Deep, off white head, brown colour, perfumey aroma, sweet with a little spice. I’d be guessing but they seem to blend well together. A better than average offering from the Leffe stable, a good Christmas beer at the right strength. I like it.

Uts: mørk rav, rikelig beige skum.
Duft: mye belgisk gjær og krydder, hint av humle.
Smak: middels fyldig, søt, god balanse mellom malt og mild humle. Noe stram og bitter ettersmak.

Pours dark copper with light copper coloured head. Malty aroma. Fairly hoppy, full-bodied flavour. Pleasant christmas beer

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, 33 cl. Clear mahagony red with a frothy decent off-white head leaving a a little lacework. Smells like a Leffe, eg. dried fruity and yeasty. A little nutty to. Taste is sweet dried fruit, caramel, light citrus and a subdued bitterness. Peppery finish, but otherwise not that spicey for a Belgian X-mas offering. Better than most other Leffe offerings, still not very interesting.

33 cl bottle. Amber colored pour with medium sized head. Fruity, caramel, toffee and cherry aroma. Light sweet, malty, pleasant fruity finish. I enjoyed this. I can drink a lot of these this holiday season.

Dark amber colour, off white head. Aroma is sweet malt, some cherry and dark fruit, creamy, some esters. Taste has subtle spice, cinnamon, clove, raisins, cream. I don’t think this is too bad, just like all other leffe beers. Nice Xmas beer to be fair.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours dark with a loose and rapidly disappearing head. Deep fruity nose of cherries and spices. Not quite as heavy a mouthfeel as I would have expected, more laid back in the fruit flavours, a hit of malt. Slightly dry aftertaste. At least it’s not like liquid christmas pudding.
