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.

On draught at Roscoe’s for Belgian Beer Summit. 2009 vintage. Dark clear golden color. Aroma is sweet candied fruits with a pronounced alcohol burn. Taste is candied peach and berry, brown sugar, and slight bitter hop note. Finishes with a pronounced sweetness and a boozy kick.

25cl bottle, at home @10°C Golden colour with white head. Sweet aroma with alcohol and spices. Flavour dominated by alcohol and hops but nice. Not the best strong ale I had but above average.

Bottle labeled as Scaldis sampled at Classic City Brew Fest 2014. Pours a clear golden brown with bubbly white head. Aroma and taste are big on the sweet malts with a hint of fruity yeast esters and booziness. A bit too much on the booze without much else going on.

Excalibur123 (108) - Soria, SPAIN - APR 14, 2014
Vierte color amarillo anaranjado con escasa cabeza de espuma que desaparece al momento, aromas a caramelo, albaricoque, manzana golden y licor; en boca entrada de trago potente y licorosa; apreciándose el alcohol al paso por garganta, trago corto sus doce grados hacen que haya que beberla despacio, buen cuerpo y carbónico ligero, pos gusto seco y dulce, cerveza demasiado alcohólica y no ofrece matices reseñables , mucho alcohol y poco más.

Dark orange body. Almost clear. Off white thin head. Malty, fruity aroma. Caramel, toffee, some spice. Taste is sweet, spicy, very light bitterness. Carbonation is light. Aftertaste is a light bite from the alcohol.

330ml bottle at home. Pours clear copper, thick white head. Very light aromas, dark sugar maybe. Taste is much the same. Strangely light and thin. Sweet finish.

Une très bonne bière d’après moi. Bon, on sent bien les 12% ce qui la rend dangereuse. Caramel très présent, sucrée mais bien contrebalancé par l’alcool. A boire dans son verre pour encore plus de plaisir de dégustation !

Golden color with very little smell and thick white head. The taste has too much alcohol in, which combined with the kind of Belgian sweetness doesn't make it so attractive. Kind of bitterness in the palate and aftertaste. Overall nothing special, except the high degree of alcohol...
