This looked interesting in the store (Carrefour @Malmedy, Belgium). I hadn't heard of it before, and then found out it is contract brewed by du Bocq for the grocery giant. I wasn't expecting much, so was quite surprised this it is a decent Belgian blonde. Nice deep copper, color; thick creamy, sticky head and ample carbonation. Poured into a Grimbergen goblet, it looks gorgeous. A little mild on the flavor side, but still tasty. This will proably be hard to find in the US (or anywhere outside of a Carrefour), but there are better Belgians to be had. Still enjoyable though, and affordable.
