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.

Douberd (2816) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JAN 8, 2015
(Leffe Bière de Noël) Bottle 330 ml at home, served into a tulip, ABV 6.6% Amber colour on the body, clear, with good activity in it. Good sized tan head, with very good retention, leaving medium lacing on the glass. Aroma has some dark fruits but well hidden under lots of caramel. Hints of spices, a bit faint though. The spices are more obvious on the taste, with caramel again, some toffee, red and light dark fruits. Not bad, only there are some metallic notes on the finish, nothing offensive to be honest. Medium thin body with the carbonation being on the high side. Okay beer, not one I’d choose to drink at home during the christmas holidays but I wouldn’t say no to it in a bar at the same period.

33cl flesje via Brewery Shop, Brugge Alcoholpercentage van 6,6% Uitgeschonken in origineel Leffe glas Uiterlijk: koperrood met kleine schuimkraag Aroma en smaak: caramel, donker fruit, zoet, licht kruidig Conclusie: lijkt een beetje op Radieuse alleen dan minder vol. Beetje tegenvaller na het lange zoeken. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bonkiedeaap (350) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 28, 2014
Bottle from Hoogvliet in Hardinxveld. The beer has a hazy dark amber color and a large cream colored head, with a lot of CO2 in the beer. In the aroma are clear tones noticable of dark fruits, a lot of spices (like cloves) and also the sweetness of caramel. The taste is full bodied, with the tones from the aroma, with a whiff of vanilla and a nice bitterness from the spices in the end. The finish is long, a little warming and nicely bitter.

gopherfan99 (699) - CROATIA - DEC 27, 2014
Bottle; pours clear amber with a tan head; aroma is spicy with yeast; taste is sweet yeast, dark fruit, caramel, and spice; spicy light bitter finish; this beer reminded me of their Brune but a little bit more spices but I was hoping for something a little more distinctive; still an okay beer
