3 x 330 ml horizontal tasting Bière de Noël - 9° - Ruby
Bière De Noël: pours clear amber. bland bland aroma with a bit of spice, not different from the blonde. Smells bad. Medoum body, low carbonation, small touch of spice. No taste. Really, no taste. 1/5
9°: pours blond to yellow, thin fizzy head. Light honey & malt aromas (but had to smell my nose off). Sweet body all the way through the end. Light malty taste. Mèh. 1.9/5
Ruby: pours light red with an amber hue. Aroma... f*** - groce: artificial cherry bubblegum. Sweet body but - pasteurised and filtered like hell - render it sweet/sour in a weirdly and groce way. Taste is rosewater. Bad rosewater. Aftertaste is sticky gum. 0.5/5

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a red / brown / purple with a thin off white head. Aroma is floor polish, dust, spice, some dark fruits and screamed hotdog to me. Which isn’t a smell I would request a beer to taste of. Hmm, well it’s ok but needs more aroma of hotdog. Not going to happen. A slightly spicier, less metallic version of the brune. Average, which is an improvement for Leffe.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
33 cL bottle from Beers of Europe. Looks the part when poured into a Leffe glass, dark brown with a good head but not too much of a gusher. Typical Leffe aroma, nice and mild, though not highly distinctive. Tastes like a brown coloured Leffe Blond, and is somewhat disappointing. Smooth slightly bitter beer. Not as good as Leffe Bruin, and a bit of style over substance.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Dark red with laced white head. Nose and flavour of dried fruit, caramel and alcohol. A tinny finish that lingers. It’s rough all round. I didn’t expect much from this one.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Donker bruin bier met gemiddeld schuim. Smaak is minder aanwezig dan de dubbel, lichter en minder rook en iets zoeter en ook iets meer fruit. Smakelijk bier, blijft echter niet lang hangen.

From Uvinum. In La Trappe chalice. Playing Mutant Mudds. Pleasant but a bit watery and a bit more sweet than desiderable. In any case, it can be drinked without much effort
