COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Created in June 1998, Bush Blond is obviously a discovery in the strong blond ales market in which it will undoubtedly play a major role. It has a light and glistering colour. Hugues Dubuisson who is the current brewer wanted it to be worthy of the famous Bush Amber and gave it the same nice aroma and flavour.

Dorqui (2105) - Brescia, ITALY - OCT 29, 2005
Loaded yellow color, discreetly bubbly and diamond. Light and compact foam, short duration. Rich and complex scent. Much aromatized and flowery. Powerful and decided taste, clear notes of caramel, honey, sugar and daisies. Sweetish, alcoholic and of long duration final.

CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - OCT 10, 2005
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Blond Yellow with creamy head. Aroma of peach, pineapple, pepper, alcohol quite well hidden. Easy drinking for the abv. Medium bodied with a good spicy hop finish. Excellent stuff.

bridge (659) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 7, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 31, 2006 Mine poured cloudy orange brown with lots of floaties and frothy head that laced well. The floaties could be because the beer is a bit past it’s use by date, quite like a couple of De Koninck’s I had a little while ago. The aroma is decidedly fruity: creamy peach and raisins, but also some raw alcohol. The flavour has a good balance, with the leading sweetness finished with some light bitterness. It’s got a medium to full bodied palate, with the alcohol a bit too dominant. Some nice toffee sweetness rounds it off Overall it doesn’t seem as well balanced as the amber, but it’s still pretty good drop.

Bart (2941) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 22, 2005
Average whita and diminishing head, gold-yellow clear body. heavy sweet alcoholic aroma with hops, some herbs. Smouth palate, lively carbonation, good mouthfeel. an alcoholic finish, little bit sweet, and a touch off sourness, which gives it a special touch. Lovely beer

JonMoore (1851) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2005
Bottle. Pale clear golden colour with a slim white head. Sweet, peachy aroma. Nice taste; sweet, fruity with some light bitterness in the finish. Full bodied, alcohol well hid, but noticable in a warming way, really late on. I found this a much better crafted beer than the ambree. Very good.

maeib (8664) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2005
Bottled. An anaemic blonde coloured beer with no head. The aroma is very sweet and syrupy and the taste is also very sweet and a bit cloying. Reminiscent of a honey beer. No comparison to its stronger stable mate. A real disappointment.

shrubber85 (7557) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAY 15, 2005
Bottle. A sweet orange-peach aroma - very nice. Light yellow color wtih small head. Sweet apple and orange flavor with a moderate acidic finish. Another nice strong ale from Dubuisson.

MiP (13596) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 4, 2005
Bottle. Aroma of fresh fruit, green apples. Hint of metal. Quite clear golden colour, floaties in the bottom of the bottle. Small white head. Peppery flavour with a little hint of bad, strong lager. The alcohol in this beer is much nicer, however.Peppery finish, warms all the way down to your gut.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 20, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2005 (Bottle 25 cl) A few years ago Dubuisson launched this slightly weaker variation of Bush Beer. They named it Bush Blonde and at the same time renamed the original 12% Bush Beer to Bush Ambrée. I believe a 7% Bush still exists as well as the juicy Bush Noël. Color is blonde - of course - with a lot of yeast sediment. Extremely fruity and fresh despite the large alcohol volume. Very distinctive and aromatic ale. But is to be enjoyed in small portions. 220902
