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.

mutz (834) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 9, 2011
Roodbruin van kleur met een flinke kraag die na het inschenken nog een tijdje blijft hangen. Ziet er goed uit en smaakt ook OK. Fris en doordrinkbaar, lichtzoet en een beetje bruin broodachtig, niet veel body maar toch niet waterig. Lekker om er een paar achterover te gooien bij de chips ofzo.
