COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Previous sold as: "Leffe Bière de Noël / Kerstbier"

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.

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.

33cl bottle at home. Appearance: clear dark amber with medium, frothy off-white head. Aroma: nutmeg, clove, banana, sweet malts. Taste: pretty high sweetness and medium bitterness. Notes of sweet malts, some caramel, ripe banana and some nutmeg. Palate: medium bodied, sticky texture and medium carbonation.

Pours a dark amber/red with an off white head. Aroma is banana, cinammon, sweet. Taste is very sweet up front, strong cinammon, sweetness carrying throughout, some banana, spice, ending with the typical belgian yeast aftertaste with more spice. Medium bodied, medium carbonation Fantastic! One of the better belgians I've had to this point!

Bottle. I like this. A lot of caramel with a hint of spice. A bit thin maybe but very quaffable. Far better than a standard leffe.

Derbeth (1127) - Kraków, POLAND - JAN 10, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2018 On tap. Ruby colour, frothy head with nice lacing. Aroma is red fruit, quite much alcohol. Too heavy and alcoholic.

Bouche ronde, malt doux, ensemble plutôt sucré, ça tire pas mal à en être écœurant sur la longueur. Elle reste festive, pas désagréable mais pas plus. Bouteille 25cl achetée en grande surface, Noisy-le-Grand, France, bue occasionnellement en saison.

tricksta_p (5351) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - DEC 29, 2017
Bottle from Speciaalbierpakket. Aroma is sweetish brown malt with caramel, spicy notes, yeast, coriander, brown sugar. Flavour is fairly sweet and light bitter. Body is medium. On the sweet side, but still a very decent Belgian dark ale, just one of many.

3.2
zacgillbanks (5656) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2017
Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. Bright dark amber coloured with a thin white head. It has a very rich plum, malty and candy sugar flavours followed by spices and warming dried fruit on the smooth finish. Good.

tmdaines (187) - Stretford, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2017
Good Belgian ale. The hints of fruit and spice do give it a Christmas feel. The large sharing bottles are perfect for the Christmas meal. Good frothy head on the poor, balance of malt and hops, and good depth of flavour for ABV.

TavernRogue (36) - Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2017
330ml bottle from Beer Hawk. Best served in a Trappiste style glass IMO. Appearance is of a bock or dark Belgian, very dark brown with a thin creamy head that retained surprisingly well. Aroma is brown sugar, spices, cinnamon and slight orange peel. Taste is more of the same. Lovely to sip although it's a bit one dimensional. The palate is ruined a bit by the CO2. Definitely the best of Leffe beers but nothing to shout about.

Fles gekocht in België, thuis geprobeerd met LiekevdV. Het is een roodbruin bier met een medium witte schuimkraag. Het heeft een kruidige geur. De smaak is moutig, caremelachtig en kruidig.

Bier gedronken met Inoven en JoepvW tijdens kerst. Het is een donkerrood bier met een fruitig en kruidige smaak.
