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.

Lore (969) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 9, 2014
slightly cloudy yellow colour, huge white head; aroma of yeast, earthy notes, grassy hops, figs and some floral notes; taste is too alcoholic...I’m a bit confused with Dubuisson’s Bush beers - some of them are excellent, some of them (like this one) are far below the average belgian beers

Renobob (550) - Besançon, FRANCE - DEC 28, 2013
Belle blonde, peu de mousse. On sent bien l'alcool mais sans être agressé. Finale un peu courte par contre.

tricksta_p (874) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - DEC 9, 2013
Pours a clear golden with a white head. Aroma of malts, fruits, alcohol, not much else. Unpleasant sweetness and booziness. Onedimensional beer, no balance at all.

AdamJackson (2343) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 9, 2013
Very hazy burnt orange. Nose is quite boozy and sweet with cloves and toffee. Wheat heavy, lots of sweet sugar and candy corns, caramel, candy corn and a burnt boozy / bitter finish. Interesting but a lot of ABV.

Blonde assez alcoolisée, mais très agréable en bouche. A peine une pellicule de mousse au moment de la servir.

andriesradu (452) - ROMANIA - OCT 24, 2013
33cl. Pours clear golden with a fast diminishing white head. Heavy alchool aroma, malty, some herbal notes. Flavor is light to moderate bitter with a average duration, alchool, moderate carbonation. Better as it warms up.
