God almighty. I bought the Budels boxed set through the LCBO, thinking that a Belgian set would be pretty good. Well, I was really, really wrong. They were ALL terrible, and the Parel was one of the worst. Smells and tastes like lager with cheap perfume in it.

Bottle. Golden orange in colour. Aroma of apple juice, weak cider and was quite sweet. Flavour had floral hops at first turning to cardboard and stale malts near the back, Finish is long with a medium bitterness.

Lubiere (10846) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 8, 2005
Golden yellow beer with thick creamy white head. Very sweet aroma, light spices and perfumey. Sweet cloying malt, unpleasant, almost like a malt liquor! The Dutch dont have an high opinion of their flemmish brethrens!

Boutip (5065) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 18, 2005
Bottle: Poured a golden color ale with a below medium head with very little retention. Aroma is quite weak with only some malt being noticeable. Taste is quite light with some malt noticeable and a creamy feeling near the ends. I have hard time to believe they even try to do a Belgian Ale with this but anyway this is plain bad for the style.

Thanks Jadoreblanche for this one! Not too bad overall but I was disappointed by the wateriness. Yellow straw body, fizzy, short lived white head. Aroma is corny, sweet, bready, and slightly malty. taste is sweet bread, raisins ???, malted candies maybe. Watery finish, slight bitter bite in the end but overall a little below average.

Tokkii (1) - USA - FEB 10, 2005 does not count
Unmitigatedly mediocre -- but yet surprising in its unmitigated mediocrity. Appearance of pale lager, yet taste of ... Eternity? Exclamat!on? CKOne? I ask myself: if my girlfriend wore this beer, would I still be together with her? Probably. In any case, itís more likely than getting her to smother herself with imperial stout.

Clear golden colour with a fairly still body and just a faint wisp of head. Aroma is light and fruity, very one-dimensional. Flavour starts fruity as well, turns somewhat bitter & hoppy, and then has a flash of sweetness in the finish. Would be quite refreshing if the body was a little lighter. As others have said, this really doesnít seem very Belgian in style. Itís really seems more like an average pilsener.

Oakes (13272) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 15, 2005
Golden colour. Looks a little flat. Aroma has light malt and a slight fruity note (raspberry). Dry, with slight bready notes. The dryness is a combination of slightly woody hops and alcohol that is only barely balanced.

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2005
Cask conditioned@ JDW, Soton. Complex spicy citric yeasty aroma. Tangy juicy malt with a touch of sourness and chalky yeast. Mouthcoating - becomes almost cloying.
