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).

Pailhead (5675) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JUN 7, 2014
Bottle: The aroma consists of a apple, spice, red wine, alcohol, fruit, perfume, and a hint of vanilla. It pours a transparent orangish-brown with a minimal head...just a stray bubble here and there. The flavor starts with fruit, apple, and citrus. The finish has lemon peel, vinous notes, and a hint of vanilla. It’s medium bodied with soft carbonation.

as a usual Bush de Noël drinker - this is heaven, this is pure bliss. Never drank anything comparable - beer with a heavenly wine arome & slight taste of it. Best of both worlds in one bottle.

750 ml. bottle. Pours a hazy reddish brown with a nice beige head. Aroma of fruit, malt, wood, and alcohol. Taste is dark fruit, malt, wood, spice, caramel, and alcohol. Well made. Excellent.

On est dans le grandiose ! Complexité et équilibre parfait pour cette bière. Le fruit rouge est là juste comme il faut. Excellent produit dont on se souvient longtemps.

The_Osprey (3241) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2014
Vintage 2010. 75cl bottle, corked. Copper brown / red, highly sparkling, big bubbly white head endures. Aroma - initially quite bretty lemon, sherry, oak. Body is medium to full, quite foamy, carbonation is low. Taste - sweet malts, sour notes, sharp alcohol, red wine, old fruit juice, dry woody tannic finish. Great balance but just a little sharp. It’s like a desert wine.

ogivlado (6359) - Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 14, 2014
Bottled 750ml. -from Svijet Piva Zagreb. Cloudy amber coloured, medium sized off-white head that went away fast, notes of red wine in the nose. Ufff...the beginning is loaded with alcohol, fruits and wine like notes. Later on there’s some notes of caramel, wood and spices. Well balanced and complex but a bit too strong alcohol presence. All in all nice one.

Une des meilleures bière! Malgré sont coût élevé reste un plaisir à déguster. Idéalement au "Troll et Bush" avec le plat assorti!

McNeillR (1758) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 7, 2014
Decent golden with a firm sediment like they’re in orbit. Sweet, rich almost sweetcorny fruitness. Lovely sweet, clean and neat. This is superb.

Bottle, February Tasting, Cheers Craig.

MrHangover (3236) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 25, 2014
Bottle shared with friends. Pours a near headless, amber beer. Aroma is very vineous, Port, some booze and oak. Flavor is medium sweet, slight alcoholic and thick mouthfeel. Definitely some oaky touches are present in the aftertaste. Very nice beer.

ABT_S54 (269) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2014
UPDATED: APR 22, 2014 75cl bottle shared in a Trappist glass. Pours a less than clear reddish colour with a good head. Aroma is sweetness and alcohol. The taste is almost winelike and suggestions of the oak barrels with an aftertaste of overripe apples. Hides it ABV almost too well - you would never guess this was 13%. Wonderful. If you can find it try it.
