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).

ABT_S54 (119) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2014
UPDATED: APR 22, 2014 75cl bottle shared in a Trappist glass. Pours a less than clear reddish colour with a good head. Aroma is sweetness and alcohol. The taste is almost winelike and suggestions of the oak barrels with an aftertaste of overripe apples. Hides it ABV almost too well - you would never guess this was 13%. Wonderful. If you can find it try it.

Bottle, vintage 2010. Pours hazy dark golden with sediments, with a finger thick creamy head. Aroma is roasted malts and kandi, as well as sweet fruity notes of canned cherries with honey and heathery spices. Full creamy body with average carbonation. Flavour is sweet with roasted malts, as well as fruity yeast with some sour notes of apples and cherries finishing off with vanilla and oak barrels. Well hidden alcohol.

SuperTiti33 (447) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 25, 2013
Ambrée/rougeâtre. Voilée avec quelques sédiments au fond. Nez acide. Vin rouge. Porto jeune. Épicé. Girofle. "Flandre". Vinaigre balsamique. Fruité. Surtout baie. Framboise. Mûres. Cassis (crème de cassis). Alcool. Bois. Très complexe. Semble sucré. Caramel. Pomme verte. Canneberge. Cannelle. Bouche: très sucré avec une grande acidité. Aqueuse. Saline. Caramel. Fruité. Encore beaucoup de baies. Liquoreuse jusqu'à la fin. Brûlure d'alcool rappelant une liqueur de fruit (Crème de cassis ou porto). Boisé (vin rouge). Poivrée. Vinaigre balsamique vieillie. Florale (rose). Romarin. Confiture de fraise. Une bière absolument sublime et énormément complexe et savoureuse mais mon coeur se penche légèrement sur la bush prestige régulière.

Tomy63 (176) - Clermont-Ferrand, FRANCE - NOV 25, 2013
Bush de Noël avec un vieillissement de 6-7 mois en fûts de Nuits-Saint-Georges. Couleur ambre foncé avec des reflets rouges. Nez sur les fruits secs, les fruits rouges (mûres, prunes, cerises noires...), un peu d’amande aussi. Bouche puissante, vineuse, sur la noix, la noisette, légèrement boisée avec à nouveau des fruits cuits (pruneaux, prunes, fruits rouges et noirs). Longue finale. A boire sur des viandes.

Light brown color and well carbonated. Sweet vanilla with oak, and the alcohol is perceivable in the flavor, which is lightly sweet as well. A great beer.
