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.

Soemhow I felt uncomfortambly much more alcohol in this one than in Bush Amber. Has an appearance of a czech pils, frothy, and later creamy head; sweet, long bitter finish. For me harsher and less complex than the Amber that I now know I prefer.

330ml bottle from beergusto. Pale golden pour, big white head. Belgian yeasty aromas, bread, grass. Warming alcohol taste, but slips down very easily. Nice.

J’ ai bien aimé cette bière :) Gout prononcé qui tient en bouche, ni trop forte ni trop sucré

Sweet blonde Belgian strong with a soft and balanced aroma, easily digestible.

Muggus69 (1108) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - FEB 21, 2014
OLD NOTES NOV 21, 2004 Quite a strong sweet aroma. Typical Belgian strong ale yeastiness to it. Spice, apple and apricot kind of fruitiness, and alcohol. Pours a hazy peach coloured body with tightly packed white head. From the word go it’s thick. Creamy mouthful with plenty of light fruit flavour, spice, alcohol and hop hints. I found this one much less harsh than their 12%. An enjoyable Belgian strong, but not outstanding. Certainly couldn’t have more than a couple of these either!

freretoc (443) - Besançon, FRANCE - FEB 11, 2014
Bu en bouteille de 33cl, bière blonde et peu de mousse, en bouche c’est un peu trop fort sur l’alcool, et une note de citron, un peu too much en alcool

Lore (835) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 9, 2014
slightly cloudy yellow colour, huge white head; aroma of yeast, earthy notes, grassy hops, figs and some floral notes; taste is too alcoholic...I’m a bit confused with Dubuisson’s Bush beers - some of them are excellent, some of them (like this one) are far below the average belgian beers

DwarfeD (701) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - FEB 7, 2014
33cl bottle at home. Pale golden/orange with a medium soapy head. Medium to full body with moderate carbonation. Citrus, herbs, orange, some peach and warming alcohol. A quality belgian brew.

Renobob (453) - Besançon, FRANCE - DEC 28, 2013
Belle blonde, peu de mousse. On sent bien l'alcool mais sans être agressé. Finale un peu courte par contre.

tricksta_p (646) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - DEC 9, 2013
Pours a clear golden with a white head. Aroma of malts, fruits, alcohol, not much else. Unpleasant sweetness and booziness. Onedimensional beer, no balance at all.
