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.

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.

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..

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.

Pours clear amber colour with white head. Visually low-medium carbonation. Aroma with noticable presence of an alcohol, at the same time you can detect caramel, honey and some spices. Flavor is similar: explicit presence of an alcohol, taste is sweet, with notes of honey, candy sugar and caramel, but at finish you can also detect hop esters: pine, grass, with some floral elements. Body is stick-mouthful, carbonation is low -soft. Proper belgian strong ale.

Clear amber body. Medium white head. Malty aroma, caramel and liquorice. Flavour of liquorice, malt and caramel. Medium sweet boozy finish. Medium body and carbo. Ok but too boozy for the style and my taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured a 2" beige head with decent retention. Body is a cross between golden yellow and amber and held to the light it shows clouding from fine particulates. Smell is really good with malt and caramel. Taste is rich with malt, caramel, and toffee, and it’s creamy and sweet. There’s a medium-long finish which feels like you just ate a sweet dessert.

Pours a clear orangey amber color, topped with a fairly small whit head. Quickly settling. Sweet malty aroma, lots of bubblegum notes, in a way quite funky aroma. Taste is sweet and malty, some fruity notes, strong, presence of alcohol obvious. I don’t like it - too strong and too sweet.
