COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like the Brasserie Dubuissonís renowned Scaldis Prestige, Scaldis Prestige de Nuits is aged in oak barrels for six months. But Prestige de Nuits is made of Scaldis Noel aged in Bourgogne barrels from the world famous "Nuits St. Georges" vineyard. The result is an ale of extraordinary complexity and depth.

Bush de NoŽl, ripened for 7 months on wine casks from Burgundy (Nuits-St.-Georges).

750 ml bottle shared by mreusch. Best before 2011 on the bottle. Pour is hazed cloudy orange brown with a smallish off white head. Aroma of malty citrusy brown sugar sweetness. Interesting sherry notes nicely warm the smell. Tannic wood and fruit. Lovely nose, super complex. Taste is brown sugar, malt, red wine, port and and a really nice sour cherry fruitiness near the end. The sour is delicate. The wood comes through in the taste, though is melded. All flavors are beautifully in balance. Palate is medium heavy, very mouth coating. Thanks for sharing this one Matt, very much appreciated. This was the class of the session for me.

UPDATED: MAR 26, 2009 750ml bottle, 2008, with a huge thanks to ygtbsm94 for the chance to try this! Pours a hazy light amber with a moderate off-white cap. On first smell I can already tell I wonít be able to adequately describe what Iím experiencing here, and tasting it only drives that point home. Wow, excellent, excellent stuff, even though I have no ability to capture my thoughts on this one, so Iím not going to try. To call it impressive is an understatement, thanks again Brad, and apologies for an all but worthless rating to actually describe my experience.

Shared by mreusch, thanks a lot Matt. Pours a hazy orange-ish, reddish, copper, color. The head is small but stays around. Aroma is wonderful at first a very lightly sour, sherry-like cherry aspect, which I just love. Its very nice and has a very light barrel aspect, which is so light and works great (which is hard to say for any barrel brew). In general very earthy, lightly sweet, just faintly alcoholic, and all well melded. Taste is very similar with that shining lightly sour, sherry-like cherry thing. The alcohol is extremely well hidden. There is a little woody flavor at the end. I know there arenít a lot of descriptors but its so simple yet so awesome. It has a medium body that has a light tingling, but everything evaporates nicely. Lightly sweet and light cherry aftertaste. Beautifully melded, great beer. I was highly surprised by this beer, I did not think Dubuisson could make a beer this good.
750mL cork and wire , generic tulip glass, again thanks a lot Matt.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - MAR 21, 2009
Courtesy miketd. Dark brown with an off white head. Rich malt, subtle aromatic spices, belgian yeast, candi sugar, lightly vinous oak. Great combination. The palate on this was perfect- silky smooth with plenty of soft carbonation to carry the flavors. Full body. Great belgian strong ale.

Big thanks to bu11zeye for this. Cuvee Speciale 2008. I thought it was Prestige at first (thatís a bit what the bottle looks like). Best Before 2011. Pours with a hazed brown body and a light brown head. Aroma has some sourness, very dry with champagne, brett, read wine and CO2. Taste is slightly sour with a bit of alcohol, tons of dryness and earthiness. A bit of red wine rounds out the flavor. Dry with light alcohol presence. Very solid!

UPDATED: MAR 20, 2009 Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Murky dark amber pour with no head. Nose of fruits and wood. Very sweet flavor with a nice fruity finish. Great on the palate and a very smooth finish.
