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).

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.

Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours an orange sort of mahogany color that swirls around and is topped with a white foamy head. Nose and taste are very similar. Lemon, alcohol, dryness, sweet brown sugar. Dry well-balanced sweet mouthfeel.

BMan1113VR (7822) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 20, 2009
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!

Bottle. Medium horse blanket, apple skins, gets a little sweet as it warms, good Belgian yeast esters, clean. Well done.

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.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 17, 2009
Courtesy miketd. Pours a very lightly hazy, rusty orange-amber color. A small, foamy, off-white head leaves minimal dots of lacing behind. The nose is candyish and sweet up front, with some caramel notes and alot of boozy oak. Initial sweetness turns a bit vinous, as the red wine asserts its alcoholic, lightly acidic presence. Flavors include notes of sweet-tart cherry and lemon candy, with tannic red wine and loads of saturated oak. Medium-plus bodied, lightly syrupy, showing a bit too much alcoholic warmth. Finishes semi-dry. Iím clearly in the minority here, but this brew didnít strike me as anything extra special. Good, but vastly overrated, in my opinion.

hopscotch (8785) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 17, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2009 Bottle... C&PísLYFO Throwdown... Cloudy, caramel-colored ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Fantastic retention. The aroma is a bit muted, but Iím able to pull pleasant, toasted notes of caramel, wood and red wine out of the glass. Full-bodied with lively carbonation. Sweet, boozy, caramel flavor with sufficient bitterness to prevent it from being cloying. Additional, vinous notations of red wine and medium sherry. The lengthy, lightly bitter, mildly boozy finish dries out at the very end. Big thanks to miketd for bringing this beer to the Throwdown! Video = http://homepage.mac.com/maltajo/RATEBEER/iMovieThe

daknole (8867) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 16, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2009 Bottle from the Otown throwdown. miketd rocks and rolls. Hell yeah this is good shit. Amber/toffee color pour wtih a small light head. Aroma is yeasty, malty, fruity, vanilla, wood, and some light funky notes. Flavor is great. Sweet and tart mix wonderfully here. The red wine notes are in harmony with the sweet fruits, caramel and malt. Nice, damn damn nice!

gunhaver (1030) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 15, 2009
C&PLYFOTD: Bottle, courtesy miketd. Copper clear pour, thick white head and very thick lacing. Rich tart nose, some berries and dry oak, with vanilla and unique spices. Very funky and complex flavors, with various spices and a delicious finish. Full-bodied, well-carbonated and the ABV is nowhere to be found. Very drinkable.

Rating #2000. 750ml bottle. but thanks to Kan for sharing. pours hazy amber with off white head. nose of red wine, tannins, brett and pedio yeast, and some alcohol. flavors are slightly sour red wine, sweet toffee malts, alcohol, and ripe red fruit. very lively mouth feel with a dry finish. must of had some bugs in the barrels, sort of like a bigger version of Amazing Grace.
