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.

Desverger (6956) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 25, 2015
Bottle from G&B, shared with the in-laws, Hammel, DK - Dark brown Amber pour with off-white head. Aroma and taste is sweet malty, with some caramel and brown sugar sweetness kicking in, some dark dried fruit, some Christmas spices, not a bad backup to the great premium version.

Bottle from Johnís. Muddy amber pour, almost not head. Rich spicy aroma. Flavors are malty, caramel, candy sweetness and spice, almost an anise-like quality. Rich beer. Yummy.

Melnis (390) - LATVIA - DEC 21, 2015
Ideāls trappists, diezgan vienkarös aromātā, bet tik patīkama karamele. Garöa līdzīga kā aromāts un ar vēl lielāku paleti.

kingaugusta (181) - Georgia, USA - DEC 15, 2015
Pours copper brown and clear with a very fast off-white head.nose is very sweet and candy like with strawberries, banana, & a touch of brown sugar. flavor is a lot like biting into a Christmas sugar cookie with lots of brown sugar, bread, an almost icing like sweetness and a pinch of cinnamon. alcohol is present but hidden by the big sweet malt. definitely tastes like Christmas and might be a little too much.

Zlotta (1325) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 13, 2015
0.33 l bottle from belgiuminabox, best before September 2017. Clear, dark reddish amber with a thin, creamy, slowly diminishing, tan to white head. Sweetish, fruity-malty aroma of raisins, prunes, vanilla, toffee, molasses and a bit of booze. Sweet, fruity-malty taste of raisins, prunes, toffee, vanilla and molasses, followed by a long, warming and very alcoholic finish. Medium to full body, slightly oily and effervescent mouthfeel, lively carbonation. A true winter warmer with all that alcoholic heat, hard to drink and not really pleasant. Still quite tasty and moreish, but totally out of balance.

Beerheart65 (1322) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 13, 2015
Clear mahogany brown. Depending on light has also ruby tones. Head is beige, thin and soon dissipates to foggy layer that stays long. Ripe fruits, banana, raisins, warm alcohol, then light spicy notes and herbs, mild anise, lively and nuanced. Fizzy carbonation, light body and feel, tingly alcohol, mild bitterness, long finish with ripe fruits and bit ash, sweet taste. Quite tasty and nuanced winter warmer, advent beer 13, but also bit too much alcohol and too sweet to fully enjoy. As it is this is just ok.

Uma cerveja boa pra quem gosta de cervejas doces e liquorosas. Nem se percebe o Šlcool.
