From the bottle, it pours a slightly hazy peach colored amber with a modest head, soon diminishing to nothing. Loads of peachiness in the nose. The mouth gets a sweetish peachy flavor, not unpleasant.

On tap. This one will knock your ass down to hell if you have too many of them. Strong and very sweet. It smells and tastes like the went super aggressive on the flavoring. It is a downright assault on the nose and tongue. I didn't enjoy it but was in the minority with those who also tried it.

Brasserie Dubuisson "Pêche Mel"
330 ml brown glass bottle, coded "15/12/2017 I 4 37 6 06:31

Notes via stream of consciousness: Firstly I should mention that this beer is available under two main names, Bush and Scaldis. In the United States it's labeled with the Scaldis name due to a conflict with Anheuser-Busch. It pours a very hazy deep-amber & orange colored body beneath a finger thick head of rocky yellowed off-white. I could smell a little peach as I poured it, and it's definitely there if you raise it to your nose. It's quite nice and seems totally authentic. The flavor follows and I'm quite surprised. It's probably the most authentic peach beer I've ever had. No, I take that back, it definitely is! It's just peach and sweet malt. I'm not finding any hops other than a very mild bit of leafiness in the finish, and no Belgian yeast phenolics. The question is, is it too sweet? I don't think so. There's a very light tartness that helps to balance it, and really, it's kind of like a dessert beer. This isn't the kind of beer that you just drink, you really have to sip at it. Looking at it in that way, no, it's not too sweet because it's supposed to be sweet. And what a charmer it is! Geez, I am loving this! I have one more bottle that I thought I'd give to my wife but now I'm thinking that maybe I shouldn't say anything and I'll just drink it myself. What have I missed? Mouthfeel. I'd call it medium, maybe medium leaning towards medium-light, and it's gently crisp-then-smooth across the palate. Very mild bitterness... I'm imagining less than 10 IBUs. Ahhh, the head retention and lacing, I almost forgot. Pretty average on both, which is a little unusual for a sweet beer but I guess that's at least partly to do with the soft carbonation. What head is there is nice and creamy though. The lacing is limited to some spots and splashes that you can actually see slowly sliding back down the glass into the remaining liquid, Oh man, that aroma is just killer! So, maybe that's it. I think it's pretty clear how I feel about it overall. If you're someone who loves authentic fruit tasting beers this one's for you.

This beer pours a light mud brown with a smallish head. The aroma is very simple of peach juice. The flavor is similar, a fairly neutral brown ale base dominated by fresh peach juice. The mouthfeel is full, sweet, and sugary. Overall if you want peach juice, this is a great beer. It goes down very easily. Not much beer about it, but honestly, I am not going to complain. I was in the mood for simple, and that is what I got.
