COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With its amber color, fruity and spicy bouquet, and its creamy foam, Leffe Biere de Noel is a beer full of character. Very expected during the holiday season, it continues the tradition of master brewers who kept their best barley and hops to brew once a year. Leffe Biere de Noel makes your aperitif a moment of intense flavor.

jmgreenuk (9855) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - DEC 16, 2012
Bottle at the Essen Christmas Beer Festival. Poured a clear medium brown colour with a thick bubbly tan head. The aroma is of malt and yeast. The flavour is weak bitter and malty. The palate doesn't exist and the beer lacks body. A poor Xmas beer.

ClubGonzo (5685) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 15, 2012
Bottle, courtesy of StoreMy - thanks man! :-) Pours a deep clear coppery amber body with a medium creamy off-white head. Nose is overripe fruit, raisins, caramel and hints of dates and Belgian ale yeast. Taste is caramel, Belgian ale yeast (more pronounced), mellow dark fruits and sweet marzipan-like hints in the back. Some bitter burnt sugar tones in the finish, which provides a certain balance to the whole affair. Medium to full body, moderate to high carbonation. Not a bad Christmas beer at all from Leffe.

UPDATED: DEC 16, 2012 Sampled at OBER Kerstbierfestival 2012. Clear dark amber to red-brown color, small off-white head. Smell malts and grains, lightly sweet. Tastes the same: malts, grains, sweetness. Ok body, medium carbonation.

ReV2 (178) - Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2012
Deep, off white head, brown colour, perfumey aroma, sweet with a little spice. I’d be guessing but they seem to blend well together. A better than average offering from the Leffe stable, a good Christmas beer at the right strength. I like it.

Japalo (1887) - DENMARK - DEC 11, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2014 [email protected] Light clear brown. Small head. Spicy peppery aroma. Quite dry with medium sweetness. Fine brew. Rerated 11/12-14 with a serious cold. One finger foam. Copper. Maybe at bit onedimensional.

karlsnes (47) - NORWAY - DEC 7, 2012
Uts: mørk rav, rikelig beige skum. Duft: mye belgisk gjær og krydder, hint av humle. Smak: middels fyldig, søt, god balanse mellom malt og mild humle. Noe stram og bitter ettersmak. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours dark copper with light copper coloured head. Malty aroma. Fairly hoppy, full-bodied flavour. Pleasant christmas beer

3.1
JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 1, 2012
Bottle, 33 cl. Clear mahagony red with a frothy decent off-white head leaving a a little lacework. Smells like a Leffe, eg. dried fruity and yeasty. A little nutty to. Taste is sweet dried fruit, caramel, light citrus and a subdued bitterness. Peppery finish, but otherwise not that spicey for a Belgian X-mas offering. Better than most other Leffe offerings, still not very interesting.

auderale (605) - Minot, North Dakota, USA - NOV 25, 2012
33 cl bottle. Amber colored pour with medium sized head. Fruity, caramel, toffee and cherry aroma. Light sweet, malty, pleasant fruity finish. I enjoyed this. I can drink a lot of these this holiday season.
