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.

Kosmokrator (813) - - SEP 1, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2015 Nebuloso color arancio con uno spesso strato di schiuma biancastra mediamente persistente. Aroma dolce con note di pesca, biscotto e pane fresco; gusto robusto grazie all’abv, ben bilanciato tra dolce e amaro con un finale amarognolo e pulito, un po’ troppo alcolica nel retrogusto. Corposa e vinosa, con una buona effervescenza e una buona persistenza.

Amberkleurig bier met wit schuim. Geur: moutzoetig, brood, wat rozijn, alcoholisch. Smaak: moutzoet, alcoholisch, vineus, zelfs wat cognac. Redelijk volmondig. Medium koolzuurprikkel. Afdronk: licht bitter en zoetig.

Beachmaster (414) - Oklahoma, USA - JUN 19, 2016
Bottle into a tulip. Pours a hazy amber with a small white head. Nose is caramel, and the taste follows. Very nice caramel flavor without being overly sweet or cloying. Creamy mouth feel with a short finish. Well balanced and quite tasty.

superspak (4391) - Michigan, USA - JUN 3, 2016
330 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 3/10/2016. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy deep orange/amber color, with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big lemon, orange, peach, apricot, mango, pear, pineapple, pepper, clove, honey, brown sugar, biscuit, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, dark/beady malt, and light earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of big lemon, orange, peach, apricot, mango, pear, pineapple, pepper, clove, honey, brown sugar, biscuit, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Moderate yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange, peach, apricot, mango, pear, pineapple, pepper, clove, honey, brown sugar, biscuit, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, dark/beady malt, and light earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/spiciness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from yeast spiciness as well. Medium carbonation and medium-full body; with a smooth, moderately creamy/bready, and lightly sticky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is fairly well hidden with a small warmth lingering after the finish, with no booziness. Overall this is a very nice Belgian strong pale ale. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, dark/beady malt, and light earthy hop flavors; very smooth and easy to sip on for the huge ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

Parmenion777 (110) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2016 Pours a clear light golden amber colour with a thick off white head. Caramelised banana, vanilla and raisin aroma. Despite the strength the alcohol is nicely balanced by sweet caramel malt, raisin, plum and vanilla flavours. A nice warming slightly spicy bitter finish.

ardeo (108) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - MAY 4, 2016
Bottle 330ml. Couleur cuivrée limpide et mousse blanche irréprochables. Arômes caramel, raisin, fruits divers dont agrumes. Bouche fraîche épicée, sucre (pas trop), fruits. Les 12%annoncés ne se sentent pas vraiment ...sauf si vous en avez bu 2 ou 3 car vous avez apprécié et à la première vous avez senti -ne mentez-pas- l’alcool (porto???)!

LeWorm (53) - FRANCE - MAY 1, 2016
Nez alcool et malts caramelisés. En bouche on retrouve les malts, l’alcool et pas mal d’épices: c’est assez complexe. Palais sucré et huileux.

Demens (160) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 20, 2016
0,33l bottle. Beutiful clear amber/orange colour with quicklydisappearing white head becouse of the high alcohol %. Aroma: Sweet fruity, banana, candy sugar, alcohol, honey. Taste: Very sweet start a bit bitter too but it has a warming mouthfeel. Oily texture. Full bodied with soft carbonation. Surprisngly bitter finish. A good beer, but not as good as a usual belgian strong ale. The high alcohol% is okey not too harsh.

Helsdon (342) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 17, 2016
First sip said booze! Took that second look at the label and saw 11.8% Ahhhhh. Past the booze, which isn’t overwhelming considering the percentage, you get some sweet caramel malts, some mild bready yeasts, nothing notable on the hops front. Overall an alright beer, a boozy bonanza, but not exceptional.
