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.

Brune ambrée, effervescence moyenne, col fin. Malts caramel, légèrement fruitée, assez sèche et toujours ce mauvais goût propre à la Leffe...

Dit is geen slecht bier, maar een kerstbier moet een goede, volle, uitgesproken smaak hebben en dat heeft dit bier niet.

A Mes rate. Bottle at mums on Boxing Day.
Ruby Amber colour with a thin film topping. Burnt plastic and sugar aroma with lots of dull yeast. Tastes like the regular leffe blonde with a touch of caramel malt and some more burnt sugar. Awful medicinal finish.

Bottle shared by Robert at the SSSSLT. Pour was amber-ruby colored, small head with weak retention. The aroma was candy sweet darker fruits, some bubblegum type elements maybe too. The flavor followed the aroma, just a nastily sweet beer, although not syrupy thick or anything. Might as well spike a drink box if you want something like this. Mouthfeel was low on carbonation, a little bit of that stickiness. Thanks again Robert, a great SSSSLT! I think we’re back to the SSSLT nomenclature after this one!

Pours a a dark red color with a small off white head that desapeared quickly. Aroma of malts and some sweet red fruit sirup and some spices. Flavors is a bit metal, with roasted malts, a hint of red fruits, some caramel and spices. Good carbonation, with a sweet bitterness. A little to sweet and the over taste of sirup is clear. Its drinkable but nothing great.

[Draught] Brown coloured. Very bad yeasty aroma. Sweet and yeasty flavour. Thin. Very bad. I understand why the Belgians send all of this to France.

3 x 330 ml horizontal tasting Bière de Noël - 9° - Ruby Bière De Noël: pours clear amber. bland bland aroma with a bit of spice, not different from the blonde. Smells bad. Medoum body, low carbonation, small touch of spice. No taste. Really, no taste. 1/5 9°: pours blond to yellow, thin fizzy head. Light honey & malt aromas (but had to smell my nose off). Sweet body all the way through the end. Light malty taste. Mèh. 1.9/5 Ruby: pours light red with an amber hue. Aroma... f*** - groce: artificial cherry bubblegum. Sweet body but - pasteurised and filtered like hell - render it sweet/sour in a weirdly and groce way. Taste is rosewater. Bad rosewater. Aftertaste is sticky gum. 0.5/5
