I went to Toulon back in 2010 and 2014 and am trying to track down the name of the popular beer sold there in the bars. I think it was Belgian. Any help would be fantastic. 
Thanks. 
For the losers now, will be later to win.

My guess is that you are referring to a lager, which I don't care for (except, possibly, on a hot summer's day) - there are many, with Stella being one of the better known. Maybe it was Leffe, which although originally a Trappist beer, is now produced and distributed by huge corporations - it's better than your bog standard beers, no question, but not in the same class as beers produced by some other monasteries on a much smaller scale. They do produce a range - dark beers as well as lager.

If I was you, I'd try some of the excellent Trappist bottled beers from Belgium, which have far more flavour - Chimay (Blue label is my favourite - a dark, strong ale which is bottle fermented). They also produce a slightly weaker version (Red label). Rochefort and Westmalle are two others. Orval specialises in  a very unusual pale beer.
I share no-one's ideas. I have my own.

Good beers those monks made but pretty strong.

Drinking smaller amounts of good quality beers is better for your health than drinking gallons of cat pee - IMO, of course
