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.

Bouteille de 330ml d’ambrée vieillie 18mois. Arôme puissante d’anis de caramel et notes floral. Au goût c’est très puissant mais bien équilibré. On retrouve une petite acidité un gout bien sucré et des notes de caramel et d’anis en fin de bouche on retrouve la puissance de

Orange/amber hazy color, with medium and sand colored head. Medium to low carbonation. Body is full with creamy texture. Aroma is biscuit, honey, caramel, spicy, malt and alcohol. Taste is sweet, dried plums, yeast and almost no bitterness. Aftertaste is sweet, malty and bitter. A very complex beer...

Filipbeer (123) - - MAY 8, 2015
Beautiful ambar color with short head. Interesting and intense aroma. Sweet fruits (apple an pear) with some hoppy and creamy notes. In mouth this beer is a beast. Strong taste, mainly sweet but with a good bitterness, and extreme mouthfeel: warm because of the alcohol and full bodied. Retro-nasal aroma is liquorous. Great belgium beer despite the high alcohol degree.

KW92 (602) - WARSAW, POLAND - MAY 7, 2015

WYGLĄD: Barwa ciemno bursztynowa, klarowne. Piana drobna, średniej wysokości, krótka.
AROMAT: Intensywny. Korzenno-owocowy. W tle przyprawy i alkohol (wyraźny)
SMAK: Słodkie. Słodowo-karmelowe. Lekko korzenne oraz przyprawowe. Alkohol wyczuwalny, ale nie natarczywy.
OGÓLNIE: Potężne przez zawartość alkoholu, który idealnie komponuje się z całością. Dobre, ale nic więcej.

SkillsFactory (196) - ITALY - MAY 1, 2015
Ambrata carica, limpida, schiuma compatta ma poco persistente che lascia un velo senza mai sparire del tutto. Corpo pieno, carbonatazione medio-alta. Aroma di uva passa, caramello e lievito, qualche nota di mela. Al palato uva passa, caramello e leggero amaro luppolato, bella nota alcolica sul finale (molto lungo).

0.33l bottle. Copper color with quickly disappearing white head. Aroma is malty, caramel, candy sugar, raisins and alcohol. Taste is heavy sweet with alcohol notes. Full body. Overall it’s nice Belgian ale, but alcohol is slightly too offensive.

Bottle. Beautiful orange copper color with stable foam head and vertical carbonation bubbles. Nice. Aroma is Speciale Belge with notes of apple juice, cider, hay, hint of lemon. Ok. Taste is quite boozy, but fruity. Apple juice, rose hip, hint of marzipan, cherry liquor. Development is hairspray, boozy sourness. Tingles the nose (!). Aftertaste is apple juice, dry. Too much alcohol for me.

hrabren (248) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 19, 2015
April 11th 2015: tasting@Svijet piva, Zagreb. Shared with Dami, Habek and Radoš. I drank this back in 2008 in Brussels, but didn’t rate it then. Clear amber color, off-white head, diminished quickly. Caramel and raisins in aroma, alcohol kick just like in Bush blonde, but slightly less intense, sweet, woody. Warming, bitter, alcoholic, long finish. Pretty good.
