COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer has a generous head - compact and firm. Its slightly brown colour is the result of the roasted barley. It has a dark ruby brown colour and a very intense aroma. The aromatic herbs and spices used greatly enhance its delicious smell. This beer is full-bodied with a smoothness that is the result of the synergy of caramelized malts, carefully controlled fermentation and long cold storage. St Feuillien Cuvée de Noël has a very subtle bitterness that is the dominant flavour in this harmonious ale that strikes a perfect balance between all the different ingredients.

VINTAGE 2004. Two years old. More fullbodied if you can imagine that. The alcoholic taste can you still find, but it’s more friendly.

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - DEC 27, 2006
Stuff has a murky amber color with a fading tan head. Tart & fruity aroma with underlying sweetness. Slightly musty with berry hints. Signs of oxidation, belgian buttery malts and a toffee hint. The flavor is similiar with some tart fruity notes upfront of berries, plummy notes, green grapes, caramel apples. Some dark fruits as well, especially figs with a later toffeeish finish. Pretty good, but not exceptional.

alexanderj (3577) - Branson, Missouri, USA - DEC 27, 2006
Color was a hazy ruby/brown; with a medium white head. Aroma was yeast, plum, fruit and spice. Taste was much of the same, with some candy sugar. Pretty good warming finish.

Dark amber. The nose is sweet with some licorice and caramel. Toffee and alcohol up front with a slightly dry finish. Warming sensation. Nice.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - DEC 25, 2006
Dark ruby beer, with a big white/beige foam. The aroma is spicy and yeasty. Notes of spices and grass in the flavour, that is not overly sweet. The finish has some bitterness that lingers in your mouth. Balanced, complex and warming. A really good Christmas beer.

skoisirius (1908) - Earth, Washington, USA - DEC 25, 2006
750 ml bottle into a Tulip glass. Pours a deep mahogany brown with orangey hints. An off white thick head tops this one. Aroma of deep sweet malts and plums with Belgian candied sugar tossed in the bunch. The flavor begins with an almost overly sweet malt blast which moves into a figgy and plum filled body, ending on somewhat of a bittered apple note. The apples definitely come out more as this warms. In the finish comes a tiny bit of an alcohol singe, but its very well built into the beer. Another very enjoyable brew from St. Feuillien!!

Pours deep mahogany into t tulip. Tan head quickly recedes to skim rim. Dark caramel and alcohol aromas. Dry with a lasting sweet caramel finish.

yespr (41898) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2006
75 cL bottle. Pours brown with light brown and creamy head. Fruity and caramel smell with alcohol elements. Sweet taste with aroma hops that gives taste of fruit together with malts that provides darker roasted like notes. Caramel taste too. Round and well balanced into the aftertaste. Very drinkable beer. Well suited for the wide audience as a good belgian x-mas beer experience.

Dark brown. Pretty good. Strong, but doesn’t taste nearly as strong as it actually is. Very malty.
