Notes/Commercial Description:
"Bush Prestige starts out as Bush Ambrée, which instead of being stored as traditionally in stainless steel vats is matured in oak barrels for a period of six months.

During bottling, a small quantity of sugar and yeast is added to the beer, which, placed in a hot room, causes refermentation in the bottle that gives it a natural cloudiness and a particularly high alcohol content of 13%."

The beer pours a very bubbly head that is slightly off white with a very light shade of orange. The beer itself is a slightly hazy deep orange beer with slight brown notes. The beer smell is very fruity with strong oak vanilla notes. The smell also has white grape notes with slightly strong alcohol notes (Beer was aged for one year in poor conditions.). The taste resembles a very fruity sparkling wine. The taste has the acidic white grape and oak as well as vanilla notes make a very strong appearance. The taste also has a sour apple flavor it as well. The mouthfeel is smooth with biting carbonation. Medium bodied but on the lighter side. Overall, a very good beer even though it has a strong resemblance to sparkling wine.

2011 vintage.

Pours a murky orange-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, caramel, toffee, vanilla, wood, and alcohol aromas. Taste is much the same with malt, toffee, vanilla, wood, and slight butter flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of wood bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with really nice wood aged characteristics all around.

Serving type: bottle.

Pours a thin white layer, that fades slowly leaving some lace. Cloudy amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Nose is candy sugar, Belgian yeast and hints of alcohol, flavor is smooth, sweet, fruity & hints of caramel. Nice clean finish. The 13% ABV is not really noticeable but savor this beer, it ain't cheap. Caged & corked 750ml bottle. Bottled in 2013.
