A beer that I have continually seen throughout Belgium but never been excited enough to try.
Ciney Blonde: 7%abv Suggested serving temperature nice and cold!
Initial look is clear, light-golden yellow. Little head to begin with but a light froth sticks with the beer til the end. Aromas of yeast and sweet malt occur on pouring. A nice carbonation level of soft light bubbles with a slight hopiness. A very crisp beer with light taste and a dry after effect. A beer that you could drink a few of and not think about it as far as I’m concerned. Enjoyable but not overly so. I guess I will have to do as the locals the next time I see a brasserie filled with signs and patio umbrellas advertising this beer; drink it. The best part of the pubs here is that when you order a beer you are served a small-or large, depending on your group size-side of peanuts, crackers or olives-always depending on your beverage type. Also expect to pay upon receiving your drinks, whether at the bar or relaxing outdoors. A beer produced by Demarche Brewery for Alken-Maes Brewing in Waarloos, Belgium-so it still has some small business roots as opposed to the larger companies as InBev and Carlsberg. Give it a go if you have a chance a refreshing brew, to say the least.
