Also sold as ’St Feuillien Spéciale’ in the USA. This beer has a generous head - compact and firm. Its slightly brown colour is the result of the roasted barley. It has a dark ruby brown colour and a very intense aroma. The aromatic herbs and spices used greatly enhance its delicious smell. This beer is full-bodied with a smoothness that is the result of the synergy of caramelized malts, carefully controlled fermentation and long cold storage. St Feuillien Cuvée de Noël has a very subtle bitterness that is the dominant flavour in this harmonious ale that strikes a perfect balance between all the different ingredients.

mjik83 (755) - - DEC 28, 2014
33cl flesje via 8 Zaligheden, Maastricht Alcoholpercentage van 9% Uitgeschonken in Grimbergen glas Uiterlijk: koperkleurig met redelijk schuimkraagje Aroma en smaak: sinaasappelschil, drop, laurier, donker fruit, caramel, anijs Conclusie: aangenaam, maar niet helemaal mijn smaak. Kerstbier hoort wel kruidig te zijn, maar dat anijsachtige net als bij de Gouden Carolus Christmas is niet mijn ding.

olsvammel (3668) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 26, 2014
Bottle from a shop in Germany. Fruity smell with liqourice. Similar taste. Im not that fond of the liqourice but I reckon that others that do like it wil enjoy this beer.
