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.

Ungstrup (29850) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 3, 2010
Bottled. A deep red beer with a lazing off-white head. The aroma has notes of nuts, malt, caramel, and some yeast lending it a bit of fruit. The flavor is very sweet with notes of caramel, malt, nuts, bread, and a bit of metal, leading to a dry metallic and nutty finish. Thanks Papsoe for this beer.

kappldav123 (5163) - GERMANY - APR 14, 2010
The bottle looks really good, as well as the beer in the glass. Starts malty, modest spicy with notes of cinnamon. Finish much milder, only modest malty, a bit metallically. Finish should be more intense. So only average!

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 (1027) - 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 (25083) - 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
