COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like the Brasserie Dubuissons 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 Nol, ripened for 7 months on wine casks from Burgundy (Nuits-St.-Georges).

bu11zeye (12885) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - APR 1, 2009
(750ml bottle) Pours a murky amber body with a small white head. Aroma of barnyard, leather, vinegar, and florals. Flavor of yeast, fruit, lacto, and raisins with the alcohol nice hidden for Dubuisson beer.

DSG (12532) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 24, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2010 Re-rate 10/20/09: Bottle sample at a tasting. Thanks Shachar. Hazy reddish-amber color. Sweet fruity aroma with spices, lots of oak, caramel, some oaky acidity, candi sugar and vinous notes. Sweetish flavor with fruits, light woody sourness, cookie hints, some spiciness and some sugar. Medium to full-bodied with lively carbonation. A good one. 8/3/7/4/15=3.7

Bov (12273) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 24, 2008
courtesy of Pascal Sauser - cloudy brown colour, little beige foam; very straight notes of wood; vinous and with a touch of vinegar; some astringence, sweet and full-bodied; acidic and quite aggressive; sweetish woody and malty caramleish aftertaste - deeply lacking of subtlety and without complicity between the beer and the cask; definitely needs some ageing

thewolf (12270) - Kolding, DENMARK - FEB 18, 2009
Bottle, bought @ lbutikken, Cph.
Enjoyed to the Aab - Deportivo match.
Pours almost completely red with a slight haze to it. Head is small, rather fizzy with low duration. Tarty aroma with grapes, wood, brett, prunes, vanilla, blackberries. Medium carbonation, superb creamy and oily mouthfeel. Flavour is vinious, no doubt about that, but it seems incredibly balanced. Sweet caramel malts with prunes, plums and raisins mix wonderfully well with grapes and light red whine notes. Some brett-like tartness and dryness as well. Truly incredibly balanced.

hopdog (11888) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 24, 2009
750ml, expensive as_, bottle. Poured a medium to deeper and cloudy amber color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of wood, grapes, cherries, oak, vinous, and slightly funky. My 6.5 year old wanted to smell it and without prompting told me it smelled like grapes. Tastes of cherries, oaky/woodiness, vanilla, caramel, and some fruitiness. Alcohol content well hidden with a nice smooth and easy to drink body.

Rune (11636) - Troms, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2011
750ml bottle shared with the Oslo guys at Bier Central. Dark amber body topped by a filmy layer. Rich aroma with tart fruits, raisin and dusty hops. Delicious taste of dried fruits, apples and spiced malts on an oaky backbone. Very dry ending. Solid, but integrated, alcohol warmth. A pleasure to drink a beer like this (Antwerpen, 29.04.2011).

Sammy (11487) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 26, 2010
Finished a bomber of this fine unique beverage, in the very glass it was designed for. Thanks for sendng both BelgBeerGeek. Pours a blackish cognac coloured body with an initially notion only of a head. The aroma is rich wine (it was aged in such for 6 months), and the taste is secondary to this Belgian ale, with some chocolate. Special though not extraordinary special.Above average mouthfeel.
