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.

Gerbeer (3412) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - NOV 17, 2012
330 ml bottle. Pours a dark mahogany with medium head of big bubbles that dissipates quickly. Aromas of brown sugar, malts, and golden raisins. Alcohol taste very present and distracting. Bitter for a winter beer. Flavors of toasted malts, raisins/dates, and hops.

On tap at the York River Landing. This would be a great beer to swap for Christmas pudding -- itís sweet, malty, and faintly boozy, and just smelling it reminded me of Christmas.

kaserov (421) - Oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 24, 2017
Color rojizo, translķcido, con capa de espuma de un blanco algo sucio de tres dedos de grosor (textura jabonosa y buena retenciůn). Carbonataciůn a tope (si bien en boca no estŠ tan presente, visualmente es una de las cervezas mŠs carbonatadas que he visto). Aroma a malta, caramelo, ligeramente frutal y especiado, con alcohol muy presente. Sabor que sigue al aroma, dulce en boca, con final amargo y alcohůlico. Pese a tener 12%, el alcohol no estŠ tan presente como esperaba. De todas formas, no veo nada reseŮable que pueda justificar la elevada puntuaciůn del resto de usuarios. Decente y rica, pero muy lejos de la calidad de ciertas cervezas belgas.

Myonlyvice (223) - DENMARK - JAN 18, 2017
Hazy brown with an off white head. Aroma of raisins, spice, yeast and caramel. There was a freshness to the taste at first. Like apple, but sweet and spice notes took over soon and where overpowering. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
