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.

Case (242) - GERMANY - MAY 21, 2014
Pours clear gold with quickly disappearing large head. Fruity fresh aroma. Taste is very spicy, peppery, apricots, caramel, apples, lemons. Very complex! Alcohol is completely hidden and warms you. I love how spicy this is. Fantastic!

annunz123 (853) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 15, 2014
Coffee cake, caramel, and some alcohol in the aroma. Flavor is sweet and bready with some dark fruit and spice. Spice, a little bitterness, and a LOT of alcohol in the finish. Nice beer, but definitely a sipper.

9er (75) - Maryland, USA - MAY 3, 2014
Pint sold at Beltwat Liquors... This golden semi sweet brew is awesome. There is plenty of malty cereal, a luscious and carefully directed balance of hops that sit back as to not ruin the sip. The balance matures upon the palate and gives way to, rasin, vanilla, oaky caramel. Well done Scaldis.

33cl bottle at home. Clear amber brown with a small slightly off-white head. Medium to full body with moderate carbonation. Sweet with herbal bitterness. Brown sugar, caramel, herbs, yeast and some warming alcohol. A decent strong ale.

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.
