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).

puzzl (3249) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 1, 2009
Bottle from Brad, my man. Darkish pour with a thin, fleeting head, a minor amount of yeast at the bottom of the bottle. Aroma is undoubtedly wine-barrel oak, sweet grapes and mint, cucumber, licorice, a fair bit of mellowed, old Belgian yeast and some licorice. The flavor is rich and pure, malt and wine forward with a lovely, low carbonation body. Very drinkable and not too boozy. Some plum and cream of wheat and corn meal. Balanced and delicious. Not the "in your face" style of beer that normally dominates the top 50, instead a lovingly crafted, mellow and delicate example. Quite nice.

Dedollewaitor (13802) - Odense, DENMARK - JAN 8, 2009
75cl bottle from VinensVerden, Odense. Pours amber/orange with a small creamy head. Nose and taste is of yeast, orange, prunes, figs, alcohol, caramel, wood , red wine, and nuts. Both sweet and sour in a balanced way. Full bodied with a medium to low carbonation. Very vinous, matured and complex. Lovely!

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 6, 2009
<i>Tasting at Papsoe</i>
Hazy dark amber color; small creamy head. The ageing in the wine barrels left a nice fruity and sour aroma, vinous and woody, very light chemical products, light alcohol. Good body strength, some sweetness but not cloying, caramel flavor with some fruiteness; together with the alcohol they create a paint remover feeling. At the end the alcohol starts warming. The aroma is wonderful, the flavor is good.

Light brown coloured beer with small white head and floks of yeast visible. Very alcoholic herby aroma. Full sparkling palate. Finish is very alcoholic . Just over the limit of alcohol to be super.

Fin (7343) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2009
Bottle that was very kindly picked up for me by Loz’s parents in Bruges, Belgium, Oct 08, many thanks, consumed with my dad and others 31-12-08. Pours chesnut in colour with a little cloudiness. Aroma is sweet and sour, wet wood and with some nuts, quite lovely. Wonderfully warming but the alcohol never intrudes. Fruity, oaky, lovely sourness, a stunner and nice that a beer lived up to my high expectations of it. I wish I’d have got a couple, because I reckon with a couple of years on this it will taste even better A8 A4 F8 P5 OV 17 4.2

SHIG (3561) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - DEC 31, 2008
Bottle: Poured a chestnut brown with a thin white head. The aroma is winey fruit and wood. Taste is more of the same with a winey fruit and alcohol, some sour wood hints as well. I actually think I prefer the regular Bush de Noel, but then again I am a beer drinker not a fine wine drinker.

Theis (13353) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 28, 2008
Bottle at Bagers - on christmas evening - shared with Mette, Bager, Per & Farmand. Cloudy red/brown - white head. What a lovely beer.... the winecasks helps the Bush de Nöel very much.... it turns it from way too sweet, to nice balanced and very complex. Soapy, citric, wood, nutty, light sourish (the good way), light sweetness, nice hoppy, dark fruits, fruity, caramel.... and so on.. very nice - lovely complexity.

Bottle. Hazy red/brown body with a medium white head. Aroma is fruit, dark fruit and a bit sourness. Taste is fruit, dark fruit, sour, some alcohol. When it enters the mouth it explodes, afterwards it is soft as silk. This is a lovely beer.
