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.

Icedwarf (262) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - MAY 16, 2014
Donker bruin bier met gemiddeld schuim. Smaak is minder aanwezig dan de dubbel, lichter en minder rook en iets zoeter en ook iets meer fruit. Smakelijk bier, blijft echter niet lang hangen.

erickok (3424) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - APR 12, 2014
Never rated this? Well I got a bottle here. Pours brown and clean, with a small head only. Light caramel, light toasty, very clean yeast, almost lager like if not for the brown molasses like sweetness. Taste is quite sweet, some spice perhaps. Boring and sugary but not horrible. (25cl bottle, at Elodie’s French dinner party)

Bière Leffe moyenne peu interessante, pas de gout spécial... Très sucrée mais c’ est une leffe, on ne peux pas "taper" dessus...

ABT_S54 (124) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2014
33cl bottle in a Delirium Noel glass. Pours a dark brown liquid with a red hue. The head is nice and generous and perfectly carbonated. This is clearly a Christmas version of the brune of which I am not a fan however, this is much improved with the addition of spices. The pine resin present in the brune is still here but is somewhat tamed by the extra spices although the flavour is actually quite welcome in a Christmas drink. Not the best but very enjoyable.
