It's not available in Texas, but every time I travel through New Mexico I pick up as many bottles as I can reasonably afford (last time it was $3.79 for 330ml). It's that good. The strongest beer in Belgium and perhaps the most complex. Hugely fruity and nutty, and surprisingly dry in the finish. Called "Bush" in Belgium, it's about as far as is possible from the Busch here in the States.

Scaldis (aka Bush Amber) is one of the most complex and incredibly strong beers in the world. Sit back and sip this one and appreciate it as one of life's finer things.

I Visited the Bush brewery in october. This newy revamped tasting room in french speaking belgium was a moment to be remembered for many years to come. This beer is a world classic.Extreme malty nose upfront. Sweet malty caramel flavor. Full bodied. Lasting head to the bottom.

I have to agree with Mophie. This is an exceptional beer. Fortunately I get to have this beer on tap quite often. I've had it both ways, bottle and tap, and, I have to say, once you have this beautiful beer on tap, there's no going back. This beer is so drinkable, and the mouthfeel ... exquisite, the way it invades your tastebuds! Definitely a beer to drink slowly and enjoy.

Whiskey-copper colored in the glass. White head of several bubble sizes, seems to linger a bit but ultimately disappears though the carbonation stays. Smells of sweet malt, slightly boozy.

Big starting flavor, fills the mouth with caramel and vanilla. That bourbon color might be influencing the flavor as well. Seamlessly, the sweet malt character rides along the carbonation to a spicy hop finish. Initially does not taste as alcoholic as it is, but eventually that catches up to produce a dryness not noticed in the beginning.

This is a full-bodied beer, and the mouthfeel is absolutely full, almost cloyingly. In a good way. This is a sipper, though. Enjoy it.

Enjoyed at Cafe Hollander in Wauwatosa, WI as part of their first Belgian Beer Dinner. This beer was poured into a small wine glass and served close to room temperature. It had a reddish-mahogany body with a little bit of foam around the sides of the glass. Aromas of dried cherries, cinnamon, and oak. Full bodied mouthfeel that coats your tongue in silky sweet malts with a pleasant alcohol warmth. This is the perfect substitute for an after-dinner port.

This is one superb beer I just found it today.

Pours very well. Leaves a small amount of head. Poured into tulip glass. Smells great.

It has a great smooth sweet taste thats not too heavy with a nice sweet aftertaste. Not too sweet and not too much alcohol taste considering 12% abv.

This has just hit the list of one of my favorite beers. I have nothing negative to say about this beer. I will buy again!

Scaldis
250ml bottle 8.48 fl oz. - 12%
Cloudy peach colored. Full pour into a tulip glass.
Wonderful sweet, perfumy aroma. Light colored fruit, pear, peach, butterscotch and alcohol.

Flavors are soft butter, toffee and sugar.
The alcohol really comes out when the air mixes with it. If you weren't paying attention this one will hit you, as it is very drinkable.
The Cherry-pit aftertaste proves the hop presence.
Terrific balance, winderful aroma and high drinkability. A Fantastic beer.
