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 from Cocktails, Littleborough. Chestnut-red with a frothy head. Includes winter fruity pale malts in both aroma and taste with the former sightly more stated in this respect.

Gangstergafje (369) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - FEB 15, 2015
Greet beer. Dark amber colored. Nice layer of foam which covers the beer til the end. The beer is sweet, like a christmas ale is supposed to. Nice hints of red fronts and spices. I seriously recommend this beautiful beer.

bartlebier (2820) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - FEB 12, 2015
Nespressoish minidraught@Geers 02/2015 - a very late Feb Xmas, thirsty after biking. Rubybrown pour. Nose of gentle liquid caramel, candied cherry, cinnamon. Drinks quite easily and none too syrupy, wihout a real yeast signature almost like lemonade, leaving nice dulcet, filtered but palatecoating traces of fruitcake, honey, cherries, spiced caramel without ever really becoming cloying. Nice little spiced hop presence there as well. Not half bad actually, for kLeffe. Although I do wonder if Xmas beers are supposed to be this good thirstquenchers.

Erzengel (6224) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - FEB 8, 2015
*Old rating, best before 16/03/10. Malzig-süßliches Bier. Hauch von Alkohol, leichte Röstaromen, verbranntes Karamell. Im Nachgeschmack abgestimmt herb-malzig mit karamelliger Süße. Sehr süffig, nicht zu tief, nett.

Bière sucrée,un peu trop, avec de grandes notes de caramel, de raisin. Agréable et douce en hiver. Mais trop sucrée pour une autre saison.

rami_pl (786) - Warszawa, POLAND - JAN 24, 2015
Ladne piwo - piekna barwa brazowo-miedziana ze szkarlatnymi przeblyskami, bujna piana (niestety redukuje sie do obraczki w kilka minut), brudzi szklo... Aromat dublowo-swiateczny - rodzynki, banany, puietnikowo, karmelowo, przyprawowo. jakies inne kwaskowate owoce, karmel (po lekkim ogrzaniu), slod... bardzo fajnie zlozony. Smak podobnie - karmelowa slodkosc, slodowosc, owocowa kwaskowatosc, rodzynki, piernikowo-przyprawowe klimaty. Dosc wytrawne, wysokie wysycenie (szczypie w jezyk), niska goryczka. Sumarycznie: troche jak leffe brune, tyle ze nieco a) rozwodnione (i to psuje odbior) b) dodane przyprawy. Wole brune, ale Noel tez przyjemne
