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).

750mL celebrating my best friend’s first house buy and my 5400th rating. Pours hazy deep red, fizzing out larger beige foam. Almost oud brune wine barrel in the nose with sharp acid cutting head retention. Decent bourbon or rich oak nose but sharper red wine barrel funk. Taste is still on the sweeter side, but there is mild oak spice and red wine blackberry flavor. The sweet tomato and near bourbon character is never overpowering. Palate is effervescent, mild warming alcohol, cinnamon spice. Mild lactic balance. Really good. The real deal.

I think my 2011 Commemorative bottle is this one, as this was certainly different from the others. The best Scaldis I’ve had as it hid the alcohol the best. A great caramel malt flavor. Really quite nice.

UPDATED: APR 28, 2014 2012 bottle given to me at Christmas by the wife. Having it for Valentine’s day, 2013. Pours a nice amber color with big hea that recedes quickly like a sour. Aromatic and fizzy bubbles. Aroma of strong sout cherry (unexpected), some plum or pear, hints of grape. Smells great. Look, feel and smell of a sour. Brett is present in aroma and flavor. Flavor is smooth cherries almost exclusively, sour kick on the finish with some lingering alcohol. A slightly dry oak finish. Really not what I was expecting. Medium mouthfeel that drinks very easily. Nice beer and not sure how to describe the style. Somewhere between a sweet dubbel and a kriek.

This is about as refined as beer gets. I could list about ten fruit flavours that I found in the nose. A hint of wild yeast. Full, round and deceptively drinkable. Has that big Belgian spirit, slightly tamed, but with the added nuiance of the barrel, yeast and obviously top class wine. A real treat. Thanks Tim.

Deep amber red color. Sour, vinous nose with lots of Brett, apricot, raspberries and cotton candy. Sour start then oak and oak, wood, apricot, red wine comes in, tons of yeast, dry, full body, but alcohol so well hidden. Perfectly balanced. Tartness just shines throughout. Beautifully sour, oaky with apricot and raspberries finish with Brett. Completely different than anything I’ve tried and so amazing.

CharlieNoodles (80) - Toulouse, FRANCE - FEB 4, 2013
75 cl bottle, thanks to sebletitje. Somewhat hazy copper/amber beer with an offwhite head. Sourish vinous aroma, fruity, quite evident oak, leather aroma, dry woody, some red wine, berries, apples, grapes, figs,some almond, biscuits, notes of vinegar, sweetish, cork, red berries, acidic, hazelnuts and some brown sugar. Oaky flavor, vinous, some alcohol, vinegar, berries, hay notes, almond, red wine, vanilla notes. Great beer, just a little too much alcohol showing to take it all the way to the top. Woody finish, leather, berries and alcohol.

MoritzF (8389) - Bochum, GERMANY - JAN 31, 2013
(bottle, 75cl) Hazy, amber colour with a short and tanned foamy layer. Moderately sweet and slightly sour dark malty aroma with vinous, almost Tawney-like fruity and woody notes, accompanied by caramel, hints of cellar and shades of alcohol. Moderately sweet and delicately sour-tart flavour, full bodied with a smoothly carbonated mouthfeel. Mildly toasted malty taste with loads of vinous berry fruits on a woody background; sweet and delicately bitter finish with vinous, slightly acidic fruity flavours, vanilla and a well-integrated alcoholic strength. A very pleasant barrel-aged strong Ale. 26.XII.12

UPDATED: SEP 27, 2013 Great beer! Unic, I loved it! Deep orange-brown beer, small head. Very woody/acetic smell, extremely liquorous, raisins too. Sweet taste too, but perfectly balanced by the huge alcohol rate. Extremely warm beer, very smooth. Great!

Wow! Un galopin m’a été offert au passage dans une soirée trop chaotique pour en faire une vraie critique....Très élégant avec de multiples nuances. Je me souviens que le corps était activé par une effervescence tranchante et son alcool était enfouie derrière le brillant vieillissement.
