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.

Countbeer (6221) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 4, 2011
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.

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.

Gangstergafje (696) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - FEB 15, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2015 The beer pours a soft almond colored foam, which collapses extremely fast. Only a little bit of foam forms, and a minimal bit of foam remains on top of the bear. The color of the beer is dark amber. The beer is nice and clear, very clear. The smell is nice, but very mild. Almost like water was aded to the beer, which is odd, because it came in the bottle (without the cap though). The smell has a little almond and some hops in it. The beer has the typical Leffe aroma, like all Leffe beers. This makes the smell somehow familiar, which is nice. The taste is better. I taste lemons, and a tiny bitter smoke flavor, together with some hops.The beer has a nice bitterness, balanced perfectly by the sweetness. There is also the typical Leffe flavor. The flavor is not strong enough though, it is not as good as aspects. It is not as fruity, sweet, spicy and warming as I aspect from a Christmas ale. A little disappointing, a pity.

0.33l bottle. Dark red color with nice browny head. Aroma of caramel, malt, spices, fruits and honey. Taste is bitter and sweet. It is extremely well balanced with just enough sweetness for a Christmas beer without it being too sweet.
