rederic (3256) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 25, 2005
Bright pale yellow color, with a foamy white head, straw, citrus note and pale malt aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a smooth pale malt, a nice floral hop, and hint of fruitiness, leading towards a crisp zesty fry bitterness finish.

blankboy (7227) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 12, 2005
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry -- courtesy of HogTownHarry. Pours a clear light-gold with a small diminishing white head. Unlike the other Budels I think I may have spotted a few bubbles in this one. Aroma of sweet malt, fruit, light hops and a little something off or sour. Flavour of grain, yeast, fruit and a sweet finish. Mediocre and certainly not a Belgian Ale.

HogTownHarry (6375) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - NOV 10, 2005
Bottle (330ml). Shared with Blankboy - Budel giftpack adventure 4 of 6. Poured clear gold, pretty flat looking, with an average diminishing white head. Aroma of mild sweet hay, malt; lightly fruity (banana? pear?) - but ultimately not much of anything. Taste is lemony-honeyish, malt sweet, taste of alcohol at the end - sort of like grainy cold medication, no linger to the taste. Mouthfeel is soft, light bodied, very flat (again with Budels). Overall a bit sweet, it doesn’t seem to know what it wants to be.

Eructoblaster (3845) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 7, 2005
Limpid golden body with average carbonation and decent white foamy head. Its malty/hoppy aroma is rather unidimensional and thus boring. Taste is unbalanced and dominated by some unpleasant and harsh bitterness. Ends with a bitter/metallic finish. This has nothing to do with the Belgian Ale style.

TBone (16165) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 15, 2005
Bottled (BB 01/2006)
Golden color, not much head. Malty, rye bread aroma. Medium-bodied, malty, a bit harsh-bitter and alcoholic. Nothing really wrong with this, but simple and in the class B of "Belgium" ales.

Crockett (1089) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 8, 2005
Pours gold with a short white head. Corny malt with faint minty hop aroma. A bit too mediciney to be pleasing. Not the freshest bottle either. Cellared for about a year. Had it before, neither exciting at either sample. Predominated by a detergents, cedar, and some juniper. Carrots, crackers. Syruppy mouthfeel and flat as the carbonation has no "pick-up". Herbacious and not really sweet. Has just enough malts to back it up. Dry stale finish. Just doesn’t taste good.

bierkoning (12405) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - AUG 7, 2005
Tap, Café Morshuis Albergen. Hopbitter flavor. Stony, lke beer has been lagered over a heap of stones. Nice mouthfeel. Pleasant beer.

mrkimchee (1414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 31, 2005
clear gold, white head. intense floral hop and clean malt aroma more like a strong lager than a belgian. sweet bready malt beginning going quite dry and hoppy.

caesar (6644) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 31, 2005
Draft, Kafe Belgie. Clear yellow color, medium white head. Aroma is quite hoppy, some spice, bit floral. Pleasant bitter and slightly dry taste. Nice balance for a Budels beer, which are usually not the best. Probably the draft version is better than the bottled version, because than the beer is somewhat softer and less outspoken in taste.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 23, 2005
(Botle 30 cl) Pilsener golden with a small, white head. Fresh, floral, hoppy nose. Quite malty with a weak, underlying sweetness which is quickly blown away by dry, bitter hops. This lacks some body. Somehow this appears more like a strong German pilsener - it really hasn’t got much of an ale-feel. Unusual. 220705
