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).

Benzai (11323) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 15, 2012
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.

Bov (10914) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 24, 2008
courtesy of Pascal Sauser - cloudy brown colour, little beige foam; very straight notes of wood; vinous and with a touch of vinegar; some astringence, sweet and full-bodied; acidic and quite aggressive; sweetish woody and malty caramleish aftertaste - deeply lacking of subtlety and without complicity between the beer and the cask; definitely needs some ageing

Hazy amber with medium off white head. Sour aroma with lactic, toasted malt and caramel notes. Sour flavour with overripe fruits, alcohol and sour berries. Finished sweet with plenty of lacto bacteria to tell me that I love sours! thanks yespr by the way this one finished dry.

Aroma is yeasty, malty, fruity, vanilla, wood, and some light funky notes. Flavor is great. Sweet and tart mix wonderfully here. The red wine notes are in harmony with the sweet fruits, caramel and malt. Nice, damn damn nice!

hopscotch (10265) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 17, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2009 Bottle... C&PísLYFO Throwdown... Cloudy, caramel-colored ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Fantastic retention. The aroma is a bit muted, but Iím able to pull pleasant, toasted notes of caramel, wood and red wine out of the glass. Full-bodied with lively carbonation. Sweet, boozy, caramel flavor with sufficient bitterness to prevent it from being cloying. Additional, vinous notations of red wine and medium sherry. The lengthy, lightly bitter, mildly boozy finish dries out at the very end. Big thanks to miketd for bringing this beer to the Throwdown! Video = http://homepage.mac.com/maltajo/RATEBEER/iMovieThe

hopdog (10255) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 24, 2009
750ml, expensive as_, bottle. Poured a medium to deeper and cloudy amber color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of wood, grapes, cherries, oak, vinous, and slightly funky. My 6.5 year old wanted to smell it and without prompting told me it smelled like grapes. Tastes of cherries, oaky/woodiness, vanilla, caramel, and some fruitiness. Alcohol content well hidden with a nice smooth and easy to drink body.

Maria (10190) - 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.

Scopey (10026) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2012
Bottle from BVS, Brussels. It pours cloudy dark orange-amber with suspended particles and a fizzy off-white head. The nose is caramel, vinous, jam, grape skin, raspberry yoghurt, gingerbread, wood, prune and date. The taste is caramel, wood, leather, vinous, tart red grape, cherry, plum skin, sherbet, orange peel, spice, hint of vanilla, earth and some alcohol warmth. Medium body and effervescent carbonation. An elegent brew... good depth of flavour, tartness and balance.
