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.

Copper brown body and yellowish kaki head. Lots of spices, cinnamon, red apple, clove and sweet crusty bread. Lively carbonation, sweet start but more roasted malts and bitterness later on. Warming body, ending not too long but rich in flavour. Very refined and just enough spice. Tasty for for sure, although it could even be richer. (33cl bottle from Cave Gambrinus)

A large crevesa! Elaborate, complex, with a great evolution in the glass with a marvelous journey in the mouth. A beer made with great professionalism honest.

Pours a brown color with coppery undertone, topped with a beige colored head. Malty aroma, caramel, some fruity notes (dark and gentle), slight yeasty feel. Taste is malty, sweet with some caramel. A bit yeasty and some final bitterness. Highly carbonated and some presence of alcohol. Strong one.

TorbenJensen (784) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 15, 2015
The Belgian St. Feuillien may not be the best Christmas beer, but its alcohol of 9%, compiled with the large bottle of 75 cl. and again summed up the most often available at reasonable cost, making it an attractive Christmas beer that I can really only recommend. It has rich caramel, tingling alcohol, sweet fruit notes and a comfortable hoppy bitterness. Easy to drink, very intoxicating and pleasing to the eye.

jamaty (1329) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 10, 2015
Bonito color de vino rosado tirando a cereza y bastante transparente. Espuma muy consistente y cremosa. Aroma a frutas rojas y caramelo. Muy rica en la boca, con caramelo, uvas, canela, especias… Buena carbonatación y cuerpo medio. Muy bebible y agradable, pese al alcohol, que no obstante está ahí… calentando el conjunto. Muy sabrosa.

Butelka, warka do 14-08-2016. Brazowo-czerwonawe, opalizujace, z bardzo wysoka piana, powoli opadajaca i zostajaca bialawa, cienka warstewka az do konca. Aromaty slodowe, owocowe (zwlaszcza owocowe, i to nie tylko typowe owoce dla BDSA jak sliwki, figi, rodzynki, ale rowniez maliny? wisnie?), przyprawowe, zbozowe, karmelowe. Czasami tez belgijskie drozdze, choc tylko w tle. Nieco winne aromaty tez chwilami. Smak dosc analogiczny - przy czym od innych swiatecznych w charakterze piw rozni je duzo mniejsza przyprawowosc a duzo wyzsza owocowosc. W ustach pozostaja mocno slodkie i slabsze kwaskowato-owocowe posmaki. Goryczka - przyprawowa - dosc wysoka jak na styl. Wysycenie srednie. Alkohol dobrze ukryty. Niemalo ciala. W ustach nieco lepkie, syropowe. Bardzo dobre, bardzo zlozone, ladnie ulozone.
