Scaldis Noël is a strong golden ale barley wine made in Belgium. It’s tradition there for breweries to make a stronger, bolder beer for their loyal customers at Christmas time and this is Dubuisson’s version. Hop flowers are placed in the vats (dry hopped) where the beer rests for four to six weeks.
