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.

Koelschtrinker (20398) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 17, 2011
Verhaltener, später deutlicherer Malzantrunk, in dem süße und verbrannte Malznoten zu gleichen Teilen enthalten sind. Nach diesem durchaus angenehmen Antrunk stagniert das Bier und ruht sich auf der süßlichen Malzigkeit aus. Wenig getreidig, auch der Alkohol ist ganz leicht spürbar. Getürbt wird das bisher positive Bild durch den trockenen und leicht bitteren Abgang, der nicht zu der vorher herrschenden Süße passenden will. Solide! 9/11/11/11/8/11

rlgk (18850) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 20, 2010
Draught at Belgobaren, Stockholm. Amber color, nice lasting offwhite head. Malty caramel aroma, fruity, apples, sourish notes, grapes and some toffee notes. Fruity flavor, bready, some grapes, some yeast, some hops.

harrisoni (18578) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2010
Bottle at post pre ZBF, bought at an all night shop in Bruges. Some cardboard on aroma, some fruit in mouth. Not particularly great, but just about ok.

TBone (17530) - Pori, FINLAND - JAN 14, 2012
Bottled 330ml (BZ, BB 09/2012)
Deep ruby color, good off-white, cloudy head, lace. Aroma is woody, grassy, a bit papery and with notes of alcohol. Medium-bodied. Malty, semi-sweet with berryish notes, hops, grass and some nuttyness too. Typical Leffe: "ok" but not very exciting Belgian Xmas brew.

yngwie (17053) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 11, 2010
Bottle. It’s a clear, copper-colored beer topped by a beige head. Dried fruits and some alcohol on the nose. Full-bodied and nicely carbonated. Sweet, caramel flavor with a balancing bitterness. Dreid fruits and dark sugars too. Bitter finish with roast malts and sweetness. Overall, a nice beer considering it’s brewer, but it’s too anonymous to be really good. Rating: 6-3-6-4-13-3.2. 100326

Bottle. A clear, dark amber to brown beer with a minimal beige head. Dried fruits, raisins and figs, with brown sugar and caramel. Some alcohol notes. It’s full-bodied and slightly warming, too sugary, but quite well-tasting. Slightly roasted, some spiced notes and also some caramel and a good dash of dried fruits. But too sweet. Sweet finish with dried fruits, alcohol notes and brown sugar. A nice beer indeed, but a bit on the sweet side. The aroma is definately the best of it. 100711

Dedollewaitor (16158) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 26, 2008
33cl bottle. Pours brown with a red hew and a creamy head and lacings. Sweet and spicy. Caramel, yeast, cinnamon, clove & alcohol. Medium bodied. Smooth mouthfeel. Very decent and harmless.

FatPhil (16102) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 18, 2011
330ml bottle (?, Brussels)
6 Sweet bananabread aroma, some butter on that.
4 Rich red, self-supporting tight head.
6 Cakey, caramelly and buttery. Not bad at all. Maybe a touch sweet, but forgivable for a christmas beer.
3 Sweet sugary palate, pleasant carbonation. Very simple sweet finish with some cut mixed peel and very emasculated hops.
12 Lacking real character, but certainly not actually bad in any way. As a mass-produced product, this actually good.

Benzai (15606) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 15, 2012
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.
