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.

I’m not a big fan of Belgian beers, but this one was drinkable. I will have to drink more Belgians in order to talk about this one in detail...this taste really perplexes me.

HogTownHarry (7084) - Toronto (Harbourfront), CANADA - MAR 4, 2006
Bottle (330ml). Bubbly bright clear light gold with a tinge of red, small diminishing white head - darkens and gets murky as it warms. Smells like a grassy pale lager with some light pungent hops and a hint of yeasty belgian malt - somewhat weak, very dry. Dry grainy taste, moderately hop-bitter with yeast and honey malt notes - thinnish mouthfeel, syrupy and oddly flat - very drinkable, wish it had more malt and yeast character though.

Bart (2936) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 25, 2006
Clear blond colour, rather a lot sprankling, small white head. Malty aroma, little sweet-yeasty and light fruity. Full body, light carbonating. Finish with some alcoholic-bitter hints. Dry near the end.

2.1
NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 8, 2006
Aroma is low key, but mostly just a honey/malt sweet smelling melange. This blonde is light brown in color with a tiny wisp of a white head. Yeasty/wheat-tinged honey dripping fore lacks carbonation to balance the sweetness. FInish is just more of the uninspired honey sweetness. Very boring beer.

hezron (614) - Viroqua, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 25, 2006
Bottle, thanks to a white elephant. Nice aroma with a yeasty character initally but then it changes to some fruit: apple and grape with a bit of caramel and a bit of minerals. Bright orange, brilliant... with a thini white head. Simple, slightly malty flavor with a mild hop flavor that finishes with some minerals. Very light body with a crisp, easy to drink feeling. This must be what they mean by "digestable."

3.4
argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 17, 2006
(33cl botte, best by 6/06) Large off-white head atop a bubbly apple juice body, yeast at the bottom of the bottle. Aroma is moderately sweet, honey, apple, grape, some grain. Taste is medium sweet, herbal, apple/grape, light caramel. Light body, some crispness, nicely drinkable.

3.3
fiulijn (21506) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 11, 2006
Muddy amber color; thin creamy head. Nice aroma, sweet, of malt. Some good malt taste, and a strong bitterness. A pleasant Belgian Ale, straightforward, with an interesting malt and cereals profile.

jackamackson (127) - USA - DEC 31, 2005
light hazy gold pour, with a fine white head. hoppy sweet aroma. tastes kind of like a hopped witbier. spicy, grassy, light, with a good touch of hops to finish. decent but not great.

3.5
caesar (7390) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - DEC 26, 2005
Hazy golden color, medium creamy white head. Aroma is hoppy, bit floral, malty, bit spicy. Slight sweet taste, quite bitter. Creamy texture. Very decent beer, especially for its relatively low ABV.

4.2
Nekronos (4213) - Xalapa, MEXICO - DEC 22, 2005
UPDATED: APR 30, 2006 Nice, this kind of beers are just nice. Very cloudy, but not as much as some other even stronger. But this was nice.
