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.

Papsoe (25073) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 20, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2005 (Bottle 25 cl) A few years ago Dubuisson launched this slightly weaker variation of Bush Beer. They named it Bush Blonde and at the same time renamed the original 12% Bush Beer to Bush Ambrée. I believe a 7% Bush still exists as well as the juicy Bush Noël. Color is blonde - of course - with a lot of yeast sediment. Extremely fruity and fresh despite the large alcohol volume. Very distinctive and aromatic ale. But is to be enjoyed in small portions. 220902

oh6gdx (22531) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 28, 2006
Bottled. Slightly hazy golden colour, small white head. Aroma is fruit, caramel, malts and hops. Flavour is caramellish malts, slight "grassy alcohol" on the tongue, hides the ABV very well for being 10+. Aftertaste is grass and caramel.

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2004 Sampled draught at Akkurat, Stockholm.
Hazy golden. Peppery pineapple aroma. Fruity and quite sweet with dense malt profile. I get red berries and alcohol, but it's foremost assett is the dense salty maltiness. Complex but short flavour followed by licorice bitterness.

fiulijn (16426) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 20, 2004
Blond color. Sweet aroma, with alcohol, some fruitness (light banana). Some sweetness, some malt, maybe still too much alcohol. Quite strong final (alcoholic as well). Professional brewing of a bad idea; not complex.
