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.

Cloudy orange color, small head, fizzy carbonation. Weak yeast nose. Bitter and peppery. Thin body. Not thrilling.

Pours a hazy gold colour with some suspended yeast particles. Aroma is malt and bananas. Medium bodied with taste of malt and spices. Slight hop bitterness at the finish

33cl BBD 12/06 Pours dull gold with rocky white head, steady bead. Smells perfumey, fruity...bananas, strawberries, nice mellow nose. Rather full in the mouth, but flavor profile is "light"...not a heavy beer, but good body. Pleasant esters from the yeast dominate the flavor as it flows towards a spicy hop bitter finish. A light, hoppy pale ale with just a hint of carmelly maltiness. I wouldn’t mind more of that aspect, but it is still very nice. Flavors linger on in the mouth giving me a thought of farmhouses as it fades away.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 18, 2004
Appearance: purely peachy color, with a mass of swirling floaties about, and a nice, white head that settles quickly. Aroma: citrus and yeast, bright and bready, with little hints of spice. Taste: bold, fruity flavor explodes in the mouth, juicy, spicy, very refreshing. Hops are here, and play amiably among the palate, malt is doing it’s bit just fine. The fruit returns again and again, and rest happily in the mouth. Light body, nice, tasty finish. Yum, very nice.

sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 5, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2007 (Bottled) Hazy golden with a large, foamy head. Sourish, honey-malty aroma. Sour-malty, sharply dry-hoppy flavor with a dry finish. Not much yeast, and not much changes with it. Medium-bodied with smooth carbonation. A quite sour and dull blonde. Not very refreshing despite the dry hoppiness, and not really a beer for me. (Bottled, BBE 06/2006, was 6-4-7-4-14=3.5) Hazy orange color with small, floating yeast particles and a small head. Quite yeasty and fruity, slightly sweet aroma. Fruity and dry, yeasty and hoppy flavor. Medium-bodied, dry and bitter palate. Very nice and refreshing, dry and hoppy blonde.

I had two bottles of this beer together; the head was incredibly thick and long lasting. The smell was sweet and full. The taste is full and complex ranging from fruits to spices.

Rastacouere (6137) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 20, 2004
Bottle at spuyten. Golden hue, hazy, small white head. Sweet aroma, sugary in fact, very malty, but where I’d expect nice fruity flavors, it’s mostly straight candi sugar and spices. Lime, mint and grassy flavors. Bready yeast, zesty palate overall. A bit overcarbonated. I’m a bit let down..

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2004
Bottle conditioned from The Wine Company, Slough, Berkshire. Poured first completely bright, and then with the yeast. Golden colour, white head. Orval like dry hoppiness, spicyness. Actually this is very much like Orval, which isn't really a good thing.

obisbeer (565) - Barcelona, SPAIN - JUL 15, 2004
Bright orange with fine bubbles, clear with little or no head. Sweet malt nose, orange marmalade? marshmallow, peach, and subtle spice. Dry hop, medium weight, almost an IPA with dry finish, faint orange notes but nose and palate seem far apart.

Ernest (6354) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 4, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2006 Head is initially mostly diminishing. Body is hazy medium yellow, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (herbs), moderately yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of clove and coriander. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. A bit ho-hum.
