Orange/reddish body with a small head of white bubbles. Fruity, lemon, honey in the aroma. Some lemon, along with earthy bitterness, and just a bit of sweetness. A lingering bitterness at the finish. Rather medium mouthfeel.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Scaldis de Noel has a very thin, off-white collar of foam (hardly even that, really), a clear, bubbly, rust-red appearance, and no lacing left behind. The aroma is of rich, sharp, sweet, caramel sugar and medium-roasted malt. Taste is of those elements, with a noticeable alcohol presentation in the brandywine style. There is only the faintest shadow of bitterness, here. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, slick, and somewhat chalky, sad to say. Scaldis de Noel finishes boozy, chalky, and rich. RJT

Már a felnyitásakor olyan illatáradat kényezteti orrunkat, mely még kívánatosabbá teszi ezt az amúgy is különleges hatású sört. Rendkívül gazdag aromával rendelkezik: édeskés, mézes - mandulás, marcipános jegyekkel és likőrösen édeskés, kellemesen bizsergető alkoholos ízzel. Meghitt hangulatot varázsoló, az ünnepet megkoronázó főzet.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours red brown with small quickly disappearing head. Faint caramel aroma. Sweet taste, lots of caramel, plenty of spices, raisins, pears. Alcohol is deceptively hidden and sneaks up on you. This is nice and quite complex but I prefer the Ambrée, which also happens to be less sweet.
