After the blond and brown version, the brewery made a third type of beer: the 'Bloesem Bink' (Blossom Bink). Itís 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.

33cl bottle. Brown with small head. Nose : burned caramel, sugar, honey, maple sirup, peers, cooked fruits. Sip : oily with low carbonation. Cloying sweet with strong caramel. Develops fruity and woody aromas. Gets a bit dry and still sweet.

Draft. First fruit/veg beer & very impressed. Dark red/amber complexion, hazy. Aroma notes of carrot, cherries. Same carries over into palate. The 7% alcohol helps carry the underlying sweetness. Very recommended. Can't wait to try more of this style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sweet smell of "perensiroop" with a hint of honey a bit roasty, minimal head. Taste not too sweet, rather malty. Sticky palate. OK beer but not great

Bottle. Orange color. Very fruity, malty, honey on the nose. Taste is honey, malt, little bitter and some fruits. Better than the blond.

Very smooth and easygoing beer. Floral, sweet malt, honey, pear. Body is very creamy & smooth. Syrupy and a little sticky. I kinda like this beer ;)

BarossaLuke (540) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 29, 2013
Amber colour, crystal clear, canít possibly beer bottle fermented with that clarity. Fruity "belgian" type aromas with faint honey but I donít get the pear that much. Was very effervescent and head no head retention at all.

33CL bottle at Home, Brown Reddish colour, small white head, I canít taste honey in it(too bad I like that), this beer once again confirms, beer with fruit in it I like it or I hate it, this one is not one I like.

Zoetig, vooral de perensiroop komt door, honing minder. Het fruitige karakter mis ik compleet, proef zelfs licht ijzer. Plakkerige nasmaak
