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.

Dark amber colour, off white head. Aroma is sweet malt, some cherry and dark fruit, creamy, some esters. Taste has subtle spice, cinnamon, clove, raisins, cream. I don’t think this is too bad, just like all other leffe beers. Nice Xmas beer to be fair.

Clear red brown, off white head. Not much aroma. Taste had some winter spices. Not a good body, high carbo.

sic1314 (4775) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - AUG 25, 2012
Pours dark with a loose and rapidly disappearing head. Deep fruity nose of cherries and spices. Not quite as heavy a mouthfeel as I would have expected, more laid back in the fruit flavours, a hit of malt. Slightly dry aftertaste. At least it’s not like liquid christmas pudding.

Idiosynkrasie (6981) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 1, 2012
330ml bottle. Clear deep dark red with average frothy to creamy, moderately lacing off-white head. Fruity and slightly spicy aroma has notes of cherry, coriander, a touch of clove, a dry to soapy hop overtone. Taste is initially dark malty with an upflashing touch of cherry, slightly soapy hop note, becomes later earthy and minimally spicy. Unbalanced.

Hazy brown beer, good off white head. Fairly neutral palate. Palate is slightly soft. Sweetish malt - creamy. Nice fruity undertone - cherry dominant. Finishes semi dry and malty. Not bad for a Xmas beer!

KoNrRiI (1374) - Århus, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2012
0.33 bottle. Aroma seems to be rather equally divided between hops and malts, some christmas-like spicy additions in the background along with a delicate alcoholic scent and a subtle. Dark scarlet color and a small off-white head of very poor retention. Taste is pretty pleasant, sweet and malty, not very intricate. The beer has medium body and a fine creamy feel, however carbonation is somewhat to lively for this kind of beer which I feel should be enjoyed with family or a group of friends on a cold afternoon by a fireplace. The aftertaste is short and sweet, does not leave any sour or bitter residues. Overall it is a fine beer, very well suited for winter, quite drinkable for its kind and not overly sweet.

Lowenbrau (3858) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - JUN 1, 2012
330ml bottle. Sweet berries aromas, some nuts. Pours hazy amber-ruby colour, with vanishing head, leaving some lacework. Medium body and average carbonation. Taste is berries, some spicy and malty. As it warms alcohol gets dominant. Enjoyable.

kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 28, 2012
Die Schaumkrone hält mittelmäßig, Farbe ist rötlich-bräunlich. Geschmacklich fruchtig leicht Alkoholisch, etwas süß, säuerlich. Fazit: Schon gut und lecker, aber für einen Belgier und ein Weihnachtsbier eher unspektakulär. Test vom 27.3.2009, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 9,10,9,10,11,10 - 9,80

It’s really too long ago since I drank this beer to remember all details. All I know that I drank it eating pizza and the taste was just perfect. However nothing special with this beer.
