Brasserie Dubuisson Peche Mel

I love Twin Light Tap House. I’ve said it before, and I will say it again. If you haven’t been there, go immediately. Anyways, Katie and I ended up there (as usual) and I was having issues with choosing a beer. This time, it wasn’t because there were all these ones I hadn’t reviewed. It was, yet again, because I had reviewed all of them but two (on tap). I had never heard of this beer, but it was described to me as a peach lambic that wasn’t a fruit bomb. Okay, twist my arm…

ABV: 8.5%

Style: Fruit/Vegetable Beer

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Created many years ago by students as a cocktail, the Pêche Mel’Bush was originally a mix of equal parts BUSH Amber and peach gueuze. Brewed since 2009 by the Brasserie Dubuisson with the same rigour as the other Bush beers, made to an original recipe based on natural peach extracts, the Pêche Mel’Bush has what it takes to satisfy everyone who likes fruit-flavoured beers with character. The natural flavourings and extracts of the fruit complement the original bitterness of the Bush Amber to create a rounded and perfectly balanced beer.”

Random: I think that I need to start collecting more glasses from different breweries. I really don’t have all that many.

This beer poured into the glass with a sexy, one finger white head. It dissipated quickly and left no lacing on the glass (not as sexy). The body was a clear, dark orange color with huge amounts of seltzer-y carbonation on it. Then, I got to the nose. Wow. Absolutely amazeballs. It was teeming with fresh peach. Katie also got the same beer and was amazed at how good it smelled. The taste, if at all possible, was even better than the nose. It was peach and apricot up front, and then some woody dryness at the end. I didn’t expect this at all. When I hear “lambic,” I think lots of fruit and borderline syrupy sweet. This was incredibly drinkable with lots of different flavor notes. The body was medium thickness with high amounts of carbonation. The booze was insanely and dangerously hidden. The finish was long with lots of fresh peach. This beer just floored me (and Katie, who also loved it). This was a definite A+ beer for me. I would have this again in a second.
