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.

vinivini (2243) - Gomel, BELARUS - APR 11, 2017
Hazy gold, tall white dense head. Good retention. Sweet malts and yeast on nose. Fruit. Vinous. A hint of metal. Medium to full body. Malty taste start. After that fruity and spicy yeast and solid booziness. Light to medium bitterness formed by hops and alcohol.

Inoven (695) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - APR 1, 2017
Flesje thuis gedronken. Goudgeel bier met vlokken. Grof schuim tijdens inschenken zakt snel weg. Weinig aroma, de smaak is echter verrassend fruitig en zoet. Enigszins sprankelend in de mond. Drinkt gevaarlijk licht weg voor een bier van 10.5 ABV.

Review: 33cl bottle of Bush Blonde: ABV: 10.5% The Bush Blonde, on the go since 1988, and introduced by Hugues Dubuisson on the 65th anniversary of the Bush Ambrée launched by his grandfather, Alfred. Considered to be one of the strongest beers from Belgium coming in at an alcoholic volume of 10.5% A lot, and I mean a lot, of gas on the pour, a bit of a mess truth been told. Full of carbonation, resulting in a massive head and a beer that took a long time to settle. It also was very murky looking, a lot of sediment in the bottom of the glass floating around, which looked a bit worrying and not at all appetizing. Head does die eventually to leave a small but decent looking head that maintains, and an orange looking beer. Minimal lacing. Overall, it looks terrible! One of the worst I have seen. On the nose get a strong citrus and fruity smell. Taste: initial taste, it was fucking horrible, a harsh alcohol taste, but once it settles down and I settled down myself from the shock, it is actually not too bad. Smooth enough for a 10% beer Can feel the alcohol alright but quaffable enough and not overpowering, not hoppy Smooth enough, all things considering (all the carbonation) Not hoppy. No bitter tastes. Yeah not bad A lot of sweet malts, some sweet fruits, and yeast. Overall this beer tastes a million times better than it looks, and after you get over the initial hit of all the strong smells and taste, it eventually is a beer to savour.

Bamsen78 (5336) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 7, 2017
Bottle. Pours hazy amber with small off-white head. Clear aroma of malt and fruit, with notes of flowers and yeast and touches of hops. Bitter, hoppy flavour with sweet kotes of malt, fruit and yeast. Bitterish aftertaste. Warming alcohol presence. Reasonable.

3.7
Achel (485) - Ioannina, GREECE - FEB 2, 2017
Slightly hazy, orangey-gold coloured, creamy white head; impressive sweetish-fruity nose (peaches, ananasses, apricots) mixed with some yeast and a resinous hoppy touch; solid sweet-bitter flavour, medium to full bodied, sweet-fruity, slightly alcoholic finish with a distinctive aromatic bitterness in the aftertaste. A great, well balanced, well quaffable brew.

4.1
Demens (425) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 4, 2016
0,33l bottle. Cloudy yellow colour with quickly disappearing white head. Aroma: Candy sugar, banana, notes of matured chedar. Taste: Very, very sweet malty start with a strong sweet mouthfeel that slowly turns into slightly sour feel, than the bitter tones are coming together. Quite dynamic. The alcohol isn’t harsh especially for 10,5%. Medium body with fizzy carbonaion. Long sweet/sour and slighlty bitter mouthfeel. A great dessert beer.
