Notes/Commercial Description:
"Bush Prestige starts out as Bush Ambrée, which instead of being stored as traditionally in stainless steel vats is matured in oak barrels for a period of six months.

During bottling, a small quantity of sugar and yeast is added to the beer, which, placed in a hot room, causes refermentation in the bottle that gives it a natural cloudiness and a particularly high alcohol content of 13%."

I've been enchanted by the Prestige. Poured at a good temperature with a huge, cream-colored, foamy, billowy head that settle after a bit to a light cover and good lacing. Color is a clear medium amber with some bubble trails. Aroma is malt, yeast, candy sugar, caramel, spice, fruit, hint of oak. Flavor's like nose, but much more pronounced. Starts out sweet turning to bittersweet with tang to balance; oak comes out much more while teats becomes muted. It wouldn't be hard to rhapsodize about the intriguing minutiae of flavor nuances, but I'll leave that to you n yer beer chums. Body/carbonation are spot on. Finish is clean, rather short, and easy despite its power. They nailed it with this one.

4.8/5  rDev +17.6%
look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Pours golden to coppery, opaque. Foam build up fast, not a lot though. Decent lacing.
Smells of ripe fruit, peach, honey, flowers and raisin, and there's a also a light sourness.
From the first sip my mind goes straight to sherry/brandy. Big complex fruitiness, with lots of sour and sweet cherries, red forest berries, with green apple like acidity, mild citrus (tangerines, blood oranges), white grape and sweet yellow pear. The Bush brews are usually exaggerated in their sweetness, but i found this one surprisingly balanced.
The malts are grainy in the back, and with lots of caramel up front, but again, not exceedingly sweet. Nice hints of vanilla, honey and some floral notes. The hops are green and herbal in the finish, providing a mild bitterness, just enough.
But it's not the bitterness lingering in the aftertaste, but the booze. This is the only problem with this one, the booziness is a bit too much, hard to be hidden with the given acidity and quite a fizzy carbonation. Still, the alcohol doesn't feel medical, but nice, warm and noble like in a good whisky, given the big barrely notes, with oak, dry wood and a light peat smokiness.
Even considering this one a sipper, the alcohol still seems a bit "not in its place", so i can't consider this one an imaculate 5. Still, beautiful.

This a "Ale aged in oak barrel".
Has a brilliant color, with tint of ruby amber but more of a gold color to the appearance.
H: two and half fingers, medium lasting. I think it does have a nice pillowey head for little bit.
A: smell the oak cask with hint of nice earthy tones.
F: richness in mouth fell, with a nice overtone balance.

Pours a burnished copper colour, head of small bubbles but retaining well. Yeah, good.

Smells quite bretty and funky. Fair bready yeast character as well with notes of lime, pineapple and currants. Earthy at times as well, with a good amount of tartness. Nice.

Wow, taste is more like a perry. Seriously, pear, apple, a touch of vanilla and raspberry and a big gulp of cinnamon. Funky barnyard sort of rounds it out and adds a richness to the pleasant mélange of sweet/sour/spicy. Fascinating, and delicious palate.

Bit boozey hot, unfortunately, and quite noticeably. A shame. Decent body though.

Really enjoying this, in spite of the obvious heat. So much nice sweet, spicy and sour in great balance that I don't care that much.

Vintage 2011 - 50% off made this $25 bones.

Golden apricot with plenty of floaties that result in an obviously uber-bubbly beer. Solid sheet of light cream foam. Booze, apple, pear, light loose malt, co2, a little touch of tart smell. Sweet malts, some booze, vanilla, metal, some light pear (asian), some bitterness, some yeast. Medium on thin with hi carb and a wet and warm finish. I'm disappointed to say the least based on the pride/price of this one. It's got no real apparent flaws, but nothing to really set it apart.

"2010" 750 ml bottle poured into a NB snifter.

A - Pours a light, soft yellow. 1/2-finger head of fluffy, tight, slightly off-white foam quickly falls to fine lace across the surface. Beer is a sunset apricot-orange that's cloudy and mostly opaque. There's a thick column of bubbles rising from middle of the bottom of the glass.

S - Very rich, light caramel and malts. Notes of quite ripe tree fruits like pear, but not sugary sweet. Hints of vanilla and brown sugar. As it warms, a muted tangerine-lemon whiskey appears with just a touch of smooth woodiness. Overall, nose is pretty muted.

T - An incredibly complex mix of caramelized malts, figs, apricots, and caramel-covered Granny Smith apples. Undercurrent of liquor throughout. High ABV is well-hidden, but present in the same way it is in a rich, well-structured wine. Almost becomes a dark fruit brandy as the flavors ride the oaked malts. The thoroughness of the blend almost defies deconstructing it into constituent parts.

M - Fizzy and rather crisp. Exceptionally well-integrated structure. Medium body, on the lighter side, but definitely not thin. Moderate finish that leaves a warm spot in the tummy and non-cloying echoes on the back of the tongue.

O - After reading a review that asked whether a single bottle of beer could really be worth $40, and concluding that it could, I decided this would be the New Year's Eve beverage rather than the traditional champagne. What struck me most about this bottle was how complex the marriage of its flavors are, and how fruit-forward they are without being at all sugary sweet. I'm not sure taking tasting notes on the side of other activities really does this beer justice; it seems to almost demand full, slowly paced concentration to reveal every possible nuance it has to offer. I can't say this is a beer I'll make a point of having again, as its style isn't one I immediately gravitate toward, but without a doubt, this bottle was well-worth experiencing simply because of its exceptional quality and complexity. It would make quite a gift for anyone who truly appreciates an epicurean experience.

2008 vintage. I've been storing this one for four years and decides Xmas Eve was as good a time as any to finally open it.

Pours a very cloudy, dark golden amber color with dark orange edges and a two finger white foam head that quickly settles into a lasting ring. Streaks of soapy lacing left behind.

Vinous aroma with a strong barrel presence that's nicely integrated into the elements of the base beer. Strong toasted oak character along with vanilla, rye whiskey and calvados brandy notes. Pretty complex and similar to an oak aged barley wine with hints of leathery malt, toffee, caramel and dark fruits. Some spicy rye and apple lingering underneath the barrel notes as well as hints of plum, raisin and fig. Very nice!

Medium bodied with surprising amount of carbonation considering it's age and high ABV. As in the aroma, it feels more like a barrel aged old ale/barley wine. Complex barrel character with combination of virgin oak, whiskey and brandy barrel flavors. Toasted and slightly toothpick-y with dry oak, spicy rye whisky, and apple and brandy notes. Zesty spice compliments the spicy rye notes before being countered by sweet and earthy malts, bready yeast and dark fruit sweetness. Strong barrel presence but it doesn't overpower the base with hints of toffee, caramel apple, fig, plum, currants and dark cherries. There's a decent amount of alcohol sweetness and some warmth in the finish but the 13% ABV is pretty well masked. Complex and flavorful but definitely a sipper.

Bottle purchased for me by @epiclurk. Shared with Rich & Sam. You know who they are.

Pours a deep amber, turning to garnet, with a fluffy, but slightly bubbly and insubstantial head of white. No lacing. Body looks heavy enough, but also slightly oily and dangerous. It looks somewhat still and menacing.

Nose is spicy and sharp, but with a solid backing of stretched malt and toffee. There are definite wafts of booze coming through, with a heady intensity that already makes you a little woozy. Peppery, yet sweet. It's odd.

Taste is rich and deep, with a most pronounced lightness in feel and body that I was afraid was going to let the booze take over—fortunately, it doesn't, it sits in the wings with the suggestion of intensity. Light honey characters come through balanced with a little pepper and a mild astringency, which is tempered and restrained. Mild carbonic character on the finish, and the suggestion of apricots. It's not bad.

Feel is certainly much, much lighter than I thought it might have been. It could survive a serious increase.

Overall, it's pretty well-balanced, without getting too hot or intense, despite its strength. It's a complicated beer, no doubt, but it manages to stay on the side of respectability.

Bottle from Beer Deluxe.

A - Poured cloudy dark orange with specs of yeast floating. One finger of white head was gone fast. Left no retention or lace.

S - Orange, candy, a little tart, white grape.

T - Grapes, vinous, orange candy, yeast. Much more strong than the aroma. Flavour accentuates better elements of the aroma. Sweet, not cloying.

M - Strong carbonation, medium body, sweet finish.

O/D - A nice, sweet, tasty, complex Belgian strong. Enjoyed it, but I wouldn't rank it as high as others.

Pours a hazy orange-ish color with a an off white head. In the aroma, quite fruity, especially apricots. In the taste, dry to sweet apricots and a small alcohol presence all the way through. A small bite and a medium bodied mouthfeel, with a dry apricot and note of alcohol in the aftertaste. WOW! Very wine-ish, nice big fruit and that deceiving small alcohol.

A; poured a cloudy amber color with good carbonation leaving a nice white cap

S: Complex and delicous. Caramel, toffee, pears, apricots, green apples, raisins, vanilla, oak and plenty of booze

T: Starts out with fruit flavors of pear and apricot, that are quickly joined by the toffee and vanilla elements with alcohol forward; after the swallow, the finish is long and flavorful

M: Medium bodied with considerable foaming that goes on within the mouth. I thought the 13% was well disguised

O: Amazing brew

750ml brown bottle shared with Patrick, Boul, Julien and Pierre-Luc. Best before 2015. Nice copper-amber beer without foam. Smell: vinous and oaky nose. The fruity esters are appealing. Sweet taste of oak. The afetertaste is long and sweet. This beer is suprisingly drinkable for its 13 degrees.

I got this beer just by chance. I didn't know what it was or anything about it. I took it to my friends house last night and opened in a celebration of the Bruins Stanley Cup win. My friend being the Bruins fan out of the two of us was very appreciative. Popped the cork and gave it a pour. The beer came out as a cloudy reddish orange color. The head and lacing were pretty good for a beer with this high of an ABV. The smell of the beer is heavily scented with oak, the barrel aging is definitely there. The taste brings the oak tartness onto the tongue also. There is some subtle cherry flavors in there and Belgian yeast also. The mouthfeel of the beer was pretty smooth not much of an alcohol burn at all. Overall this beer was very pricey, it was good but not worth the amount I paid. Thats the luck of the draw though.

wow, i cant believe its time to crack this $45 bottle that isnt bourbon county rare. drank to celebrate a promotion at work. drank from my duvel tulip. 2010 vintage.

A- the pour seems a bit dark from a belgian pale ale. a lightly hazy dark amber colored body with a thick light khaki colored head on top. the head lasts for a very long time and leaves behind a solid wall of lacing. very nice for something this big.

S- the first thing i notice about the smell is the lack of alcohol. very mild smelling for something this big and bad. after that i pick up some vinous notes and light fruit. raisins, cherries, plums, grapes and apples. none of them seem too dominant. light belgian yeast. i cant find much if any evidence of oak barrels.

T- the alcohol i couldnt smell comes to the front of the taste. its still nothing too intense for a slow sipper like this. after that i get some of the fruits i could smell. apple, cherry, white grape, raisins, and plums. cherry seems the strongest, followed by grapes. a little bit of the oaken barrel sneaks through. nice and vinous. earthy hops at the end.

M- the body is a solid medium and very sticky. palate coating with a long lasting aftertaste. moderate warming from the alcohol which is acceptable for something this big.

O- overall, i dont think this beer was worth the price. glad to have tried it, but i wont be getting it again. id love to have a glass on tap if i can find one.

The grand taste is sour-ish and sweet. Honey. Strong notes of raisins. Nuts. Balanced and exclusive.

Poured from a funny looking 750ml bottle into my tasting snifter. $50 a bottle! Yikes...thanks to my brother-in-law Damon for bringing this to the table! Pours a hazy, apricot looking amber color. TONS of floaties in this beer! A very nice size creamy, yet fizzy white head forms...decent retention...but dissipates to a creamy rim. Doesn't leave much of a lacing...what's left is quick sliding. Appearance resembles a carbonated apple cider.

Aroma is wonderful! Tons of ripe and sweet fruits. Apple, banana, pear, malts, slight booze(surprisingly-expected to be a bit boozier in the nose).

Flavor is kind of a drop off from the flavor. Definitely a good taste, but nowhere as fruit forward as the nose. From what's noticable, some pear, apple, malts, wheat, yeast... I'd have to say, this is a very decent beer...but not a $50 bottle to say the least. I'd drink it again, but not at this price. Mouthfeel is medium, carbonation is medium to high. Booze isn't strong, again...surprisingly. Glad I got the chance to try it!

The Scaldis Prestigede Nuits is Scaldis Noel beer aged for 6 months in burgundy barrels from the St. George Vineyard. It was a pretty fantastic beer, although I didn't think it was worth $50 a bottle, or $45, with the 10% off any beer that was offered to us at the tasting. I would buy it if it was in the mid twenties price range though, as there are in my opinion really great beers for around that price on the market. It tasted a bit wild, a hint of sourness (mmm Brett!) with port flavors that lingered on the tongue with a great balance of caramel- not too overwhelmingly sweet.

Purchased a $9 4oz pour at the Beer Engine's Wood Aged Beer Event.

Had to try this as the bottle is over $50 and I would never spend that on something that wasn't super ridiculous rare.

Clear copper beer, looks rather unassuming and not like a 13% killer.

Smell is subdued, sweet malt is all I'm getting.

Taste is OK. A nice sweetness, fruit, pear, apple, and a little kick of hops. Mild wood flavors, vanilla. But this has a detectable alcohol burn. Not so great - too hot. Phenolic alcohol.

Nice carb but m/f was insignificant.

Ok to drink. Glad I got the sample not the bottle. This is some overpriced beer.

Glad I finally got to try this ridiculously overpriced beer after seeing it on the Rose & Crown chalkboard for about a year, marked up to roughly the price of a small house. Consumed at a bottle share thanks to an unknown awesome person.

Pours a cloudy amber-brown color with a medium-sized yellowish head, and chunks. Sorry, but chunks just don't do it for me. This isn't a bowl of Chunky Monkey, it's a beer.

Aroma is fairly vinous and sweet, with notes of port and cognac, oak, vanilla, and Belgian yeast.

Flavor is very fruity and sweet. Red wine, port, cognac, sweet cherries, apples, raisins, oak, and vanilla. Yeast also has a noticeable presence. It is fairly complex, but not quite as awesome as all these flavors might make it sound.

Medium body with medium-high carbonation, fairly smooth from the -bal aging.

Overall though, not quite as good as the price would lead me to want it to be. If I were a magician, the "prestige" of my magic trick would be throwing this beer in the "bush." Just kidding, but it did underwhelm me a bit. Good thing I didn't pay for it myself.

Nose is quite vinegary and sour/acidic with sweet oak (vanilla) and soft malt backbone with some fruit (tropical) mixing well with the oak. Smells very good.

Pours dirty amber with lots of head. Looks good.

Sweet savory oak! Mmm! The vanilla oakiness pairs extremely well with the tropical fruit. Spicy pepper forms nice juxtaposition and balance. Malt backbone is soft and bready (fresh bread) and less cake-like than Bush Ambrée. Sweetness is akin to cake though. Alcohol is strong and almost blistering at times. Lots of fruit - mostly tropical with peach and apricot. Slight citric zest. Finishes with a mouthful of tropical fruit and oak. Tastes very good. Feels very good. Very good drinkability.

I love oak and this is lovely. It has a pretty tight balance and exceptional oak flavor and strength. The overall flavor profile of Ambréee apparently makes a nice choice for oaking because this is a definite homerun and worthy of the label 'Prestige'.

That's a big bottle. hazy, rusty, orange pour. Bottle fermentation has done its work. Creamy head, mostly tight bubbles with the occaisional big burp. Floaties.
Aroma of fruit skin. Apples, pear, some white grapes, a good dose of bread, too. A slight twinge towards the back. Spices?
Taste is more of darker fruit, but not all that dark. Red plum, raisin, some orange essence. Bready. Seems very light. Good carbonation. Easy drinking for the abv. Not my style though.
