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.

larsniclas (6699) - Billdal, SWEDEN - JAN 25, 2004
Bottled. Dark vrown with a champagne-ish look and palate. Rather fresh, though aweetish, with notes of toffee.

Maverick34 (2984) - New York, USA - DEC 27, 2007
Draft. Pours dark, your standard christmas flavors and spices. Pretty good, and I agree the best of the Leffes.

gyhallmanti (278) - Groningen, NETHERLANDS - JUL 15, 2016
3cl bottle at Pappa Joes in Groningen. Pour a clear ruby colour with a small off-white head. Aroma of spices, malts, caramel, cacao, light fruity. Taste is fairly sweet, light bitter with a light dry bitter finish. Notes of spices, light herbs, caramel, malts, light cherry. Texture is watery, medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Blueshawk (349) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 8, 2016
- rtlich-braune Farbe mit leichter Schaumbildung - leichte Aromen nach Malz, Drrobst, Gewrzen und etwas Rauch - passende Carbonisierung - geschmacklich bleiben vor allem die Gewrznoten im Vordergrund - aber auch der Rauch verschwindet nicht gnzlich - der Abgang ist dann mit Se und Hopfenbitternis gut ausgewogen Fazit: Richtig gutes Weihnachtsbier

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 29, 2008
Darker brown coloured beer with a ruby red touch. Light carbonation and a small white head. Malty, light (ripe) fruity roasted aroma. Full palate. Finish is little malty and fruity but misses some character for being a christmas beer.

Yves (2834) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - NOV 30, 2008
Clear darker amber coloured beer with small off-white head. Few carbonation. Hoppy little herby aroma. Full little creamy palate. Finish is malty which ends to stronger bitter. Just something missing to be good.

bkurtz (1060) - MOROCCO - DEC 31, 2008
Poured dark brown/amber with an off-white head. Some roasted malts and some hoppy bitterness. Nice beer, but not enough depth.

Bullit (4445) - Burgos, SPAIN - FEB 12, 2009
Red-brown colour, off-white head. Aroma has dark fruits and spices. Flavour is spicy, malty and fruity. Not very impressive.

Brandman (2836) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 8, 2009
330 ml bottle. Clear red/brown body with tanned head. Aroma has cherries, spices, cardamom, some alcohol, and surprinsingly some sourness. Flavour is metallic somehow. First taste is cherry and some sourness, taste goes away very fast. Some maltiness in taste and also a strong spice, just cant point out what. Thin mouthfeel.
