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).

VDuquerroux (644) - Airvault, FRANCE - MAY 6, 2015
Bottle 75cL. Home alone & the previous day with my dad. A sparkling clear brown beer with a big off-white creamy head ; good retention & lacing. Aroma of grape, prune, dark fruits, alcohol, roast, wood, biscuit. Medium to heavy sweet, warming note, light acid note ; elegant and balanced. Full body, medium silky texture, average to good carbonation, sweet warming finish. Overall, fabulous & delicate ; this beer doesn’t stop time but surely slows it down...

Vintage 2011 Cuvee Speciale. Absolutly Perfect Vintage Beer. What’s a smell, wine and wood. Oak Barrel from Burgund wine taste like perfect old dry wine. I love that stuff. Cudownie pachnace winem, kwaskiem oracz octem, niemal lambick czy Sour Ale. Piana bezowa spora sie tworzy przy takiej mocy zadziwia to, ale szybko opada, szkoda i wtedy przypomina szlachetne wino. Rubinowo miedziana barwa, metna i oleista. Niebywale geste, tresciwe, troche kandyzowanego cukru na ustach, silnie drapiace i szczypiace w podniebienie aromaty i moc tego piwa. Rozgrzewa i pozostawia efekt zadowolenia na dlugi czas. Perfekcyjna kompozycja, elegancja i zarazem dostojna butelka w najlepszym wydaniu. Doskonalle do starzenia, polecam szczegolnie na szczegolne okazje i toasty.

Thanks to Alusmamuts! This one is awesome! Lovely malty background, caramel, enriched with outstanding vinous note, red berries, dried fruits, ripe fruits, oak note, toffee. Some spices, vanilla. Quite intense sweetness balanced with perfect light acidic tartness. Very smooth all the way. Well balanced, complex and highly enjoyable brew. Love it!

Hamirubi (328) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - APR 2, 2015
75cl bottle. The bottle definitely looks bigger than the volume. A brew of three kinds of barleymalt, two aromatic hops - ripened for seen months on wine casks. This is the Bush de Noël, but with full body, a nose of wood, rich of flavours, lovely sweetened.
