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.

on tap - mcmenamin’s (philadelphia) - pours a ruby brown. aroma was not very pleasant- spices and sweaty feet (not good sweaty feet like some cheeses). Flavor was thin, mild, and slightly unpleasant. Not a favorite.

On tap, Pizza Port Strong Ale Fest. cquiroga is right, this is like anchor’s christmas release Belgian style. Slightly spicy. Too sugary and sweeter than I like it. Overall this is not my type of beer. Still, it is very nicely made.

Tap at the cockney Pub. Caramel, rotten fruits, malty. Brown-reddish colour. Small off-white head. Metallic, little alcoholic, fruity, a little bit bitter. Fills the mouth nicely. Smooth.

Prune brown pour with a light tannish head. Dark fruit aroma. Sugary dark fruit flavors. Odd finish.

750. Simple warming belgian. Heaving on the sweetness with some big fisted cardamom and fig. I did not eat much ’earthyness’ as others did. For my December buck I would stick with delirium noel.

Dark fruit flavor with a strange spice taste. Not an easy beer to swallow with its unique bite. Definitely not my favorite mix of malts and fruits in a beverage...

1.5L bottle. Thanks Martin90N for the nice Christmas present! Pours brown with a white head. Aroma of brown sugar, light caramel, and some sweet malts, fruit, some spice. Pleasant and well balanced.
