Belgian Beer no.273: Park

Moving on to another supermarket beer, this time Aldi. We tried their 'local' beer (?), the Park. An abbey style beer apparently brewed by Brasserie de Haacht. But somehow linked to Abdij van 't Park.
Nothing against it as such, but there are other beers I definitely prefer over Park.

My friend, a Canon Regular of Premontré who lived at Park for a while, tells me that the Abbey sold the rights to make their beer to Aldi or an associate of theirs.

The Abbey of Notre Dame de Leffe did a similar thing; their beer is now made by the Stella Artois brewery in Leuven (where Park is; they are both Norbertine houses in Belgium).
