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.

Gurthnar (4534) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAY 15, 2016
Bottle. Almost clear golden colour. Caramelly sweetish and slightly alcoholic aroma. Taste is not very complex, sweetish, caramelly, light alcohol. But otherwise booze is hidden very well. Surprisingly and dangerously drinkable. Quite good.

Shark_Pants (565) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 14, 2016
BB 15 Jan 17. Pours hazy gold with dense white head. Lots of candi sugar in the aroma, along with bready malt, a little banana, alcohol. The taste has a honey malt character, with candi sugar, a little fresh bread, banana, some booze. Light tanginess. Medium to full bodied. Decent, but too much residual sweetness unbalances it.

So, I have this cute, little Scaldis glass that Dickinsonbeer gifted me a few years ago. Its like a champagne coupe glass. Its really not useful for drinking any beer. Meaning, I basically only use it when I have a Dubuisson/Bush beer. I picked up this beer from Bottleworks. Dated 20/02/2016, which I am guessing is best before, hmmmm. It is indeed a blonde beer, as advertised. Aroma is like alcoholic Belgian cake frosting. Flavor is apple candy with alcoholic heft. I mean, how much describing does a Dubuisson/Bush beer. As usual, they are strong and alcoholic but well made otherwise. Esters are always well subdued, malts are tasty and clean but you always feel like you’re drinking high quality Belgian malt liquor.

brnandersen (3082) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 12, 2016
33 cl. bottle poured in to a Trappist glass. Slightly hazy, golden colour with a copper tint. Thin, white head. Sweet aroma with spices, yeasts, booze, peach, banana and hay. Taste is sweet. Full body with a creamy texture and an average carbonation. Finishes slightly dry with spices, sweet fruits and a warmth from the alcohol. If the alcohol was 1-2 % lower this would be good. Too much alcohol in this one.

Dorato carico con poca schiuma. Al naso malto e spezie. Al palato buona dolcezza contrastata da una leggera secchezza e amarezza. Buon corpo e alcol. Carbonazione media.
