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.

hotstuff (4403) - Indiana, USA - OCT 27, 2004
Draft at the Erasmus in Brugge, Belgium. Carbonated, yeasty and transparent body with a yellow hue. Excellent lacing. Malty and alcohol aroma as was the flavor. Mouthfeel was tingly with a burning sensation. Well worth a try.

thedm (5136) - Fort Wayne, USA - OCT 8, 2004
The DM & Hotstuff’s European Honeymoon trip beer number 28. This draft brew from the Erasmus pub in Brugge poured a small sized head of finely sized mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a transparent yellow orange colored body and an excellent lacing. The aroma was vinous malty and strong while the mouth feel was also malty and vinous with a strong malty vinous alcohol flavor. This brew was very good and went down fast then delivered a great buzz. Drink with caution.

ToolHead (266) - København, DENMARK - APR 7, 2004
25 cl bottle, served in Gouden Carolus chalice. Pale, hazy gold w/ plenty of sediment floating about. OK head w/ decent retention. Light, flowery, somewhat anonymous aroma. Taste is delicately fruity at first but is quickly dominated by the alcohol, although it never gets as sweet and cloying as the 12% Bush. Firm, warming finish. Decent drinkability, considering the strength.

omhper (21268) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 6, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2004 Sampled draught at Akkurat, Stockholm.
Hazy golden. Peppery pineapple aroma. Fruity and quite sweet with dense malt profile. I get red berries and alcohol, but it's foremost assett is the dense salty maltiness. Complex but short flavour followed by licorice bitterness.

light acidic, fruity, flowery aroma.. A bit sharp for starters but calms down and finishes of smoothly... Great beer
