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).

Travlr (15608) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 10, 2008
First bottle that Dirk served at the Kulminator, September 2008. Another in the recent trend of champagne beers, a notch above Deus, cloudy amber, acidic and oaky. Tastes of alcohol. Nutty, dry finish. Should age nicely.

yngwie (15188) - 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

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.

Theis (14304) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 28, 2008
Bottle at Bagers - on christmas evening - shared with Mette, Bager, Per & Farmand. Cloudy red/brown - white head. What a lovely beer.... the winecasks helps the Bush de Nöel very much.... it turns it from way too sweet, to nice balanced and very complex. Soapy, citric, wood, nutty, light sourish (the good way), light sweetness, nice hoppy, dark fruits, fruity, caramel.... and so on.. very nice - lovely complexity.

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.
