4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Presentation: 330mL brown bottle served in a tulip glass.
Appearance: Develops a thin, half finger head that goes away quickly. It leaves a ring, however. It’s a deep, dark orange color, and leaves some good lacing.
Smell: A very dominant sweet, peach scent is all that can be perceived.
Taste: Tastes very sweet, mainly of peach with a little malt. There’s a tiny bitter note that’s barely noticeable.
Mouthfeel: It’s crisp and light, but it leaves a cloying aftertaste after finishing it because of all the sweetness.
Overall: A very good beer that despite the high alcohol content is very sweet and easy to drink. This is a must try for fans of fruit beers or just anything sweet. Be careful though, it’ll sneak up on you.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
330mL bottle from International Beer Collector. BB 10/08/17
Pours a murky peach (nectar) looking body, dense white head.
SMACK! Aroma is like turbo charged peach (and apricot) nectar - seeds and all, touch of herb, some yeast spice as it warms.
Body is thick, there’s some texture there from addition of fruit, carbonation somewhat subdued for a Belgian ale.
It’s rather sweet - I’ll give it that - normal Bush is sweet enough but this is ramps up a gear. It mentions Lambic in the blend, but there’s very little of the acidity & complexity from it to make this anything more than one dimensional. Yeah, you do get hints of spices & yeast character as it warms, but also hot booze which leaves the palate somewhat metallic.
I like the idea, but it needs perfecting (barrel age!? haha). Overall far too sweet, one-dimensional, tasty but a fruity boozy mess.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330 mL bottle poured. A darker copper orange pour with plenty of active foam head. A pleasant crunchy, cool peaches aroma. Flavor is a bit on the sweet side, with peaches, floral notes, and a slight soap reminder. Good peach quality though. I love a genuine peach flavor in any type of beer. Creamy. A beer with sneaky strength. I was sure I was going to enjoy this, but it surprised me a little. Very pleasant, unique beer here.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle BB 10 Aug 2017. Reasonably clear sunset orange with large fluffy white head. Aromas of peach and passionfruit soft drink. The taste is excessively sweet - the peach and passionfruit soft drink is there, slight doughy malt character, light tartness, no obvious hop notes. Light bodied, sweet finish. Fruit character is a little artificial and would’ve been nicer with some additional tartness or bitterness.

Aroma is artificial peach peel with some malt. Taste is again artificialpeach sweetness with some herbal tart notes sour fruit. Quite drinkable with the alcohol not well hidden.

Not terrible, but very peachy. Some esters to go along. Medium carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dosyć jednowymiarowe, ale smaczne piwo. W aromacie brzoskwinia pomieszana z nutami słodowymi. W smaku analogicznie. Posmak dosyć brzoskwiniowy. Słodkawe. Średnio-wysoce wysycone. Czuć lekki alkohol.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Gammal flaska mera än ett år efter BBD. Sött apertiföl med lätt aprikosarom/smak som väl ska konkurrera med söta fruktviner. Men väl söt trots åldern och tiden har inte gjort aprikossmakerna och sötningsmedlet mindre artificiellt heller. Men viss elegens och väl integrerad alkohol iaf men att det här skulle vara 50% lambic hade jag aldrig gissat.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Definitely not the good style, this is way more a fruit beer, not a Belgian strong ale. Aroma is peach fruity, light malty. Sweet, sticky and peachy. Good fruity beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A good surprise! The peach aroma is quite present in mouth, but doesn’t hide the bitterness and strong character of the classic Bush taste. Lower alcohol level than the regular one obviously, but still interesting, especially for a fruit beer. Refreshing, maybe not a favorite, but definitely a pleasant drink.
