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.

Deep red color, tan head but it had a pinkish tint to it. Aroma of sweet malt a bit of yeast. In the flavor the honey comes through a bit more, fruity, pleasant. Medium bodied, very drinkable. Nice beer.

hotstuff (4403) - Indiana, USA - APR 19, 2005
Bottle marked best before 6/06. Poured a small tan head that mostly diminished, fine-large sized bubbles, sparse lacing, minimal carbonation, transparent, and an orange brown hue. Sweet, malty, fruity, and honey aroma. Flavor was sweet, malty, vinuous, light honey, and lightly bitter. Palate was smooth. Medium body.

ElJefe (553) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 3, 2005
Hazy brown with a creamy tan head. Sweet pear, yeast, and spice on the nose. Flavor is full of sweet pear and spiciness, with a honey smoothness. A different take on a classic style. I enjoyed it.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAR 30, 2005
This pours a murky, reddish-brown with a rapidly vanishing head. The aroma is sweet and doughy with light fruits and a touch of honey. Medium-bodied but surprizingly robust, the aroma carries into the flavor with a touch of hop bitterness added. The finish is a sticky sweet honey one.

humulus (339) - Salem, Missouri, USA - MAR 1, 2005
A raw pumpkin flavor. Aroma is light and butterscotchy. Flavor is malty and floral with a nice light hop spice. Copper-red with nice medium "to the edge" froth. Almost a flat cola flavor or artificial caramel. Overall, very pleasant. I could drink a tall glass of this.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - FEB 28, 2005

Silphium (3188) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 14, 2005
Cloudy orange-brown body, medium creamy cream-colored head. Chocolatey aroma with caramels and a touch of plum in addition to grapes and breads. Very bready, caramely body with plum and vinous notes, getting sweet and almost syrupy at the finish with a touch of honey. Not a bad beer.

TheBeerGod (5570) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - FEB 12, 2005
Bottle. Clouded ruby body. Small tannish halo around the edge of the glass. Aroma is big honey, fruit, malt and hints of sugar. Taste starts off slightly yeasty with light bitterness and develops into sweetened fruit notes, light honey and creamy malt. Light flower notes as well. The body is relatively smooth back has a moderate carbonation feel to it. Finish seems like slightly bitter fruit, light yeast notes, mild malt and floral hops. Not bad at all!

11.2 oz bottle (best by June 2006): Huge bubbly tan head, displays a decent waterfall character – slowly diminishing…hazed ruby bronze. The thick bubbly head pops with pineapple, plum & grassy malt aromatics. Smooth, velvety palate delivers a warming alcohol and a wonderfully malt complexity. Rich, peppery elements live deep beneath the covers of this one. Long finish is filled with slightly dry yeast and adds a depth that makes this one pretty enjoyable. A little less fruited malt on the tongue would have helped the peppery yeast character move more towards the forefront, which I would have enjoyed, but this was nice.
