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.

Enjoyit (3809) - Vadum, DENMARK - SEP 29, 2009
Unclear amber of color with a white head. An aroma of sweets and spice. A flavor of spice, dried fruits and sweets.

ska (232) - ITALY - SEP 21, 2009
33cl bottle, clear pale golden colour, small white head, light caramel malt aroma with spices and sugar notes, very sweet sugar flavor with shy hops notes, medium body, finish also with sugar...a bit cloying sweetness and light aroma, not seems to be 10,5% alcohol (without reading I thought it was not more than 6%), not a big belgian ale

weaselkenievil (1609) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2009
On tap at the Erasmus, Bruges. Clear yellow gold with nice healthy white head. Fresh tasting and fruity, a fine way to start the day (just opened when we walked in). Little malty and yeasty with a little dry sweetness. Not spectacular in any way but solid enough and enjoyable.

floydian1 (1518) - FNQ, Australia, - AUG 24, 2009
250ml bottle into Trappist glass. Pours murky pale orange with a small but lasting white head providing very good lacing. Lots of yeast sediments at the bottom of the glass. Candy sugar, yeast, alcohol and orangey citrus on the nose. Smooth full bodied palate with sweet malty flavours and an acidic spicy hop finish. The alcoholic presence is noticeable. Not bad but I’ve tasted many better Belgian blonds.

3.3
ekstedt (7005) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 26, 2009
Bottle (33 cl) at the brewpub at Bredaryd Wärdshus. Hazy amber with floating small yeast particles, medium white head. Fruity, teasty and alcoholic. Full bodied and very smooth. Fairly dry.

3.3
altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - FEB 6, 2009
Gold body with decent head. Fruity nose with some spicyness to it. Fruity and sweet taste. Alcohol quite strong but masked quite well. Dry finish.

Fin (11047) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2009
Bottle that I picked up somewhere, probably Westholme Store Goring-on-Thames, Oxon, consumed 17-01-09. Pours mid gold moving towards warm gold, white head. Aroma is fruity, some spice and quite boozy. Taste is fruity and sweet with malts very much in evidence, its also a bit yeasty but the alcohol really does show throughout. A6 A3 F6 P3 OV12

3.5
Plovmand (8682) - Grindsted, DENMARK - JAN 13, 2009
Bottle. Hazy ligth orange body with a medium white head. Fruity and yeast aroma with some alcohol and medicine. Flavour is very flowery with some fruity and yeasty notes. Quite refreshing for a 10,5% beer. Spice dry finish.

3.2
FatPhil (17334) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 6, 2009
250ml bottle (Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam)
Hazy pale orange, lathery white head. Very subtle fruity and flowery aroma, either understated, or just weak. Touch of almond too. Soft palate, but alcohol creeps up the back of the nose. Some fruity esters joined by a touch of glue too. Malty body is quite gentle and sweet, but certainly tasty. Hops are also subtle, but build up gradually, and are definitely buddy and most pleasant. Despite the first taste, the alcohol doesn’t come to the fore at all after that. There’s something quite pleasing about sipping this.
