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.

thedm (5006) - Fort Wayne, USA - MAR 31, 2005
This bottled brew marked best before 02/06 lot AD poured a small sized frothy head of off-white large sized mostly diminishing bubbles that left behind a hazy yeasty softly carbonated light yellow brown colored body with floaties and a fair lace. It had a yeasty malty aroma with some floral qualities and a tingly mildly hoppy mouth feel that smoothened in the finish with a mild yeast hop aftertaste.

Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2005
Zythos Beer Festival, Sint-Niklaas, Belgium 2005. Cloudy golden colour with a big white head. Light hoppy and malty aroma with some yeast. Harsh herbal taste. Light body and a bitter finish.

bu11zeye (12100) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - FEB 4, 2005
(Bottle) Pours a cloudy golden with an average-sized white head. Aroma of musty leaves and butter. Palate was a little thin, metallic, and somewhat bitter. Quite mediocre.

Bottled (BB 06/2006)
Dark orange, cloudy brownish head. Aromas has malts, hops, leather and yeast. Medium-bodied, lemon flavor with hints of fruityness. Nice hoppy bitter aftertaste. Excellent balanced blond.

Boutip (5025) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 29, 2004
Bottle: Poured an hazy brown color ale with a huge bubbly off-white head with average retention. Aroma is quite malty with some spices also noticeable. Taste is quite malty with some spices and some shy yeast showing up at the end. I guess this is lacking a bit of character and would have appreciated stronger spices with a fuller body.

pivo (2621) - GERMANY - DEC 28, 2004
Slightly sour nose, yeast too but mostly grainy aroma. Orange color with a foamy head. Cereal and grains: oats, for instance. Full body and a quite heavy for a blond. Nice.

Malty, yeasty aroma with spices and some orange. Cloudy, orange coloured with a lasting, thin, white head. Taste is slightly sweet-malty, bit sour, yeasty spicy/pepper, some orange and a hopbitter finish. I like this brew.

YogiBeera (2533) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 8, 2004
Cloudy orange color, small head, fizzy carbonation. Weak yeast nose. Bitter and peppery. Thin body. Not thrilling.

mdi (573) - Nebraska, USA - OCT 30, 2004
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.
