 The trademark BUSH has only been registered in a few European countries as in the forties, nobody at the Brewery Dubuisson had imagined this BUSH beer would be sold worldwide.
Afterwards, the Brewery Dubuisson has not been allowed to register the BUSH name in several countries. As a result, our BUSH beer is exported in all other countries under the name of SCALDIS.

Translated from the website from French to English:

La Bush de Noël est née en 1991 pour répondre au souhait des consommateurs à la
recherche d’une bière chaleureuse pour les fêtes de fin d’année

 The Bush Christmas was born in 1991 in response to the desire of consumers to  looking for a warm beer for the holiday season.

L’utilisation importante de malt caramel lui offre une robe rouge cuivrée ainsi qu’une rondeur exceptionnelle.
