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.

Very nice and strong beer. Delicious with a dinner, this is a bitter that still can go down easily. Smells and looks great, and this is only accentuated by the taste.

Wow. I had this as a kid and remembered it as being malty, but it’s also brimming with alcohol, spice and bitterness!

Cloudy orange color, a few small pieces of yeast floating in the beer(!), extremely strong alcohol content, and not that well hidden, not really my thing. Burns going down. Spicy finish and a hint of bitterness. A disappointment.

A stong smooth amber with a slight apricot flavor. One of my favorites.

250 ML bottle best before 06/03 drank on 05/02: A very impressive job of hiding the extra alcohol. The warming on the way down is what gives it away. Clear orange color, fruity malt aroma, sweet taste, but not much aftertaste. I didn’t realize that this was Bush 12% when I bought it, as it was labeled Scaldis (and I didn’t notice the ABV on the bottle).

For those of us liek myself who love the warming affect of a 12% Beglian Strong ale has on one’s palate than this is for you,Not for the weak or timid.Complex slightly sweet,with subuded spice for such a strong beer and e faint biter finish.

Nice copper/gold colour, average head, earthy straw aroma, well balanced fruity caramel flavour. The alcohol is present but not overpowering. A good beer.

This is for the stuff labeled as Scaldis for the US (dang A-B). AFAIK its still the same as Bush, just a different name: Orangey gold color, med thick lightweight foamy head. Earthy fruity aroma with notes of flowers. Very strong yeasty spicy flavor with a potent alcoholic burn, not unlike whiskey. Very fizzy - I could do without some of that extra carb. Bitter finish.

Okay so the last time I had this was about two years ago. But I distinctly remember having this following a Westmalle Triple which is one of my favorites. What stuck with me was the fact that it gave the Westmalle a definite run for it’s money. I hope I can locate one of these again.

Sweet cidery and citrusy flavors, some spice. Overall, quite impressed with this beer.
