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.

CheesedMan (555) - Saint Cloud, Florida, USA - APR 5, 2008
Cork indicates an 04 bottling. Pours a ruddy brown color with a significant head, that eases into a thin blanket. The aroma is sweet and spicy. A plethora of sweet cherries, figs, cardamom, quince, caramel and toffee assault the senses. The flavor is warming and sweet, with a dark fruit component on the fore, and a slight alcohol warmth on the aft. This beer has held up nicely, making me long for December.

bikesandbeers (547) - san diego, California, USA - JAN 23, 2006
On tap @ Kafe Belgie, Utrecht. Dark borwn with hints of red under a large tan head. Didn’t pick up much in the nose, but I had a cold. Flavor is slightly fruity and not too sweet. Alcohol is present, but not too strong. Medium bodied with lots of carbonation. Would love to try this again.

adster (542) - HUNGARY - AUG 9, 2014
Elegáns, rubinvörös színét vastag, gyorsan fejlődő habkorona takarja, mely minden mozdulatot követően csipkés bevonatot hagy a pohár falán. Illata különleges, ánizsos, a Gouden Carolus Christmasnél megismert illatokat idéző, melyek egy elnyúló, élesztős alapon állnak, valamint egy mézben áztatott mogyorós-diós lepelbe vannak burkolva. Íze legalább ennyire sokrétű, ebben a főszerepet szintén a kissé mentolos, medvecukros zamatok játsszák, ezt színesíti egy grillázsszerű, kissé lágyabb aroma, majd egy visszafogottan kesernyés, stílusos zárás következik. Mindez egy közepes testű és szénsavtartalmú ital képében, mely egyébként remekül megkomponált és megnyugtatóan tökéletes ünnepi nedű.

Cold 750ml corked bottle: Pours a hazy medium amber color with a large sized foamy head that slowly dissolves. Aroma and taste include: sweet & roasted malts, caramel, spice, light bitterness and fruit notes. Starts and ends sweetly. Smooth, full bodied, and well carbonated.

Kosmokrator (517) - ITALY - FEB 25, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2014 Bottiglia 2012: Limpido color ambrato con riflessi rubino in controluce, massiccio cappello di soffice schiuma beige molto persistente. Aroma intenso e dolce con immeditati sentori di frutta matura e sciroppata ed in un secondo momento emergono sentori di zucchero caramellato e cannella; sembra di annusare una crostata casereccia. Gusto dolce, rotondo, fruttato e caramellato con note di toffee e spezie molto intense, sul finale compaiono liquirizia, scorza di agrumi ed un pizzico di luppolo. Corpo medio-abbondante, effervescenza gentile, struttura vellutata e setosa. Ottima birra natalizia, 100% belga, dolce ma non stucchevole e con un pizzico di personalitŕ!
