COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a sweet beer with a pleasant flavour of hops. Indeed, for Bush de Noel, the brewer uses a traditional process which consists in placing hops flowers in the vats where the beer rests for four to six weeks by which time it will have reached full maturity, giving it a very distinctive taste. In the U.S the label generally reads Scaldis Noel.

limubai99 (9) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - DEC 3, 2001
Initial strong alcohol flavor that overwhelms the palate. Milds as the bottle goes and becomes very pleasant. A surprising blend of sweetness and hops that have a definite holiday spice. I drank it paired with a spicy meal of jerk chicken and salse. The flavros blended perfecly, leaving a warm burn in my chest. A holiday delight.

Sweet caramel malty aroma. Dark hay color, medium off-white head. Sweet, concealed bitterness, alcohol feel. Full body, sticky, long finish.

kaserov (1100) - Oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 9, 2018
Color marrón oscuro, rojizo si le da la luz, translúcido, con capa de espuma de un blanco amarronado de tres dedos de grosor y buena retención. Carbonatación alta. Textura oleosa y chispeante. Aroma a fruta madura, caramelo, recuerdos florales y toques herbales, así como especias. Algo de azúcar moreno. Un mínimo de licor en aroma, nada serio. En boca no es ni por asomo tan dulce como recordaba. Algo de caramelo, fruta madura, fruta confitada, pasas, especias, cognac. Final de ligero amargor, con toques herbales, y licoroso. Alcohol muy presente pero nunca de manera negativa, no quema ni se vuelve astringente. Postgusto a pasas y especias. Sin alardes pero bien.

Butelka z datą : 14/08/2019
AROMAT : Intensywny. Dominują estry (gruszka).
SMAK : Klasycznie: słody (lekki karmel) oraz drożdże (mieszanka fenoli i estrów). Bardzo wysokie nasycenie, nawet jak na styl.
WYGLĄD : Barwa ciemno bursztynowa, opalizujące. Piana drobna, obfita.

yaff (86) - la fontalaye, FRANCE - DEC 30, 2017
à la maison. Bière de Noël forte (12°) qui fait davantage penser à une bière d'abbaye qu'à une scotch. Relativement amère pour ce type de bière , elle s'oriente en bouche vers le miel et la cannelle.

imperial_suchy (335) - Rybnik, POLAND - DEC 27, 2017
Piwo koloru ciemnego bursztyna, klarowne, z obfitą drobnopęcherzykową pianką. W aromacie słodowo, karmelowo, trochę suszonych owoców. Sporo ciała, wysycenie średnie, do wysokiego. W smaku suszone owoce, przyprawy, czuję też delikatne orzechy laskowe. Ogólnie to wszystko średnio intensywne. Dość lekko się pije jak na ten woltaż, alkohol w ogóle nie przeszkadza. Piwo nawet fajne, ale troszkę bez charakteru.

DerGantzel (513) - Aarhus, DENMARK - DEC 27, 2017

Taste has also dried and fresh fruitness as in the aroma, sweetness, some spicyness, some alcohol in the end. Medium bodied, balanced carbonation.
