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.

Batavi (96) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAY 18, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2015 Uitgeschonken in craquelé Bush bierbokaal. Goudblond bier met medium witte schuimkraag die inzakt, een dunne schuimlaag blijft wel continue in het glas. Bijzonder en aangenaam aroma van Belgische gist, fruit als banaan, appels en witte wijn. Echt een aroma dat zeldzaam is in een blond bier. De smaak is krachtig, fruitig, complex licht zoet. Met tonen van banaan, appel, peer en verassende witte wijn en brandy tonen. Ook enigszins kruidachtige tonen van nootmuskaat, kruidnagel en witte peper. Mooie wijnachtige, houtige en zelfs medicinale tonen in het smaakpallet en aroma. De afdronk is medium lang zacht bitter, met enkele wijnachtige tannines en een peperige, hoppige finish. Haalt niet het niveau van de Bush Prestige, (die trouwens op basis van de Amber is), maar wel een bijzonder lekker bier in de blonde categorie, met een specifieke en sterke alcoholische smaak, die misschien niet aan iedereen besteed is. Compliment aan Brasserie Dubuisson, voor dit mooie en en smaakvolle artisanaal gebrouwen blond bier.

April 11th 2015: tasting@Svijet piva, Zagreb. 0.33 bottle shared with Dami, Habek and Radoš. Hazy dark yellow, firm off-white creamy head. Fruity aroma, dried fruits, citrus and candy. Bitter at first, then a strong alcohol kick which fades rather quickly. Alcohol remains in the finish, lack off body. Pretty good.

Marko (4180) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 24, 2015
Thanks Pornoguru for sharing this one! Why was I sure I’ve rated the Bush beers? No idea. But here they are, so yay! Hazy golden body with a small white head. Malty, light aroma, banana, somewhat herbal. Fizzy taste, carbonation bite, vinuous, somewhat malty. Not bad, but hardly thrilling. Alcohol well hidden though.

Bottle. Honey color, clear, nice foam head. Aroma: boozy citrus fruits mix, dried orange, dried lemon, bitter lemon. Taste is quite refreshing despite the abv. Follows the aroma. Some grains, vanilla touch, honey. Development: sour to sweet palate. Little too sweet for me.

Lele (219) - Padova, ITALY - JAN 12, 2015
Birra spettacolare, dal sapore decisamente tendente al dolce, ma assolutamente mai stucchevole. Il colore è oro carico, limpidissimo, con schiuma fine, bianca e persistente. L’aroma è pieno e avvolgente, e in bocca è un capolavoro, con un fruttato deciso (frutta gialla), insieme ad un buon floreale, ma anche con un accenno liquoroso. Il tenore alcolico avvolge la bocca, ma l’alcool non da mai alla testa. Corpo strutturato.

Une blonde trouble, forte en alcool. Assez sympathique. Assez classique malgré tout. Ok.
