Batavi (81) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - APR 26, 2015
UPDATED: APR 27, 2015 Bij het openen van de champagnefles een luide knal van de kurk die tegen het plafond schiet, gelukkig blijft het bier in de fles! Uitgeschonken in origineel craquelé Bush Graal bierglas. Enigszins troebel donkerblond /amberkleurig bier, met lichte crèmekleurige schuimkraag die vrij snel, vrijwel volledig verdwijnt. Zeer aangename aroma's van Belgische gist, witte wijn, houtig iets van keldergeur. In het Nederlands heb je er geen mooie benaming voor maar in het Engels wel: smell of barnyard. De smaak is uiterst complex; zoet, zuur en bitter tegelijk perfect in balans. Deze Bush Prestige is een massief bier met een uitgebreid en volledig smaakpallet. Complexe tonen van: Belgische gist, brood, dan zoete smaken van karamel, honing en gedroogde abrikozen en rozijnen. Daarna tonen van witte wijn, cognac/brandy waarin duidelijk de houtige tannine tonen van de eiken vaten aanwezig is. De afdronk is medium lang, zacht zoet met verwarmende alcohol toetsen. Het bier wordt steeds donkerder naar mate je meer gistdepot uitschenkt. Nog nooit zo'n complex en complete Belgische strong Ale geproefd, met veel kenmerken van een Barley Wine, zeer uitgebalanceerd bier met een knap verborgen alcoholpercentage van 13%. Werkelijk een van de beste bieren uit België, van Brasserie Dubuisson, waar je wel degelijk de rijping op eiken vaten in terug proeft. Tegenwoordig helaas niet meer geleverd in de exclusieve champagnefles van weleer, maar in een normale 75 cl. bierfles met kurk. Werkelijk het geld zeer waard, voor de echte bierliefhebber, kan met gemak wedijveren met zeer goede wijnen. Maakt ook nieuwsgierig naar de Bush de Nuits en de Bush de Charmes.

ninecats (256) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - APR 26, 2015
Sample at En Öl- & Whiskymässa, Gothenburg, April, 2015. Hazy golden/amber, fairly small white head, quickly dissipating. Aroma is oak, dried fruit, honey, yeast, spices, dates. Taste is moderate sweet at first, with dried fruit, floral and bitter notes, some alcohol, going into more refined sour hints towards the finish with citrus, orange, dry, elegant white wine feeling. Big body, medium carbo. A big beer, with big characteristics.

Vells (885) - Riga, LATVIA - APR 5, 2015
Thanks to Alusmamuts! Quite huge brew. Malty background, dried fruits, overripe fruits, toffee, nice oak touch, spicy yeasty. Lovely white wine characteristics. Astringent, anesthetic finish. Light sweetish sourness with light bitterness. Well balanced and enjoyable brew.

KoNrRiI (683) - Århus, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2015 0.75 bottle. Hazy, very dark amber color and a small, persistent head. Aroma of fermented fruits, sour apples, some sweetness, champagne. Taste is sweet and sour, kind of like a fruit wine. Medium body, slick texture, and soft carbonation. Finish is even sourer than the rest. Overall the beer is much different and much worse than Bush de Nuits; I suspect a spoiled batch.

poisoneddwarf (1865) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - JAN 31, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2015 Rating #1800. 750 ml corked and caged bottle. 2013 vintage. Complex aroma is dusty brett, lemony, oak, vanilla, caramel, molasses, raisins. Pours muddy orange-brown with a thick beige head with excellent retention. Taste is sweet, boozy, oaky, fruity esters, savory, paint thinner. Oxidized; I think this has been sitting on the shelf for awhile. Foamy mouthfeel. Not bad, I’m glad I tried it, but i’ll never buy it again. It’s a little too boozy, too foamy and too oxidized. Not worth the obscene amount I paid for it.

750 ml bottle- Thanks Poisoneddwarf- Pours extremely hazy golden with thin off white head. Aroma is brett, very citrusy, barnyard funk, extremely complex. Taste is funky, fruity, a little overly malty, dry bitter finish, oaky, a bit too boozy.
