[German]

Die B8(AME) ist eine alte Buckfast, die 2015 mit einer Sahariensis aufgefrischt wurde. Diese Anpaarung hat sie extrem brutfreudig gemacht, sodass sogar noch Ende September massive Brutbretter vorzufinden sind. Sie ist trotzdem durch nichts aus der Ruhe zu bringen, ist sanftmütig und extrem schwarmträge. Auf Rauch kann man ebenso das ganze Jahr verzichten.
