After the blond and brown version, the brewery made a third type of beer: the 'Bloesem Bink' (Blossom Bink). It’s a beer of high fermentation, unfiltered and not pasteurized, with secundary fermentation in the bottle. We brew this seasonal beer every year in the same period (spring-summer). The ingredients are: five types of malt, one belgian type of hop, brewing liquor, yeast, honey from Sint-Truiden and syrup of pears from Vrolingen. It tastes fruity with a lightly sweet character and a long fruity and bitter aftertaste. The alcohol content of this springbeer is 7,1% vol.alc.

Second in Bink tasting series. Pretty ruby-brown color. Sweetish and a bit too syrupy for me.

330ml Bottle - Copper with a slight haze. Raisins, honey and pear in the aroma. Fruity and moderately sweet taste with notes of pear, honey, raisins and caramel. Hides the alcohol quite well.

Shark_Pants (504) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 18, 2014
Deep cloudy brown with creamy tan head. Strong pear notes in the aroma, honey, floral notes, belgian yeast and a little acetone. The taste is caramel, honey, stewed pear, dark rye bread, also with a little unpleasant acetone which detracts from the dry finish. Light-med bodied but still sticky. Not bad but could really do without the chemical nail polish remover in yhe aroma and finish.

seynie (275) - Tienen, BELGIUM - NOV 6, 2014
Cloudy brown amber with quickly fading head. Roasted malts, sweet syrup, some earth. Medium body but long finish. Creamy sweetness, on the verge of sticky

PsychoGunnar (200) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 11, 2014
Very malt-sweet schwarz-like beer with a clearly high alcohol content. The bi-taste of fruit is not very successful in my book.
