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.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - DEC 12, 2005
Deep crimson color, retentive puffy/creamy tan head with thick sheets of lacing. Nose of sappy sweet hops and spicy malts; notes of grapenuts, licorice, pine, toasted fennel and light alcohol. The flavor is clean and balanced with a light acidity and moderate creamy carbonation. Nice plum flavor, molasses with a chewy maltiness like pancake or biscuits. The finish is quick and pleasing. Surprisingly drinkable for 9%. Clean belgian yeast and specialty malts blend with spices to create this tasty holiday ale.

porterdude (170) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - DEC 12, 2005
Poured a muddy brownish color, with a off white head. A very floral aroma with hints of figs, plums, and bread yeast. On tasting this beer I noticed almost all the aromas carry over into the taste, which is a rather good thing. Pretty balanced with the alcohol, nothing to apparent. Very full bodied and a right tasty brew.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 11, 2005
This poured a light but opaque brown with a creamy tan head. It’s got a floral hop aroma that dominates the sweet malt and plum and peach scents beneath. The spicing of this ale becomes more noticeable as you drink, neatly complementing the fruitful caramel taste. Solid, continual carbonation. The alcohol says its howdy in the finish and in the blood.
