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.
