This beer isn't that popular in Belgium, you'll find it in some bars but rarely see people drinking it. I've tried the blonde Ciney before, but never the brown one.
As you can see on the picture, the weather was overcast all day. Nothing better to do than drink a tasty brown Ciney, besides finishing some work of course. I'm a bit glad that the extremely hot weather is over for a while, now I can finally enjoy a heavier beer again.
As you can see on the label, this beer is a bit heavy at 7° ABV, but it really goes down very smoothly. The flavours are fairly straightforward, you have some sweetness mixed with little hints of dried fruit and malts. This is a great beer for people who don't have much experience with craft beer.
It really does have a nice colour as well, when you hold it against the light you see that it has a nice red-ish colour. I mean, looks are also part of the taste, so you can understand that I was pretty eager to have a taste of this.
If you're ever able to try this, I can wholeheartedly recommend you do!
