Brasserie Dubuisson Buch Amber (12%)

I find it quite amusing that the label of this beer declares Bush Amber to be, “The Strongest Belgian Beer,” and yet Brasserie Dubuisson themselves do a stronger one.
As it goes Bush is rather nice, pouring a thick orange marmalade with a comfy cloud of head.
The aroma is fruity boozy sweetness and the first mouthful is a fat lump of apple cores and brandy heat which dissipates into a good sticky caramel toffee laced with spun sugar and sherbet.
There’s a decent smack of peppery spices that pop and crackle in a most pleasing way, and across all this you find bright sharp spikes of lemon and a whole garden full of grassy freshness.
The finish is sweet candy floss and honey, though it manages to stay the right side of sickly and leaves a decent dryness.
Badly labelled but beautifully brewed.
