COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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).

Bought from Beers of Europe. Muddy brown pour with an off-white head. Vinous nose packed full of raisins, wood, tobacco. Rich, warming flavours of chocolate, raisins, oak, pear. Warming, soothing alcohol burn. Sweet, vinous finish. Lovely!

daveshawley (27) - Doylestown, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 14, 2011
2010 vintage from Wegmanís for Valentineís Day. Poured deep, almost opaque, brown with a nice foamy head that dissipates into a thin, off-white lasting froth. Initial aroma is vinous, the rich wine is obvious. Other notes of sour fruit, sweet but woody. Taste is sweet to start that quickly turns sour and tangy. Palate is medium and a little fizzy - not nearly as thick as I had expected. Finish is long, tart, and very enjoyable. The alcohol warmth is noticeable throughout but never overwhelming. Iím lucky that this is so expensive otherwise I might be tempted to drink it regularly!

so nice, this one! one of the best in the world. A good performance from dubuisson. Great deep taste, aroma and an absolute long finish. One point to say is that youíll taste the strong alcohol in it!

ContemplateBeer (1971) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 24, 2011
Aroma of brown sugar, nougat, brandied fruit and sour cherries. Appearance was ruddy brown with tan head. Flavor matched the nose, but with lots of oak notes; the sourness imparted by the barrels was more apparent upon warming, and was also quite boozy. Palate was fizzy and bubbly. A pleasure to drink, just not everyday.

Bottle sample from MatSciGuy. Hazy brown pour and a wonderful sour cherry aroma. Light malt, tart, tangy, fruity and effervescent all the way through. Very enjoyable!

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2011 Bottle. Corked bottle opens up with a nice big pop but no gushing. Poured into to a tulip glass a clear light brownish red orange color wih a slight tiny bubbled head. Nice aroma of light fruit, oak, and red wine. Has an almost slightly slightly sour note in the nose. Light mouhfeel. Starts with a light fruit flavor like apricot and apple which leads to a tanic like wine flavor. Some booze type notes as well. Drinks really nice. Thanks to matsciguy for sharing.
