COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

A hazy dark amber beer with a thin light brown head. The aroma is complex with notes of alcohol, prunes, malt, fruit, and caramel. The flavor is sweet and with strong notes of over ripe fruit combined with a light dustyness, leading to a dry very fruity end. The sweetness is a bit cloying.

Bottled. Hazy reddish brown colour, not much head. Aroma is sour fruit and slight roasted malts. Flavour is hops, malts and quite earthy. Some strange sweetness also present. Not too pleasant, but managed to hide the alcohol well.

Early amateur rating warning! Sharp and tangy beer, somewhat cider like. A bit too sharp for me!
