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.

Clear fruity dried raisin aroma. Very clear beer. Almost no foam ruby redish. Boozy taste aggressive. Not so clear in aftertaste.

zenkis (754) - Ogre, LATVIA - JAN 10, 2016
Simple, sugary-syrupy, Dubbel like brew, sharp mouthfeel. Medium carbonation, almost no foam. Typical fruity esters are almost absent, no traditional yeasty touch.
Weird, but maybe Iím just grown out of "Belgian beer- must be good!"

Shot (451) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - JAN 9, 2016
Bottle. Pours a clear reddish brown with a thin lacy head. Aromas of candied fruit and toffee. Bready flavors with fruit, toffee, cloves and black pepper. Lively mouthfeel; peppery on the tongue. Noticeable alcohol warmth. Outstanding winter warmer.

Rubi color with very short head. Sweet and fruity aromas. Some roasty nuances. Intense sweet taste. Full body, low carbonation and strong warming sensation. Good beer to get hot.

Ippopodio (134) - ITALY - JAN 4, 2016
Di colore ambrato carico e schiuma fine color ocra, lascia il naso colmo di sentori dolci: caramello, uvetta, toffee e cioccolato al latte. In bocca l'alcol viene fuori e i sentori sono di frutta passita sotto spirito. Il corpo è morbido ed oleoso con una sensazione di calore alcolico che impedisce di buttarla giù tutta di un fiato. Anche il finale è di caramello, manca una virata decisa verso la pulizia finale.

Cristobal37 (792) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 3, 2016
Syruppy sweet aroma, cherry, and maybe bourbon. Bubbily ruby with little head that doesnt stick around long. Sweet caramel, cherry and milk chocolate. Hides the booze at first then in the finish you can defo taste/feel it. Warming after a couple sips. The aftertaste is interesting a bit heavy and boozy, but some woody rootiness and lightly sweet and flowery. I prefer a barleywine that has a bit more hops and nutty malt flavor to this sweet sweet liqueur tasting version. But at 12% it?s totally drinkable.

Bottle at home. Pours clear copper with a creamy tan head. Wonderful malty body with a lot of festive spice. Proper winter warmer for sure.

HuskerTan (1700) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - DEC 28, 2015
(Thanks, Gene! "Travlr") Bottle. A- Fruit cake, caramel, spices, vinous, nutty, red wine, subtle apple. A- Murky brown color, cloudy liquid, minimal brown head. T- Tart green apples, butterscotch, subtle red wine. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, astringent sour finish. O- Unfortunately, I think this had a bit of a quality issue. It was also of an unknown vintage. Smelled decent at first, but weakened as the head dissipated and had a definite tart apple taste and not much else. Also looked like nasty sewer water. Had a lot of excitement for this one, especially being my Christmas beer, but alas, it was not meant to be.
