3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle shared by Tmoney99 (I believe) from old backlog notes. Pours a hazy copper brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet caramel malts, sweet fruits, apricots, dates, a noticeable nutty character, mild bitterness, this really keeps coming back to sweet, ok, but I’m glad I didn’t pay for it.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Orangée, ruby, belle carbo collet fin et persistant.
Aromes complexes, subtil mélange d’orange, caramel, bois, whisky et quelques notes aigres.
Vive et chaude en bouche, les notes d’agrumes viennent se fondre dans le caramel de la finale. Le taux d’alcool ne passe pas inaperçu...

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Refermented, 75 cl version of Bush Ambrée to celebrate the 75th birthday of the brand in 2008. Bottle shared with British Ratebeer editor in Ghent. Creamy, off-white, stable foam (the latter all the more so in view of the alcohol strength), colour a deep and pure amber with a lightly brownish hue, misty. Powerfully perfumed aroma of orange juice, honey, cider, whisky, cloves, gingerbread, lemon peel, white chocolate; sweet taste with medium carbonation, very citrussy fruity, soft and mellow maltiness (honey, caramel), subdued yeastiness with spicy notes, lots of warming, amaretto-like alcohol in the finish without becoming astringent. I’ve been an admirer of this brand for a long time and this is a nice treat to the fans.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottiglia da 750, colore ambrato scuro con una schiuma poco persistente e fina, l’aroma richiama molto la frutta e il vino, al sapore risalta molto il malto e lo speziato poi si sentono tutti i suoi 12% di ABV, forse anche troppo per i miei gusti
