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 (59) - 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 (1234) - 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.

Countbeer (5034) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - JAN 4, 2011
Bottle: Big frotty creamy head on top of a deep dark orange red to brown beer. Smell malts, fruit, spices, yeast, caramel and grains. Taste a sweet and spicy mix of sweet fruit and pepper turns to a very soft well balanced beer, malts, caramel, spices, light fruity and a hint of yeast and alcohol. Mid body, low carbo and soft light tingling mouthfeel.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a brown color with a white head. The aroma is toffee, apples and cinnamon. Somewhat surprisingly, the beer smells a lot like fresh-baked apple pie. The flavor is more of the same. I get a lot of caramel and toffee malts, as well as some dark fruit, apples, cinnamon and sugar. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very nice holiday beer. Better than expected.

mjs (5043) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 31, 2010
(Draught at Brussels Airport) The beer poured dark brown and clear. Its head was medium sized and white with hint of brown. Aroma had caramell and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, caramell, sugary sweetness, hops and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet. Very clean and dull beer with too much sweetness.
