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.

Pours a lightly effervescent clear bronze with a creamy coating of very well-lacing bone-colored head. Sweet candied caramel aroma has some light bready yeasty complexity. Body starts with a viscous malty sweetness with a fine thread of carbonation throughout and a touch of spruce and musk. Finishes slightly drier and with some warming notes. This could use a little more complexity and balance to help hide the alcohol.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - OCT 22, 2005
Bottle. Pours a rich amber with an aroma of stale leaves and copper. Flavor is a rush of alcohol and yeast, with a biting spicy finish. Palate is smooth. Decent, but not worth the price.

toccata (70) - grembergen, BELGIUM - OCT 19, 2005
Warm amber color, yellow-beige foam. Cognac aroma, butter carramel; malts, nuts and some fruits. Taste is full, nutty sweet and slight spicy. Butter caramel and cognac like finish.

Magjayran (1378) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 19, 2005
Poured into a Scaldis glass. Pours an amber color with a thin head. Very malty aroma with a little fruit. A hint of citrus and pears in the taste. Lots of malt. Strong alcohol finish. Fairly boring and way too expensive.

TheEnemy (564) - Chicago, USA - OCT 16, 2005
250ml bottle.
Pours hazy auburn with noticeable sediment and an active, thin fizzy white head that slowly dissipates. Clean, sweet slightly caramel malt aroma with a slight hop spice. Flavor is sweet, malty, some caramel, a bit of sugar and medium hop bitter. Nutty yeast and sweet aftertaste. Alcohol is well-hidden. Smooth, highly effervescent bubbly palate. Always hits the spot. One of my favorate standard Belgian ales.

The flavor does seem a bit direct, heavy. But much enjoyment compared to the standard or even good beer. Brandy beer. Dillenburger. Makes you feel nice, though. That is it fokes you up. Love the big punch in a small bottle. Sucker punched.

CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - OCT 10, 2005
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Last time I had this it disinhibited me enough to steal the glass from the Clockwork Brewery. Sorry guys - you have permission to search me on the way out in future. So, poured into ’my’ Bush glass it looks glorious - amber with a creamy head. Lovely aroma of fruity hop, alcohol, yeast, caramelly malt. Little bit sweet in the mouth. Lovely warming glow as it goes down. Very nice.

The aroma had slight citrus, caramel/brown sugar, malts,a nd light fruit. The beer poured a light brownish orange color w/ golden yellow highlights; no head and lacing. The flavor had light fruit, oranges, brown sugar, and malts. The mouthfeel was light and creamy w/ a slight wet finish.

kramer (5800) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 1, 2005
8.3 oz bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy copper color, small compact head that settles to a thin film. Aroma is wonderful. Fruity, candy sweetness, citrusy hops, sweet malt, toffee, and some alcohol. Full body, cloying stickyness with very sweet finish. Tastes of Belgian candy sugar, fruitiness, alcohol, honey, and caramel malt. Not very in balance as far as malt to hop ratio goes, there is a little bitterness but it is far outweighed by malt. Mouthfeel is about what I expected, cloyingly sweet with lively carbonation, but with a creamy finish. The alcohol is rather noticable a few seconds after the swollow, so much so that it really makes you take a step back. OK beer overall, but not something worth seeking out.
