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.

33cl Bottle: BBD Feb 2018. Shared with minutemat on a bus very late on 24th Aug 2014, just what we needed (not) after a long day at a tasting and just before we fell asleep. Slight haze to the light yellow pour, a white topping sat above the liquid, Mat got most of the sediment as I had the first half out the bottle. The aroma was yeasty and semi-sweet with a mini-citrus sourness in the background: the taste very similar with a sweet and sour blending of yeasty flavours. Nice balance with a hop bitter finish, easy to drink. A fitting end to a great day of tasting.

A surprise 330ml bottle shared with Blackhaddock on a train replacement bus, following the inaugural Midlands Bottle Share, Aug 14. I was perhaps a little tipsy by this point so my notes are a little brief. But this was a very pleasant blonde, a touch sweet with light yeast and bitter spice.

Drake (9939) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Draft at Churchkey, 7/12/14. Pours a hazy pale golden color with a thin frothy off-white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of pale buttery malts, yeast, peanut butter, mild spice. The taste is yeast, herbal hops, pale malt. Medium bodied.

Travlr (14463) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 22, 2014
A very nice dry, hoppy bitter beer with a surprisingly smoky finish - not unlike a rauchbier. Well worth seeking out.

VincentKabel (258) - Haarlem, NETHERLANDS - AUG 10, 2014
Decent Blond beer. Nice malty flavour with a slight hop twist that makes this blond stand out (just a little bit). Not one i would order a second time, but decent enough to earn a good score form me.

Alengrin (2813) - BELGIUM - JUL 30, 2014
One of those old-fashioned blonde bitters from before IPA’s became popular in Belgium; in existence since 1987 and something of a classic as far as I am concerned. Creamy, thick white head, colour misty golden blonde. Hoppy nose with grapefruit, green apple, honey and caramel, taste gently fruity and sweetishly malty, increasingly hoppy towards the finish and ending in a long and dry, aromatic hop bitterness.

Bamsen78 (3748) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2014
Bottle @ Restobières, Brussels. Pours hazy amber with airy off-white head. Clear aroma of malt, fruit and yeast, with notes of hops. Sweetish, malty and fruity flavour, with bitter, hoppy notes ans touches of citrus. Estery aftertaste with bitter notes. Lively carbonation. Decent.
