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.

2010 version Transfering data from personal beer file. I drank this beer a long time ago. I’ll update this rating if I have the chance to drink it again.

suurjuust (2854) - ESTONIA - FEB 14, 2012
Dark amber, big soapy head that quickly dissipates. Nose is black pudding and malt. Taste is sweet malt, caramel, some weak fruit and spice. Some warm alcohol and more sweetness in the finish. Thin to medium body, prickly carbonation. Decent.

Defreni (2997) - Husum, DENMARK - FEB 12, 2012
Flaske: Brun klar øl med et stort skumhoved. Duft af gær og en masse julekrydderi. Fin øl med en god smag af julen og en god humle til at samle balancen. Måske lidt lav karakter for makro og placebo.

dutchbeerpages (2265) - Wilnis, NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2012
Butterscotch, Werthers original in aroma and taste. Ruby red. Some spices in taste as well. You can taste that this beer is well-made, but it doesn’t excite me that much honestly. On tap at Belgian Beer Cafe Belvedere in Delft.

Bohm (6) - FRANCE - JAN 22, 2012 does not count
Une bonne brune, mais surtout une bière de Noël qui a tout pour plaire : d’une part des malts caramélisés et des touches épicées chaleureuses, de l’autre des houblons peu amers mais aux arômes affirmés, le tout s’équilibrant parfaitement sous une mousse crémeuse et un bouquet automnal.

Borresteijn (6378) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 19, 2012
33cl Bottle from AH. Clear brown colour, off white head. Aroma of dark fruits, amber malts, plums, some caramel. Flavour is medium sweet, fruity, dark fruits, light malty, toasted malts, caramel, bittersweet malty finish, slightly dry. Light to medium bodied. Not half bad.

TBone (16159) - Pori, FINLAND - JAN 14, 2012
Bottled 330ml (BZ, BB 09/2012)
Deep ruby color, good off-white, cloudy head, lace. Aroma is woody, grassy, a bit papery and with notes of alcohol. Medium-bodied. Malty, semi-sweet with berryish notes, hops, grass and some nuttyness too. Typical Leffe: "ok" but not very exciting Belgian Xmas brew.

Shaney (2423) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - JAN 13, 2012
#1235 Kastanienfarbenes Weihnachtsbier; feinporiger Schaum; leicht rauchiges Aroma mit Spuren von Kardamom und Zimt. Im Antrunk nicht so voll wie erwartet, aber gut. Geschmacklich nach malzigem Lebkuchen, vielleicht eine Spur zu süß geraten; der Abgang könnte daher eine Nuance herber ausfallen. Lecker!
