Greater than the sum of its ratings. On tap at the Nice airport, once past the passport control it's this or H******n. Poured into plastic Affligem logoed cup, moderate head, extravagant tenuous lacing. Nose of stone fruit and bready yeast, really sweet malt, saved at the last minute by a decently bitter hop finish. It doesn't sound great from my description, and it really isn't, but it's still very nice. A pleasant surprise.

Medium white head on a clear golden body. Banana, peppery yeast, grains, honey. Medium to high sweetness with an esthery, mildly bitter finish. High carbonation, a hint of bitterness. Sweet, sweet gold. Very sweet. No balance whatsoever.

Refreshing and flavorful blonde. It's a great version of the lighter Belgian ale.
