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.

Ritzn (1040) - Bavaria, GERMANY - MAR 12, 2017
Murky brown with medium brown head. Aroma is christmas spices, raisins, quince, figs, slightly burnt caramel, phenols, quadrupel stuff. Taste is intense bitter phenols and spicy yeasty stuff, some fig sweetness. The late bitter stuff ruins it a bit. Wild yeasts gone wild here.

Best Xmas beer I’ve ever had. Not one of those syrupy sugar bombs like most xmas brews. This beer has class. Beautiful spiced mulled aromas that are truely unique: clove, ginger, dates but also candied citrus. Great stuff

caribou43 (843) - Lausanne, SWITZERLAND - FEB 4, 2017
I bought this bottle at amstein and I drank it in family yesterday in Lausanne. In my opinion, it is a pleasant beer. The color is brown and orange, brown and white foam. The carbonation is average. The taste is sweet, malty, bready, good notes of apricot candy sugar, some hop. For a Christmas edition, there is maybe a lack of ginger bread, good one.

BenL8 (124) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 27, 2017
Nice Belgian Christmas ale but slightly overrated. Aroma is very sweet and sugary. Taste is sweet and Belgian (candi sugar). Finish is very nice, sweet, bitter and loads of toffee. Average Belgian with a very nice finish.
