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.

This is clearly the best of the Leffe brand. It pours a dark plumb-red with a diminishing head. Though the basic taste is all malts, the generic sweetness of your everyday Leffe is elevated to greater heights with the addition of spices and Christmas cheer. There are, of course, no hops, but the plumb darkness is a fruity supplement, and the alcohol adds a bit of a bitter edge.

Bottle from Beers of Europe. Mahogany colour with a white head. Raisins, chocolate, figs, black cherry aromas. Nice Crimbo feel. Cinnamon, coriander, dates, marzipan and chocolate flavours. Sweet and warming finish. Not bad at all.

worldbeertaste (1795) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2013
Medium to dark amber with a frothy, lacy, somewhat lasting off-white head. Smells of malt, nut, soft roast, dried fruit, figs, caramel with a yeast that reminds me of Leffe Blond. Medium oily body with soft carbonation. Sweet caramel, nut, toasted malt, with a dry bitter nutty finish. Sweet and fruity with some faint spice. Nice and easy to drink.

One of my favorite Leffe variants. Introduced to me in 2012 in Belgium - in the U.S. we only find blond & brune. Nice one around the holidays with a pretty good overall balance on all fronts, but enough holiday spice to get you in the spirit.

Bottled from Carrefour in Genk, Deep warm ruby-orange color, fruity vanilla cinammon nose with thin tan head. Aroma is fruits (dark berries ?), cinammon, vanilla. Flavour is very apparent with bitter orange, vanilla, cinammon. Not a heavweight, medium carbonation flattens it. Nicely composed beer.
