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.

15/VIII/14 - on tap @ Internationaal Streekbierenfestival (Zwevegem) - BB: n/a (2014-905) Thanks to Johan and Fokke for sharing today’s beers!

Clear blond to light orange beer, creamy white head, pretty stable, bit adheisve. Aroma: very malty, grains, some grass, yeasty touch. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: sweet sugary start, overripe banana, alcohol, something off, sourish touch. Aftertaste: definitely something off, banana, little sour, citrus.

Alengrin (1743) - 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

Hazy golden color, big white creamy head with good retention. Some lacing. Full body, average carbonation. Aroma of malt, yeast, spices, fruits. Medium sweet taste. Alcohol is not noticable. Very nice.

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 (331) - 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.

Gedeeld met bryanvdv, aroma valt wat tegen met beperkt mout. Smaak is volzoet met een beetje lavendel en honing. Erg alcoholisch weinig inhoud, ook niet vies.

Fles gedeeld met rikstar. Goudgeel licht troebel bier. Aroma is zoet, bloemig, honing. Smaak is zoet, alcohol is gecamoufleerd. Wat gist proef je. Body is matig. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Blond bier. Smaak vanille, kruidig,weinig bitter, lekker veel alcohol. Sterk bier.De bush 12 is nog lekkerder.
