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.

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.

Vells (1241) - Rīga, Latvija, LATVIA - DEC 25, 2015
Quite hardcore boozy, even too bozy for me, tho I like high ABV brews. Some maltiness, light caramel, citrus hoppy, light yeasty. Light sweetness with light bitterness Decent, but booze overcomes all

Smaržo pēc grādīga kndžas pale ale :) Garša sākotnēji ir laba, bet ļoti ātri "normirst". Diezgan neintersants

ruigo (1893) - PORTUGAL - NOV 27, 2015
33cl bottle. Clear golden colour with a generous white head. Sweet, sugar, apricot, honey, malt and light yeast in the aroma. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is sweet... Too sweet. Overall, a bit dull beer.

pityu (461) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 16, 2015
Bottle - Clear golden colour, medium sized white head, average retention and lacing. Fruity and yeasty nose with some peach, apples, orange, sugar, some citrus. Taste is sweet fruity, stenfruits, grapes, candies, some bananas, low hops in the end. Medium to full body, soft carbonation, spicy finish. Alcohol is well masked. Nice ant typical belgian strong ale, but it should be more complex at this strength.

maekchu (3044) - Hirakata, JAPAN - NOV 12, 2015
Bottle from Yamaya. Aromas of sugar, grain, overripe stone fruit, some citrus, yeast, and fumes. Hazy medium straw color. Fruity initial, and then intensifies into notes of berries, stone fruit, and even some umami-like bits, and small spice. Medium-heavy body. Hides the alcohol very well.

PapaVillum (764) - Valby, DENMARK - NOV 10, 2015
Gylden og ravfarvet samt meget boblende Belgian Strong Ale med pæn hvid tætskummende top på et par cm, svindende til 1/2 cm. Fersken, abrikos og anden eksotisk frugt i aromaen. Tydelig frugtdomineret. Bittersød smag med en anelse mere bitterhed end sødme og dernæst en tydelig og kraftig alkoholvarme. Krydret af koriander og vel balanceret. Stor fyldig krop og karboneret på et middel niveau. Konsistensen er olieret, og afslutningen er mere bitter end midt i selve smagen. En majestætisk Blonde fra Dubuisson, som ikke er bange for at røre ved de stærke sager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
