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.

bonkiedeaap (495) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 31, 2014
Bottle from de Bierschuur in Poppel. The beer has a golden/blonde color and a large white head, with a lot of bubbles. The aroma consists of the sweetness of fruits and honey, also a little yeast and a little citrus. The taste is well balanced, yeasty, fruity with some hops in the background. Sweet and the alcohol is very present. The finish is warming, a little alcoholic and a light bitterness makes it complete. A little to strong for me. Too much alcohol noticable in the taste, but further not a bad beer.

VDuquerroux (825) - Airvault, FRANCE - OCT 20, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2015 Bottle, 33cL. Home. A golden orange beer with some yeast sediments ; medium white head with a medium retention. Fruity aroma (citrus), light biscuit, herbs. Medium sweet, warming. Medium body, thin silky texture, average to soft carbonation, warming finish. Overall, OK, drinkable but a bit disappointed : 1-dimensional.
10/20/2014. 1/2 bottle, 33cL. A clear golden orange beer, few bubbles. Big white head witha poor retention. Fruity aroma (peach), floral, alcohol. Medium to heavy sweet. Warming. Full body, medium texture, good carbonation, sweet warming finish. Overall, warming (a bit too much for me). Hot !! 1/2 bottle is enough ! 7-3-4-3-10

Aroma contains some dominating (not malt, but:) barley. A sweet taste, it tastes like the aroma. a good beer to drink with soft cheeses!

Alengrin (3686) - BELGIUM - AUG 8, 2014
The younger, blonde sister of the famous Bush Ambrée, with cream white, irregular, thin head and deep golden blonde colour with warm orange shade. Somewhat bizarre, bit smoky aroma, caramel, mango, cork, whisky, cookie dough, vanilla, orange peel, cloves, gin. Sweetish onset, honeyish, then evolving into a light smokiness, bit woody, quickly dominated by a warming, brandy-like alcohol that dominates the rest of the palate, though a mild touch of hop bitterness also appears in the end. Weird brew, not sure what to think of it.

Voor zo’n zwaar blond bier te zijn is de smaak redelijk flets. Ik vond het de minste van de bush-bieren

Calisky (2021) - ALSACE, FRANCE - JUL 27, 2014
Couleur jaune trouble, petite mousse blanche. Nez pas trop fort, fruité et levures, notes bananes et raisins. Gout fruité et levures avec notes raisin mais notes forte d’alcool et astringence, mauvaise balance , en fin de bouche.

Icedwarf (926) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JUL 27, 2014
Helder levendig geel bier met schuim. Smaak is zoet, licht zuur en licht bitter met spoeren van citrus en rozijnen. Blijft lang hangen.
