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.

33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Hogerdijk, Culemborg. Hazy golden with a big white head. Very fruity aroma, with hints of vanilla and spices. Yeasty taste with some very present alcohol. Medium bitter aftertaste and lively carbonation. Too overpowered blonde in terms of alcohol content. Maybe if the ABV was lowered to 8% the result wouldn’t be so harsh and boozy

Una strong ale molto buona. Decisamente alcolica, ma rispetto alla sorella maggiore ambrata è meno strutturata e con corpo medio. Più beverina

Bottle from de Bierschuur in Poppel. The beer has a golden/blonde color and a large white head, with a lot of bubbles. The aroma consists of the sweetness of fruits and honey, also a little yeast and a little citrus. The taste is well balanced, yeasty, fruity with some hops in the background. Sweet and the alcohol is very present. The finish is warming, a little alcoholic and a light bitterness makes it complete. A little to strong for me. Too much alcohol noticable in the taste, but further not a bad beer.

1/2 bottle, 33cL. A clear golden orange beer, few bubbles. Big white head witha poor retention. Fruity aroma (peach), floral, alcohol. Medium to heavy sweet. Warming (a bit too much for me). Hot !! Full body, medium texture, good carbonation, sweet warming finish. Overall, good aroma, pleasant taste. 1/2 bottle is enough !

Aroma contains some dominating (not malt, but:) barley. A sweet taste, it tastes like the aroma. a good beer to drink with soft cheeses!

Alengrin (2351) - 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
