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.

bhensonb (14495) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 1, 2008
750 ml bottle. Aroma of medium dark fruit and caramel. Brilliant ruby color with a decent tan head. Full bodied with creamy carbonation. Starts with a bit of heat, followed by dark berry, strong caramel, and some bitter at all points. It’s got a spicy fresh impression. It’s dry and sweet all at once. Perhaps a bit woody in the end. The bottle claims to be full of sumptious, exciting contrasts. Right on.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2006 This is a real christmas-beer. Strong head and a magnificent golden colour. This beer is so inviting that you just need to smell and taste it. And you won´t be dissapointed. It smells and tastes just as good as it looks.
