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.

(Bottled) Clear, deep red-amber with a small, tanned head. Fruity, vanilla-spicy aroma. Strongly fruity flavor with sweetish malt, cinnamon, orange peel, vanilla. Alcohol well hidden. Medium body with medium carbonation. A typical Leffe, but with quite pleasant, spicy fruitiness. Too clean to be truly interesting.

BeerViking (2305) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2008
Bottled: Sweet and malty, with a pleasing bitterness and fruity vinous undertones, but a little too heavy on the spices - cloves? nutmeg? Pleasant enough but nothing special.
