Banner Boudelobier

The beers in the Abbey Series are typical classic abbey beers released under the name Boudelo, referring to the former abbey in Klein-Sinaai.
This line forms the most traditional line of The Musketeers. The brewers went back to their brewing roots and created recipes of rock solid quality. Typical styles are blond, triple and grand cru. Evergreens that can charm a broad public, aiming for a less specialised beer drinker who loves a traditional speciality beer.

The Boudelo Abbey has an air of mystery about it, spiced with interesting excavations and exciting stories. The first traces in Klein-Sinaai date back to 1197 and since then Boudelo Abbey has expanded, including underground secret passages, hidden treasures and an abbey beer. In the 16th century, the Abbey of Boudelo moved to Ghent and the brewing activities continued there. Boudelo Abbey disappeared in the 19th century, just like the beer, but the stories about Boudelo Abbey make people talk. That is exactly what The Musketeers Brewery aims at: talking beer.

Boudelo Blond is a clear, blond beer, with a nice white head. A very refreshing start, supported by a nice saturation, is followed by a light, sweet malty body with spicy aromas thanks to a late hopping with a blend of Belgian hops. A bitterness slowly makes its appearance. Boudelo Blond is more bitter than pils but less bitter than an IPA. The slightly drier, bitter aftertaste makes it very thirst-quenching. Despite the alcohol percentage of 5.8%, you experience a full taste. Just as easy to drink as an export, but with a bit more spice!

 

Brewers talking: "Back to the roots, or so we thought! With the Boudelo beers, we breathed new life into the old abbey of Klein-Sinaai and created a series of abbey beers that everyone loves."

 

Testimonial: "Boudelo Blond is a blond beer as it should be! Deliciously refreshing and appropriate at any time. We already know what our favourite beer will be after football practice!" STEVEN

Besides the trappist, an abbey beer or tripel is recognised worldwide as a speciality of the Belgian beer culture. Brewery The Musketeers has launched many beers with innovative flavours, but we like to keep the Belgian traditions alive! Boudelo Tripel is a tripel pur sang: fruity notes from the yeast, a spicy and floral hop aroma derived from traditional hops and a smooth taste, rounded off with a warming alcohol feeling.

Brewers talking: "A triple, the classic among abbey beers, could not be missing from this line. We are sure it will conquer the heart of the beer lover!"

Testimonial: "A game night with friends cannot be without a Tripel! Boudelo Tripel is exactly what I expect from an abbey beer: a fine taste with a full aftertaste!"  DANIEL

Boudelo Grand CruBoudelo Grand Cru is a copper-blond beer with an aroma of caramel and spices. The beer tastes malty and spicy and you notice clear hints of apricot and nuts. You also taste a fresh and fruity tint. A sweeter and softer mouthfeel with a long aftertaste warms you up completely!

Brewers talking: "An accessible beer that is sure to please a wide audience! We brewed a lightly spiced, coppery-blond beer, a Grand Cru full of character!"

Customers talking: "How nice! This beer refers to the former abbey in Klein-Sinaai, the village where I live. Talk about a local beer! But so good that I want to introduce it to my friends from other regions too!"  ASTRID
