Bottle from Carrefour Express, near Place Rogier, Brussels. Perfectly fine blonde Belgian. Most special, but fine. I like the Ciney branding, although they have recently revamped it to make it slightly worse.

northropfrye (2972) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 11, 2015
Thanks slovaksniper for this extra. Light clear golden body, white head, some lacing. Sweet grainy aroma, maybe a touch of vanilla. Taste is sweet grains again, maybe some apple. Too much like a sweet pale lager. But not bad.

Ysok02 (623) - MOns, BELGIUM - SEP 22, 2015
Robe blonde, mousse peu abondante. Nez fruité, épicé, malté et légèrement houblonné. Bouche à l’attaque ample, mais manquant un peu de fruit et de corps, finale épicée, ronde. Une blonde agréable, sans plus.

nathanvc (121) - Brugge, BELGIUM - SEP 19, 2015
Pours golden and clear blonde with a rocky head that doesn’t last. Fruity aromas of citrus, herbs and hay. It tastes light sweet with a long finish, not too bitter. The body is medium and the carbonation average. A decent ale.

Pours a blonde colour. Taste is candy like with some liqourice and a medicinal aftertaste
