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.

adamnowek (2108) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 11, 2017
Clear, dark amber colour. No head. Smells like booze. Tastes like booze and cough syrup. Bad.

Scrumpy369 (573) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 6, 2017
Bottle at pater marcus. Clear orange colour no head. Looks like a soft drink. Nose is booze, light banana and bubblegum aromas. Taste is bubblegum, banana and esters. Low booze. Fast finish. Too much booze for me.

Frothmeister (753) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 4, 2017
330ml bottle. 11.8%. In the cellar for a year. Pours amber with a light haze, along with sediment being thrown around by the carbonation with a creme coloured cap. SMELLS sweet. Caramel, raisin, dried apricots, orange hard candy, faint bread notes, and yeast. Yes. It tastes sweet too, with sultana raisin, various dried fruit, spice, and some booziness that moves into similar notes with hard water, and faint orange peel in the sweet finish. It’s alright, but it’s another sugar Belgian bomb I’m not likely to purchase again.

This seems a bit of a novelty beer. Far too strong for anything but booziness to come through. Airfix glue/peardrops on the nose, orangey port in the mouth.

GemmeDeReve (36) - FRANCE - DEC 21, 2016
Bière ambrée, un peu trouble, sans mousse, un nez de fruits, un peu alcoolisée au nez, assez pétillante en bouche, un goût d’alcool assez désagréable mais qui ne reste pas en bouche par la suite... Heureusement... Rien de transcendantal. On reste surtout sur le goût de l’alcool... En même temps 12°...

Shared bottle pour is pale amber and clear with an off-white head. Aroma and taste of malt, caramel, and alcohol. Sharp boozy finish. Did not finish.

gormio (45) - FINLAND - DEC 6, 2016
Väri on kivan punertava. Tuoksukin on ihan ok, hedelmää, makeaa. Mutta maku aika karsea. Alkoholi puskee läpi. Paloviinaa.

kubmal (242) - POLAND - DEC 2, 2016
Light amber colour, nice lacing. Aroma is quite strong: banana, fruits, caramel, after some time i could also sense some paint thinner. Taste is sweet, spicy, alcohol is surprisingly well hidden, low bitterness, some hoppy notes. Not bad, but one dimensional.

darbeer75 (702) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - NOV 30, 2016
Aroma: sickly sweet with apple juice notes; Appearance: clear amber pour with thin white head that lingers; Taste: follows nose, unfortunately. Very sweet with slight booziness at end. Not good. Palate: heavy body with long, sweet finish. Overall: will not get again.
