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.

Plovmand (6349) - Helsinge, DENMARK - APR 21, 2009
Bottle. Clear reddish brown body with a medium light brown head. Sweet malty aroma with some yeasty and dark fruity notes. Notes of berries in flavour with lots of sweetness. A malty brew that is not very xmas like but drinkable.

heavy (2127) - 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 it’s quite fine one.

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

mike_77 (3028) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 26, 2009
Red-brown colour with large foamy head. Aroma has a hint of smoke and a little fruity sweetness. Flavour has some elements of sugary red-fruits. Quite light and easy to drink but lacking depth of flavour for a beer in this style.

Bottle shared by Robert at the SSSSLT. Pour was amber-ruby colored, small head with weak retention. The aroma was candy sweet darker fruits, some bubblegum type elements maybe too. The flavor followed the aroma, just a nastily sweet beer, although not syrupy thick or anything. Might as well spike a drink box if you want something like this. Mouthfeel was low on carbonation, a little bit of that stickiness. Thanks again Robert, a great SSSSLT! I think we’re back to the SSSLT nomenclature after this one!

Straling (354) - Hoensbroek, NETHERLANDS - JAN 3, 2009
Bottle 33cl. Pours a clear ruby colour with a small size head with little carbonation. Smell is very fruity and sweet, can smell grapes and spices, rather pleasant. Taste on the other hand a bit dissappointing, very plain flavour, the smell can be detected slightly but not enough to make it stand out. Nice beer but not really anything special.

UPDATED: JAN 2, 2009 We had this @ some dank bar on tap. Big ass 500 cl goblets...sipped on this shit like Henry the 8’th . Aromas of plum ,dusty yeast and some chocolate. A full bodied taste . Quite sweet and malty but too heafty and a bit hollow .. You wonder where this beers guts are .Dark fruits and toasty flavours too . Dark chocolate in there. Just seemed like the usual Leffe Brune -only displayed as a Christmas beer. Or am I just cynical ?
