25cl bottle, bought in Ax-les-Thermes (France). Modest lager with a great appearance: white rocky foam and golden liquid. Very subtle malt scent. The taste is rather weak, with a flat bitterness and low sweetness. A nonetheless pleasant medium carbonation adds to the taste. The finish is short.

25 cl bottle, bought in Ax-Les-Thermes, drank @ home. Dark yellow appearance with good white head. Malty aroma with slightly bitter taste, although refreshing. Nothing special, reminds me of an ordinary pils.

50ml can in Vedène. Funny story to this. I was forced to drink this beer in the morning, putting on hold our day trip, as the can fell on a stone and a small hole was born leaking the beer.
Clear blond colored beer with almost no head and no carbonation. Malty metallic aroma. Full sparkling palate. Finish is rather sweet herby ending slight bitter.

Ok but lacks complexity and it really aimed at the mass market. Quite drinkable but can get a bit mundane.

25cl bottle. Another boring French blonde. Just a refreshing beer, nothing more.

I enjoyed this beer quite a bit. It’s clean and simple for a French supermarket Belgian, lacks the nail varnish phenolics that some have, whilst still retaining a pleasant degree of alcohol and spice. It’s highly carbonated but with tiny bubbles, and great head retention.

Boks 0,5l fra Spar-butikk, Nice. Drukket 12 Okt 12. Delt med blomsterpotta. Lys gylden med et ok tett skum som varer noen minutter. Legger seg lagvis på glasset. Søt, fruktig aroma med litt malt. Smaken er mørk frukt. Lite annet. Veldig søtt helhetsinntrykk.

500ml can from Casino in Marseille. Typical French supermarket "abbey" beer - a strong lager with flavourings to make it appear perfumed like a Leffe blonde. They all tend to taste the same - though it might be interesting to do a group tasting one day. Quite drinkable, and usually very cheap.
