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.

Bottle: Big frotty creamy head on top of a deep dark orange red to brown beer. Smell malts, fruit, spices, yeast, caramel and grains. Taste a sweet and spicy mix of sweet fruit and pepper turns to a very soft well balanced beer, malts, caramel, spices, light fruity and a hint of yeast and alcohol. Mid body, low carbo and soft light tingling mouthfeel.

660ml bottle from Auchan supermarket Aroma - not that exciting Appearance-Brown/amber, clear, creamy head taste- Very Leffe, caramel. burnt wood, spice Overall - Its been a few years since I tasted any Leffe beer and I have to say that I loved this. Its the sort of beer that makes me wonder why people say they don’t like beer. So different from a beer that I would drink on a regular basis.

Pours dark copper with light copper coloured head. Malty aroma. Fairly hoppy, full-bodied flavour. Pleasant christmas beer; good with food.

33cl bottle. Raisins, herbal mix, roasted. Copperbrown, white to beige head, creamy to frothy head, lasting long, lacing. Full taste, caramel, raisins, herbs. Soft taste with some sharp hints. Slowly a little bitterness comes in, soft fizzy. I just liked it. Good, tasty beer.

Bottle at home. Variant of Leffe Brune but with a little more burnt caramel and a touch more bitterness. Lower in alcohol than most Christmas offerings but nevertheless an interesting, tasty beer.

worldbeertaste (1693) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2013
Medium to dark amber with a frothy, lacy, somewhat lasting off-white head. Smells of malt, nut, soft roast, dried fruit, figs, caramel with a yeast that reminds me of Leffe Blond. Medium oily body with soft carbonation. Sweet caramel, nut, toasted malt, with a dry bitter nutty finish. Sweet and fruity with some faint spice. Nice and easy to drink.

One of my favorite Leffe variants. Introduced to me in 2012 in Belgium - in the U.S. we only find blond & brune. Nice one around the holidays with a pretty good overall balance on all fronts, but enough holiday spice to get you in the spirit.
