3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Red-gold with a thick white collar draping the glass like lager. Surprisingly lush aroma dragging in blackcurrant, mango, tropical Starburst and sappy green, hop-like notes as much as tinned peaches. Quite a successful attempt to fuse perfumed ladybeer with a credible Belgian Strong Ale; confectionary peach sweetness (just about) balanced by pale bready malts, slight house cake (Battenberg), pepper, wood, cherryish high alcohol notes, vanilla in the linger. Itís a bit sickly and chemical when some mellow funk and acidity might have suited better, but for all the air freshener-like peachiness, it still feels like beer, and Iím reassured that Dubuisson donít know how to make bad ones.

Now I leave peaches and I love beer and I love this combination. Might be slightly too much on the fruity side because you hardly taste alcohol and hops, dangerous with 8%. Bush makes good beers.

6 oz pour at City Beer in San Francisco. Pour is a hazed orange with a smallish white head that falls to a few bubbles quickly. The aroma is sweet Peach fruit and body odor. I walked to City Beer on a hot evening, is that me? Nope, its certainly the beer. Its not terribly unpleasant, natural smelling in its own way. Taste is rounded peach fruit - sweet fruit along with some peach skin. A whisper of some sourness, though of a natural fruit sourness. The BO is not present in the taste. Palate is medium bodied, rounded with a lingering fruit finish. Weird nose, nice smooth taste. Kinda weird, and I kinda liked it.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
11.2 oz bottle.
It pours a nice orange/gold/amber color with a foamy white head that sticks surprisingly well.
Personally I think it smells great. It smells like nicely tart peaches with a little bit of sugar for good measure. It isnít complex, but it is fresh and uplifting. It is a full-bodied aroma.
The flavor is more of a belgian pale than anything. It wasnít peachy or tart enough for me, but rather sweet and malty. You can taste the fruit, but it more or less comes off as yesty fruity flavors. The malt is huge, with the taste of dark wheat bread and burnt sugar. It is not alcoholic, but decently sweet and cloying. There is an interesting bitterness that is hard to pinpoint.
Overall it is a bit too sweet for me, but it isnít artificially sweet or anything, it is just a lot of malt that was crammed into this one.

So my understanding was that the peaches were just added later as a flavoring and were not fermented with the ale yeast. I think it was just fermented with the pretty wild yeasts. Great peach flavor, not medicinial or fake tasting.
