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.

kramer (6306) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 1, 2005
8.3 oz bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy copper color, small compact head that settles to a thin film. Aroma is wonderful. Fruity, candy sweetness, citrusy hops, sweet malt, toffee, and some alcohol. Full body, cloying stickyness with very sweet finish. Tastes of Belgian candy sugar, fruitiness, alcohol, honey, and caramel malt. Not very in balance as far as malt to hop ratio goes, there is a little bitterness but it is far outweighed by malt. Mouthfeel is about what I expected, cloyingly sweet with lively carbonation, but with a creamy finish. The alcohol is rather noticable a few seconds after the swollow, so much so that it really makes you take a step back. OK beer overall, but not something worth seeking out.

tbookman (618) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 29, 2005
Medium orange color, a little hazy. Aroma is fruity with a whiff of whiskey. Flavor is strongly malty, with notes of pepper, yeast and a strong alcohol finish. Very bold and good.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - SEP 28, 2005
Gold/amber. Insignificant off-white head is gone in a flash. Sweet malt, dark dried fruit, touch of alcohol in the aroma. Same flavor. Sweet. Creamy with strong alcohol in the finish. Good brew, I’m anxious to try the prestige.

Orange pumpkin color (just like the label) Malt butterscotch smell. Malty Bitter balance is very nice but has an alcohol finish.

ABUSEDGOAT (2653) - California, USA - SEP 18, 2005
Pours a hazy copper body with a smallish head. Aroma is alcoholic, fruity, yeasty, with candy sugar as well. Flavor is the same with an emphasis on alcohol and candy sugar. Hints of caramel as well. bittersweet finish. It’s not bad, but I’ve had so many better Belgian strong ales that I will not be coming back to this for a while. $4 for 250cl. Why do they call this Scaldis?

nquantz (28) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 13, 2005
Cloudy, copper color with almost no head. Malty & fruity aroma. Full-bodied taste - slightly spicy, malty, with dry finish. The high abv is not that noticeable making this a dangerously drinkable beer!

bridge (659) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 13, 2005
Poured a slightly cloudy amber (surprise!!) colour, with a short and slightly persistent head. The aroma was bursting with sweet toffee and alcohol and a slight nuttiness. Concealing 12% is asking a bit much, and it showed in tasting - but not unpleasantly so. A bit of fire in the breath could have been dangerous around the fireplace, but even in winter there’s no need for a fire in these neck of the woods. The flavour realises the sweetness, but not as much as expected. Some good bitterness on the finish leaves a lasting aftertaste full of caramel nuts. A good beer, but I feel duped with only 250mL in my glass!

harrisoni (17574) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2013 Bottle. Dark orange, thin white head. Sweet orange/tangerine aroma, very sweet in mouth but then kick of hops and burning alcohol. Touches of whiskey and caramel and boiled sugar. A little unpleasant. 1.8 Bottle in Brussels. Boozy but kind of attractive.
