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.

DeanF (1662) - Nunavut, CANADA - NOV 19, 2010
This is getting big promotion all across Paris on billboards, so this winter at least it should be widely available in France. Nice dark amber colour with a foamy head. Soft cherry aromas buried in a nut and wood mix that emerges from mostly malt ingredients. Taste is a lot of mahogany and oak with an alcoholic and watery finish. Another miss by Leffe, this is okay but could be much better.

MoritzF (8402) - Bochum, GERMANY - NOV 17, 2010
(bottle, 33cl) Clear, ruby amber colour with a big and tanned foamy head. Sweet and slightly toasted malty aroma with bready and subtle fruity notes, as well as a spicy touch. Moderately sweet and slightly bitter flavour, medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Malty taste with notes of caramel, bread, chestnuts and shy berry-fruity notes; sweet and slightly bitter nutty and slightly spicy finish. Not world-shaking but pretty drinkable. 15.XI.10

Boutip (4656) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 10, 2010
Bottle: Poured a clear medium burgundy color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of candi sugar and fruity ester is OK for style though I have smell better. Taste is also a nice enough mix between some candi sugar notes with some light Belgian malt with light notes of fruity ester. Body is too light for style with medium carbonation and no apparent alcohol. OK at best but I must admit to having tasted better Belgian Christmas beer in my life.
