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.

Donc Leffe se met à l’esprit festif de Noël? On retrouve là une bière dans le grand style InBev. Personnellement, je ne trouve à cette bière rien de festif. Couleur rubis/ambre clair, mousse beige. Arôme est fruité, malt et caramel, sucre brun, faible et rien de spécial, ressent un peu les additives sucré. En bouche, même expérience ratée que pour leur Leffe cerise, une bière qui se veut de tradition et en fait fini sans grande inspiration à vouloir couvrir tout le marché brassicole. Notes de fruits noirs, prunes et cerise, cassis présentant une fine couche acidulée avec en retrait un côté caramélisé. Amateur de vraies bières de Noël et de saison hivernale, cette bière n’est pas pour vous.

Martinus (2892) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - AUG 7, 2011
Brownish red beer, cream head. Rather sweet malts aroma, caramel, slightly roasted with a light acidic tone. Flavour malty, rather sweet, some slight roasted malts bitterness. Finish short but rather sweet. OK, not brilliant.
(From 33cl bottle)
