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.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown! / Waikato, NEW ZEALAND - APR 8, 2010
Bottle. Dark red with laced white head. Nose and flavour of dried fruit, caramel and alcohol. A tinny finish that lingers. It’s rough all round. I didn’t expect much from this one.

JanEric (990) - Meppel, NETHERLANDS - MAR 28, 2010
Redbrown to brown coloured, dense, off white head. Fruity aroma, also somewhat fruity taste Furthermore it’s a bit watery. Fizzling, with a medium finish. Not that special.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2010
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of fonefan. Pours a clear deep amber with a neat off-white head leaving a neat lacework. The yeasty aroma has Leffe writen all over it. Medium body, sweet dried fruit and a little fruit, but this is entirely a yeast job. No real evident spices and a rather subdued bitterness. No yeast sediment in Leffe’s anymore? Damm, it must’ve been too long since I last had one. 080210

Russo (1685) - Campinas, BRAZIL - JAN 31, 2010
bought in Brugge and drank back in home. Very dark ruby color with a tan head that dismish quickly. Aroma is barley malt with red fruit notes, flavor is quite bitter and spicy with a sweet finish not too long. Good drinkability.

Abio (1569) - Waasland, BELGIUM - JAN 31, 2010
While the aroma’s where good, the taste was some less. Seems Leffe just really wanted to have a Christmas-beer, maybe they had better wait some more before selling it.

eManu (448) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 11, 2010
Pours a a dark red color with a small off white head that desapeared quickly. Aroma of malts and some sweet red fruit sirup and some spices. Flavors is a bit metal, with roasted malts, a hint of red fruits, some caramel and spices. Good carbonation, with a sweet bitterness. A little to sweet and the over taste of sirup is clear. Its drinkable but nothing great.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2009
A Mes rate. Bottle at mums on Boxing Day.
Ruby Amber colour with a thin film topping. Burnt plastic and sugar aroma with lots of dull yeast. Tastes like the regular leffe blonde with a touch of caramel malt and some more burnt sugar. Awful medicinal finish.
