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.

300 ml bottle. Deep, clear amber color with a nice head. Aromas were very fruity and bready. Sweet citrus and light cherry. Very sweet flavor as well, lots of caramel, more bright fruit. Strong alcohol flavor. Very smooth and malty throughout. Iím not sure if that bite is hops, or alcohol. Seems to be a decent amount of each. Very Good

Pours a cloudy amber brown color with a very creamy smooth beige white head. Aroma is slightly acidic with plenty of spices present. Nutmeg,nuts,caramel and figs are present in scent. Carbonated flavor is very rich and spicy with nutmeg,caramel,figs,raisins, and fresh yeast present in taste. Alcohol is hidden well. Very good, not your everday beer, but a nice change of pace brew.

biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - MAR 19, 2006
Hazy amber with active carbonation and a rocky 1/2" head. Very fruity aroma. It makes me think of figs poached in vodka. Has some hints of mold. Strong and sweet. It definately has some floral notes. Green raisen and nail polish also. Heavy duty stuff.

Boutip (5465) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 17, 2006
Bottle: Poured a clear medium amber color ale with a super huge foamy head with perfect retention. Aroma of strong caramel malt with some spices and sweet cherry. Dry raisins, figs and caramel are all well balance in this beer. Body is thinner then expected and alcohol is well hidden. Very good classic Belgian strong ale.

noelcb (271) - Toledo, Ohio, USA - MAR 10, 2006
Pours a dark amber-brown, nice bubbly head, decent lace. Aromas are malt, buttery nuts, roast pork, peat, smoke, molasses, honey, yeast and bread. Flavor is marvelous toasty sweet malt, with notes of fruit, spice and honey. High ABV makes it nicely warming but absent any alcohol harshness or spice in either the nose or the taste. Nice hop contribution, especially to the aftertaste, but not overly bitter in the mouth. Nice thick chewy texture.
