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).

Christian (11260) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 30, 2009
Cloudy amber with a small off-white head. Complex aroma of wine, tannins, and berries. Sweetish flavour dominated by the oak, with vineous alcohol warmth. Tannin tartness in the finish

thewolf (11209) - Kolding, DENMARK - FEB 18, 2009
Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph.
Enjoyed to the Aab - Deportivo match.
Pours almost completely red with a slight haze to it. Head is small, rather fizzy with low duration. Tarty aroma with grapes, wood, brett, prunes, vanilla, blackberries. Medium carbonation, superb creamy and oily mouthfeel. Flavour is vinious, no doubt about that, but it seems incredibly balanced. Sweet caramel malts with prunes, plums and raisins mix wonderfully well with grapes and light red whine notes. Some brett-like tartness and dryness as well. Truly incredibly balanced.

Tmoney99 (10986) - 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.

Koelschtrinker (10966) - 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

Maria (10176) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 25, 2008
It is red-brown (most red) with a small head. Wow, the aroma sweeps me off my feet. It is vinous with notes of fruits (dark and lighter ones), a light sourness and vinegar (like in the very best sour beers), a light sweetness, malt and raisin. The flavour has sweetness and a pleasant sourness, notes of wood, red wine, fruit, raisin, figs, grapes, malt, caramel and light citrus. The balance is unique, this clearly is one of the very best Belgian beers I have had.
