BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Brasserie Dubuisson Frères sprl
Belgium
br-dubuisson.com

Style: Belgian Strong Pale Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 13.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
"Bush Prestige starts out as Bush Ambrée, which instead of being stored as traditionally in stainless steel vats is matured in oak barrels for a period of six months.

During bottling, a small quantity of sugar and yeast is added to the beer, which, placed in a hot room, causes refermentation in the bottle that gives it a natural cloudiness and a particularly high alcohol content of 13%."

4.5/5  rDev +11.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

L: pours amber with a light copper tint under a thin 1/2" white head with fair to poor retention

S: smells like peach, stone fruit, alcohol, light caramel, and citrus with a faint hint of tobacco, light grape, white wine and vanilla

T: Lightly sweetened alcohol and peach lead the flavors drying on the finish with moderately bitter hops and some lightly astringent oak tannins. There is some light caramel flavor, peach skin, coconut and light nuts.

F: medium body and carbonation, moderate alcohol warming

O: a big, well balanced beer that handles its 13.0% alcohol by volume deceptively well

thanks to my brother for this bottle a gift from Christmas -2013 edition cellared for a couple years

The color is a medium amber with good clarity and thick cream with fine beading. The smell is fruity and has a slight vinous accent with hint of wood in the nose. The feel is great - so smooth for a 13%, the aging probably helped yet moderately high carbonation gives an impression of dryness and levity with mild sweetness and slight woody texture in the back as it finishes on the dry side.

The taste is very good -slight stone fruit in the yeast flavor with a light cherry element and nutty toast quality from the barrel with a slight sweetness in the malt with mild alcohol in the flavor, it is almost undetectable. I really enjoyed this strong pale, I would be interested in trying a fresh one if it is still being brewed and bottled.

- looks like murky mud water but inviting
- smell is very fruity, white grape scents
- alot of oak and white grape notes, some mellow yeast is noticable. sweet
- most smooth and balanced beer i have had to date
- overall not the flavor i look for in beer but one of the top crafted and complex beers i have had, one of the best for this style

The beer pours a very bubbly head that is slightly off white with a very light shade of orange. The beer itself is a slightly hazy deep orange beer with slight brown notes. The beer smell is very fruity with strong oak vanilla notes. The smell also has white grape notes with slightly strong alcohol notes (Beer was aged for one year in poor conditions.). The taste resembles a very fruity sparkling wine. The taste has the acidic white grape and oak as well as vanilla notes make a very strong appearance. The taste also has a sour apple flavor it as well. The mouthfeel is smooth with biting carbonation. Medium bodied but on the lighter side. Overall, a very good beer even though it has a strong resemblance to sparkling wine.
