Bundaberg Peachee uses real peach nectar to create a unique peach taste. This refreshing full bodied flavour makes Bundaberg Peachee the perfect drink all year round.
A delightful sparkling drink which goes down a treat. As we were heading to a BBQ at a friends last night we picked up a 4 pack each of the Bundaberg Peachee and the Bundaberg Passionfruit. Having had these before I knew they tasted great and would be perfect as a drink with the beautiful sunshine which was out. When I went to open my drink I noticed after pulling back the tab and almost loosing half my drink that the company has changed there lids to a pull tab style cap rather than the screw top lid which used to be on there drinks, this in my opinion was definitely not a great move as it was not just me it turned out who had this problem with others who we offered our drinks to also having spillages due to the removal of their lids.
This is certainly a sweet drink which is made with real peach nectar, you can actually smell the real fruit as soon as you break into the bottle and the smell is lovely and peachy which is one thing I really liked about this drink. Before opening up the bottle you can see quite a build up of sediment in the bottom of the glass and the drink also appears a bit cloudy, the bottle actually states that you need to "invert bottle before opening" for this reason. It is quite fizzy but not as fizzy as other commercial drinks such as Coke, Fanta etc. It has a lovely taste of peaches, due to the real fruit pulp I assume.
The Bundaberg Peachee drinks come in a four pack, with each of the 375ml bottles having a embossed Bundaberg word in the glass, and also a label which features a picture of juicy peaches and some fancy writing, the bottles also state that the drinks are craft brewed for over 2 days.
A great non-alcoholic drink to have in your fridge over the summer, which i'm sure would also make a great mixer for alcohol.
This is an incredibly sweet drink. That sums it up pretty well. Using a fruit that is not often used for fruit drinks, this Bundaberg drink provides another unique addition to its range, alongside the Ginger Beer, and Lemon, Lime, and Bitters. Without the bitterness from the Lemon, Lime, and Bitters, or the warmth of the Ginger Beer, this Peachee drink has nothing to limit how much of this drink that you will consume. And in the end, you will find that your bottle will be empty, long before your thirst is quenched.
I could probably drink a good 500mL of this in one go, but I'm sure I would get sick of it. The flavor is exceptionally intense, and is the only thing that will stop you from drinking it. Which is unfortunate; it doesn't quite have the "I will pause then drink more" that the other drinks have, it has more of an "I will stop because I'm sick of the flavor" or "the bottle is empty but I'm still thirsty" scenario. And I don't drink this drink as often because of that.
It really is a nice drink, in moderation; but moderation won't fill you or satisfy you. If you drink one on a hot summer's day, you will feel refreshed, but left wanting more. Just relish that refreshing feeling.
I recently tried one of these drinks on an evening out with friends (at the moment I am pregnant and am sick of the plain old normal fizzy options so was after something different/special for my "night out"). I'm still not to sure about this drink and regret only buying the one bottle as I probably needed at least another to make up my mind completely.
A nice sweet drink made with real peach nectar was the original reason I choose this drink - something that actually contains a reasonable amount of real fruit pulp is generally better for you (I hope) and often tastes a lot better than fake flavoured drinks. On this occasion however I think having the sweet flavourings as well as the real fruit pulp possibly made this drink too sweet/over the top.
The liquid of this drink is cloudy which I assumed is normally and had sediments sitting on the bottle but a gentle tip up n down of the drink had all of that mixed it with ease. It definately does taste of peach and like I said earlier is quite sweet, I can imagine it going really nicely with some added alcohol to mix in with it which would change the flavour. This drink isnt really fizzy like coke etc but just has a subtle hint of fizz.
I like the bottles that these drinks come in and felt a part of the crowd (who were all drinking that evening) as I also had a bottle in my hand that wasnt a big ol water bottle or a glass of coke. I also find it a must having a replaceable lid as I am quite slow to drink a bottle of anything and don't like to waste leftovers, instead peferring to take any drink left home with me again.
We had a small dinner party this evening. My friends came along with a 4 pack of these Bundaberg Peachee drinks to contribute towards the meal. We were having Mexican, and so with the spicy food a nice sweet fizzy drink is usually a good call. This drink boosts that it is made with real peach nectar. A nectar is a style of drink that is quite sugary but also includes a lot of real fruit pulp.
This comes in a clear glass bottle, and has a nice peach-coloured label. It also has a peach image in the middle of the label. I quite like the name of the product. Peachee makes me think of everything being peachy, all good. The label also makes me think of summer and the feeling of having fresh stone fruit, juicy and running down my chin. That makes me smile just thinking about it. I was a little worried about the flavour though as often peach tastes like cheap lip balm to me.
Inside the bottle is the drink. Like all Bundaberg brewed soft drinks, the liquid is a bit cloudy and there is sediment sitting at the bottom. The flavour is really peachy and sweet. The fizz is not super bubbly. I like that though, often some commercial carbonated drinks are just too bubbly for me and it hurts to swallow it. This drink is delicious on it's own and definitely helped me deal with the spice in my dinner. Not a hint of lip balm. It would be a great addition to a summer punch or champagne cocktail. I could even imagine warming this slightly with some apple cider and cinnamon stick for a hot winter drink.
