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.

VDuquerroux (107) - Airvault, FRANCE - MAR 19, 2014
Bottle, 33cL. Home. A sparkling amber brown beer with a large white fine head. Medium persistence. Aroma of caramel, spices and alcohol. Heavy sweet, medium bitter. Full body, oily texture, average carbonation, warming sweet finish. Overall, a good beer as an after-dinner liqueur.

Rotaldinho (32) - Paris, FRANCE - MAR 15, 2014
Very little foam and non-persistent manner but shows a beautiful amber color with copper highlights and slightly cloudy. Nose, moderate to strong fruity odor dominated by banana through which we guess spices. In intensive mouth, it is very round, soft and spicy but also slightly bitter, yet a bit sweet. The final strong and persistent intensity is dominated by the fruity ripe banana with peppery notes.

gegwilson (636) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2014
Bottle from Bruges. Pours bright amber with a big fading cream head. Tastes cery boozy with caramel, sherry, wood and vanilla. Pretty good, but the alcohol is too much at the forefront.

Comme d’habitute les belge font les meilleurs bière avec ses notes de caramel la bush est une réfference.

borisz (372) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 9, 2014
Pours light amber with thin, suspended yeast flakes and a small head. It has a nice aroma of malt, dark fruit, and some alcohol. The flavor has sweet malts, dark fruit, and mild hops that leads into a very dry finish. The alcohol is pretty noticeable in this one, but somehow it works alright. Very enjoyable.

Ambrée limpide, grosse carbo, collet epais et persistant. Aromes fruité puissant tirant sur la poire, pain. Tres ronde, fruité et caramélisé. Belle longueur. On sent bien l’alcool !

Beerhunter111 (5660) - Hasborn, GERMANY - MAR 2, 2014
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein minimal trübes bernsteinfarbenes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr malzig süß, alkoholisch, belgische Hefe. Geschmack sehr malzig alkoholisch, fruchtig, würzig

PapaVillum (300) - Valby, DENMARK - FEB 28, 2014
33 cl, flaske, 12,0 % ABV, købt i Det Belgiske Ølhus på Jyllingevej i Vanløse, 1. marts 2014. Kobberfarvet ganske klar belgisk Barley Wine med knap 2 cm tyk offwhite skumkrone, medium boblende. Forsvinder til ca 1/2 cm efter et par minutter. Ganske pæn og rimelig kraftig aroma af hø, frugt, malt, humle og gær. Overdådig smag med sødme og masser af alkohol i slutningen af billedet. En virkelig "slowdrinking" beer! Fyldig, rund, varmende! Kulsyreindholdet er på et medium niveau, og det er vel det eneste, jeg kunne have lyst til at skrue på ved denne overlegne øl.

hohops (136) - Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2014
Bottle into a new-style Bush glass. Pours copper, orangey brown, small off-white head. Aromas of booze, raisin, toffee, caramel, vague chocolate notes, more booze. Taste has chewy toffee and caramel, lots of carbonation, very boozy, vinous, quite full mouthfeel, plenty of alcohol warmth. Nice, but you couldn’t have too much of it.

Profanity (13) - Espoo, FINLAND - FEB 23, 2014
In my opinion this is underrated. I loved this, really strong beer but hides it well with it’s fruity rich taste. Aromas of fruits like cherries, raisins and apricot, caramel. I have to get some more of this.
