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.

Pours a clear golden color with a medium top of white head that disolves rapidly, with some lacings on the glass. Aroma is off bread,banan,apricot,oranges and vanilla. Flavour is sweet and fruity with bready notes in the back, gets more hints of spices in the middle while it finishes off dry with a decent lenght in the aftertaste.It has amedium body with a lively carbonation, and crisp and clean mouthfeel. Considering that this beer is so easyly available around in Europe is quite a good option to buy it. Is not an extremly exiting beer, but it taste like a classic belgian blonde. Would sure drink it again.
