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.

rami_pl (120) - Warszawa, POLAND - JAN 24, 2015
Ladne piwo - piekna barwa brazowo-miedziana ze szkarlatnymi przeblyskami, bujna piana (niestety redukuje sie do obraczki w kilka minut), brudzi szklo... Aromat dublowo-swiateczny - rodzynki, banany, puietnikowo, karmelowo, przyprawowo. jakies inne kwaskowate owoce, karmel (po lekkim ogrzaniu), slod... bardzo fajnie zlozony. Smak podobnie - karmelowa slodkosc, slodowosc, owocowa kwaskowatosc, rodzynki, piernikowo-przyprawowe klimaty. Dosc wytrawne, wysokie wysycenie (szczypie w jezyk), niska goryczka. Sumarycznie: troche jak leffe brune, tyle ze nieco a) rozwodnione (i to psuje odbior) b) dodane przyprawy. Wole brune, ale Noel tez przyjemne

Tap at Sheraton Brussels. Pours clear dark brown with a medium, frothy beige head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is sweet malt, dates, light acetic notes and phenols. Flavor is phenols, light sourness, dates and raisins, light malt and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

boto (1898) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - JAN 13, 2015
Draught: This one pours a ruby tinged mahogany color. There was a bit of an off white head that lingered and left some lacing. The nose was nice. Notes of cinnamon, toffee, caramel, some yeastiness and some dark fruits. The taste was also good. A bit of cinnamon and other spices, but not overly done. Nice malt body, with notes of toffee, caramel, dark fruits and some yeastiness. A decent brew!

Douberd (2699) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JAN 8, 2015
(Leffe Bière de Noël) Bottle 330 ml at home, served into a tulip, ABV 6.6% Amber colour on the body, clear, with good activity in it. Good sized tan head, with very good retention, leaving medium lacing on the glass. Aroma has some dark fruits but well hidden under lots of caramel. Hints of spices, a bit faint though. The spices are more obvious on the taste, with caramel again, some toffee, red and light dark fruits. Not bad, only there are some metallic notes on the finish, nothing offensive to be honest. Medium thin body with the carbonation being on the high side. Okay beer, not one I’d choose to drink at home during the christmas holidays but I wouldn’t say no to it in a bar at the same period.

33cl flesje via Brewery Shop, Brugge Alcoholpercentage van 6,6% Uitgeschonken in origineel Leffe glas Uiterlijk: koperrood met kleine schuimkraag Aroma en smaak: caramel, donker fruit, zoet, licht kruidig Conclusie: lijkt een beetje op Radieuse alleen dan minder vol. Beetje tegenvaller na het lange zoeken. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bonkiedeaap (333) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 28, 2014
Bottle from Hoogvliet in Hardinxveld. The beer has a hazy dark amber color and a large cream colored head, with a lot of CO2 in the beer. In the aroma are clear tones noticable of dark fruits, a lot of spices (like cloves) and also the sweetness of caramel. The taste is full bodied, with the tones from the aroma, with a whiff of vanilla and a nice bitterness from the spices in the end. The finish is long, a little warming and nicely bitter.
