COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The ‘Bink blond’ was the first who came out of the barrels. It’s a beer of high fermentation, unfiltered and not pasteurized, with secundary fermentation in the bottle. This beer with a hoppy character is the perfect thirst-quencher. The ingredients are: two types of malt, two belgian types of hop, brewing liquor and yeast. Our ‘Bink blond’ is a fresh and lightly digestable beer with a hoppy flavour and a bitter aftertaste. The alcohol content of this ‘powerful’ beer is 5,5 % vol.alc.

Golden pour. White head. Lacing. Notes of yeast and hops in the nose. Not bad on a summer day. Taste is crisp hops and malt.

PauloAG (241) - BELGIUM - JUL 17, 2015
330cc bottle. Pours dark blond with thin head. Nice sweet start. Malty, light caramel. Strong yeast flavours like banana, spices. Floral and spicy hops. Finishes quite bitter for the style. It really feels tasty for a low belgian abv. It would fit better in this style a bit more carbonation.

MMR (560) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 20, 2015
A Blonde Beer with a lightly bitter and hoppy aftertaste. I somehow have the feeling it is spiced like the Leffe Blonde (it reminded me of that beer). Very decent beer.

prawlie (1284) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2015
Bottled. Hazy blond. Big yeasty aroma, fruity. Very yeasty, with a good malt hit. Tastes stronger than it is. Tasty stuff, though a touch ’rough’.
