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.

Bottle shared, thanks Jay. QUite honey forward with lingering notes of wild flowers, pear juice, bready mouthfeel, gentle sweet finish. Pretty decent stuff, quite an interesting brew with some local terroir ingredients.

Bottle shared at "Tokyo Ratebeer Dark Tickers of The World Unite or AJB tasting volume 1" event. Thanks Jay! Honey with some floral notes along with brown sugar and bready, raisin bread like malt character. Hides the 7.1 fairly well with average carbonation and a medium body. More honey as it warms. Some apple and pear notes on the palate as well. Sweet, but not cloying. Finish is sweet with some light hop bitterness.
