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.

75 cl bottle from franprix. Less than 3 euros. Absolutely no aroma. Amazing. Purplely red. Very Christmas-y!!! Tastes like beer. A little sour. No describable flavor. Very weird. Not bad, but kind of creepy in the lack of distinctiveness.

Bottle from the Bottle Bank. Appearance - mid brown with a nice head. Nose - treacle, possibly tobacco but definitely a clove thing. Taste - treacle and cloves. Toffee in the background. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy yet tangy texture and a dry agreeable finish. Overall - it’s good in the world of beer but in the world of Belgian beer, it definitely falls short.

andrew_drinks (97) - Luxembourg, LUXEMBOURG - DEC 8, 2014
Bottle from Auchan (as part of a 6 pack... slugging through the other 5 is going to be a chore). Fizzy and brown in the glass, nice and clear. Small head. Sweet aroma, like toasted caramel nuts. No hop character to speak of. In the mouth it’s slick but fizzy. Caramelised sugar, soft brown/demerera... in fact, just various types of sugar. No real depth to the flavour. Not great.

Almost no bubble and no foam. Spicy beer, burnt aftertaste. Not a must but interesting.

ShivanDragon (1796) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - NOV 20, 2014
helder rood/bruin met schuimige licht kaki kraag. aroma is moutig, zoet, caramout, gebrande mouten. Smaken zijn redelijk zoet, matig bitter, redelijk fruitig van oa pruim, rozijn en duidelijk banaan. wat kaneel en met name kardemom, verder wat caramelsmaken van de mout. medium body, dun en glad van textuur. afdronk kruidig en zoetig maar vrij dun voor een kerst biertje, aardig niet bijzonder.

Jak to ma by? piwo na ?wi?ta to kto? si? chyba pomyli?. Prezentacja ?adna, ciemno czerwona barwa, ale potem w smaku brak zdecydowania. Delikatnie s?odkie ale bez "?wi?tecznych" aromatów, jak np go?dziki.
