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.

Orange/reddish body with a small head of white bubbles. Fruity, lemon, honey in the aroma. Some lemon, along with earthy bitterness, and just a bit of sweetness. A lingering bitterness at the finish. Rather medium mouthfeel.

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.

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

john44 (3000) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2017
Bottle. BBE date Sept 2010; Drank July 2009 - Red-Amber in colour. Vinous. Yeasty; lots of floaties and sediment. Spicy; cinnamon. Malty; caramel, toffee, roasty malts, hint of chocolate. Fruity; raisins, apples. Hoppy; peppery & grassy hops. Not surprisingly, the alcohol is quite noticeable. Sweet malty throughout leading to a very dry finish. (2009-07)

EdKing (2529) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2017
Bottle from Beer Gonzo. Clear reddish to tawny brown in the glass with no head. Nose is sweet, candy sugar, brown sugar, raisins, rich perfumed florals, caramel, banana, . Taste is ripe fruit and banana, bitter dry hop, sweet candy sugar, caramel, floral, raisins, dried fruit, slight pine, prune, fig. Mouthful is little oily and sticky. It’s all shading a little too sweet but the dried fruit and bitterness takes the edge off it.

kaserov (526) - Oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 24, 2017
Color rojizo, translúcido, con capa de espuma de un blanco algo sucio de tres dedos de grosor (textura jabonosa y buena retención). Carbonatación a tope (si bien en boca no está tan presente, visualmente es una de las cervezas más 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 alcohólico. Pese a tener 12%, el alcohol no está tan presente como esperaba. De todas formas, no veo nada reseñable que pueda justificar la elevada puntuación del resto de usuarios. Decente y rica, pero muy lejos de la calidad de ciertas cervezas belgas.
