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.

[330ml bottle, The Bottle, York] Pours dark reddish brown with a thin, fast-reducing head. Slightly spicy aromas and a mildly spiced taste – but other than that it’s extremely close to Leffe Brune. Sweet malt and a large amount of yeast – not much else [21122010]

Skinnyviking (7601) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 29, 2011
Bottle. Low fluffy white lasting head. Clear dark brown body. Caramel malt aroma and flavor with a fair amount of hops bitterness. Low carbonation. Long aftertaste.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 10, 2011
Dark coppery colored with little yellow head. Sweet and caramelly, slightly grainy tropical fruity house aroma, some spices here too. Medium bodied. Flavor is sweet as well with thin roastiness, some grain and caramel also come up. Definite Leffe.

I guess I expected too much from a Leffe Christmas beer. It didn’t quite deliver.

Marsiblursi (3045) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 2, 2011
(bottle) Pours dark amber to brown with a small head. The aroma holds burned plastic, phenols, brown sugar, a wisper of roast, light dark fruits and earth. The flavour is light to medium sweet, light bitter and tiny acidic. Sugar, fruits and light caramel. The mouthfeel is clean and light watery with light to medium carbonation. Light to medi bodied.

TBone (13716) - Pori, FINLAND - JAN 14, 2012
Bottled 330ml (BZ, BB 09/2012)
Deep ruby color, good off-white, cloudy head, lace. Aroma is woody, grassy, a bit papery and with notes of alcohol. Medium-bodied. Malty, semi-sweet with berryish notes, hops, grass and some nuttyness too. Typical Leffe: "ok" but not very exciting Belgian Xmas brew.

MADpalace (219) - Budel, NETHERLANDS - MAR 12, 2012
Caramel red color with creamy collar that disappears fast. A bit musty smell of malt with some pleasant cherry sweetness in the background. Strong bitter ale, not as sweet as to be expected (not a warm and cosey Christmas feeling). Alltogether another disappointing example that ale is really not my style.

MaartenRF10 (1670) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 30, 2012
Clear red brown, off white head. Not much aroma. Taste had some winter spices. Not a good body, high carbo.

UPDATED: DEC 16, 2012 Sampled at OBER Kerstbierfestival 2012. Clear dark amber to red-brown color, small off-white head. Smell malts and grains, lightly sweet. Tastes the same: malts, grains, sweetness. Ok body, medium carbonation.
