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).

Theis (15152) - 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.

UPDATED: DEC 16, 2012 Sampled at OBER Kerstbierfestival 2012. A bit unclear amber colored brew, virtually no head. Smell and taste malts, lots of alcohol, some sourness, spicy as well. Pretty sharp and spicy. Fizzy carbonation, medium body. Not my thing.

bhensonb (14170) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 18, 2009
750 shared by Marcus and I at Delerium. Bottle is 2008 Cuvee Special. Pours a dark amber with a decent beige head. Aroma has notes of oak and apple. Sour notes. Body is full and carbonation is fairly strong. Flavor is dark malt, and somewhat plummy sour. Malt is present to offset the sour. Becomes a bit vinous. Sour disappears with time. Changes. Goes really smooth in less than half an hour. Great beer.

Tmoney99 (13609) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 15, 2011
Bottle. Poured a hazy brown with a large frothy light brown head that was fully lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy complex spice, fruit, yeast and alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture with soft carbonation. Moderate yeasty sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Very well done.
