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.

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.

TheDog (528) - Aarhus, DENMARK - NOV 21, 2009
Bottle. Golden brown reddish colour with beige head. Aroma and taste of caramel, bread and citrus. Not too sugary sweet as some xmas brews and this deing a very nice and balanced Leffe. Not a long finished but I want one more. Its nice.

Bloekie (210) - BELGIUM - NOV 20, 2009
Amber brown clear body. Soap-reminding foam which decays very very quickly and is very unappealing. Taste is bitterness and leathery, not good at all. In the aftertaste there is a hint of sour cherries which makes up for a bit of the awfulness. Overall not a good beer.

Brandman (2098) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 8, 2009
330 ml bottle. Clear red/brown body with tanned head. Aroma has cherries, spices, cardamom, some alcohol, and surprinsingly some sourness. Flavour is metallic somehow. First taste is cherry and some sourness, taste goes away very fast. Some maltiness in taste and also a strong spice, just can’t point out what. Thin mouthfeel.

mcdav2154 (449) - GERMANY - OCT 17, 2009
this is actually what I expect in a christmas beer. a darker color that could be called amber. sweet caramel with a slight bitter background. Medium to big sized maltiness. fun beer to try since I’ve never seen this one around bitburg, germany.

Bottled 330ml. -Straight from the bottle somewhere in Brussels. Light notes of spices in the nose. Moderate roasted malty, candy sugar and spices with notes of cinammon and dark fruits. A bit too sweet but overall good Noël.

marcus (6585) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 22, 2009
This dark brown beer poured with a generous fluffy beige head and a toffee aroma this is pretty good for a Leffe. There is a nice roasted malt flavor with some bitterness at the finish.
