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.

Draft. Pours dark, your standard christmas flavors and spices. Pretty good, and I agree the best of the Leffes.

Maria (10214) - 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.

Bottled 330ml. -Straight from the bottle somewhere in Brussels. Light notes of spices in the nose. Moderate roasted malty, candy sugar and spices with notes of cinammon and dark fruits. A bit too sweet but overall good Noël.

Abio (1859) - Waasland, BELGIUM - JAN 31, 2010
While the aroma’s where good, the taste was some less. Seems Leffe just really wanted to have a Christmas-beer, maybe they had better wait some more before selling it.

MoritzF (9423) - Ottobrunn, 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
