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.

Amber. Head that comes and sort of sticks around. Nose: caramel, barley, beef stock and concord grapes. Flavours are tasty, much crier than the nose. All in all like a belgian barley wine. G-rat

One really good ale. I drunk it after 4 years age in my cellar. A lot of honey aromas, honey complexity, hoppy, caramel taste and aroma. Like a liquior it was. But I know it in a fresh bottle also. It is huge. You cannot feel the alcohol and the heat so much as in the fresh version. It is sweet and thick.

rumore (765) - Rimini, ITALY - SEP 6, 2017
From the tap at FOB, Rimini, Italy. Pours fairly transparent gold worth very fine white foam. Aroma is sweet and rather alcoholic. Body is dense with moderate carbonation. Taste is overly sweet but well moderated by the high alcohol. Finish is long and sweet.

alex_leit (5154) - Minsk, BELARUS - SEP 3, 2017
Bottle 330 ml. Foggy, reddish-light amber color, white foam. Aroma is strong, fruit esters and alcohol, candies, candied fruits, marmalade, pear and plum wine, a bit of madera and calvados. Taste: strong, alcoholic, brandy, marmalade, lollipops, quite dry and bitter, very warming.

Piepenhenrich (1230) - Steinbach, GERMANY - SEP 2, 2017
Famed to be Belgium's strongest Ale, it is remarkable how well-balanced its complex flavors are. Many weaker beers (e.g. Quadruples) have a much stronger alcoholic note. A truely enjoyable experience for your taste buds.

Keukeman (171) - BEST, NETHERLANDS - AUG 31, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2017 .33l bottle at the Gouden Leeuw in Vessem. Poured a cloudy copper coloured beer with thin offwhite head. Aroma is alcohol, sweet and fruity: hints of caramel and apple/orange. Taste is very sweet. malt, brown sugar, orange, caramel. Appearance is cool, nice glass and bottle. Palate is good. Thick body and medium to low carbonation. Mouthfeel is pleasant. Overall really really good and special beer. Would definitely recommend.

Bacchus66 (940) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 19, 2017
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
