the definition of a Bronsted Acid is "a solution that has an excess of H+ ions", which means that Bronsted Acids are basically proton donors. The strength of the acid is determined by it's dissociation, but just the sole fact that it dissociates to some extent isn't enough to label the compound as an acid.

A bronzed acid must be the proton donor in the chemical equation. It's dissociation determines the strength of the acid.
