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.

MrHangover (3903) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 19, 2011
Bottle. Clear brown colour, mediumn sized head. Could be because I drank it too cold. After warming I detected some green apples and malts. Good carbonation going on on the tongue, making it quite pleasant all the time. Flavour has some sourness in it, not much, but is overall mostly sweet. Not to sweet, bit like lemon ice cream. Kinda strange in winter huh.. I expected a bit more warmer feeling, but it hadn’t. Too bad.

Thin aroma, a bit of grass. Taste is delicate, maybe not completely convincing, but hints of cherry and apple are present; the long finish is malty.
