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. Pretty sure this bottle has some age on it. Cloudy dark amber pour with no head to speak of. Rich malt nose, yeast, cloves, dark fruit, alcohol. Full bodied due to ABV, very low carbonation. Warning finish is lingering and faintly syrupy. Not bad.

A surprise discovery through my friend who's from Tournai where the origin of this beer is. Very strong and pleasant aroma, I just couldn't have enough of it! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

33 cl. [email protected] in Tulip [email protected] 10 degrees C. Pours clear orange with fair off white head with decent retention and some lacing. Aroma of alcohol, bubble gum and caramel malt. Taste one dimensional, sweet and warm, again with the caramel malt dominating and alcohol too present. Good, full mouthfeel and medium carbonation does not make up for the rather boring, alcohol dominated taste that leaves a sweetish, candy like aftertaste. Don’t get the point of 12% ABV when there is no elegance. Not a beer for me.

Måske nok Belgiens stærkest øl. Men den er desværre noget sprittet. Det gør at smagen aldrig træder i karakter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From old tasting notes. Cloudy copper color with a yellow hue. Big beige head. Earthy malt aroma with traces of yeastiness and citrus. Rich mouth coating malt palate. Hearty bittersweet ale flavor. Splendid dry hoppy finish. Long bitter aftertaste.

Bottle. Copper colour with a small off-white head. Lots of caramel in the aroma a long with some fruits, yeast and alcohol. Taste is the same. Heavy sweet, light to moderate yeast spicy. Hides ABV quite well with all the strong flavours.

Mooi biertje met een stevige smaak, zoet en niet bitter. Voor mij de lekkerste Bush variant. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Trappist glass 33cl, fresh taped. When I tried it bottled, again the alcohol aftertaste was overhelming. But tapped, this nice orange beer gets a more nice and smooth taste and aftertaste, malty and yeasty.
