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.

Calisky (3154) - ALSACE, - JUL 27, 2014
Couleur jaune trouble, petite mousse blanche. Nez pas trop fort, fruité et levures, notes bananes et raisins. Gout fruité et levures avec notes raisin mais notes forte d’alcool et astringence, mauvaise balance , en fin de bouche.

kapusil (1565) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 18, 2018
0.33l bottle. Golden body with a thick white head that last surprisingly long for a 10.5 ABV beer. Aroma and taste of bready, grainy malts, some nuttyness and a tiny bit of grassy hops. It has a strong sugar syrupy character too and the alcohol content is evident. Not harsh, but warming. I also notice some fruits to it (mostly pears). OK beer, but not something you would remember forever.

4.1
Vignale (4124) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 29, 2017
2013 vintage. Någonstans mellan bärnstensfärgad och gyllengul, massar av fint/halvstort sediment, lågt vitt skum. Som en välmogen frukt. Fortfarande stuns i kroppen och väl utvecklade smaker. Massor av honung och torkad frukt buret av värmande alkohol. Tror att lagringstiden var närmast optimal. Mycket gott.

2.3
Jabic (735) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - DEC 22, 2017
Ar: Tangy marmalade; saccharine; artificial peach; burning sugary booze. Ap: Copper-gold and clear; small very light tan head with low retention, settling into a finely bubbled ring platform and a thin but solid nebula in the middle. T: Sherry and booze; caramelized sugar and peaches; low bitterness, no hop flavor; nougat and apple. P: Medium body with high carbonation; finish is medium-dry. O: This beer seems to fall apart, trying but failing to balance the alcohol and malt; it does not help matters that it is quite oxidized.

Zware Belgische blonde met een hoog alcoholpercentage. Smaak is licht bitter en een klein beetje zoetig.

Tide (4566) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 12, 2017
Draught at Delirium Reserve Tokyo. Golden color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, caramel, earthy notes, a bit of ripe fruits, alcohol and grass. Bitter finish with citrus, caramel, earthy notes, ripe fruits and grass. Good Belgian strong ale.

Beamer (135) - Malden, NETHERLANDS - OCT 3, 2017
Zoet fruitig biertje, valt ondanks het alcohol van 10% in het niet bij zijn broertje Bush Amber van 11%. ik ga voor de laatste.

arturteen (386) - Radomsko, POLAND - SEP 26, 2017
[Butelka 20.09.2018] Barwa złocista, zamglone. Piana obfita, średnio pęcherzykowa, redukująca się szybko do obwódki na szkle. Nasycenie wysokie. Dominują aromaty owocowe (estrowe), można wyczuć brzoskwinie, banana, melon. Smak słodowy z nutami przypraw. Goryczka średnio-niska, alkohol przyzwoicie ukryty. Nasycenie wysokie.

equisetum (188) - Kielce, POLAND - SEP 26, 2017
Piwo koloru złotego, klarowne z intensywną średniopęcherzykową pianą. Uwaga dość mocno nagazowane. W aromacie czuć wyrażne estry owocowe (brzoskwinia, gruszka, banan, melon), jest dość słodko i bardzo przyjemnie. W smaku czuć słód, delikatne nuty biszkoptowe oraz owoce podobne jak w aromacie. Do tego dochodzą aromaty przypraw (pieprz?) typowe dla drożdży belgijskich. Goryczka dość łagodna wyczuwalna głównie w finiszu, razem z delikatną nutą alkoholową (jak na piwo 10,5% alkohol niemalże niewyczuwalny). Piwo jest na prawdę znakomite! Warto spróbować.

3.5
Bush_Docta (435) - - SEP 20, 2017
Pours clear golden colour, with a frothy head. The aroma is ripe apples, Belgian yeast and some alcohol. The taste is sweet white fruits, alcohol, some acidity and burnt brown sugar, a little spiciness at the end. The body is medium, carbonation is high, alcoholic finish. Solid.
