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).

Ljunkan (530) - NORWAY - APR 26, 2009
Bottle, thanks to Weine. Hazy amber color, small head. Aroma is fruity with notes of honey, caramel/toffee, some oak and some light funky notes. Flavour is a bit acidic/tart with some oak/wood, some sweeter caramel and honey notes, ending with some warming alcohol. Medium to full body, quite smooth. Interesting one.

sayravai (4677) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 10, 2009
(Bottled, 0.75l) Hazy dark red with a smallish, tanned, firm and lasting head. One of the loudest pops ever heard from a beer bottle. Deliciously tart and earthy, very red-wineous aroma with oak barrel, peppery spiciness, cellar. Very fruity flavor with some alcohol presence, some oak barrel, not as tart as the aroma, but with clear red wine notes. Long red wine aftertaste with tannins present. Well hidden alcohol. Yeast brings in even more intense fruitiness, that blends beautifully with the oaky tannins and red wine flavors. Medium body, surprisingly fizzy and carbonated for such a strong beer. A very enjoyable beer-wine marriage.

xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - APR 7, 2009
Bottle thanks to Kan for sharing. Murky amber with small beige head. Aroma is big barrel in the front with grapes, wild yeast, more pedio than brett, nice malt notes as well with caramel, alc. Medium sweet, flavor is similar to the aroma, really intense, really complex, excelent barrel charecteristic and wild yeast. Medium to full body with active carbonation. One of the most interesting beers Iíve had for a long time, would like a bottle of this to lay down.

(750ml bottle) Pours a murky amber body with a small white head. Aroma of barnyard, leather, vinegar, and florals. Flavor of yeast, fruit, lacto, and raisins with the alcohol nice hidden for Dubuisson beer.

theisti (3396) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - MAR 26, 2009
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.

mreusch (851) - Olathe, Kansas, USA - MAR 25, 2009
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.
