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.

Embrouille (2843) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 12, 2009
Bottled 33cl. Courtesy of kappldav123. Appearance: It pours a beautiful clear ruby beer with a nicely lasting creamy beige head. Nice lacework. Aroma: Inviting, smooth, subtle and very christmassy. Yeast accentuated, sweet with hints of cherry, molasses, candy sugar, fennel, nutmeg, quite a lot of fudge, cinnamon, tobacco, stuffy sitting room, coconut and coriander. Pleasant. Flavor and palate: Low carbonation. Sweet and very smooth. Medium bodied. Very drinkable. Extremely low bitterness. Yeast driven. Rather interesting. Caramel, cinnamon, walnuts, tobacco, nutmeg and fennel showing up. Sweet yeasty finish with which is reminiscent of marmite and arabic gum. Overall impression: Better than I expected. Thanks kappldav123!

bhensonb (14161) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 17, 2009
Bottle at Taverne ’t Botteltje in Oostend. As Leffe Kerstbier. Pours orange brown with a good beige head. Something of an evergreen aroma. Medium body with very frothy carbonation. Flavor is roast caramel with some evergreen note and some xmas type spice. But not overstated. Drinks better than many Leffes.

prawlie (1500) - ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2011
33 cL bottle from Beers of Europe. Looks the part when poured into a Leffe glass, dark brown with a good head but not too much of a gusher. Typical Leffe aroma, nice and mild, though not highly distinctive. Tastes like a brown coloured Leffe Blond, and is somewhat disappointing. Smooth slightly bitter beer. Not as good as Leffe Bruin, and a bit of style over substance.

holdan (260) - USA - NOV 29, 2011
Ruby with nice foamy head. Aroma weak on the nose, but can trace some sweet fruit, malt. Taste sweet fruit, candymalt, some bitter hops, and yet quit neutral, almost watery. Medium body, smooth. Easy and drinkable but could use some more character/alcohol.

VsXsV (3955) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 26, 2011
33 cl bottle. Clear, deep amber liquid with medium off-white head. Aroma of dried fruits, figs, dark fruits, caramel, toffee, banana and cherries. Aroma is malty, caramelly and light sweet and medium bitter. Biscuity and bready. Medium to full bodied with good carbonation. Good belgo ale with lots of fruity, malty notes. Better than I expected.

Holy (837) - GERMANY - JAN 12, 2012
Bottle gifted by a friend - very much appreciated! Nicely spiced, dark fruits, very slight metallic idea end game, but not enough to ruin the experience. Not bad for a "Mass Produced" Belgian.
