BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 23, 2012
11.2 oz bottle, aged at least 1 year, likely longer and served in a Bells Tulip: Slightly hazed coppery amber hue with a fading head and not much lace. The aroma is heavy candy corn and sugar smack cereal wrapped with reduced peach and cinnamon compote. Nothing else is detectable other than a sprig of dill and cheap canned tomatoes (WTF? Really?). The taste is completely artificial syrupy peach, bubblegum and plastic overtones. YUCK! no really DOUBLE YUCK! This is pathetic and needs cut in half by a light hoppy Saison to make it even remotely drinkable. 1/2 Lambic my arse, I call bullshit. The worse beer I had in 2012 so far.

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.

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.

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.

moldovan9807 (147) - Oradea, ROMANIA - APR 22, 2017
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.

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.

Vignale (3641) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 23, 2017
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.

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.

Evilman (214) - Taverny, FRANCE - JAN 22, 2017
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. APPROVED BY TAVERNY’S BLACK METAL CREW!
