On tap at Tapestry, Philadelphia.

This beer needs no complex review.

Smells like 100 pounds of peaches, and tastes pretty much the same. If you like peaches or fruit beers, you are in for an absolute treat.
On tap the 8.5% is hidden (dangerous), by bottle the booze is there, but still a massive peach bomb. Enjoy, I highly recommond it for all beer drinkers.

Enjoyed by me on tap at Chef Paul’s Bavarian Lodge in Lisle, Illinois July 26th, 2012 in the presence of my brother in law Mat. I believe the place had been renamed simply “Bavarian Lodge” but I still refer to it as “Chef Paul’s.” By any name this is a world class BeerAdvocate place. Anyone reading this should seek it out.

A Strongly fruit nose…certainly peach. Nothing if not interesting. 4.0

S Huge, creamy head that lingered for minutes. 4.5

T Excellent, authentic sweet peach taste that might be the best tasting fruit beer that I have ever had. There is also a great sweet cream taste along with the peach. Really, really good. I would not change a thing. 5.0

M Smooth as silk and a real plus for this beer. 4.5

D/O Great drinkability and overall this is a great fruit beer. 4.5

Notes: Fruit beers are not my favorite but this is a great tasting beer. Rated based on its style, this beer is a winner. Another interesting selection from “Chef Paul’s!”

A: Poured a lighter orangish/peach color with good carbonation

S: Fresh peaches but not overpowering with some belgian yeast, fresh and sweet

T: A belgian yeast character us light with a nice light peach taste and man is it refreshing

M: Delicous. So nice, crisp and different. Well carbonated

D: I could honestly drink this all day and I would think a good gateway beer for those females who prefer Zima.

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.

On tap at Lucky Baldwin’s Trappiste Pub & Cafe in Pasadena, CA.

Pours a murky honey orange with a foamy tan head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy patches of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of peaches, peach juice, apricots, and peach/apricot jam and jelly aromas. Taste is much the same with a slight malt finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with a great fruit presence in the aroma and taste that make it super easy to drink.

11.2oz bottle picked up at my local whole foods as a single for around $3. this is a beer ive never heard of from a brewery that i havnt tried yet. drank from my russian river "tion" glass.

A- this one pours out a light orange (peach?) colored body with a solid finger of bright white head on top. the head has good retention and leaves behind small rings of lacing. off to a good start.

S- the peach juice in this one hits me immediately. very real and fresh smelling. it adds a rather intense level of sweetness to the nose. pretty one dimensional, but thats what this beer is going for.

T- the real peach smell turns into real peach flavor in my mouth. fresh and juicy. very sweet, but theres also a very slight underlying sourness to this that helps balance it out. a little bit of belgian yeast adds to the mix. there is no trace of the alcohol.

M- the body is a solid medium. the carbonation is just about right for your average belgian ale. the alcohol is masterfully hidden, there is virtually no warming.

O- fruit beers usually arnt my thing (unless in lambic form), but i cant help myself with this one. putting it down is hard. not the most thought provoking beer, but its hitting the spot right now. ill go back soon for another couple.

Taste is sweet peach, peach juice, and wheaty lager. Had on tap and this was amazing. Sweet, but not cloyingly so. Could have several. One of the better peach beers I have had.

Peche Mel Scaldis, Belgian Ale with Peach Juice added. So they say.

Poured fresh off the tap, and into a Scaldis chalice. Cloudy, apricot/peach color, bountiful head, ivory toned, lace-leaving, looking good. Very inviting visuals.

Aromatics invite, as well, sweet, peachy, and gorgeous. Bright, fruity, beautiful. I can't help liking this, so far.

Tasting it, ...Mmm, a little bitter, a little sour, just enough to cut the sweet, but the fruit carries forward and keeps on coming. Little honey, little bit of booze. Slightly rough, but over-ridingly smooth, -ooth,- ooth. Full in body, no slouch in flavor or texture in any stretch or degree.

Incredibly delicious. How else to put it? Just enough bitter and sour to match the sweet fruit. Excellent match of fruit and ale. Deeee-licious. Mmmmm meets yum.

Never had a Dubuisson brew I haven't liked, yet. And the streak continues.

On tap at the Old Toad in Rochester, NY.

Pours a murky, slightly dark orange. 2 inch head. Pretty good lacing. Really nice looking beer.

Smell is of pure peaches, both the actual fruit and the sweet juice.

Tastes incredible. Peaches, peaches, peaches, plus apricots, slight cloves, and Belgian yeast. Really tastes like real fruit, not extract. Slightly tart, but mostly just sweet, without being cloying.

Low carbonation which is good, because it would make this taste more like a fruity soda rather than beer. Full body, not too syrupy.

One of the best fruit beers I've ever had, just a masterful use of peach.
