One of my favorite Leffe variants. Introduced to me in 2012 in Belgium - in the U.S. we only find blond & brune. Nice one around the holidays with a pretty good overall balance on all fronts, but enough holiday spice to get you in the spirit. spacecube (1732) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2015
330ml bottle, pours dark amber reddish brown with a foamy off white head. Aroma is caramel malt, cherries, light spice. Medium body with creamy oily texture, fine lasting carbonation. Finish is well balance, lightly bitter with cherry aftertaste. Pleasant stuff! holdleder (373) - Kongerslev, DENMARK - FEB 7, 2016

Bottled from Carrefour in Genk, Deep warm ruby-orange color, fruity vanilla cinammon nose with thin tan head. Aroma is fruits (dark berries ?), cinammon, vanilla. Flavour is very apparent with bitter orange, vanilla, cinammon. Not a heavweight, medium carbonation flattens it. Nicely composed beer.

Bottled 33cl. Courtesy of kappldav123. Appearance: It pours a beautiful clear ruby beer with a nicely lasting creamy beige head. Nice lacework. Aroma: Inviting, smooth, subtle and very christmassy. Yeast accentuated, sweet with hints of cherry, molasses, candy sugar, fennel, nutmeg, quite a lot of fudge, cinnamon, tobacco, stuffy sitting room, coconut and coriander. Pleasant. Flavor and palate: Low carbonation. Sweet and very smooth. Medium bodied. Very drinkable. Extremely low bitterness. Yeast driven. Rather interesting. Caramel, cinnamon, walnuts, tobacco, nutmeg and fennel showing up. Sweet yeasty finish with which is reminiscent of marmite and arabic gum. Overall impression: Better than I expected. Thanks kappldav123! bhensonb (15338) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 17, 2009
Bottle at Taverne ’t Botteltje in Oostend. As Leffe Kerstbier. Pours orange brown with a good beige head. Something of an evergreen aroma. Medium body with very frothy carbonation. Flavor is roast caramel with some evergreen note and some xmas type spice. But not overstated. Drinks better than many Leffes. Zita (6325) - Assentoft, DENMARK - SEP 9, 2010
light malty,cookie and nutty aroma,red/brown, light brown foam, light sweetness, lightly bitter, medium body, soft carbonation, long finish, prawlie (1611) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2011
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. holdan (260) - USA - NOV 29, 2011
Ruby with nice foamy head. Aroma weak on the nose, but can trace some sweet fruit, malt. Taste sweet fruit, candymalt, some bitter hops, and yet quit neutral, almost watery. Medium body, smooth. Easy and drinkable but could use some more character/alcohol.
