COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like the Brasserie Dubuisson’s 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 Noël, ripened for 7 months on wine casks from Burgundy (Nuits-St.-Georges).

Sammy (10655) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 26, 2010
Finished a bomber of this fine unique beverage, in the very glass it was designed for. Thanks for sendng both BelgBeerGeek. Pours a blackish cognac coloured body with an initially notion only of a head. The aroma is rich wine (it was aged in such for 6 months), and the taste is secondary to this Belgian ale, with some chocolate. Special though not extraordinary special.Above average mouthfeel.

markwise (5085) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 8, 2010
Big thanks again to SHIG for bringing the pain to the Tampa Crew this week. This was one of the most intriguing beers. Pours very hazy brown-yellow with a creamy off-white head. Nose is malt, vinegar, tart, sweet, lemon, citrus, and sugar. Flavor is similarly interesting: malty yet tart yet fruity yet tart yet sweet. A better mix of sweet and sour I cannot remember. Medium-bodied and very unique.

eManu (525) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 19, 2010
2008 bottle. Pours a dark copper to brown hazy color with a thin light beige head. Aroma of old dark fruits, oak, wine, liquorice and spice. Flavors are strong and complex, of dark berries and ripe bananas, oak and wine, liquore. Good carbonation, bitter, sour and tart, dry with a long lasting liquor finish. Very enjoyable, tonns of rich flavors, changes as you drink. A top brew.

skortila (5106) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAY 17, 2010
Bottled @ UDRM. The aroma has sweetish berries and cherries, some wine and malts. Bit hazy, orange-brown coloured beer with an off-white, lasting head. The taste is sweet, caramel malty with a lot of fruits, some raisin. More alcoholic towards the end. Enjoyable.

SuzyGreenberg (1603) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 13, 2010
750 ml bottle; shared by Mr. MJ himself during SBW ’09; reddish brown with fizzy off-white head; yummy aromas of red wine, yeasty spices and tart apples; fluffy, delicate mouthfeel and quite vinous; sort of reminds me of T20 with a delicate level of sourness and lovely texture

Defreni (2920) - Husum, DENMARK - MAY 7, 2010
Flaske: Ravfarvet let uklar øl med et lille skumhoved. Duften er tydelig rødvinspræget med en let syrlig note. Man er dog ikke i tvivl om at det er en øl. Fantastisk kompleks smag af rødvin humle, alkohol og en smule tørret frugt. Fantastisk øl med lag på lag, som et løg ikke en lagkage.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 24, 2010
Bottle shared by fonefan on 8/28/09: Pours a transparent dark copper amber with a well-lacing off-white head. Aroma of sweet toasty caramel with light fruity esters and nice vinous oaky complexity. Starts with good malty sweetness and caramel toffee with lots of light fruity notes and good vinous oaky balance before a warming finish. This should age very well, but is quite enjoyable now.

bierkoning (11932) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - APR 14, 2010
Corked bottle @ UDRM, Oirschot. Cognac and tropical dried fruit in the aroma and flavor. Fruity and lemony notes with brandy. A big beer.
