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.

Ungstrup (29207) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 3, 2010
Bottled. A deep red beer with a lazing off-white head. The aroma has notes of nuts, malt, caramel, and some yeast lending it a bit of fruit. The flavor is very sweet with notes of caramel, malt, nuts, bread, and a bit of metal, leading to a dry metallic and nutty finish. Thanks Papsoe for this beer.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2010
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of fonefan. Pours a clear deep amber with a neat off-white head leaving a neat lacework. The yeasty aroma has Leffe writen all over it. Medium body, sweet dried fruit and a little fruit, but this is entirely a yeast job. No real evident spices and a rather subdued bitterness. No yeast sediment in Leffe’s anymore? Damm, it must’ve been too long since I last had one. 080210

Hazy brown beer, good off white head. Fairly neutral palate. Palate is slightly soft. Sweetish malt - creamy. Nice fruity undertone - cherry dominant. Finishes semi dry and malty. Not bad for a Xmas beer!
