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.

Boutip (4701) - 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.

yngwie (13529) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 11, 2010
Bottle. It’s 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 it’s brewer, but it’s 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. It’s 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 (29226) - 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.
