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.

Wonderful spicy, yeasty, and hoppy nose. The head and lace are classic Belgian meringue. The palate is medium in body with a refreshing carbonation. The beer is mostly spicy with a nice dry finish. This is a good example of a Belgian quaffer.

This was a kind of unique tasting blonde in the sense that is had some sweetness and alot of sassy spice. The sugar bites you, with the candi sugars in the way that a starbusrt tingles your tongue. The rest is biscuity, with lots of nice yeasty flavors, with some light fruits and some bananas. Different.

jde123 (761) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 21, 2004
This one pours at a nice pace and ends up as a gelatinous ruby colored body with a creamy white lasting head that leaves nice lace on the glass. Kind of cloudy, hazy, nice. Very heavy yeast aroma like bread ready to turn. Light almost airy mouthfeel, like a memory of something better. A sour banana flavor, nothing to write home about. Indifference overall...

DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 21, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2005 the slightest sour banana & musty yeasty aroma comes from this hazy yellow monster which was topped off by a nice head...and if you concentrate hard enough, you may be able to notice some hop aromas too..yeasty, chewy banana flavors with a touch of sourness. enjoyable, but light.

dirkbreedveld (287) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 19, 2004
cloudy beer with golden yellow tones as a drauhgt beer with good foamy head. Very malty blond beer, a little bit thin, to my opinion, but it will be a good thirst quenscher in summertimes.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - JAN 17, 2004
Not particularly blond, more orange. Spicy, some yeastiness, but had a harsh, unpleasant finish. Thin. Yeast disappears so that there's just a surprisingly alcoholic burn. Kind of tastes like somebody took a leak in a glass of Maudite.

diabel (1590) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - JAN 1, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2006 Bottle Hazy, orange body. Off-white head. Aroma of flowers, hops, ... Moderately bitter flavour, somewhat sweet. Not too bad. I think I could drink this for an entire evening at the pub.

bierkoning (9835) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - NOV 20, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2006 Orange color, frothy head. Honey flowery aroma. Bitter flavor. Yeasty, hops and a bit of citrus. Prickly mouthfeel. The yeastiness is too much prominent. The beer is OK, but not well balanced. Tap: café Morshuis Albergen. Hoppy, flowery aroma. Raw hoppy, earthy flavor. Touch of cherry-like fruit. Long hopbitter aftertaste.

Bottle. Hazy golden peach color with a large foamy white head. A strong citrus (grapefruit, orange) aroma. A light minty fruit flavor with a little spice at the finish. Yeasty, spritzy, and fairly light on the palate.
