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.

Embrouille (2803) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 12, 2009
Bottled 33cl. Courtesy of kappldav123. Appearance: It pours a beautiful clear ruby beer with a nicely lasting creamy beige head. Nice lacework. Aroma: Inviting, smooth, subtle and very christmassy. Yeast accentuated, sweet with hints of cherry, molasses, candy sugar, fennel, nutmeg, quite a lot of fudge, cinnamon, tobacco, stuffy sitting room, coconut and coriander. Pleasant. Flavor and palate: Low carbonation. Sweet and very smooth. Medium bodied. Very drinkable. Extremely low bitterness. Yeast driven. Rather interesting. Caramel, cinnamon, walnuts, tobacco, nutmeg and fennel showing up. Sweet yeasty finish with which is reminiscent of marmite and arabic gum. Overall impression: Better than I expected. Thanks kappldav123!

Maria (9963) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAY 20, 2009
It is dark amber with a huge, creamy head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, candy sugar, yeast and light spice and dark fruits. The flavour has sweetness and the same notes as the aroma, but also evident alcohol and the finish is rather spicy.

heavy (2075) - Split, CROATIA - FEB 16, 2009
14/02 0.33 l bottle my neighbor Zrinka shared, thanks a lot! 6,6% ABV. It poured darker reddish brown body with small head. Nice yeasty aroma, banana and bubblegum dominated, similar as their famous blond, with some hints of caramel besides. Good flavor, but slight letdown after its nose, it was quite dry with some caramel and spices. Also, pretty thin bodied. Quite long finish which was bittersweet and slightly woody. Definitely misses some character, and for a Christmas beer some strength, but its quite fine one.

Red-brown colour, off-white head. Aroma has dark fruits and spices. Flavour is spicy, malty and fruity. Not very impressive.
