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).

fiulijn (19119) - 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.

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.

Koelschtrinker (17292) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 1, 2011
Intensiv hefiger Antrunk mit übertriebener Alkoholigkeit. Dies überrascht, dennd as Bier ist ansonsten eher mau und zeigt, abgesehen vom Antrunk, keine weiteren intensiven Aromen. Minimal nussig, hier noch wenig hefig. Schlichter Abgang mit wenig Süße. /9/9/9/fl/9

harrisoni (17278) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2009
Bottle at the Spotify tasting. Barrel aged funk. Pretty good in mouth. Lovely toffee and subtle toasted nutty woodiness. Some decent fruit. Very good and a lot better than I was expecting.

yngwie (16503) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 17, 2011
Bottle, 75cl corked, at Bier Central. It pours an unclear, reddish amber to brown body and a dense, light beige head. The aroma is intense and lovely. Vinous and slightly acetic. Slightly woody and a bit sweetish, with the alcohol sure present. Some peppery notes. Very warming on the palate, full-bodied and smooth, with a fine blend of flavors. Red wine, vinegar, dark fruits, sugar, hints of dried fruits and a yeasty hint. Super-long finish, where the warmth stays the longest time. A true beauty. Just lovely. 110429

TBone (16159) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 25, 2011
Bottled 750ml (BZ, vintage 2011)
Deep ruby-brown color, small off-white head. Aroma is a bit sour, tart, cellary, oak, red wine/tannines, some fruits. Medium to full-bodied. Flavor has Belgian yeasty fruityness, toffee and then evident tannines, red grapes from Burgundy barrel. Alcohol - of course - but much less than in normal Bush-beers. Complex brew.
