic, brown sugar, caramel and a bit of raisins. Soft carbonation and nice linger.

Metalchopz (2559) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 2, 2011
Originally rated January 2006. Last of the Budels brew, part of the 6 pack I got from the LCBO. None of the other brews got my attention, let’s see with this one. Pours a darker colour, like caramel and cola together. Head is tanned, foamy and fizzy, with good retention and very nice lacing. Lively carbonation. The nose had some roasted malts, molasse and hints of Oud Bruin scents, right after pour. It disappear a few minutes after. Medium-bodied palate. Very pleasant taste with some caramel, toffee, raisins and roasted malts. By far, the best Budels, and the only one that is worth trying.
