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.

alexcandy (63) - Whitstable, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2011
660ml bottle from Auchan supermarket Aroma - not that exciting Appearance-Brown/amber, clear, creamy head taste- Very Leffe, caramel. burnt wood, spice Overall - Its been a few years since I tasted any Leffe beer and I have to say that I loved this. Its the sort of beer that makes me wonder why people say they don’t like beer. So different from a beer that I would drink on a regular basis.

prawlie (1267) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2011
33 cL bottle from Beers of Europe. Looks the part when poured into a Leffe glass, dark brown with a good head but not too much of a gusher. Typical Leffe aroma, nice and mild, though not highly distinctive. Tastes like a brown coloured Leffe Blond, and is somewhat disappointing. Smooth slightly bitter beer. Not as good as Leffe Bruin, and a bit of style over substance.
