COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With its amber color, fruity and spicy bouquet, and its creamy foam, Leffe Biere de Noel is a beer full of character. Very expected during the holiday season, it continues the tradition of master brewers who kept their best barley and hops to brew once a year. Leffe Biere de Noel makes your aperitif a moment of intense flavor.

holdan (260) - USA - NOV 29, 2011
Ruby with nice foamy head. Aroma weak on the nose, but can trace some sweet fruit, malt. Taste sweet fruit, candymalt, some bitter hops, and yet quit neutral, almost watery. Medium body, smooth. Easy and drinkable but could use some more character/alcohol.

Brownish red beer, cream head. Rather sweet malts aroma, caramel, slightly roasted with a light acidic tone. Flavour malty, rather sweet, some slight roasted malts bitterness. Finish short but rather sweet. OK, not brilliant.

Grima (2189) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - JUL 3, 2011
Nut-brown beer pours with minimal bright red cast. There is a lot long-lasting fine foam. The smell is malty, roasty and slightly acidic. Starts with lots of caramel malt, pleasantly sweet in the background. The finish is very cloying, slightly fermented fruit. Very good beer, but tastes much too much like the Leffe Brune.
