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.

JorisPPattyn (7796) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - DEC 14, 2003
(draught) Colour of coca-cola, little head, but very lacey. Nice perfumed nose, biscuit, caramel or Sachertorte, but fresher. Medicinal, bit piney flavour. Sweet aftertaste, like a cola gum. Bit thinnish structure, but the body is there. Alcohol too, even when 6.5 isn't all that high. Better than feared, but far from great.
