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.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - SEP 4, 2005
Bottle. Dark honey body with a thin foamy head. Nose-very floral and sweet with fruits. Taste-quite spicy. Notes of cotton candy, black pepper, alcohol, some bitter, apple, and some cirtic zest. This is pretty good. The spiciness is really nice and makes this enjoyable through and through.

UPDATED: JUN 30, 2008 Bottle. A bit hazy, medium amber colour. Dense, big white, head. Malts and honey in aroma. The alcohol is present from the first sip, but stays in the background until the aftertaste comes. The flavor starts quite sweet, but turns floral and toffeish with a hint of banana. Long, dry finish. Because of the alcohols? This is definately not a session beer, but nice indeed (050827)

biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - AUG 27, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2007 Cute little bottle with some strong ass ale. Quite clear and copper colored with a thin head. Clean, floral and fruity aroma of caramel, marzipan, dates, alcohol. Sweet and alcoholic, bitter and somewhat thin. Decent dark fruit and malt flavors that are overshadowed by the alcohol.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 25, 2005
Pours a clear medium amber with a nice tight head and fades slowly. Aroma is very sweet, caramel, cotton candy, toffee, molasses, slightly oxidized and only a bit spicy as the head faded a bit. Flavor is initially a bit sweet, but the alcohol pretty much kicks in right away with a harsh burning along with some woody earthy notes. Finish and mouthfeel seem dry due to the high abv.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 22, 2005
Drank in the company of Joey Capps and JadoreBlanche at Chester’s, in Hamilton, Ontario. Pours a cloudy orange body, with a a very thin coat of beige head to lock in the goodness. Lots of sediment flating around as well. Very nice looking brew. Aromas are of caramel, some sweet orange/citrus notes, corriander, very spicy. Taste is sweet, spices, orange rind, malty undertones, complex. Fairly smooth finish, full bodied, with a warming alcohol feeling. Great example.

legion242 (2344) - Richardson, Texas, USA - AUG 20, 2005
Not terrible. A little sweet- but slightly off set by some nice malt. The alcohol is very upfront. Not too surprising, considering the 12%. My head is gonna hirt tommorow!!

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 6, 2005
33cL bottle. Really one of the Belgian beers I like to go to when I have a chance . Nice cloudy dark copper with a good white head and weeping lacing. Bold malt and alcohol flavor with some spicy notes. It is easy to drink for a 12% beer which is a little disconcerting. It has a nice balancing bitterness at the end. Good beer!

Sweet honey nose, nice deep amber with a firm head. This is a beer betrayed by its strength. Although it starts well, the alcohol comes through too sharply in the finish. Astringent, ethanolly characters dominate, coating the tongue.
