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.

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.

Bottle. Pale gold. Hoppy (spicy, peppery, resiny hops). Fruity (oranges, apples). Yeasty (lots of floaties). Malty base (light caramel). Nice hop bitterness. Refreshing drying finish. Likeable hoppy pale ale. (2008)

corkyrory66 (2000) - BELGIUM - JAN 31, 2017
Blonde de 5,5 % abv, avec 2 malts et 2 houblons belges. Couleur doré soutenu (environ 15 ebc), à la clarté nette. Bulles fines partout, bien vives. Mousse blanche soyeuse, stable à 1 mm. Arômes de malt clair, fruits blancs, girofle, pointe de noisettes. 1ère bouche souple à l’entame basique malt/houblon. Arrière-bouche pas très définie, amertume assez vague. 2ème bouche très faible, vague. Arrière-bouche sans définition, quelques fruits blanches. 3ème à la texture jolie, mais l’ensemble est peu harmonieux. Arrière-bouche sans ligne directrice. Longueur un peu plus intégrée, mais l’ensemble est faible, malt pils. Jambes fines, longues. Levure faible. Alcool inopérant sur l’ensemble. Finale linéaire. CONCLUSION : le genre de blonde qui n’a pas grand-chose à dire .. bink !

Bouteille 33. Belle blonde quasi limpide à mousse blanche persistant jusqu’à la fin de le dégustation. Nez plutôt discret sur l’orange et le floral. Bouche astringente, maltée, amère (mais un "amer dur") avec des notes épicées diverses. Bof

On cask at Holy Grale. Pours a hazy gold with large frothy white head that lasts. The aroma is belgian yeast, grass, floral. Medium body, grass, honey, yeast, light dry finish, good.

seynie (408) - Tienen, BELGIUM - JUL 21, 2016
Clear gold with a fizzing head. More substance than the typical lager, more towards saison. Crisp bitterness, some white sugar, a hint of lemon in the finish, earth. Medium finish, bitter sweet. Refreshing

Flaska t’brugs beertje, brygge. Orangegul kulör. Stallig doft med äpplemos och örter. En ganska jordig smak med koriander, jäst och hö.

TheKernOwl (214) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2016
Thought this was my favourite blond when I tried in a few years ago; now I know it is. Coriander-y? Nice yeast, and lemon-y, nose. Orange rind in the mouth. Not the longest finish but really nice depth to it.
