COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
After the blond and brown version, the brewery made a third type of beer: the 'Bloesem Bink' (Blossom Bink). It’s 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.

Very smooth and easygoing beer. Floral, sweet malt, honey, pear. Body is very creamy & smooth. Syrupy and a little sticky. I kinda like this beer ;)

mansquito (6902) - Nueva York, New York, USA - NOV 19, 2017
Haymaker, Manhattan tap: pours pinkish amber with a whitish head. Aroma is fruity and honey. Taste is sweet and sort of juicy, but kind of more malty. Meh.

Jabic (702) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - SEP 23, 2017
Ar: Paint thinner, lots of chemical. Ap: Murky amber-brown; small light tan head with low retention, leaving a shoreline of big-bubbled foam and a very fine nebulous heaze. T: Spicy pear, lots of white pepper and cinnamon; very light sweetness; hops are mossy and zesty; medium-high bitterness; almost a chili-pepper heat; raisins; some toast malt and a hint of nougat; finish is white pepper and peach skins. P: Medium body with high carbonation; finish is dry. O: A nice-tasting beer even if it looks pretty ugly in the glass and has a bit of an off-putting nose; nice mixture of toast, fruits, and spice.

ciocanelu (2947) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - SEP 5, 2017
Amber color with beige head. Aroma has toasted malt, burnt sugar, brandy, raisins and some other dried fruits. Taste starts with burnt sugar, toasted malt, yeast notes, some ethanol, generic fermented fruit notes and a light earthy bitterness on the finish. Medium body and carbonation. The aroma is quite interesting but the taste has a lot of competing flavors which don't combine well.

3.3
culchiem (4155) - Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 30, 2017
Draught in Moeder Lambic. Mahogany with a short head.. aroma of biscuit malt. Flavour is dark fruit malt, sweet with a hint of warm booze, tastes a bit bock like.

nathanvc (708) - Brugge, BELGIUM - MAR 15, 2017
Pours hazy amber/orange with a small, frothy, off-white head. The aroma contains malt, hops, (pear) syrup, flowers and honey. It tastes medium sweet and very light bitter. Quite watery in texture, medium to light body, soft carbonation. A modest beer.

3.1
Ysok02 (1827) - Mons, BELGIUM - JAN 24, 2017
Robe brune, fine mousse, peu persistante. Nez sur la prune, le miel, le malt, peu complexe. Bouche à l’attaque assez simple, fraîche, bulle fine, moyennement longue mais manquant de complexité. Une bière curieuse. difficile à analyser.

3.9
Gurthnar (6197) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - NOV 6, 2016
Tap at Delirium Cafe. Very strong fruitiness in this one. Relatively well attenuated, but still leaving a moderate body. Drinks well. Good one.
