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.

Bottle from City Beer Store in SF. Strange opaque purplish brown color, didn’t pour much head. Pungent aroma of molasses, yeast, generic fruit, alcohol. Spicy fruity hop taste up front, caramel malt in the middle, smooths out nicely with a kick of alcohol, raspberry, cashews. I like it.

Bottle - Cherry and malty notes. Cloudy dark brown notes. Sweet cherry like notes, dark malts. Light sweet finish. Pleasant and malty.

nathanvc (541) - Brugge, BELGIUM - JUL 31, 2017
Bottle from a Carrefour in Bruges. Pours hazy dark brown with a small, lasting, foamy, off-white head. The aroma contains licorice, especially in the smell, spices, malt, butterscotch and caramel, dried and dark fruits. It tastes medium to heavy sweet, on the verge of cloying, light bitter, with a long light spicy finish. Warming alcohol too. Full body, oily texture, fizzy carbonation. As a Christmas beer, it’s definitely a success. But I could enjoy this every night...

Bottle purchased @ La caisse de bières. Arômes caramel et banane avec une touche sucrée apportée par l’alcool.

AdolfoCC (256) - Veracruz, Veracruz, MEXICO - MAR 7, 2017
APARIENCIA: de color ámbar cobrizo con destellos naranjas a contraluz, se observa cristalina y una alta actividad de carbonatación; corona de espuma color marfil de mediana retención, con burbujas compactas y algunas abiertas. AROMA: frutal y navideño muchos frutos rojos como grosellas, frambuesas, cerezas, además azúcar no procesado, ligeramente caramelo y algo amaderado. El alcohol se percibe bastante. SABOR: diferente al aroma, de inicio predominan las notas a azúcar no procesado, caramelo, muy ligeramente se perciben los frutos rojos, fuerte la presencia del alcohol en cada trago, y después de ello se notan sabores especiados, ligeramente algo de canela y clavo. En el retrogusto queda un amargor ligero alto, algo amaderado y persistencia ligera de sabores dulces y algo muy tenue del especiado. SENSACIÓN: cuerpo medio ligero, mediana carboantación. El alcohol se siente en cada trago así como algo caluroso al correr el líquido por la garganta.
