En belgisk juleøl der ikke smager som de fleste danske juleøl. Den har en høj sødme, og en lav bitterhed. Stor fylde og en belgisk smag af gær. Sigmund (8020) - Tau, NORWAY - NOV 7, 2013
330 ml bottle, soon available at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 6.6%. Beautiful clear reddish brown colour, large off-white head. Pleasant aroma of malts, caramel, brown kandij sugar and mild Christmas spices. Relatively light bodied for its strength and style. The flavour is not as sweet as I feared, but has otherwise the same elements as the aroma. Mild spices and very moderate hops in the finish. Please disregard that it is brewed by the biggest brewery corporation in the world - this is a good beer! PapaCanard (187) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 26, 2015
Magnifique bouteille de 0.75 litre et magnifique bière brun-rouge avec p eu de mousse. Puissant arôme de clou de girofle qui peut déranger les palais non avertis. Reste de caramel après déglutition. Une bombe de Noël. ralphdot (1093) - Billingham, Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2011

Nice, complicated aroma, nice full taste with the typical leffe twist. A little bit smokey. Nice, dark red color. Aftertaste stays on the palate for a while.
Lekker, gecompliceerd aroma. Goede volle smaak, met de typerische leffe twist. Beetje rokerig. Mooie donkere kleur. Nasmaak blijft goed op het gehemelte hangen. SilkTork (5921) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2013

Jan, 2013 Keg at Brasserie Henri in Sisteron, France. Perfect day. A stunning drive through the French Alps on a crisp sunny winter morning, stopping for lunch in Brasserie Henri overlooking the town square. Leffe Noel on tap. It doesn't get much better than this. The beer is a tasty dark Leffe with more raison fruit and a spicy malt flavour. [3.4]
Sept, 2017 330ml dark bottle, filtered, from Beers Of Europe. Reduced because it's out of date. I think I should buy up the rest of their stock because I simply love this.* This is 100% my sort of beer. Malt driven, and bags of flavour. I love it. I want it to be Christmas every day so I can drink this all year round. Yummy. [4.5] *Oh no, I just checked, it was their last one! :-(

Fra flaske på DSJT, Cardinal nov-13: Det sitter langt inne å innrømme det, men selv de aller største industribryggeriene kan levere juveler hvis de vil. Dette er virkelig julesnop som alle bør prøve. Vellykket etter alle parametre: utseende, aroma, smak, munnfylde og ettersmak. Kveldens store overraskelse. I_LUV_BEER (232) - - NOV 3, 2016
Served in a tulip from a 330ml bottle. Pours dark chestnut brown with a medium beige head. Aroma is bread, yeast, molasses and red fruits. Taste is molasses, bread, yeast, bitter-sweet with sweet finish. Full body with lively carbonation. Rich, smooth and warming beer, just perfect for a cold winter evening.
