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.

Flaska från Bier Tempel Bryssel. Gyllengul färg med inslag av rött. Doftar medicinskål och svagt av fänkol. Smakar anis och gröna örter. En hög sötma kamouflerar den 12%-iga alkoholhalten. Fyllig och eldig munkänsla.

Franksv6 (411) - Tiel, NETHERLANDS - MAR 2, 2015
25cl bottle, 4 years old. Clear copper colored beer with a small white head, medium carbonation. Smells spicy. Taste is also very spicy, caramel, sweet fruit and lots of alcohol. Sweet aftertaste with lots of alcohol.

arsol (724) - NORWAY - FEB 28, 2015
Rødbrun farge. Lukter malt og sødme. Og også alkohol. Smaker desverre for mye alkohol for meg. Søtlig og bitter avslutning.

Jannick13 (130) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 26, 2015
Bottle. Pours ruby amber with small white head. Werid on the nose; smells bad like a farm. Taste is decent thought spices, slightly sweet and a bit of a bitter finish. Ok.

Marduk (3476) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 22, 2015
330ml bottle. Clear dark amber color. Medium size head, disappears within a minute. Pours out as fizzy as lemonade. Caramel, malty, grainy, sweet, bit dusty aroma. Caramel, malty, sweet in taste. Not typical Belgian. Nice malty aftertaste. Alcohol is hidden at first, but as it warms up (ohh really?), more of it comes up. Not disturbing thou. Nice one.

RhetoricalAns (481) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2015
Orange amber pour, finger of white head, drops to a ring of white forth, some lacing. Sour taste that slapped me in the face after the last beer, but it smoothed out after awhile. Ended up being fairly sweet, caramel malt, lots of fruit, peach.

JefVerstraete (1883) - Ghent, BELGIUM - FEB 18, 2015
Bottle @ Fiere Margriet. Dark amber, creamy white foam. Aroma of caramel, peach and spices. Alcoholic finish. Light bitter, very sweet. Ok, but a bit too sweet.

Beardbeerman (222) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 14, 2015
Pours a clear copper topped by a timid fizzy tanned head quickly fading to nothing. Some very fine bubbles and no lacing. The nose is honey, bubblegum, band-aid and alcohol. The taste is bold sweet malts with honey and brown sugar with some banana or cantaloupe and booze. Almost whisky-like. Very dense mouthfeel from the alcohol which lingers a long while after the sip. Heavy but still drinkeable, you can let this one age in your cellar quite some due to its high ABV. Cheers!

Lele (206) - Padova, ITALY - FEB 1, 2015
ASPETTO: pelo di volpe, limpidissimo. Schiuma leggermente giallognola, abbastanza fine e persistente. AROMA: alcolico, abbastanza liquoroso, speziato. GUSTO: un capolavoro. Birra calda, dal contenuto alcolico importante, che riscalda la gola, ma che non da mai alla testa. Sentori un po’ liquorosi, di frutta secca, ma soprattutto fruttati (frutta gialla, in particolare pesche sciroppate e soprattutto della chiarissima banana).
