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.

Indra (2700) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - DEC 25, 2005
750ml bottle, 2004 vintage. Sweet, estery aroma, malty and spicy with notes of doughy, musty yeast, toffee, cinnamon, allspice, raisin and red apple skin. Hazy deep, dark red brown color, the ivory head lasting and thick with fairly spotty lace. Flavor profile is tangy, lightly citric and fruity to start, the midpoint seeing some gentle bitterness introduced and finishing with a blend of rich, sugary malts, berry-like fruit, orange, apricot, cookie, faint roastiness, spices and a slight alcohol presence. Nicely smooth palate, active yet mellow and warming, with a hint of acidity and a full body. Frighteningly easy to drink and very flavorful.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - DEC 25, 2005
750 ml bottle caged and corked - Pours a murky brown with a short offwhite head that dissipates quickly to a film that laces some on the way down. Aroma is yeast, caramel, apples, some cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla. Flavor is spicy as well notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, apples, yeast and caramel can also be found in the flavor. Palate is medium bodied and smooth to drink. Not much carbonation there. Nice brew to celebrate with.

jonsiii (165) - Fredericia, DENMARK - DEC 23, 2005
Tap @ Heidis Bier Bar. Looks almost perfect with a apperance, with a very tight and long-lasting head. Very complex taste with lots of fruits and a typical belgian beer.
