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.

TheDog (518) - Aarhus, DENMARK - NOV 21, 2009
Bottle. Golden brown reddish colour with beige head. Aroma and taste of caramel, bread and citrus. Not too sugary sweet as some xmas brews and this deing a very nice and balanced Leffe. Not a long finished but I want one more. Its nice.

psilosophy (486) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - DEC 20, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 6, 2011 Bouteille de 75cl. Ambrée rougeoyante, mousse moyenne de tenue correcte. Un bon équilibre entre les épices et des arômes plus fruités. Une "noêl" très correcte. Trouvée à intermarché - Montigny en Gohelle

GSAP (480) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 10, 2011
Thin aroma, a bit of grass. Taste is delicate, maybe not completely convincing, but hints of cherry and apple are present; the long finish is malty.

KoNrRiI (449) - Århus, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2012
0.33 bottle. Aroma seems to be rather equally divided between hops and malts, some christmas-like spicy additions in the background along with a delicate alcoholic scent and a subtle. Dark scarlet color and a small off-white head of very poor retention. Taste is pretty pleasant, sweet and malty, not very intricate. The beer has medium body and a fine creamy feel, however carbonation is somewhat to lively for this kind of beer which I feel should be enjoyed with family or a group of friends on a cold afternoon by a fireplace. The aftertaste is short and sweet, does not leave any sour or bitter residues. Overall it is a fine beer, very well suited for winter, quite drinkable for its kind and not overly sweet.

eManu (445) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 11, 2010
Pours a a dark red color with a small off white head that desapeared quickly. Aroma of malts and some sweet red fruit sirup and some spices. Flavors is a bit metal, with roasted malts, a hint of red fruits, some caramel and spices. Good carbonation, with a sweet bitterness. A little to sweet and the over taste of sirup is clear. Its drinkable but nothing great.

2010 version Transfering data from personal beer file. I drank this beer a long time ago. I’ll update this rating if I have the chance to drink it again.

delnoche (441) - Alamogordo, New Mexico, USA - NOV 20, 2010
33cl bottle poured into a Chimay Trappist glass. Dark amber with one finger creamy off-white head. Aroma is barnyard. Flavor is the typical Leffe yeast and not much else. Medium body, medium carbonation. Medium-lasting finish, moderately bitter with some barnyard notes. Boring.

mcdav2154 (436) - GERMANY - OCT 17, 2009
this is actually what I expect in a christmas beer. a darker color that could be called amber. sweet caramel with a slight bitter background. Medium to big sized maltiness. fun beer to try since I’ve never seen this one around bitburg, germany.

MrW (402) - Londerzeel, BELGIUM - APR 20, 2013
33cl bottle. Raisins, herbal mix, roasted. Copperbrown, white to beige head, creamy to frothy head, lasting long, lacing. Full taste, caramel, raisins, herbs. Soft taste with some sharp hints. Slowly a little bitterness comes in, soft fizzy. I just liked it. Good, tasty beer.

janubio (390) - SPAIN - OCT 7, 2013
300 ml. bottle. Nice red mahogany colour, very big head that take its time to fade and leaves a big lace. Smell of dried fruits, some caramel and some spices, but not clearly discernible. Sticky palate, taste of spices and dried fruits, but, as with te smell, not discernible. Again, it’s out of date, so I’ll have to try it again, my first impression is of a good but not exceptional beer.
