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.

250ml bottle pooured into a Trappist glass. Pours amber with a average size fizzy light brown head that diminishes rather quickly leaving no lacing. The body is clear with carbonation bubbles floating to the top. The aroma is strawy and grainy with a light yeastyness along with some alcohol. The flavor is first off caramel malts with a touch of toffee along with a moderate belgian yeastyness. There is a slight bitterness and alcohol finish in the end. The body is medium with a creamy texture and soft carbonation.

0,33L bottle (from Wine of Galilee). Pours clear amber with beige head. The head stays for a moment. Aroma is sweet, caramel, burnt sugar, fruits, alcohol. Flavor is very sweet, caramel, fruits, some citric notes. Flavor has some alcohol, but it is mainly covered by sweetness. Finish has some bitterness. Overall: ok brew if you want to get drunk fast.

rami_pl (15) - Warszawa, POLAND - DEC 17, 2014
Aromat owocowo-karmelowo-alkoholowy. Niestety alkohol wpada w rozpuszczalnik. Piana dosc skapa, ale ladna i fajnie sie buduje po zamieszaniu pokalem (notabene - fajny ten dedykowany). Smak analogiczny do aromatu, alkohol dominuje. I to ostatnie psuje niemala czesc przyjemnosci.

Iznogud (832) - CROATIA - DEC 16, 2014
Bottle, 330 ml from Svijet Piva, Zagreb. Pours orange to amber with white head. Sweet fruity and spicy aroma. Sweet, caramel malty fruity, bit yeasty flavor. Warming, but not too aggressive alcohol. Nice one.

bewyder (135) - FRANCE - NOV 28, 2014
Alcool qui se fait sentir mais ne se fait pas trop agressif au goût même si ca tape au final. Pas mauvaise mais pas trop convaincu non plus, arômes malt caramel pas trop à mon goût. A retester. Bouteille bue au bar La Tête à l’envers, Vincennes, France, le 03/10/2013.

Well I had it from one of my night market tonight but it’s available in many pubs in Brussels. Cool aroma :-)

dnicolaescu (939) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - NOV 24, 2014
BOTTLE 33 CL. Lots of malts and sugars, the magnitude of Samichlaus, a nice dried apricot fruity accent and, of course, alcohol. The alcohol is quite strong, but so is the sweetness, so they both balance each other nicely. A beer to sip.

Clear amber color. Very sweet caramel aroma. Taste follows with some sweet malts. Pleasant at first but has a pretty nasty, lingering aftertaste. Definitely not my style.
