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.

yngwie (13106) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 11, 2010
Bottle. Itís a clear, copper-colored beer topped by a beige head. Dried fruits and some alcohol on the nose. Full-bodied and nicely carbonated. Sweet, caramel flavor with a balancing bitterness. Dreid fruits and dark sugars too. Bitter finish with roast malts and sweetness. Overall, a nice beer considering itís brewer, but itís too anonymous to be really good. Rating: 6-3-6-4-13-3.2. 100326

Bottle. A clear, dark amber to brown beer with a minimal beige head. Dried fruits, raisins and figs, with brown sugar and caramel. Some alcohol notes. Itís full-bodied and slightly warming, too sugary, but quite well-tasting. Slightly roasted, some spiced notes and also some caramel and a good dash of dried fruits. But too sweet. Sweet finish with dried fruits, alcohol notes and brown sugar. A nice beer indeed, but a bit on the sweet side. The aroma is definately the best of it. 100711

Ungstrup (29019) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 3, 2010
Bottled. A deep red beer with a lazing off-white head. The aroma has notes of nuts, malt, caramel, and some yeast lending it a bit of fruit. The flavor is very sweet with notes of caramel, malt, nuts, bread, and a bit of metal, leading to a dry metallic and nutty finish. Thanks Papsoe for this beer.

kappldav123 (4700) - GERMANY - APR 14, 2010
The bottle looks really good, as well as the beer in the glass. Starts malty, modest spicy with notes of cinnamon. Finish much milder, only modest malty, a bit metallically. Finish should be more intense. So only average!

Bottle. Dark red with laced white head. Nose and flavour of dried fruit, caramel and alcohol. A tinny finish that lingers. Itís rough all round. I didnít expect much from this one.
