3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Purchased at Le Petit Vaudree. Amber blond with a medium white head. Nose is candy sugar, fruit, sweet malts, faint honey and light spice. Light floral aroma as well. Taste is flowery and spicy with a candy sugar and sweet malt blend to it. Body is almost overcarbonated and has a strong spice bite to it. Finish is more light bitterness along with spice and a flowery yeasty combo with minimal sweetness.

Clear and golden in color ( ... it’s a blond ... ) It’s sweet, but not so much that my teeth hurt. Some spice. Overall, decent.

Nice clear golden color. Small head that holds some time. Yeasty fruity sweet nose. More wheaty sweetness in flavor acompagnied by some acidic notes. Spicy finish (coriander) that lingers on quite some time.

(on botle) It almost looks like a pilsner, but is, in my book, a very good blond. The nose son hits you with lots of whteayeast and alcohol. And the alcohol is very dominant throughout the experience. Loads of of varm, soft malt in the mouth and a varming finish, again with the alcohol going to your toes.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear golden beer; virtually no head, some lace only. Caramel, roasted, laurel in the nose. Oppressive alcoholic-caramel taste, quite dry, white candi sugar. Dry, alcoholburn, thinnish. Horrible mass-produced stronger ale. The individual notes seem OK, but the total is way below average.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A Leffe Blond look-alike from the Alken-Maes stable. Leffe is too sweet for me, but the Ciney is even sweeter. Manages to be sickly and thin at the same time. Drinkable, but a bit flabby and unbalanced. Rose Blanche, Grand Place, Brussels, September 2003.
