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).

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 you’ll taste the strong alcohol in it!

Bottle thanks to TheCheeseMan! Slightly sour aroma with a big sweet malty flavor full of nuts, yeast, and more.

ContemplateBeer (1925) - 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.

Bottle shared by matsciguy. Pour is cloudy copper with nice frothy head that settles to a collar around glass. Aroma is sour funky fruit. Taste is sweet and sour fruit with a tangy malty finish. Palate is medium feel with solid carbonation and a chaulky finish. Very good!

caesar (6367) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JAN 6, 2011
Bottled thx to jerohen. Dark brown color, medium head. Aroma of a spicy and sweet belgian strong ale, fruity esters, slight yeasty, chocolat, roasted malt. And then mixed with burgundy red wine, very fruity, grapes. Smooth oak and sourness added to the belgian strong ale. Nice combination, but to be honest not perfectly in balance. It almost tastes like wine and belgian strong ale mixed with each other. It still is tasty tho.

jerohen (2151) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2011
Bottled, 2009 vintage. Copper colored, medium head. Nose really resembles a red wine, fruit notes, alcohol. Complex flavor, fruity, sour, some wood, perhaps some vanilla. Lasting finish. A good beer, the Bourgogne barrel aging clearly left its marks. However, too expensive for what you get to drink this more often.

Not as good as Scaldis Noel but pretty good just the same. Pours a murky brown with a decent tan head. Lively carbonation. The aroma is very sweet and fruity along with some spice and bread. The flavor is fruity sweet up front, then malty, finishing very warm and soothing. Quite smooth.

Funky tart edge. Hazy dark copper color with no head. Excellent smooth but complex with nice funky tartness. Notes: Kerstbier Festival ’10
