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.

Bière Leffe moyenne peu interessante, pas de gout spécial... Très sucrée mais c’ est une leffe, on ne peux pas "taper" dessus...

Icedwarf (394) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - MAY 16, 2014
Donker bruin bier met gemiddeld schuim. Smaak is minder aanwezig dan de dubbel, lichter en minder rook en iets zoeter en ook iets meer fruit. Smakelijk bier, blijft echter niet lang hangen.

chriso (7416) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2004
Dark brown colour. Quite malty with distinctive wheat tones. Becomes a bit sweet and cloying after a while. Draught, Bar La Terrasse, Villedieu-les-Poels, France, December 2003

delnoche (453) - Alamogordo, New Mexico, USA - NOV 20, 2010
33cl bottle poured into a Chimay Trappist glass. Dark amber with one finger creamy off-white head. Aroma is barnyard. Flavor is the typical Leffe yeast and not much else. Medium body, medium carbonation. Medium-lasting finish, moderately bitter with some barnyard notes. Boring.

10/06/2011 33cl bottle @ home - BB: 1/04/2011 (2011-256) Thanks to Geers for the free bottle (it’s true I would never have given any money for this)

Completely clear red brown beer, creamy off-white head, pretty stable and adhesive. Aroma: caramel, some citrus fruits. MF: good carbon, light to medium body, bit watery texture. Taste: caramel, some malts, bit of citrus. Aftertaste: little bitter, but watery. Some mocha and alcohol. OK, have to admit it’s not undrinkable, but it’s pretty watery and not a Christmas beer by far.

Hogfather (65) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - FEB 26, 2012
Bottle at BeerStore Too, Thessaloniki: dark fruits, caramel, probably bread, raisin and maybe strawberry (!). Medium body, dark red colour with small head and average carbonation. Slightly sweet. . Easy drinkable, will drink it again sometime in future.

Bloekie (210) - BELGIUM - NOV 20, 2009
Amber brown clear body. Soap-reminding foam which decays very very quickly and is very unappealing. Taste is bitterness and leathery, not good at all. In the aftertaste there is a hint of sour cherries which makes up for a bit of the awfulness. Overall not a good beer.

harrisoni (14015) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2010
Bottle at post pre ZBF, bought at an all night shop in Bruges. Some cardboard on aroma, some fruit in mouth. Not particularly great, but just about ok.

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