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.

25cl bottle, at home @10°C Golden colour with white head. Sweet aroma with alcohol and spices. Flavour dominated by alcohol and hops but nice. Not the best strong ale I had but above average.

Ambrée limpide et mousse blanche, à la manière des bières d’abbaye industrielles. Nez de malts dorés, liquoreux et fruité, douceur, pointe d’épice et fine acidité. En bouche, subtil de manière surprenante, on aurait pas dit.Raisin, sucres, poivre, petite acidité.Liqueur, alcool présent mais les 12 degrés se font relativement discrets. Plutôt très sympa.Une bière dite "extrême" mais tout à fait subtil et qui n’a rien de trop "bourrin".

Bottled. An amber coloured beer which pours with hardly any head. The aroma is full of warming alcohol and buttery fruity smoothness. The taste is extremely pleasant, masking the alcohol content well. There is a similarity IMO to many good English barley wines with a butterscotch smoothness in the mouth and a sweet hoppiness. This is a truly wonderful beer.

0,33 l hana @ Alchemister Salzburg. Pronssinruskea kirkas. Tuoksussa rommirusinaa, makeaa mallasta. Maku lyhyesti: huhhuh! Pidemmin: Säilöttyä hedelmää, mallasta, rommia, liikaa makeutta, aivan liikaa alkoholia. Phuh..

Kavu (3128) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 16, 2015
0,33l on tap @ Alchimiste Belge, Salzburg. Pours clear amber with a low head. Aroma is sweet malts, dark fruits and alcohol. Flavor is very sweet malts, rum, some dark fruits and plenty of metallic alcohol. Hard to drink.

Beaucoup d’alcool pour pas grand chose... Le nez est vraiment prometteur : malgré l’alcool ce qui est normal à l’ouverture de la bouteille, de belles notes de raisin et de pomme ! Par contre, la bouche est bien en dessous de ces promesses. On a beau laisser respirer la bière, la boire à température ambiante, l’alcool est agressif et laisse peu de place pour le palais et les arômes. On sent toutefois derrière ce corps très présent et le sucre (pas trop présent pour le coup ce qui est appréciable) quelques notes qu’on avait repéré au nez mais sans plus. Plutôt déçu je dois dire. Dommage parce qu’encore une fois, au nez comme au regard, le produit avait l’air maginifique.

Vrij zwaar bier, dat is te merken in de smaak. Deze is vrij zoet, caramel, honing, suikers. Maar niet slecht. Drinkt lekker weg en voor een Frans zwaar bier best wel te drinken.
