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.

gEUS (1001) - Linden, BELGIUM - JAN 10, 2014
3 x 330 ml horizontal tasting Bière de Noël - 9° - Ruby Bière De Noël: 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. Mèh. 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

freretoc (581) - Besançon, FRANCE - JAN 4, 2014
Bu en bouteille de 25cl, une bière très brune sans bulle et sans mousse. Une bière très peu épicée sans vraiment d’intérêt vite bu car trop grillée en fin de bouche

Bosbouw (1134) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - JAN 3, 2014
Heldere roodbruine donkere kleur met een degelijke kraag. Ruikt zoetig, mout, gebrand en caramel. Smaakt lekker zoetig. Beetje caramel, stroop, iets bitter in de afdronk. Prima bier.

Mothroy (73) - - JAN 3, 2014
Bottle at home. Variant of Leffe Brune but with a little more burnt caramel and a touch more bitterness. Lower in alcohol than most Christmas offerings but nevertheless an interesting, tasty beer.

Beertobealive (209) - Stavanger, NORWAY - DEC 25, 2013
Thick foamy white head. No raising aroma. Amber transparent body. Taste is dominant malt with longing light bitter palate. Lacks taste and structure thickness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
