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.

33cl bottle in a Delirium Noel glass. Pours a dark brown liquid with a red hue. The head is nice and generous and perfectly carbonated. This is clearly a Christmas version of the brune of which I am not a fan however, this is much improved with the addition of spices. The pine resin present in the brune is still here but is somewhat tamed by the extra spices although the flavour is actually quite welcome in a Christmas drink. Not the best but very enjoyable.

75 cl bottle from franprix. Less than 3 euros. Absolutely no aroma. Amazing. Purplely red. Very Christmas-y!!! Tastes like beer. A little sour. No describable flavor. Very weird. Not bad, but kind of creepy in the lack of distinctiveness.

Deep, off white head, brown colour, perfumey aroma, sweet with a little spice. I’d be guessing but they seem to blend well together. A better than average offering from the Leffe stable, a good Christmas beer at the right strength. I like it.

En comparaison avec les autres de la même gamme (Grimbergen et Affligem), c’est la plus réussie. Agréable et à priori sans arôme ajouté.

For me, the Leffe Noel is slightly better than the Affligem Noel and Grimbergen Noel. Medium body, spiced, good carbo.

Almost no bubble and no foam. Spicy beer, burnt aftertaste. Not a must but interesting.
