First rating for 2005!
On tap at Cafe Leffe in Arras, France. Red-brown with a good beige heady. Sweet yeasty aroma. Flavor is sweet with notes of roasted malt, carmel. Thin and watery. Uninteresting. Not a great beer, but by no means bad.

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.

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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
