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.

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 (456) - 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 (7118) - 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.

jesperhammer (3028) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 19, 2009
19-DEC-2009, bottle @home. Dark amber/red with nice high beige head. Beautifull. Very yeasty nose. Definately a Leffe. More spicey than the regular blonde and brune, bur the same yeast based beer. Quite high in carbonation. Very creamy. Overall very nice, and I could easily drink more of this for X-mas:-)

Botella. "Bière de Noël Kerstbier". Clear nice dark brown colour with a medium beige fairly well lasting head. Pours clear and dark golden brown with a small tan head. Deep malty bit spiced aroma. Good mouthfeel. The flavour has a soft sweetness with a deep pleasant maltiness, some spice and soft bitterness.
