COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Toujours à la recherche de produits d’exception, Hugues Dubuisson eut l’idée de faire mûrir de la Bush Blonde dans le foudre de chêne ayant contenu du vin de Bourgogne blanc plus précisément le fameux Charmes Meursault ! La Brasserie décide alors d’acheter 13 foudres de 228 litres chacun pour produire la Bush de Charmes. Production limitée à 2600 bouteilles. Grâce à ce procédé étonnant, la Bush de Charmes offre une palette gustative très riche.

GoufCustom (2120) - HONG KONG - JUL 1, 2017


750ml cork bottle opened with loud ‘pop’ bought at ICBeer in Kwun Tong.

Looks: Translucent golden orange honey colour with a ring of dirt-like yeast sediments; Two and a half finger head with crumpety white foam which last for 4 minutes; Beautiful sticky lacing with very fizzy carbonation.

Aroma: Very fragrant and sweet full malt, with strong sparkling wine, strong white grapes, strong yellow fruits, caramel, honey, floral, sugar, wood barrel, spices, dry biscuits, yeast, lemon and fair grass. Lovely!

Taste: Mid to strong sweet sweet malt, with strong oak barrels, Port wine, white wine, apricots, white grapes, plums, caramel, floral, molasses, strong alcohol, liquorices, spices, strong dry biscuits, lemon and mid to strong bitter grassy hops.

Body: Full body. Dry, thick and smooth palate.

Mouth Feel: Full maltyness in a slightly sluggish background, a bit creamy. Dryish strong wine barrel dominates, with very good Port wine, white wine, apricots, grapes and caramel. Flowery hoppy with moderate sweetness tamed by the barrels. Spicy, very dry biscuit with good lemon to round. Really nice!

Booze: The 10.5% abv here is notable but subdued somewhat by the dryness and barrel wine taste. Liquorices works well with the hops for some subtle bitterness. Good!

Hoppiness: Floral, spices, lemon and fair grass in nose and taste; Bitterness is fairly strong for an abrupt, mid to high astringent bitter-sweet biscuit malty finish.

After Taste: Very dry. Spicy winey and quite bitter to mouth.

Comments: So this is a Burgundy oak barreled Bush Blonde, and much its BSA sweetness and fruityness were nicely replaced by strong dry white wineyess and subtle alcohol. A very easy going BSA being well tuned with wine barrels. Recommended!

Bottle thanks Kapusil. Golden yella little to no carbonation. Apples, pears, booze, white wine and bready yeast aroma. Tart belgian strong ale with strawbeery, peach, almond and bready yeast. Really good and kicks.

kapusil (1476) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 13, 2017
0.75l bottle. Hazy golden body with a huge white head. Aroma of bread, white wine, apples, nutmeg, lemon zest and a tiny bit of vinegar. Taste of bread, white wine, lemon zest, sugar syrup and nutmeg. The white wine character is in the center for sure. Great beer.

Boutip (6483) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 6, 2017
Bottle: Poured a hazy dirty golden color ale with a large off-white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of candi sugar with some vinous notes and some light oak notes. Taste is a mix of sweet Belgium malt offset by some grapes and vinous notes with some residual sugar notes with some oak which add some dryer notes. Body is full with great carbonation. Rich complex beer with wine barrel balancing some of the richness.

4.1
Ysok02 (1763) - Mons, BELGIUM - FEB 5, 2017
Moins complexe que la Bush prestige, elle est plus fruitée avec une robe plus claire, des arômes de fruits mûrs, de marc de raisin sur un fond malté et épicé. La bouche est ample, ronde, fruitée, avec une belle bulle onctueuse et une finale doucereuse.
