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.

tiggmtl (4545) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 2, 2005
Sweet vinous and grapey aroma. Opaque yellow-tan with very slight ring of white head. Peach, apricot, grape and mango fruity esters with mild herbal hop flavour and a slight bitterness. Medium-light body is malty but very dry with very low carbonation. Despite some obvious flaws, I really enjoyed this beer, so perhaps one day, I’ll get a better bottle. Bottle sampled with MartinT, muzzlehatch and Rastacouere at Anam Cara in Boston.

thedm (5163) - 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.

bu11zeye (12314) - 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.

TBone (14267) - Pori, FINLAND - JAN 19, 2005
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 (5223) - 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 (2641) - 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.
