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.

TBone (14267) - 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.

Erzengel (5644) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - FEB 8, 2015
*Old rating, best before 16/03/10. Malzig-süßliches Bier. Hauch von Alkohol, leichte Röstaromen, verbranntes Karamell. Im Nachgeschmack abgestimmt herb-malzig mit karamelliger Süße. Sehr süffig, nicht zu tief, nett.
