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.

This blond pours a nice dark golden cloudy color. The aroma is of coriander and other fresh spices. The flavor is a little muted, and belies the strong appearance. Drinking this reminds me of a poor man's Dogwood Summer at a rich man's the price. Glad I tried it, but i’ll be my last bottle.

maeib (8598) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2004
Bottle at Evening Star Brighton. A spicy Duvel-like aroma. A hazy amber colour with less head than expected. The taste is spicy and medicinal with sweetness. A very tasty beer.

Minty-fresh yeast growing in a pine hop forest...Orange zest bark and plentiful wood chips on the ground...A beautifully tasty blond ale, with very well-blended flavors, a fluffy yet thick body and potent hop bitterness...

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 3, 2004
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.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - MAR 24, 2004
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 (763) - 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 (288) - 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.
