Belgian Beer no.19: Ciney, dark and blonde

It’s been a busy couple of days beer wise. We discovered new beer bars in Brussels, and tried out plenty of beer. Some really stuck with me, others were part of the Belgian discovery tour. Part of the beers tried was also Ciney. Produced by Alken-Maes, like Mort Subite and the Hapkin, Ciney goes back to 1978 (that’s one year after I was born – pure trivia for you). There is a blonde and a dark Ciney. While in the A la Mort Subite we tried the dark Ciney. It is a brown beer, with subtle red hues, and a mild aftertaste. 7% alcohol.
No recipe.
