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.

Poured a copper color with a long lasting medium sized off-white head. Aroma Is fruity and dusty. Apples and alcohol, although the alcohol is not distracting or bad. Sweet sugary flavor is full bodied and smooth in the mouth. Light bite on the finish which is very warming. Alcohol taste is minor but there. The bottle is too small. I drank this too fast.

Poured a light tan with a thin creamy head that quickly dissipated. Looks like my grandma’s apple cider. Smells like caramel apples and yeast. A lot of carbonation and a little too much alcohol. I know this is 12% but I have had other beers hide it better. Dry going down, with a green apple finish. Not bad but I expected better

ElJefe (553) - Rochester, New York, USA - OCT 29, 2005
Pours chestnut brown with a well retained off white head. Aroma is fruity and a bit vinous, with definite alcohol notes and a lot of caramel, and promises a complexity which doesn’t quite come through in the flavor. Flavor is initially sweet with toffee, caramel and dark fruits (most notably prunes), but dries out quite nicely in the finish with a good amount of bitterness. Full, syrupy mouth feel. Definite alcohol presence throughout.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 27, 2005
Pours a lightly effervescent clear bronze with a creamy coating of very well-lacing bone-colored head. Sweet candied caramel aroma has some light bready yeasty complexity. Body starts with a viscous malty sweetness with a fine thread of carbonation throughout and a touch of spruce and musk. Finishes slightly drier and with some warming notes. This could use a little more complexity and balance to help hide the alcohol.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - OCT 22, 2005
Bottle. Pours a rich amber with an aroma of stale leaves and copper. Flavor is a rush of alcohol and yeast, with a biting spicy finish. Palate is smooth. Decent, but not worth the price.

toccata (70) - grembergen, BELGIUM - OCT 19, 2005
Warm amber color, yellow-beige foam. Cognac aroma, butter carramel; malts, nuts and some fruits. Taste is full, nutty sweet and slight spicy. Butter caramel and cognac like finish.

Magjayran (1378) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 19, 2005
Poured into a Scaldis glass. Pours an amber color with a thin head. Very malty aroma with a little fruit. A hint of citrus and pears in the taste. Lots of malt. Strong alcohol finish. Fairly boring and way too expensive.

TheEnemy (564) - Chicago, USA - OCT 16, 2005
250ml bottle.
Pours hazy auburn with noticeable sediment and an active, thin fizzy white head that slowly dissipates. Clean, sweet slightly caramel malt aroma with a slight hop spice. Flavor is sweet, malty, some caramel, a bit of sugar and medium hop bitter. Nutty yeast and sweet aftertaste. Alcohol is well-hidden. Smooth, highly effervescent bubbly palate. Always hits the spot. One of my favorate standard Belgian ales.

The flavor does seem a bit direct, heavy. But much enjoyment compared to the standard or even good beer. Brandy beer. Dillenburger. Makes you feel nice, though. That is it fokes you up. Love the big punch in a small bottle. Sucker punched.

Bottle from Beers of Europe. Last time I had this it disinhibited me enough to steal the glass from the Clockwork Brewery. Sorry guys - you have permission to search me on the way out in future. So, poured into ’my’ Bush glass it looks glorious - amber with a creamy head. Lovely aroma of fruity hop, alcohol, yeast, caramelly malt. Little bit sweet in the mouth. Lovely warming glow as it goes down. Very nice.
