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.

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 Again, it’s out of date, so I’ll have to try it again, my first impression is of a good but not exceptional beer.

One of my favorite Leffe variants. Introduced to me in 2012 in Belgium - in the U.S. we only find blond & brune. Nice one around the holidays with a pretty good overall balance on all fronts, but enough holiday spice to get you in the spirit.

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

Straling (345) - Hoensbroek, NETHERLANDS - JAN 3, 2009
Bottle 33cl. Pours a clear ruby colour with a small size head with little carbonation. Smell is very fruity and sweet, can smell grapes and spices, rather pleasant. Taste on the other hand a bit dissappointing, very plain flavour, the smell can be detected slightly but not enough to make it stand out. Nice beer but not really anything special.

R2k2 (338) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 25, 2012
Nice, complicated aroma, nice full taste with the typical leffe twist. A little bit smokey. Nice, dark red color. Aftertaste stays on the palate for a while. Lekker, gecompliceerd aroma. Goede volle smaak, met de typerische leffe twist. Beetje rokerig. Mooie donkere kleur. Nasmaak blijft goed op het gehemelte hangen.

Icedwarf (291) - 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.

Very enjoyable little beer this Leffe Biere de Noelle. Has a nice dark red color with a taste of dark fruit. Slightly bitter but with a nic sweetness.

This is clearly the best of the Leffe brand. It pours a dark plumb-red with a diminishing head. Though the basic taste is all malts, the generic sweetness of your everyday Leffe is elevated to greater heights with the addition of spices and Christmas cheer. There are, of course, no hops, but the plumb darkness is a fruity supplement, and the alcohol adds a bit of a bitter edge.

Ruby with nice foamy head. Aroma weak on the nose, but can trace some sweet fruit, malt. Taste sweet fruit, candymalt, some bitter hops, and yet quit neutral, almost watery. Medium body, smooth. Easy and drinkable but could use some more character/alcohol.
