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).

Alengrin (1330) - BELGIUM - AUG 8, 2014
One of those ales to marvel at, testifying the proximity and influence of French wine culture on Belgian beer culture, which has lead to so many a good beer. Light beige head, bit ’dirty’ copper colour, cloudy. Enticing aroma of so many good things: apple sauce, red wine, oak, bitter honey, black pepper, oranges, sour cream, freshly grated ginger... Sweetish malty taste with a kind of lactic acidity coming up shortly after, drying the sweetness; rounded, smooth maltiness, finishing in a warm oak woodiness and warming, port-like alcohol. The perfect winter warmer indeed, and perhaps a good introduction for wine people into beer.

Pailhead (4783) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JUN 7, 2014
Bottle: The aroma consists of a apple, spice, red wine, alcohol, fruit, perfume, and a hint of vanilla. It pours a transparent orangish-brown with a minimal head...just a stray bubble here and there. The flavor starts with fruit, apple, and citrus. The finish has lemon peel, vinous notes, and a hint of vanilla. It’s medium bodied with soft carbonation.

as a usual Bush de Noël drinker - this is heaven, this is pure bliss. Never drank anything comparable - beer with a heavenly wine arome & slight taste of it. Best of both worlds in one bottle.

On est dans le grandiose ! Complexité et équilibre parfait pour cette bière. Le fruit rouge est là juste comme il faut. Excellent produit dont on se souvient longtemps.

Osprey87 (1618) - WALES - MAR 8, 2014
Vintage 2010. 75cl bottle, corked. Copper brown / red, highly sparkling, big bubbly white head endures. Aroma - initially quite bretty lemon, sherry, oak. Body is medium to full, quite foamy, carbonation is low. Taste - sweet malts, sour notes, sharp alcohol, red wine, old fruit juice, dry woody tannic finish. Great balance but just a little sharp. It’s like a desert wine.

ogivlado (5672) - Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 14, 2014
Bottled 750ml. -from Svijet Piva Zagreb. Cloudy amber coloured, medium sized off-white head that went away fast, notes of red wine in the nose. Ufff...the beginning is loaded with alcohol, fruits and wine like notes. Later on there’s some notes of caramel, wood and spices. Well balanced and complex but a bit too strong alcohol presence. All in all nice one.
