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.

bottle@home: got the last bottle at the store, red fruit, brown sugar, minor spices, some liquorice, bit like a fruiter & simpler Leffe Brune, too thin/light for Christmas beer, not really impressive, mostly a marketing

Thanks to Morko for sharing this! Clear amber-brown-red body. Sweet nicely fruity nose, malty. Pleasant, but I can’t think of better descriptors. Dry sweet malty taste, slightly bitter, typical Leffe spicy notes. Drinkable stuff, even if it smells better than it tastes.

I guess I expected too much from a Leffe Christmas beer. It didn’t quite deliver.

Donc Leffe se met à l’esprit festif de Noël? On retrouve là une bière dans le grand style InBev. Personnellement, je ne trouve à cette bière rien de festif. Couleur rubis/ambre clair, mousse beige. Arôme est fruité, malt et caramel, sucre brun, faible et rien de spécial, ressent un peu les additives sucré. En bouche, même expérience ratée que pour leur Leffe cerise, une bière qui se veut de tradition et en fait fini sans grande inspiration à vouloir couvrir tout le marché brassicole. Notes de fruits noirs, prunes et cerise, cassis présentant une fine couche acidulée avec en retrait un côté caramélisé. Amateur de vraies bières de Noël et de saison hivernale, cette bière n’est pas pour vous.

Deep red colour with a thin head, the aroma is spicy and very fruity, fruity Christmas taste.

Hansen (7351) - Assentoft, DENMARK - FEB 13, 2011
Dark brown and clear. Has an off-white head, mostly lasting. Aroma is nutty, spicy, faint lactic acid, moderate yeasty. Flavor is moderate sweet and finish moderate bitter. Creamy texture.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 10, 2011
Dark coppery colored with little yellow head. Sweet and caramelly, slightly grainy tropical fruity house aroma, some spices here too. Medium bodied. Flavor is sweet as well with thin roastiness, some grain and caramel also come up. Definite Leffe.

Bottle. Low fluffy white lasting head. Clear dark brown body. Caramel malt aroma and flavor with a fair amount of hops bitterness. Low carbonation. Long aftertaste.
