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.

delnoche (443) - 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.

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.

MrW (420) - 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.

cmc619 (409) - California, USA - DEC 17, 2013
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.

janubio (407) - 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 Again, it’s out of date, so I’ll have to try it again, my first impression is of a good but not exceptional beer.

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

Brown color with beige head. Yeasty aroma. Taste, fruity with bittersweet finish. Not bad beer.

Straling (362) - 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.

adster (331) - HUNGARY - AUG 9, 2014
Élénk borostyán színű ital, fűszeres és bársonyosan puha illata van, mely mandula és szegfűszeg, vékonyka karamell és gyümölcskenyér képét idézi meglehetősen finomra hangolva és sejtelmesen szerényen. Süteménytésztás alapokon érkeznek az összbenyomást árnyaló, imitt-amott felbukkanó fűszerek élénkítő jelleggel, némi mazsolás, közepes édességgel és vajas, jellegzetes élesztős színezettel, telt és harmonikus karakterisztikával, mely összeszedettségéből a végkifejlet tekintetében sem enged. Utóíze egyenes következménye visszafogottan elegáns aromájának, egy nem különben óvatos, kellemesen komlós kesernyével zárva a simogató ingerek sorát.
