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.

Liqour. Sweet, but fruity and round. Prunes. Complex and rich.

Copper gold with a rich head and copious brussels lace. Very bitter on the order of Orval. Malty and the first beer I’ve tasted with subtle tones of fine Cuban tobacco. Alcoholic flavor with relatively strong vanilla notes. A leafy green hop flavor is also present. Sherry, vanilla nose. Takes time to enjoy as most Belgians do. A very complex and unique beer.

Tastes like a boilermaker with vodka instead of whisky. No malt flavors. Pass.

Going the Brewer’s website, I recognize the label of what I had as this beer though the photo on this site isn’t the same. What makes me doubt myself is this didn’t seem like any amber beer I’ve ever had. It was a cloudy yellow, light brown kind of color. It didn’t have any major flavor actually aside from being very thick ’apple cider’ like. I wasn’t particularly impressed.

Nice one if you want to get drunk really fast, but overall this one isn’t a favorite of mine.
