golden body, long lasting white head, aroma of citrus, apples, and yeast, which transfer into the flavor in that order. sweet finish, but a little bit dry, with just a bit of spices at the very end. a nice blonde.

Pours clear and mid-gold with a big, frothy white head that lasts well and leaves some lacing. Quite a faint yeasty aroma with some hops. Well-rounded taste with bittterness predominating. A little plummy fruit in the background. Not the most complex, but highly recommended.

Thin white head, clear golden body. Yeast and fruit aroma with tones of light spices - nice and fresh. Fresh citrusy and orangy aroma with a good hoppiness and a long peppery finish. A typical, but good blonde.

Draft at pub in Brussels. Beautiful, rich apricot-tangerine color with a large, creamy white head. Very fruity aroma, orange and citrus, some yeastiness evident as well as good spiciness. Flavor is also sweet and fruity, with a distinct breadiness. Full and smooth body, gentle and creamy carbonation. Very enjoyable with dinner.

25 cl Bottle. A clear beer with a tan head. A little spicy yeast aroma, with a sweet nose. An okey blond with a nice strukture, but a little too average.

Bottle. I am very impressed with both the brown and blond Ciney’s. The blonde is a bit more fruity in the nose. The flavor is more of a light citrus tinge with a nice sweet aftertaste similar to other blondes but more complete overall.

Oddly enough I’m getting mango in the nose. The color is golden with a thin white head. The flavor has hints of grape and bitter apple. The mouthfeel is somewhat astringent, and the aftertaste is a little bit bitter. Good but not great.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2006 (Bottle 25 cl) A slightly sour nose, but far from sour in flavour where the sweetish malts dominate. Beautiful golden colour. Long lasting palate. Nice abbey beer. 020893
