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.

blankboy (6787) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 11, 2005
Bottle at íDecember at DougShoemakerís 2005í -- courtesy of ?. Pours a very bubbly dark amber with an average size foamy white head. The aroma is all sugary malt and alcohol and I found it too sweet. Flavour of caramel malt, dark fruit and alcohol is also overly sweet. I donít know, I either wasnít in the right mood or this beer just isnít for me but, I hate to say this word again, itís just too sweet.

25 ml bottle from bevmo. Pours deep amber with a generous off-white head. Aroma is rich, fruity malts, with hints of molasses and a strong alcohol presence. Flavor features sweet fruity malts, figs with bread and an alcohol bite in the finish. Full body and creamy smooth carbonation. Qutie good.

Not at all as sweet as I thought it would be. Herbs and blonde raisins dominates the taste untill the alcohol content grabs you in the aftertaste. Belly warming.

hippie4beer (162) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - DEC 9, 2005
Bottle. Pours a very cloudy brown color with a head that serves as a thin film across the beer. Aroma of sweet malt and a citrusy zest. Flavor is of candy, alcohol, and figs. Warming palate with a silk alcohol finish. This is good.

MPA (866) - Amager (form. NÝrrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - DEC 9, 2005
Bottle. Nice head! After a good pour it settles and stays on as a thin layer of carbon frosting. Makes one think of decorated honningkager (honey cakes). Sweet malt and alcohol hits the nose with this one! Too much alcohol after my opinion. Also a little yeast. Flavour is caramel and alcohol - a veritable fitness workout: do you feel the burn?! Palate finishes quite nice. Overall a nice beer. I might wanna save the second bottle Iíve got, for a few years. It would probably go well with this one.

HogTownHarry (6371) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - DEC 4, 2005
Bottle (250ml). Poured deep orange-amber with a decent foamy-creamy lasting head. Aroma of all sorts of candies and malt, spicy and even some evergreen resin - smells like Christmas! Taste is of licorice, ribbon candy, malt, tons of alcohol, scotch pine needles - really does remind me of Christmas as a kid. Mouthfeel very syrupy and sugary, long linger, starts candy-sweet and ends a bit bitter, long finish, very nice, glad it wasntí a big bottle!

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 4, 2005
Dark amber colour, off white head. Some sweet aroma, flowers. Full body, some malts. Bitter finish. The 12% is not really clear. A good beer.

mreeves (276) - Sammamish, Washington, USA - DEC 3, 2005
A lovely dark amber color with a perfect appearance, in my opinion. Just the right carbonation level and looks lovely in my Gouden Carolus glass. For 12.5%, hardly noticeable alcohol. Very malty flavor profile, a little sticky, definite Belgian yeast strain flavor. A nice holiday winter warmer.

Bigsilky (327) - Charleston, USA - DEC 2, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2005 Powerful. Nice inviting flavor and aroma. Dried apricots and citrusy bittering hops put up a nice facade as the 13% pushes its way through onto the palate to deliver the trademark warmth and body that this brewery always promises to deliver. Imagine biting into a brandy soaked fruit cake.
