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.

Bottled (thanks fonefan). Reddish deep amber colour with small beige head. Aroma is caramel, slight alcohol, yeast, fruits and mild spices. Flavour is caramel malts, spices, some bread and mild notes of alcohol as well.

This is getting big promotion all across Paris on billboards, so this winter at least it should be widely available in France. Nice dark amber colour with a foamy head. Soft cherry aromas buried in a nut and wood mix that emerges from mostly malt ingredients. Taste is a lot of mahogany and oak with an alcoholic and watery finish. Another miss by Leffe, this is okay but could be much better.

0,3 liter fles. Ik heb deze al een poosje in de kelder en nu met Kerst moet het maar gebeuren. Goed bier. Qua kleur had ik een dubbele verwacht. Ik ben niet erg enthousiast.

Uts: mørk rav, rikelig beige skum. Duft: mye belgisk gjær og krydder, hint av humle. Smak: middels fyldig, søt, god balanse mellom malt og mild humle. Noe stram og bitter ettersmak. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hoju777 (136) - FRANCE - DEC 24, 2012
75 cl bottle from franprix. Less than 3 euros. Absolutely no aroma. Amazing. Purplely red. Very Christmas-y!!! Tastes like beer. A little sour. No describable flavor. Very weird. Not bad, but kind of creepy in the lack of distinctiveness.

Smoked aroma. The original yeasty Leffe-flavour. This is not very interesting.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown! / Waikato, NEW ZEALAND - APR 8, 2010
Bottle. Dark red with laced white head. Nose and flavour of dried fruit, caramel and alcohol. A tinny finish that lingers. It’s rough all round. I didn’t expect much from this one.

(33cl bottle dated best by 4-15-11 thanks to bu11zeye) clear orange, few bubbles. Nose of rye, candied citrus. Taste of orange, maple and a bit under-carbonated.
