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.

ABT_S54 (148) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2014
33cl bottle in a Delirium Noel glass. Pours a dark brown liquid with a red hue. The head is nice and generous and perfectly carbonated. This is clearly a Christmas version of the brune of which I am not a fan however, this is much improved with the addition of spices. The pine resin present in the brune is still here but is somewhat tamed by the extra spices although the flavour is actually quite welcome in a Christmas drink. Not the best but very enjoyable.

3 x 330 ml horizontal tasting Bire de Nol - 9 - Ruby Bire De Nol: pours clear amber. bland bland aroma with a bit of spice, not different from the blonde. Smells bad. Medoum body, low carbonation, small touch of spice. No taste. Really, no taste. 1/5 9: pours blond to yellow, thin fizzy head. Light honey & malt aromas (but had to smell my nose off). Sweet body all the way through the end. Light malty taste. Mh. 1.9/5 Ruby: pours light red with an amber hue. Aroma... f*** - groce: artificial cherry bubblegum. Sweet body but - pasteurised and filtered like hell - render it sweet/sour in a weirdly and groce way. Taste is rosewater. Bad rosewater. Aftertaste is sticky gum. 0.5/5
