After tasting my first and second Oud Bruins alongside Rodenbach (which is what I would like to emulate) I find the flavor quite similar, but the body and mouthfeel disappointing. Is this a matter of how the yeast works, or should I crank up the crystal and/or other grains?

The first batch was fermented in primary with Abbey yeast and Roselaire in secondary and is 16 months old now, and the second with Roselaire only, and is a few months younger.

Hmmm...I don't know. It could be several things - final gravity of your beers compared to Rodenbach, specific grain bill, mash temperature, etc.
