Scaldis Noël is golden brown and slightly hazy with a frothy beige head. The bouquet is impressive, with smooth alcohol, honey, and cracked pepper notes that all vie for attention. The flavor sinks deep into the tongue with toffee and honey sweetness, followed by raisin and plum fruitiness. Hops come to the surface as peppery spice and assertive bitterness. Overall, with its array of flavor, from the sweet and fruity to spicy and bitter, this beer is very well balanced. Noël finishes sweet, the beer’s big body and alcohol warmth heightening the toffee flavors that stretch to the end.
