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.

Hazy amber, rich cotton-like head. Big, raw, estery aroma. Pears, apricot, sugar and alcohol. Strong fruity and malty flavour pears, oranges, almond and pepper. Yeast and hops in the long warm finish.

joergen (23510) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 3, 2005
Golden colour with off-white head. Sweet aroma with lots of fruit, alcohol and spices. Powerful flavour dominated by spices, alcohol and hops. Nice, but not the best belgian strong ale.

Hazy peach/orange color, off-white head. Fruity nose. Fruity with alcoholic burn but pleasant. Some hops in the finish. Similar to some East European strong lagers (maybe to Frederik Tosin 12% as sayravai claims:)) !

highlandlad (1434) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - JAN 23, 2005
A complex classic. Pours the bronze colour that prompted the switch from its previous name, Bush 12%, to Bush Amber/Ambree. The short tan head quickly disappears. Gorgeous sherry-like aroma that betrays the high abv. Some fruit and caramel notes. The palate is full and almost syrupy. It’s sweet and nutty, with lots of alcohol up front. The finish is wonderfully complex - dry and satisfying with orange-citric characters. Made for sipping, rather than swigging. The alcohol becomes a bit fierce towards the end of the bottle but those first few sips are enchanting. (Bottle)

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - JAN 19, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2005 Bottled. Clear dark amber colour. Small head. Caramelly, alcoholic aroma. Very sweet, caramelly with hints of raisins. The high alcohol shines through. It is okay, but maybe too sweet. I had no problem with the alcoholic flavour, as I´m not that opposed to it, and like spirits, too, but in combination with too much sweetness this influenced my experience in a somewhat negative way. Still it is a quite an enjoyable sipping beer.

Pours a darker, transparent amber with a small head, leaving lace. Light honey aroma. Weak malt also. Alcohol stings the nostrils. Spicy hops and watery malt. ALcohol too. Alcohol becomes evident after a few sips. At first fairly sweet, becoming warmer & dry from the alcohol. This is an interesting beer. It wasn’t that great but I enjoyed it. Big alcoholic kick, too.

This is a good Belgian Strong Ale. Caramel, slightly bitter, and some fruit flavors. Finishes bitter sweet, warming, and chewy.

well balanced considering it’s abv. dark amber with a thin white head and nice lacing. very fruity, plums, citrus. it’s pretty malty with some notciable taste of coffee and chocoalte raisin. there is a bit a of a taste of alcohol, which is to be expected, but it is not unpleasant.

Bottled. Crystal clear orange color with a small white head. The aromas are of cherries and malt with hints of tartness. Huge caramel sweet flavor with a slight fruity tartness to it. Almost overpowering alcohol warmth hits you about halfway in and then stays on your tongue like a shot of bourbon.
