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.

Bottle at taverne De Klee in Kuttekoven. Was in the neighbourhood so I decided to taste one of the local brews. It was too early to watch the trees blossom so I was hoping this blossom beer would bring some sunshine on this cloudy day. The beer is dark amber with a thin head. The head disappears very quickly. Aroma is not very special, some honey and sugar. Taste... Not very special. Rather neutral and pretty sweet, you can taste the syrup, but it is not fruit beer sweet. I can enjoy this on a sunny day, but there are far better alternatives.

Sweet. Weak. Really not what Iíve come to expect from Belgium. There was so little flavor in the bottle I had that I couldnít really describe the taste as well as the aftertaste (the latter of which existed). Maybe it was a bad bottle, but I donít really feel inclined to try another at this point.

amber/rood, troebel met minimale witte kraag allereerst komen het heerlijke honing aroma binnen tezamen met mooie florale tonen. De smaken zijn redelijk honing zoet, lekkere fruitigheid van oa peer, rozijn, verder floraal, zacht, zoet en alcoholisch. medium body, glad in de mond, normale co2. Smaken zijn erg goed, heeft qua smaakbeleving wel iets weg van een barley wine (honing), lekker spul

Bière douce, d'une belle couleur ambrée. L'alcool est peu présent, pas d'amertume. Notes de bergamote, d'agrume confis.

Bardzo dobre i smaczne piwo. O czerwono rubinowym zabarwieniu. Głebia posmaku miodu i slodyczy jest tu swietnie wyeksponowana. Daje sie to wyczuc z kazdym lykiem. Zarowno w smakuiana moze nie za wielka co moze dziwic w przypadku belgijskiego piwa ale jednak jest. Bielusienka jak snieg. Polecam na zimowe chlodne wieczory, choc to piwo jest sezonowe, na lato. Ale alkohol ukryty pierwszorzednie

JBPortland (1095) - Portland, Maine, USA - SEP 24, 2013
From 9/24 notes. 12oz bottle pours deep chesnut brown into tulip with 2 finger head. Nose is pear, fig, applesauce, fruit juice. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied, a little syrupy. Taste is dark fruits, bready, tobacco, belgian yeast, earthy, maple notes, cereal notes. Finish is pear, little honey notes, fruit, lingers. Pear and honey are there but donít really shine. Decent.

Weird beer, perhaps best described as a Belgian blond with flowers. Tastes slightly sweet, with some herbs, grass and honey.
