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.

PapaCanard (55) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 26, 2015
Magnifique bouteille de 0.75 litre et magnifique bière brun-rouge avec p eu de mousse. Puissant arôme de clou de girofle qui peut déranger les palais non avertis. Reste de caramel après déglutition. Une bombe de Noël.

Quite a nice beer. Nothing to special or to christmassy to it, a light caramel taste, perfect for a beginning of a dinner.

Draft at Grapevine, Brussels. Color is nice. Smels and tastes like soap. A bit too much bubbles also.

Bierridder_S (618) - BELGIUM - DEC 22, 2015
17/12/2015 - free sample from perfect draft @ Wijnkelder, Berchem. Brown with nice light tanned head. Nose is dark malts, caramel, sweetness. Taste, dark matls, caramel. Way too cold to get other tastes from it but not bad at all. Even maybe the best Inbev thing I ever had

ForlornHope (369) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2015
Small bottles at home. Pours red-brown in colour with a rocky head. Usual Leffe aroma of malt and yeast. Sweet to start, with almost no bitterness to balance. Spicy taste with a sticky sweetness. Medium body. Competently assembled but not very exciting.

Aromas of yeast and sour malt. Pours a dark brown mohogany with a big rocky fast dissipating tan head. Big round Belgian tastes with spicy hints of nutmeg and caramel. Long nice finish. Good light carbonated mouthfeel. Happy holiday drink.
