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).

UPDATED: NOV 23, 2009 From Blaire at hamiltons just for complaining that hanssens cassis was flat, which was expected anyway...but blaire was drunk and a free beer was expected as well. Pours a hazed amber..the head stayed thin but full, thick around the edges, and of an off-white head. Nose of mushy apple, some sweetness, some high alcohol refineness, but not necessarily refined in of itself. Flavors packed more apple, caramel, yeasty sweetness...full bodied, boozy, and super clean and sexy. The apple notes are fresh and crisp...the alcohol is strong and always there...nice ale fo sho.

@ a tasting, thanks Shahar, pours deep red with a stable creamy head, aroma of honey, caramel, cherry and red wine, flavor is citrusy with sour cherries, cherry liquor and alcohol warmth, medium to full bodied, sticky texture. Impressive brew

Cloudy amber with a small off-white head. Complex aroma of wine, tannins, and berries. Sweetish flavour dominated by the oak, with vineous alcohol warmth. Tannin tartness in the finish

tomer (2081) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - OCT 29, 2009
At a tasting, many thanks Shachar, small light stable head, hazy light brown with strong reddish taints, aromas of raspberry, vinegar, red wine and spice, flavours of cherry, prunes and vanila oakiness which is probably from the barrels, fruity sweet and sour aftertaste. Excellent.

Stine (1645) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 28, 2009
Rustic thick burnt orange pour. Blueberry, wine barrel, chocolate aroma; heavily tannic and oaky, full and dark. Very fruit with berries and pit fruits, and a bit of honey.

Similarly rich tasting and heavy in wine affectation, but still quite bright. Some nuts, especially pistachio, and definitely lots of alcohol which sometimes is just way too strong. Sugars come out with a watermelon flavor; very juicy and cloyingly sweet in those moments; bubblegum and other herbal yeast flavors mid palate; very dark and bitter with nut skins for a brief moment to offset the sugar.

Crisp but very firm texture; lots of wine afterward, but more dominantly sweet than tannic. Satisfying for flavors, but this concept could have been much much better executed. It needs a less effervescent and more robust base.

Unclear brown of color with a weak beige head. An aroma of sweets, spice, port and wine notes. A flavor of wine, sweak sour, spice and sweets.

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2010 Re-rate 10/20/09: Bottle sample at a tasting. Thanks Shachar. Hazy reddish-amber color. Sweet fruity aroma with spices, lots of oak, caramel, some oaky acidity, candi sugar and vinous notes. Sweetish flavor with fruits, light woody sourness, cookie hints, some spiciness and some sugar. Medium to full-bodied with lively carbonation. A good one. 8/3/7/4/15=3.7

[9/6/09] Bottle sample during a festival at De Heeren van Liedekercke in Denderleeuw. Cloudy amber with lots of floaties. Aroma of lots of fruits, caramel, some cookies, yeast and some spicy hops. Semi-dry flavor with yeast, fruits, spices, alcohol and some sweet malt. Medium-bodied. 7/3/7/3/14=3.4
