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.

Maria (10187) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAY 20, 2009
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.

MoritzF (8676) - 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

JorisPPattyn (8277) - Ursel, 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.
