Une fois n’est pas coutume, une bière de Noël en plein mois de Mai, et une Leffe s’il vous plait (pas franchement ma brasserie Belge préférée sachant qu’en plus celle-ci est brassée POUR Leffe hein...) ! Belle versée rousse/ambrée très sombre, avec des reflets de grenats et une légère mousse ivoire. Nez de Noël : sucres de malt, caramel, poivre, vanille, cassonade, noix, girofle, un peu de banane, de pêche, de châtaigne, de bois de cèdre, de pruneau, de sirop d’érable, d’ananas... C’est sympathique, gourmand, et invite à la dégustation... Carbonatation moyenne, texture ronde, du corps, alcool au niveau, amertume très légère (c’est une bière de Noël hein...). Les levures sont nettes, elles ne traînent pas dans la rue sous les flocons. Les sucres sont très présents avec un bon tapissage du palet (une marque de fabrique de Leffe d’ailleurs), les notes de noix sont agréables, la longueur moyenne et le final un peu mince sur les malts, les notes végétales et bien sûr les épices qui donnent tout le peps à cette bière. Une bière de Noël très honnête, sans fioriture et qui conviendra à tout bon buveur de bière. Bouteille 75cl, supermarché X.

Bottle from saveur-biere.com advent calendar. Nose is overripe banana, floral. Palate is grapes, malty, hoppy aftertaste. Decent.

Bouteille 25cl. Arômes de cannelle et d’épices. Un peu trop chimique à mon goût.

Evilman (222) - Taverny, FRANCE - JAN 21, 2017
A decent drink, but I obviously expected more to be honest. I really like some of Leffe products, this one was pleasant but I had too high expectations I guess. Christmas beer means Bush de Noel or Samischlaus to me, strong beers, almost whine-like. This one is way softer, but still different enough to worth a try. A nice clove aroma, with a hint of cinnamon, nothing impressive but cool enough to be APPROVED BY TAVERNY’S BLACK METAL CREW!

Gurthnar (5717) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JAN 21, 2017
Bottle. Oxidized both in aroma and flavour, which is a very unpleasant surprise in macrobeer like this. Other than that there is moderate sweetness, moderate bitterness, a balanced beer. Mostly malt centered with caramelly toasted character. Also quite light spiciness, cinnamom, star anise. Good except for the oxidation.

Myonlyvice (279) - DENMARK - JAN 18, 2017
Reddish brown with a big head. Some lacing. Malty with quite a bit of ripe fruit and sweet spice. Balances on the sweet side but is still easy to drink ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GuideDogSaint (1339) - Xiamen, CHINA - JAN 16, 2017
330ml bottle at House of Belgium, Xiamen. Pours clear ruby with a thin white head. Aroma of malt with Belgian yeast. Sweetish finish. Typical Leffe, a hint of metal, but ok.

I liked this life beer. As a Christmas beer it is well balanced, nothing too spivey. Warm alcohol, sweet mouthfeel, it’s a Stella type InBev tried and tested formula. Has it’s place in the seasonal shelf.

God belgisk juleøl- Tilpas med søde. Flot gylden farve og skum. Lidt for frugtagtig i smagen,

Garrold (5065) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2017
Bottle. Archer Road Beer Stop, Sheffield. Clear, chestnut brown. Thick, foamy, lasting, lacing, beige head. Good looker. Nose has bread yeast. Cocktail cherries. Hint of cinnamon. Some caramel. Taste is fairly sweet first off, with a burnt sugar bitterness. Decent mouthfeel. Foamy and smooth. Burnt cinnamon finish. Not bad.
