We’ve featured a few beers from Brasserie Dubuisson before, and they are beers that deserve some respect. The family brewery was established in 1769, and is still run by the Dubuisson family who have a penchant for brewing high alcohol beers.
This beer was first introduced in 1998, to celebrate 65 years of the famous Bush Amber (Scaldis) beer; which once held the title of Belgium’s strongest beer.
We will assign this beer to the Belgian catch-all ‘Strong Blonde Ale’ category, though it exhibits features of both a Belgian Blond and a Tripel. Traditional malts, saaz hops and candi sugar combine with the proprietary Dubuisson yeast to create a bright golden beer.
A fruity and grainy sweetness from the malt, banana and clove, grassy hops, spicy yeast and a generous warmth from the high ABV. This is a beer to sip and enjoy.
