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.

Maakun (6939) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 2, 2018
Bottle massive thanks to sjogro! Almost clear golden with short lasting white head. Sweet malts, quite flowery, there’s also quite some herbs, grass, bitter hay, soft orange, honey, light cardboard, soft yeast, burnt sugar. Medium sweet and over medium bitter. Medium bodied. Not too bad, quite bitter and less yeasty than I expected. Would be nice to have this at a concert or something.

Bottle from Brewers Haven. This one's been on my list for a while. Pretty dark for a "blonde". Orange amber with high fluffy head. Aroma is caramel malts and a tough of Belgian yeast. Yeast becomes more prominent in the taste, and then some sweetness from the malts, caramel. Finishes a bit weak, but enough other good characteristics carry it through.

RudiGR (136) - Dendermonde, BELGIUM - NOV 20, 2017
Gekocht in de Prik en Tik te Arendonk op 27/03/2015. Bink blond is een goudkleurig biertje dat wazig wordt als je de gist onderaan ook in je glas giet (zoals ik). Het schuim is wat gebroken wit-achtig en komt in een normale hoeveelheid, het zijn wel grove bellen die snel neerslaan. Normaal wandklevend. Weinig CO2 verzadiging met fijne belletjes. In het aroma heeft Bink blond een zeer sterke fruitige geur, iets van exotisch fruit zoals abrikoos, perzik en passievrucht. Het aroma heeft ook iets stroperigs in de neus. De smaak is zeer bitter en je lijkt er ook alcohol in te ontdekken (van het zeer fruitige aroma waarschijnlijk) . In de mond geeft Bink blond een medium volmondigheid, is hij bitterdroog, normaal wat koolzuurgas betreft maar ik vind hem toch onevenwichtig, eerst sterk exotisch fruit en dan ineens het bittere in de smaak. De nasmaak vloeit lang uit en is ook tamelijk bitter. Het bittere overheerst in de smaak, als dit geen probleem is dan is Bink blond een prima doordrinker.

Aroma is slightly yeasty alcoholic with some fruity esters. Taste is full bodied sugary doughy toast. Spices in the finish. A bit alcoholic. Apart from that nice

Mortlach (2536) - Rome, ITALY - SEP 24, 2017
On tap Brasserie 4:20 (Rome). Oro luccicante, abbastanza limpida, schiuma bianca media e persistente. Al naso sentori di malto, esteri (frutta gialla), erba tagliata, frutta matura. In bocca è dolce all'attacco con finale amaro a bilanciare, discretamente secca. Corpo medio, carbonazione media. Buona.

ciocanelu (3193) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - AUG 1, 2017
Clear golden color with fluffy off-white head. Aroma is a combination of bready malt, candi sugar and some yeast esters. Taste follows with a light sugary sweetness, grainy/bready malts and some earthy yeast notes with a good amount of bitterness. Light body, really dry, well carbonated but feels somehow smooth on the palate at first. Overall this is a really decent and easy drinking beer.

3.5
dcmchew (104) - Bucharest, ROMANIA - JUN 28, 2017
Quite clear, deep orange, shiny, with a small foamy off-white cap. Aroma has sweet fruity malts, some faint phenols, mild crushed peppercorn, sharp floral notes, thickened honey. Sweet taste with some raw grain and some strong grassy notes, with a sprinkle of earthy, peppery spices. Slightly saison-ish, in a way. Some Belgian sugars in the finish, more than mild bitterness. Aftertaste is spicy and bitter-sweet, but in a "raw", simple way: sugars and earthy hop. Medium to light body, as is the carbonation. A nice Belgian pale with a bit of funk to it.
