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.

ReV2 (143) - Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2012
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

JanLaursen (3063) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 1, 2012
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.

Clear red brown, off white head. Not much aroma. Taste had some winter spices. Not a good body, high carbo.
