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.

thanatosti (1183) - - JAN 29, 2013
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

Flanfl (276) - Bordeaux, FRANCE - AUG 10, 2015
Clear golden body, big white head. Aroma of honey, fruits (apricot?), spices and alcohol. Flavour is quite similar with a good malt backbone. At the first sip alcohol is too forward, then my palate got used too and the whole became more balanced. Medium sweet alcohlic finish. Medium-full body, medium carbo. Good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

martjoobolut (1684) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 2, 2015
0,33L bottle (from beerExpress, Tallinn). Pours golden with whiteish head. The head stays. Aroma is sweet, sugar, fruits, spices. Flavor is sweet, fruits, citrus, spices, and malt. Finish is dry-peppery bitter with alcohol. Overall: ok, feels too boozy and not really well balanced.

Pours pale golden, clear colour, with white head. Visualy high caebonation, Aroma is strange mix of grape, citrus and coriander, but without notice of an alcohol. Similar is flavor: alcohol is noticable, with notes of coriander, citrus, grape and orange peels. malt sweetness is medium, hop bitterness also, carbonation is high. Body is sticky, finish is sticky sweet and dry bitter.

SkillsFactory (194) - ITALY - JUN 26, 2015
Tra l'oro e l'ambrato chiaro, schiuma bianca di buona persistenza. Aroma di frutta matura: albicocca e uvetta, leggermente speziata, leggera scorza d'arancia, leggero frumento ed alcool. Al palato gli esteri fruttati sono predominanti, sul finale il luppolo equilibra un po' la bevuta che comunque rimane abbastanza dolce ma non stucchevole con una discreta componente alcolica. Corpo medio, abbastanza carbonata.

laiti (7508) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 25, 2015
33 cl bottle @ Delirium Cafe, Brussels
Aroma has sweet apricot, alcohol, grain and mild grassy tones. Also cereal. Flavour has cereal, apricot, alcohol and some mild menthol notes. Too much alcohol comes through, clearly this is a Bush.

jamaty (1325) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 11, 2015
Amarilla turbia, dos dedos de espuma. Aroma no marcado, algo citrico. En boca cuerpo y carbonatacion medios. Primer gusto bastante frutal (melocoton) luego sale la efervescencia en la lengua y finalmente un fuerte amargor progresivo, muy acentuado al final y duradero mostrandose ademas la potencia del alcohol.

Batavi (166) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAY 18, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2015 Uitgeschonken in craquelé Bush bierbokaal. Goudblond bier met medium witte schuimkraag die inzakt, een dunne schuimlaag blijft wel continue in het glas. Bijzonder en aangenaam aroma van Belgische gist, fruit als banaan, appels en witte wijn. Echt een aroma dat zeldzaam is in een blond bier. De smaak is krachtig, fruitig, complex licht zoet. Met tonen van banaan, appel, peer en verassende witte wijn en brandy tonen. Ook enigszins kruidachtige tonen van nootmuskaat, kruidnagel en witte peper. Mooie wijnachtige, houtige en zelfs medicinale tonen in het smaakpallet en aroma. De afdronk is medium lang zacht bitter, met enkele wijnachtige tannines en een peperige, hoppige finish. Haalt niet het niveau van de Bush Prestige, (die trouwens op basis van de Amber is), maar wel een bijzonder lekker bier in de blonde categorie, met een specifieke en sterke alcoholische smaak, die misschien niet aan iedereen besteed is. Compliment aan Brasserie Dubuisson, voor dit mooie en en smaakvolle artisanaal gebrouwen blond bier.

hrabren (239) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 19, 2015
April 11th 2015: tasting@Svijet piva, Zagreb. 0.33 bottle shared with Dami, Habek and Radoš. Hazy dark yellow, firm off-white creamy head. Fruity aroma, dried fruits, citrus and candy. Bitter at first, then a strong alcohol kick which fades rather quickly. Alcohol remains in the finish, lack off body. Pretty good.
