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.

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.

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.

Grisza77 (441) - Poznań, POLAND - FEB 16, 2016
Złote, mętne piwo o średniej pianie, która dość szybko redukuje się do zera. Aromat nie powala intensywnością, głownie jasne winogrona. W smaku lekko kwaskowe, lekko alkoholowe, lekko owocowe. Goryczka średnia w stronę wysokie, lekko alkoholowa. Ogólnie jak na belgian strong ale to szału nie ma, piwo ma cechy belgijskie, jednak trochę za mało uwydatnione.

Perfect bij het ingieten (perfect pouring): je krijgt direct zin om eraan te beginnen (good sign!) ziet er goed uit (looks nice) en ruikt ook lekker (Orange peel, yeast, mowed grass in summer, some citrus, honeyisch). smaakt direct aangenaam lekker en ook wat complexiteit (appealing with some complexity), zoete toets (some banana) en een klein bittertje dat blijft (nice balance!). ondanks het alcoholgehalte drinkt dit bier heel vlot weg (dangerously tasteful!). goed mondgevoel (full and yet easy). nice!

Bottle labeled as Scaldis. Nose is a horribly oxidized mess. Papery and apple. No carbonation. Taste is sugar waterways paper. Messy.
