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.

This bottled brew marked BBF 06/06 lot BDE poured a small sized head of finely sized mostly lasting light brown colored bubbles that left behind a fair lacing. The body contained no visible carbonation, was hazy and brown with a pink hue in color. Its aroma contained notes of mild vinous rose some yeasty esthers. Its mouth feel is initially tingly smooth with a lingering tingly palate and a smooth aftertaste. Its flavor contained mild floral malt with a strange musty hard to describe note notes. .

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - DEC 20, 2005
Thanks to DenverLogan for sharing this: Pours a very murky brownish red color, no head. Aroma is musty, pear juice, sweet farmhouse funk, a little brown sugar. Flavor is very dry, is water on the palate, honey, pear/fruit syrup, like what those plastic/metal fruitcups come in. more pear, and a dry finish.

Lubiere (12702) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 18, 2005
Hazy reddish brown ale with a thick light moka head. Sweet brown sugar in aroma with notes of milk choclate. Very sweet malt with light hops, fainlty bitter but surprising mix of vanilla and strawberry. Light roasted notes in final. Well balanced between hops and malts. On tap at Bier Circus, May 2005.

Murky reddish brown, thin, bubbly mocha head. Nose brown sugar, cream, fruity. Flavor is yeasty, floral, with some sugariness. Light spiciness with mild chocolate. Will admit I was expecting little from Bink, but this is rather nice.

luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 21, 2005
This beer was a murky medium brown with a small, fizzy white head. Aromas included moderate malty notes of caramel and hoppy esters of sour apple, flowers, cherries, honey and a light note of sherry. The flavor was lightly bitter with an average-length moderately bitter finish.The carbonation was lively and the body was light and easy-drinking.

Oakes (15294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 11, 2005
Cloudy medium brown with a fairly rich head. Mild chocolate, rose petals, wildflower honey, dates and moon cake in the aroma. Sweet palate with a hint of acidity in the back to cut through and keep it lively. Flavours are subdued relative to the aroma, but still with the date-like, chocolate-accented malts. Well-structured, fairly easy drinking beer.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 27, 2005
Floral, musty, honey aroma with some fruitiness and doughy yeast also notable. Opaque deep brown body is topped by very fine-bubbled, tan head that recedes slowly to ring. Floral honey and fruit flavours are nicely balanced by a light bitterness. Fairly dry medium body - though there is some lasting sweetness on the tongue it never seems cloying. Lively carbonation. Tulip glass. Allowed to warm from fridge temp. Bottle (BB 6/06, Half Time, Mar-05).
