I had a draft of 25 cl in a glass while in Antwerp -- at Bier Central near my hotel. There was a lot going on in this brew, including, Belgian spiciness with some hop. It's the local and I would not market it as APA. It tasted very fresh, which was probably worth a quarter point.

250ml on keg at t Brugs Beertje, Bruges, Belgium (€3.50):
This one was an excellent beer from De Koninck, very smooth & balance whilst seeming quite refreshing too. It was an easy beer to drink with a nice caramel sweetness from the start & some good nutty flavours, although these seem a little strong on the nose than with the taste. There was a good mix of earthy malts whilst keeping the beer relatively light tasting but it's definitely one that I'd have again.

A kind of dull Belgian pale ale.

At Keepers, Tomares. Malty, sweet caramel notes, very smooth feel, easy to drink. I miss a more bitter end, less mild, but its pleasant. Maybe, light cherries in nose. Good, long lasting and smooth foam

Interestingly, this beer tastes watery from the barrel; From the bottle it is like a different drink, it has more body and flavour and deserves its title as Antwerp's beer.

Beautiful dark amber colour and a full head in the beginning, but this quickly turns into a thin layer. Smell of caramel, cherries, malt and some brown apple. Taste has the same flavours, though it is less sweet than you would expect. It is actually very well balanced. Mouth feel is medium and smooth. Not a very complex beer, but it is meant to be an alternative for the basic pilsener in a bar, and it does a very good job at that.
