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.

auderale (605) - Minot, North Dakota, USA - JAN 16, 2006
25cl bottle. A very strong beer. Hazy amber with a strong aroma. Definite hints of fruit. Not sure about this one. I may have to have it again sometime by itself instead of mixing it with some others.

25 cL bottle from www.belgianshop.com. Pours golden orange with a small white rocky head. Yeast (sour earth, leather) and light malt (hay, straw) aroma with peach and apple notes. Alcohol and yeast flavor, warming malt, toffee notes and a spicy dry finish. Medium bodied and fizzy palate.

awaisanen (1304) - Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 14, 2006
Ruddy-amber transulcent pour with an even soapy head. Aroma is very light, mostly orange with a hint of spice. Flavors are much more potent than the nose - orange, cinimmon and spice mostly. Finish is sweet and spicy, but not overly complex.

Unimpressed. This is one of the belgian beers that tastes like socks and ass. It’s a dirty amber color, the aroma is of skunk, and it was too expensive.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 10, 2006
Light orange color, little yellow head. Fruits, sweetness, medium warming alcohol in aroma with mild spices. Almost full bodied. Medium to strong alcohol, fruits and mild spices in flavor, alcohol dominates aftertaste, too much though.

AndrewM (126) - Waco (Buckle of the Bible Belt), Texas, USA - JAN 3, 2006
250mL bottle from Hall’s Grocery / Colleyville TX (best before 6/07). A clear amber-gold pour with no head. Nose is fruity, not quite juicy fruit gum, but almost... with hints of alcohol. Flavor is lightly fruity, malts, with alcohol in the finish. Warming as it goes down the throat. It lingers in the mouth for a while. Alcohol is nicely hidden, not as "hot" as I thought it would appear.

MoritzF (9564) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JAN 2, 2006
(bottle) Hazy amber colour with a small foamy beige head. Sweet malty nose with caramel, yeasts and alcohol. Sweet flavour, full bodied, sweet malty, caramelly taste with a shy fruity tinge (oranges, peaches) and a strong malty, oily, a bit syrupy alcoholic finish. The alcohol is well integrated.

EXCELLANT!!! very nice job by Dubuisson. poured a gorgeous brick color. with a nice fizzy head that left nice lacing. aromas consisted of caramel, burnt sugar, fruit, yeast, and a bit spicy. went down extremely smooth considering the 12% ABV. extremely good. be careful, it will sneak up on you. will defenitely purchase again.

Pailhead (6526) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - DEC 26, 2005
Bottle: Aroma contains lots of fruit with candy sugar, toffee, and suprising no alcohol. Pours a dull cloudy orangish-brown with a fizzy off-white head that diminishes quickly. Lots of fruit and yeast, light candy sugar and and hints of raisin up front. Light toffee in the middle. Finishes with a light flowery bitterness and a big alcohol bite. More warmth than actual flavor, but the flavor is there.
