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).

2010 vintage from Wegman’s for Valentine’s 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. I’m lucky that this is so expensive otherwise I might be tempted to drink it regularly!

Excellent beer. Pours deep brown with a decent tan head. Full and complex nose and flavor. Caramel, toffee, dark fruit, vinous notes and wood.

Reconstructed from old rating, seems to have vanished. Dark amber coloured and almost clear. Has a white head, lasting. Aroma is sweet, vanilla, notes of port-wine, fruit. Sweet flavor, warming alcohol. Creamy texture.

In bottle (2013 vintage); really enjoyed this one as it is quite different. AT first, aroma was of peach and nectarine when chilled, as it warmed it turned to apple and vanilla. Very smooth and easy drinking given the alcohol % ... I would absolutely buy this one again (if I can)

La Bush de Nuits existe depuis 2008. Elle est faite à partir de la Bush de Noël mûri dans des foudres de bois ayant contenu précédemment du Bourgogne de Nuits St Georges. Par la suite, elle est mise en bouteille de 75 cl et placée, comme la Bush Prestige, en chambre chaude pour une troisième refermentation. Le résultat final donne une bière de caractère, qui par son passage dans les fûts de vins dégage de fins arômes de raisins et vous offre une bouche qui ravira les palets amateurs de bons vins. Derrière cette finesse, la Bush de Nuits Cuvée 2013 reste une strong ale qui cote à 13% au fort caractère et donc une excellente bière de dégustation pour les amoureux de la boisson mousseuse.

Alengrin (2065) - BELGIUM - AUG 8, 2014
One of those ales to marvel at, testifying the proximity and influence of French wine culture on Belgian beer culture, which has lead to so many a good beer. Light beige head, bit ’dirty’ copper colour, cloudy. Enticing aroma of so many good things: apple sauce, red wine, oak, bitter honey, black pepper, oranges, sour cream, freshly grated ginger... Sweetish malty taste with a kind of lactic acidity coming up shortly after, drying the sweetness; rounded, smooth maltiness, finishing in a warm oak woodiness and warming, port-like alcohol. The perfect winter warmer indeed, and perhaps a good introduction for wine people into beer.

Pailhead (4897) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JUN 7, 2014
Bottle: The aroma consists of a apple, spice, red wine, alcohol, fruit, perfume, and a hint of vanilla. It pours a transparent orangish-brown with a minimal head...just a stray bubble here and there. The flavor starts with fruit, apple, and citrus. The finish has lemon peel, vinous notes, and a hint of vanilla. It’s medium bodied with soft carbonation.

as a usual Bush de Noël drinker - this is heaven, this is pure bliss. Never drank anything comparable - beer with a heavenly wine arome & slight taste of it. Best of both worlds in one bottle.
