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.

sudomorph (994) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 5, 2015
375ml bottle from the lcbo. Pours a crystal clear copper/caramel with a bubbly head that fades to a ring quickly. Aroma has lots of dark fruits, caramel, hints of a woody oaky vanilla, spice, bubble gum, and dark candy sugar. Taste is a touch sweet but not cloying. Dark candy sugar, caramel, dark fruits, bit of alcohol from the 11.8%, and a drawn out, warm dark fruits ending. Medium-full body with a medium-high carbonation. A touch syrupy in the mouth with a lively mouth feel and a dry finish. Overall a nice beer. Lots of dark caramel, candy sugar, and a alcohol warmth. BB 15/06/2017.

Freaky_tiki (894) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 26, 2015
Pure Belgium beer candy. Rock candy, summer fair apples, & ripe fruit. Booze is higher than a kite but goes down smoother than creepy 70s blue eyed soul.

Bendrixian (1390) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 24, 2015
Lcbo purchase. Clear copper red pour. Toffee and boozy aroma with banana, caramel and malty base. Sort of big beer with a boozy kick and pepper, with a mid palate that is toffee and yeast and malty. Decent length if a bit sweet.

TheJester (2303) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 19, 2015
330 mL bottle. Amber, small head. Sweet, but balanced by the booze. Becomes increasingly appeaking as it warms. Nice beer. Didn’t seem to need any age.

vincentvega72 (216) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 17, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2015 Helder oranjekleurig bier met mooie peeling in het glas. Geuren van meloen, perzik. Vol, romig, smaken van banaan, appelsien, geel fruit. Alcohol zit goed weggestopt (nochtans 12% abv). Drinkt makkelijk weg. Wel een heel warme afdronk die je voelt tintelen in je mond. Lekker maar verraderlijk bier.
