After the blond and brown version, the brewery made a third type of beer: the 'Bloesem Bink' (Blossom Bink). Its a beer of high fermentation, unfiltered and not pasteurized, with secundary fermentation in the bottle. We brew this seasonal beer every year in the same period (spring-summer). The ingredients are: five types of malt, one belgian type of hop, brewing liquor, yeast, honey from Sint-Truiden and syrup of pears from Vrolingen. It tastes fruity with a lightly sweet character and a long fruity and bitter aftertaste. The alcohol content of this springbeer is 7,1% vol.alc.

Ungstrup (35904) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 12, 2006
A hazy dark amber beer with a thin light brown head. The aroma is complex with notes of alcohol, prunes, malt, fruit, and caramel. The flavor is sweet and with strong notes of over ripe fruit combined with a light dustyness, leading to a dry very fruity end. The sweetness is a bit cloying.

HogTownHarry (6381) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAR 4, 2006
Bottle (330ml). Poured deep hazy reddish-brown with a good sized creamy -rocky beige lasting head; little puddle of black sediment at bottom of the bottle. Sweet and appealing aroma of yeasty, spicy, brown sugary malt, lightly fruity and alcoholic. Flavour is a little light, but its a syrupy, fruity, malty, spicy blend - long finish with bitter notes, but mostly malt, honey and fruit, more alcohol bitterness emerges on warming. Solid body, syrupy, a mostly still mouthfeel - very very nice - wish I could get this regularly. My wife loved it too.

RooftopRogue (423) - Champaign, Illinois, USA - MAR 4, 2006
The aroma is an infusion of wheat, grapes, and dates. This beer fills the glass with a dark copper colored sediment filled solution that resides under a decent sized off-white head. This beer is somewhat thick and produces a mild wheat taste that is more identifiable in the aftertaste than when the fluid is in the mouth.

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 17, 2006
Pours a lovely copper/ruby amber hue. Small beige-ish head, leaves substantial lacing. Pear nectar, honey, dark fruit, faintly cocoa, sweet aroma. Palate is sweet, honey, dates, cocoa, pleasant mouthfeel and texture. Finishes dry, with crisp bitterness, and fruity estery alcohol. Not too bad at all.

Ernest (7518) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 13, 2006
Head is mostly diminishing. Body is dark amber. Aroma is moderately malty (cookie, caramel), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with a note of sherry. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Have had multiple samples over the years and never liked it...finally rated it as such. Not much honey (unless its oxidized honey, ha ha) in the nose, pretty bland and on the sour side in the mouth. Assuredly fresh bottle.

This bottled brew marked BBF 06/06 lot BDE poured a small sized head of finely sized mostly lasting light brown colored bubbles that left behind a fair lacing. The body contained no visible carbonation, was hazy and brown with a pink hue in color. Its aroma contained notes of mild vinous rose some yeasty esthers. Its mouth feel is initially tingly smooth with a lingering tingly palate and a smooth aftertaste. Its flavor contained mild floral malt with a strange musty hard to describe note notes. .
