COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a sweet beer with a pleasant flavour of hops. Indeed, for Bush de Noel, the brewer uses a traditional process which consists in placing hops flowers in the vats where the beer rests for four to six weeks by which time it will have reached full maturity, giving it a very distinctive taste. In the U.S the label generally reads Scaldis Noel.

Cool little bottle. Murky, ruby body with a good sized creamy biege head. Sweet, dark fruity aroma. Some alcohol scents. Fruity flavor with a nice little tangy bite. Full bodied malts, fruits and allcohol. The 12% can be detected throughout but does not take anything away from this beer. Couple of these during the holidays and youíll be feeling nice. Enjoyable beer.

Clear amber color. Sweet and very malty. Some cherry and light spice. Flavor was sweet and fruity. Thick malt. Full body and very warming. This is good for a cold night.

HenrikSoegaard (12264) - Randers, DENMARK - DEC 24, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2008 Bottle 0.25 L. Big disappointment, one an average beer. Creamy fair mostly lasting head. Wonderfull dark amber colour. Week to no aroma. Much too alcoholic flavor. Long finish. Much too carbonated for a belgian strong ale. Avoid!!!

pours opaque orangish brown with a whitish fizzy head which fades quickly. bready, malty aroma with some alcohol present. very rich in flavor. noticeable fruitiness, chocolatey, and noticeable alcohol. Very rich mouthfeel balanced by a wonderful hoppy, dry finish. Alcohol is noted throughout this brew, but at 12% - no fault. This is an excellent wintertime warmer.

12/23/05 small bottle @ golden rail. Poured a very muddy red color with a very thin head. Nose bursts with grapes and kinda of a very sweet dessert wine. Flavors are also of grape and the 12% is hardley noticed. Fig or grainy feel throughout the brew. Nice beer that I was very happy to have tried.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 21, 2005
25 cl bottle. Clear amber body with a modest, silky off-white head. Smell is sweet and worty with elements of brandy, maple syrup, wood, and caramelized fruit. Flavor is sweet and warming with nice malty depth bringing notes of molasses, brandy, sweet caramel, and a touch of smoke. Pleasant and tasty as a slow sipper.

bb (7915) - Alamo, California, USA - DEC 20, 2005
Bottle. Dark amber beer with a nice cream colored head. Fruity aroma with malts. Date/fig/cherry notes with a hint of tartness. Alcohol and malt flavors - again also some fig and date and yeastiness. Alcohol and plum/date flavors lingering. High carbonation. Couldnít decide how I really felt about it while drinking it.

mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 19, 2005
bottle. cloudy orange with a small white head. aroma consists of grassy grains, pears, and biscuit bread. it has a very hot gasoline flavour which seems to be the trend for this brewer. spicy at times with a sweet yeasty character. pretty good though it should be toned down a few notches.

Oh Ruby! A doughy cherry aroma winds its way up the glass and into my eagerly awaiting nose. Warming and sweet with a long lingering bitter cherry finish, this is a fine after dinner beer made for sipping. Ample lacing makes it nice to gaze upon as well.
