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).

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.

bytemesis (3018) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Bottle, shared at a New Years party. Pours clear deep amber with a large beige head and minimal lacing. Aroma is tart cherry, caramel toffee, wood, red wine. Flavor is about the same, medium sweet with a light tartness that I wasn’t expecting but was very nice. Medium body with a warming finish due to the ABV. Very nice beer.

ShivanDragon (1441) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - JAN 4, 2013
vintage 2009, 75 cl, rood/bruin met minimale witte kraag.
aroma: behoorlijk overheersende wijn geuren, zoetigheid, toffee, caramel en rood-fruit.
smaak: fruit, wijn, zurig, moutig, caramel, toffee.
afdronk: iets aan de wrange kant, deze tonen overheersen wat.
persoonlijk vond ik de scaldis noel beter.

Martinus (2744) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2013
Clear fox red colour, off-white head. Aroma of wine, red berries, malt, vanilla, honey, caramel, wood and dried fruits. Rather sweet flavour, honey, caramel, malts, wine, light astringent, light sour touch. Full body, dry but sweet finish, malts, caramel, vanilla and wine.
Nice one.

The taste is caramel, wood, leather, vinous, tart red grape, cherry, plum skin, sherbet, orange peel, spice, hint of vanilla, earth and some alcohol warmth. Medium body and effervescent carbonation. An elegent brew... good depth of flavour, tartness and balance.

Bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a murky amber color with a big pillowy beige head. The aroma had caramel sweetness, dark fruits, vinous notes, wood, vanilla and alcohol. The flavor is sweet caramel, fruity, oak, vinous, and alcohol. The bottle we had was a touch hot with prickly carbonation. Maybe this just needed to sit for a while.

77ships (3592) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - DEC 25, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2013 75 cl. bottle sample @ 18th Christmasbeer festival in Essen. Comparable wine / barrel profile to Prestige & RR Consecration – same barrels used (Prestige & this, not Consecration & this), I believe. This one hasn’t got the weird additional flavours, much clearer, more wine, great stuff. Dark amber / fox red with a white head on the sides. Nose is very vinous, lots of sweeter red wine, red wine grapes, sweetly fruity, oak. Taste is sour grapes, lots of old wine soaked wood, Bordeaux, red wine, sugar, malts, some herbs, oaky in the back, light tannin’s, candy, vanilla, ripe fruits. Cleared out body, some oak dryness. Lovely stuff – really elevates the base, great wine (lots) added. ///// Tried again 75 cl. bottle consumed about half @ home. 2013 Vintage. Not too long after release prob. Very impressive beer, carries a very distinct & unique yoghurt sourness to it with very heavy intring spice like wine barrels, lots of old strong dark fruits. Should take proper notes next time 4.4 -> 4.7 for now.
