COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like the Brasserie Dubuissonís 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 NoŽl, ripened for 7 months on wine casks from Burgundy (Nuits-St.-Georges).

750mL bottle, courtesy of toncatcher at WeeHeavy’s 2000th tasting. Thanks, Dennis! Higher carbonation. Amber color. Some alcohol in the nose. Somewhere between fresh pannepot and westy. Slightly sweet. Very good, but marginally a top 50.

mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - MAR 15, 2009
Courtesy miketd. Pours a dark caramel brown, with a small off white head. Really dug the nose. Lots of swet tannic fruits, oak, and malts. A little vinuous as well. the flavor was good, but not as tempting as the aroma. Pretty tart and sour for a belgian strong Ale. The vinuous characters really show up and lots of sweet tart fruits and dark malts are evident for some balance. Very tasty brew, and not what I was expecting.

GranvilleTim (1840) - Granville, Illinois, USA - MAR 3, 2015
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.

500th Belgian beer. 2009 bottle. Reddish brown with a small to medium head. Fruity wooden and alcohol smell. Light sour wooden fruity, grapes, Raisins, taste. A bit wines taste, not complete my thing, but can understand others like it.

BMMillsy (1788) - Florida, USA - FEB 14, 2013
UPDATED: APR 28, 2014 2012 bottle given to me at Christmas by the wife. Having it for Valentineís day, 2013. Pours a nice amber color with big hea that recedes quickly like a sour. Aromatic and fizzy bubbles. Aroma of strong sout cherry (unexpected), some plum or pear, hints of grape. Smells great. Look, feel and smell of a sour. Brett is present in aroma and flavor. Flavor is smooth cherries almost exclusively, sour kick on the finish with some lingering alcohol. A slightly dry oak finish. Really not what I was expecting. Medium mouthfeel that drinks very easily. Nice beer and not sure how to describe the style. Somewhere between a sweet dubbel and a kriek.

zathrus13 (1761) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - AUG 21, 2009
Bottle, thanks Keith. Pours cloudy copper/brown, with an off white head. Aroma is oak, wine, and fruit. Flavor is fruit, wine, oak, alcohol, and malt. Medium body, and a fairly long finish. Gets a little better as it warms. Really enjoy this one, wish it was more readily available.

Stine (1745) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 28, 2009
Rustic thick burnt orange pour. Blueberry, wine barrel, chocolate aroma; heavily tannic and oaky, full and dark. Very fruit with berries and pit fruits, and a bit of honey.

Similarly rich tasting and heavy in wine affectation, but still quite bright. Some nuts, especially pistachio, and definitely lots of alcohol which sometimes is just way too strong. Sugars come out with a watermelon flavor; very juicy and cloyingly sweet in those moments; bubblegum and other herbal yeast flavors mid palate; very dark and bitter with nut skins for a brief moment to offset the sugar.

Crisp but very firm texture; lots of wine afterward, but more dominantly sweet than tannic. Satisfying for flavors, but this concept could have been much much better executed. It needs a less effervescent and more robust base.

gEUS (1685) - Linden, BELGIUM - MAY 3, 2013
750 ml bottle at home - taken from notes. Pours a brownish amber with no head. Artoma is unbelievably Bourgundy, balancing the original beer with fine sour notes. This is in my humble opinion a worthy "adversary" of the DDB Stille Nacht Reserva - Pinot Noir barrels well chosen for this beer. Definite like!
