AndersR (195) - Århus, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2004
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.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - JUL 28, 2004
(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.

JorisPPattyn (7912) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 12, 2004
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.

larsniclas (5613) - Billdal, SWEDEN - JUN 5, 2004
Bottled. Deep golden. Yeasty and herby aroma. A mild and somewhat malty flavour. A bit thin.

rlgk (10534) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - MAY 31, 2004
Golden, small white head. Aroma is yeasty and brings citrus and a few other fruits. Flavor is yeasty and malty and it has a mild finish.

jfm (1724) - Holbæk, DENMARK - APR 11, 2004
Blond color with a white head. The taste is sweet with a light maltiness and a slight bitter sharpness.

chriso (7365) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2004
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.

Nate (3727) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 25, 2004
Sweet & citrusy. Yeasty & hay. Sour cherry hops. Sugar. Golden amber clear with light lacing white head. Medium body & light carb. Feathery. Papery & bit of metal. Light sweetness, sugar & citrus. Hops gives bitter end. Kind of watery but pleasant.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - DEC 12, 2003
Golden colur w. small head. Sweet aroma and taste (some apricot or peach ?), little alcohol. Soft palate. Pleasent.
