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).

daveshawley (25) - Doylestown, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 14, 2011
2010 vintage from Wegman’s for Valentine’s Day. Poured deep, almost opaque, brown with a nice foamy head that dissipates into a thin, off-white lasting froth. Initial aroma is vinous, the rich wine is obvious. Other notes of sour fruit, sweet but woody. Taste is sweet to start that quickly turns sour and tangy. Palate is medium and a little fizzy - not nearly as thick as I had expected. Finish is long, tart, and very enjoyable. The alcohol warmth is noticeable throughout but never overwhelming. I’m lucky that this is so expensive otherwise I might be tempted to drink it regularly!

Thank you mortlach for the tip and many thanks to Dirk and Leen for being so attentive to our demanding requests :-) Pours amber clear with a decent white head. Nose is spirit, malty vinous notes. Mouth: slightly tart feel, sour in a way, light feel of liquor with a background of sugar. Nice one!

SlackerMads (1869) - DENMARK - MAR 14, 2015
Bottle shared with MF666 because we can take it. Cuvée Spéciale 2009. Hazy brown with a small off white head. Sour berries in the nose. Also berries in the flavour, wood, musty, light barnyard. Some light brown sugar and tobacco, pepper. Medium body, light/medium acidic and medium sweet. Carries the alcohol really well even though it feels pretty light bodied. Interesting beer for sure, but also a bit hefty.

Found this tasty beer in the local bargain bin for $10. Reddish-brown pour with a beige head. Aroma is fruity and oak. Taste is fruity, oak, light carbonation, dry aftertaste. So good, so tasty. The fruit taste has wine characteristics. 13 % alc. well hidden, but felt by the end of the drink.

KoNrRiI (639) - Århus, DENMARK - JAN 31, 2015
0.75 bottle. Very dark brown color and a reddish, tanned, medium-sized head of good retention. Aroma of dark fruits, delicate malts, some chocolate, and a tad of alcohol. Very sweet taste of dark fruits, some caramel, earth, and various nuts. Medium to full body, creamy texture, and a lively carbonation. Finish is full of dark fruits, nuts, raisins, a lot of earthy tones, and some spices; it tends to stick up the throat. Overall a great beer, not subtle in any manner but full of character - though this lack of subtlety also brings some unwanted alcoholic tastes.
