While the aroma’s where good, the taste was some less. Seems Leffe just really wanted to have a Christmas-beer, maybe they had better wait some more before selling it.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a a dark red color with a small off white head that desapeared quickly. Aroma of malts and some sweet red fruit sirup and some spices. Flavors is a bit metal, with roasted malts, a hint of red fruits, some caramel and spices. Good carbonation, with a sweet bitterness. A little to sweet and the over taste of sirup is clear. Its drinkable but nothing great.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
A Mes rate. Bottle at mums on Boxing Day.
Ruby Amber colour with a thin film topping. Burnt plastic and sugar aroma with lots of dull yeast. Tastes like the regular leffe blonde with a touch of caramel malt and some more burnt sugar. Awful medicinal finish.

Dark amber/red with nice high beige head. Beautifull.
Very yeasty nose. Definately a Leffe. More spicey than the regular blonde and brune, bur the same yeast based beer.
Quite high in carbonation. Very creamy.
Overall very nice, and I could easily drink more of this for X-mas:-)

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.
