COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It was created in 1933 by Alfred Dubuisson, grand-father of the present family brewer, Hugues. Its former name was "Bush Beer 24°" (the density in Ballings), but today it is known as Bush Amber. Its amber colour is due to the use of caramel malt in the production process. Its bitter sweet taste provides it with firmness and personality. What's more, it helps digestion.

dysenteri (78) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - AUG 25, 2016
33 cl bottle from Beergium. Pretty clear amber colour with off-white head. Aroma of bananabread, malts, caramel, sweet dried fruit, you can smell the alcohol in this one... Very sweet taste, caramel, banana esters. Light body, average carbonation. Overall too sweet and got not much else to offer.

b33r (842) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - AUG 13, 2016
10/03/2016: Bright orange color, transparent and bubbly, with small tan head. Ariana and flavor have mostly Amber mLt notes. Flavor is creamy with very little alcohol presence. Smooth and tasty. I don’t know if that’s the best by date or bottled on date...

ulrikolsen (273) - DENMARK - AUG 11, 2016
Bottle@Chapitre. Pours clear amber with beige head. Aroma is sweet and fruity with banana and ripe fruits and some alcohol. Taste is sweet and fruity with banana, ripe fruits and caramel maltyness. Alcohol coming clearly through, so not the best balance.

Brewhemia (168) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 10, 2016
Clear amber with white head. Lots of aroma of apples, pears and grapes. Seems a but artificially clear in its fruit aromas but still nice though. Lots of sweetness and banana flavor in the taste and tons of alchohol. The alcohol is way to dominating I think. It’s all that lingers in the finish. Not very balanced or charming I think.

mice (782) - FINLAND - AUG 10, 2016
Punertavanoranssi, vahvasti kupliva olut paksulla, pienikuplaisella valkoisella vaahdolla, joka jättää hieman pitsiä jälkeensä. Tuoksu mieto, hieman karamellinen, hedelmäinen ja raikkaan oloinen. Maku varsin alkoholimainen varsinkin jälkipuraisultaan. Sitä ennen makeaa täyteläistä maltaisuutta, karamellia ja mausteista katkeroa. Alkoholi kuitenkin jyrää lopulta kaiken muun turhan voimakkaasti. Mausteinen ja alkoholin myötä pitkään lämmittävä jälkimaku.

Forte, trčs forte. puissante et enivrante. On est sur le malt, le caramel mais sans écśurement. Jolie bičre de dégustation !

AdolfoCC (153) - Veracruz, Veracruz, MEXICO - JUL 13, 2016
Servida en un cáliz. APARIENCIA: de color ámbar cobrizo con algunos destellos naranjas a contraluz, se observa ligeramente turbia y una mediana actividad de carbonatación; corona de espuma color blanco, de buena retención, con burbujas compactas. AROMA: dulce, frutal y licorosa, con notas muy frutales marcadas, destacan los frutos rojos, grosella, moras, manzana verde, algunas notas a azúcar no procesado y ligeramente a caramelo. SABOR: similar al aroma; al inicio del trago de siente dulce y ligeramente el licor, seguido de las notas a azúcar no procesado, ligeramente caramelo, nuevamente las notas frutales vuelven a destacar con frutos rojos como grosella y moras, manzana verde es lo que más domina; el retrogusto queda un amargor medio bajo ligeramente dulce pero no empalaga. SENSCIÓN: cuerpo medio ligero, con una mediana de carbonatación. El alcohol se llega a sentir ligeramente en boca y en garganta como sensación cálida al pasar el trago. RESUMEN: Buena belgian stron pale ale.

Fules (728) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUL 11, 2016
Habja alig, az is gyorsan eltűnik. Színe gyönyörű vörösréz. Illata gyenge, édeskés, alkoholos, kissé gyümölcsös. Íze erősen alkoholos, konyakos, határozott komlós keserűsség, ami lecsengéskor erősödik. Utóíze kesernyés, de ez gyorsan elmúlik, és az alkohol marad még egy ideig. Enyhén édeskés. Ahogy melegszik, előjön némi karamelles jelleg is. Igen telt sör.
