3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear ruby beer, a tad sweeter and not as strong as the typical Christmas beer. Hints of sweet caramel and anise.
33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ van Rooij, Culemborg.
Clear brown with a white head. Malty, red fruit aroma with some spices. Typical sweet, rotted fruit taste most Leffe beers have. Not as bad as it sounds but something is off here. GoDarkOrGoHome (86) - - FEB 23, 2018
Unashamedly biased towards cinnamon and the accompanying spice that is featured in many winter themed beers and this comes with a deep amber colour and a texture that is thick without feeling heavy. I can't wait until next winter to sample this again. rascotty (25) - - FEB 11, 2018

Pours a dark amber/red with an off white head. Aroma is banana, cinammon, sweet. Taste is very sweet up front, strong cinammon, sweetness carrying throughout, some banana, spice, ending with the typical belgian yeast aftertaste with more spice. Medium bodied, medium carbonation Fantastic! One of the better belgians I've had to this point! Smithld1 (395) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2018
Bottle. I like this. A lot of caramel with a hint of spice. A bit thin maybe but very quaffable. Far better than a standard leffe. Derbeth (1191) - Kraków, POLAND - JAN 10, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2018 On tap. Ruby colour, frothy head with nice lacing. Aroma is red fruit, quite much alcohol. Too heavy and alcoholic. bewyder (565) - FRANCE - JAN 6, 2018
Bouche ronde, malt doux, ensemble plutôt sucré, ça tire pas mal à en être écœurant sur la longueur. Elle reste festive, pas désagréable mais pas plus. Bouteille 25cl achetée en grande surface, Noisy-le-Grand, France, bue occasionnellement en saison. tricksta_p (5560) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - DEC 29, 2017
Bottle from Speciaalbierpakket. Aroma is sweetish brown malt with caramel, spicy notes, yeast, coriander, brown sugar. Flavour is fairly sweet and light bitter. Body is medium. On the sweet side, but still a very decent Belgian dark ale, just one of many.
