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.

It is dark amber with a huge, creamy head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, candy sugar, yeast and light spice and dark fruits. The flavour has sweetness and the same notes as the aroma, but also evident alcohol and the finish is rather spicy.

Koelschtrinker (9998) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 17, 2011
Verhaltener, spter deutlicherer Malzantrunk, in dem se und verbrannte Malznoten zu gleichen Teilen enthalten sind. Nach diesem durchaus angenehmen Antrunk stagniert das Bier und ruht sich auf der slichen Malzigkeit aus. Wenig getreidig, auch der Alkohol ist ganz leicht sprbar. Getrbt wird das bisher positive Bild durch den trockenen und leicht bitteren Abgang, der nicht zu der vorher herrschenden Se passenden will. Solide! 9/11/11/11/8/11

Lubiere (9765) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 4, 2012
A clear brown ale with a thin lacing mocha head. In aroma, maderized malt with caramel notes, honey. In mouth, a sweet nutty malt with faint herbs, coriander, cloves, light bodied, tired. Bieropholie import.

FatPhil (9152) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 18, 2011
330ml bottle (?, Brussels)
6 Sweet bananabread aroma, some butter on that.
4 Rich red, self-supporting tight head.
6 Cakey, caramelly and buttery. Not bad at all. Maybe a touch sweet, but forgivable for a christmas beer.
3 Sweet sugary palate, pleasant carbonation. Very simple sweet finish with some cut mixed peel and very emasculated hops.
12 Lacking real character, but certainly not actually bad in any way. As a mass-produced product, this actually good.

MoritzF (8402) - Bochum, GERMANY - NOV 17, 2010
(bottle, 33cl) Clear, ruby amber colour with a big and tanned foamy head. Sweet and slightly toasted malty aroma with bready and subtle fruity notes, as well as a spicy touch. Moderately sweet and slightly bitter flavour, medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Malty taste with notes of caramel, bread, chestnuts and shy berry-fruity notes; sweet and slightly bitter nutty and slightly spicy finish. Not world-shaking but pretty drinkable. 15.XI.10
