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).

Rubin77 (1122) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - FEB 29, 2016
F: not very big, off-white, quick gone but for such a beer it´s ok. C: reddish to brownish, a little hazy. A: red wine, oak barrel, hint of honey, vinous sour tones, caramel, sherry, hint of barnyard, berries, herbal spicy. T: tartness of red wine, oak barrel, some earthy, light honey, dry vinous finish, wood, berries, light candy, medium body, lower carbonated, lingering sherry on the palate, interesting complex beer reminds me good lambics but this is even more complex as it ages in wine barrels, worth to try but at almost ambient temperature, 0,75l bottle from Delhaize bought in December 2015.

glennmastrange (2685) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - FEB 9, 2016
Bottle. Moderate caramel, cereal and nuts for the malt, light herbs and citrus for the hops, light to moderate dough and broth for the yeast, with date, raisin, ripe banana, toffee and a hint of vinegar. Head is average sized, frothy, light beige, with thick but slippery lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is slightly hazy burgundy. Flavor starts lightly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes lightly to moderately sweet and acidic and lightly bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, slick with a fizzy carbonation and a tangy finish. A savory aroma, and a great mix of sweet and tangy in the flavor. A top notch Belgian Strong Ale.

750 C&C bottle (2012) thanks to Mac Boost from the 2015 FBW adneilsen Photoshop contest! Gusher upon opening. Poured a dirty brown color with a big foamy tan head. Aroma of red wine, oak, Belgian yeast, funk, and hints of vinegar. Taste of amber malts, nut shell, oak, funk, and red grapes.

King_Alex_II (1228) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 16, 2016
Clear brown color with little foam. Sour nose with light vinegar aromas. The beer tastes like dry bread dipped into delightfully sour vinegar. Calm dryish vinegar aftertaste.

maekchu (3513) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JAN 4, 2016
Bottle. Smooth nose, with lightly spiced aged fruit, and dark honey. Hazy light copper/brown color, with thick, persistent lace. Beautiful array of matured fruit, lightly tart stone fruit in mid palate, small sugary sweetness lasts and lasts. Complexity and overall balance is amazing. Full-bodied, rich, and exceptionally smooth.

KyotoLefty (9405) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 3, 2016
2012 bottle, bought outside of Leuven. Fantastic nose or grape, caramel, vanilla. Not all that pretty: a kind of cloudy orange-brown color with a huge, airy head. Huge flavors: grapes, wood, figs, vanilla. Very creamy, with a lovely soft carbonations. Nice tartness in the background. Smooth and silky. A lovely beer.

Syfher (330) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 2, 2016
Bottle of 75cl, in a Trappist glass; room-temperature. One of the great beer I’ve taste. Powerfull, with a great colour and taste. The subtle mix of beer and wine is far more than great. Try it, you won’t regret it !

Janishaaaa (9) - LATVIA - DEC 10, 2015 does not count
Nice, long drinking beer, with lots of complicated aroma in taste: raisins, caramel, vine and yes - it is strong, but overall well balanced beer. Nice experience.
