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.

Beautiful belgian blond ale. Golden in colour with a beigish head. Beautiful fruity aroma and corriander notes. Beautiful balanced fruity flavour and again corriander and some curacao come through. Reminds me of Unibroue's Don De Dieu. Great head retention.

A slightly unclear orange beer with a small but fast disappearing head. The aroma is fresh and powerful with notes of sweetness, alcohol, and fruit. The flavor is lovely, containing notes of alcohol, maltsweetness, and ending on a slight bitterness. A beer with a great balance.
