COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

MGantzel (126) - Aalborg, DENMARK - DEC 23, 2015
Denne St Feuillien juleøl har et uklart brunt udseende med et svagt hvidt skum. Øllen smager lidt sødt af karamel og har en syrlig frugtig fornemmelse. Høj karbonering.

SinH4 (1604) - Garching, GERMANY - DEC 22, 2015
Brown color with tan head. Aroma is spicy, liquorice, brown sugar. Taste is similar, but the carbonation kills it. Way too aggressive carbonation. Okay, but I’ve had better Belgian Strongs...

anstei (645) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - DEC 22, 2015
Bottle. Very spice-malty, but too heavily carbonized. I’m sure there would be lot of taste if it weren’t for that. Some sweetness makes it through.

bonkiedeaap (534) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 20, 2015
Bottle from Dranken Verheyen in Poppel. The beer is reddish brown colored and has a nice and large broken white head, with very livingly Co2. The aroma is sweet with tones of licorice, candy sugar and malts, and spices (anice like) and a hint of alcohol. The taste is full bodied and smooth, with nice malt and caramel notes and ends which some nice warming alcohol notes. The finish ends a little dry and light bitter and has some nice spicy notes.

minutemat (3274) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2015
330ml bottle @ Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours haze brown / deep amber, tan head. Aroma is spice and ginger. Taste is hugely spicy with lots of ginger cake. Some toffee and Christmas cake. Quite full-on in the spice department. Bit too much for me.

Ysok02 (623) - MOns, BELGIUM - DEC 14, 2015
à nouveau une très belle bière pour finir la soirée, une robe brune, une mousse abondante, un nez complexe épicé et malté et une bouche ample, puissante, ronde et onctueuse. Tout ce que l’on attend d’une bière de Noel.
