COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Bush Amber Triple is a traditional Bush Amber which has been bottle-refermented in a hot chamber during 3 weeks. Due to this refermentation, its bitter-sweet taste is even strenghened and its malted with nuts aromas more powerful. The beer is naturally cloudier. The Bush Amber is proposed in a luxury 75 cl embossed bottle with a champagne cork which, while keeping in line with the 25cl bottles, give them an incontestable qualitative style

Another that doesn't disappoint. If you're looking for a smooth but crisp amber that packs a punch, this is the stuff! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Voici donc une triple créée pour commémorer une triple - la même !! Mais nous sommes au pays de Magritte, pas de problème … En bref, cette triple ambrée bouchonnée a été créée pour célébrer les 75 ans de la Bush ambrée, elle même une triple (s’il en est ..). Niveau abv de 12 %, mais mon exemplaire les avait dépassé allègrement … En effet ma bouteille était à 32 mois après sa date limite, et en pleine phase de madérisation. Je la prie encore de m’excuser de l’avoir dérangée, mais je devais célébrer ma 900ème bière belge au ratebeer …" A circonstance exceptionnelle, bière exceptionnelle" disait mon grand-père, qui n’en ratait pas une … Enfin, dans cette introduction, signalons aussi la sympathie d’une bière bouchonnée en format 75cl , surtout quand on s’appelle "corky" rory … Couleur ambrée sombre tirant sur l’acajou, à la clarté nette. Bulles très fines, par centaines, partout. Superbe, et preuve manifeste que la bière était encore bien vivante... Mousse qui s’en tient à une corolle le long des parois du verre (mais c’est déjà le cas souvent de la Bush ambrée "normale"...). Arômes de cèdre, pruneau, vin cuit, vigne vierge, pêche de vigne. 1ère bouche huileuse, gourmande à l’entame de classe mondiale en madérisation. Arrière-bouche sublime vin/fût/bois/fruits confits. 2ème à l’ensemble malt/fruits mûrs/épices. Arrière-bouche ample, vaste, très longue. Toute la suite relève du domaine du rêve pur, tant les mots ne peuvent satisfaire à décrire une dégustation pareille. Jambes huileuses. Levure Dubuisson, décuplée par son travail sur les années. Alcool qui était loin au-dessus du titre affiché, mon exemplaire devait se trouver entre 13 et 14% , tranquille et sûr de lui !!!! Finale au 7ème ciel. CONCLUSION : nous sommes ici dans l’extra-monde de la bière. Le vieillissement appliqué comme un art sur ce type de bières, exactement comme l’affinage des grands fromages, conduit à un univers extra-terrestre.... Le sublime n’est pas un vain mot .. En résumé, en Belgique, nous avons des bières religieuses et des non-religieuses .. et celle-ci est une non-religieuse mais strictement religieuse !!! Comprenne qui pourra !!! Personnellement j’ai un ami décédé qui aurait compris … Cette 900ème bière belge lui est dédiée.

I_LUV_BEER (175) - - MAY 28, 2016
Served in a snifter from a 750ml bottle. Pours slightly hazy amber with a thick off-white head. Aroma is really complex: bread, dried fruits, raisins, caramel, winey with notes of honey and subtle alcohol. Taste is caramel, bread, molasses, grass, warm alcohol sensation within bitter-sweet finish. Full body with medium carbonation, oily texture. Warming feeling from high ABV is laced through from start to finish. Extremely nice, rich and complex beer.

Scaldis Refermentee. Something special for my 150th review. 75th Anniversary brew, im not sure if it is a Quad. The cork goes off with a huge pop and nectar like scent fills the air. Pours into my Duvel tulip with a nice active white head that leaves attractive lacing. The beer is a sleek amber with hints of almost rosy pink, a stunning brew. It is clear and you can see tons of bubble emanating from the D logo etched in the bottom of the glass. There are also floater abound. The nose has some caramel and vanilla, along with sweet alcohol like port, some fruit, and genuine Belgian yeast twang. Taste is a bit like the standard Scaldis, with that heavy sweetness and alcohol presence. But this one is smoother than the original and the flavors jump on your tongue a bit more nicely.v There are some spices floating in there too, with a nice yeast twang. It is a big assed brew, and where other brews of this caliber might falter this one delivers with some insane drinkability. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 12-15-2009 05:06:52

Lore (2169) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 26, 2014
amber colour, moderate sized off-white head, which lasts for several minutes; aroma of dried fruits (peach, some raisin), hints of apple, biscuit, caramel, wooden notes, earthy-wine cellar-like yeast, maybe some vanilla and alcohol; taste of raisin, peach, intensive malty sweetness, some apple and spicy alcohol; much more complex than the simple Bush Ambrée

Brought this home from the local beer store (Friar Tuck’s). Excellent full body, slightly fruity taste that was a pleasure to drink. Also had a wonderful cloudy amber look.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6723) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 7, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2011 Sampled from a 750 ml corked brown bottle this beer poured an orange-amber color with some floaters and a huge yellow-white head that lingered and produced great lacing. The aroma was yeasty and sugary with notes of lemon, apple and cinnamon. The flavor was strongly yeasty with some funk and sugar and notes of honey, lemon, apple, bourbon and pepper. A bit boozy. The finish was long yeasty, sugary and citric. Thick and full body. Very good.

superspak (4669) - Michigan, USA - APR 1, 2014
750 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 2015. Pours moderately cloudy deep orange copper color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense off white head with solid retention, that reduces to a thin lace cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big golden raisin, plum, fig, cherry, pear, apple, caramel, candi sugar, toast, biscuit, clove, pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and malt sweetness; with great strength. Taste of big golden raisin, plum, fig, pear, apple, caramel, candi sugar, toast, biscuit, clove, pepper, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of golden raisin, plum, fig, pear, apple, caramel, candi sugar, toast, biscuit, clove, pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity and big robustness of fruity/spicy yeast and deep malt flavors; with a great malt/yeast flavor balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and fairly full bodied; with a smooth, slick, and lightly syrupy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is an awesome Belgian strong ale! All around great complexity and robustness of fruity/spicy yeast ester and deep malt sweetness; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.
