look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Pours a fizzy malty body with caramel head, which slims down rapidly to a thin filmy top in true leffe form.

The Aroma is malty caramel and is pretty pleasant, although not as rich as a typical Belgian Christmas Brew.

Taste is good, as per aroma, with a sweetness which suits.

Feel is definitely on the watery side, and a touch too much effervescence for this to be a contender.

Overall it is good, in the way a standard Leffe Blonde is good, not up to the standard for a Belgian Noël, and not as good as Radieuse, Rituel or Tripel from this brewery.

L - dark bronze with white Lacy head that dissipates quickly
S & T - watery, light malty sweetness, very light bread yeasty, nutmeg
F - bit watery

O - did not like it that much. Very understated aroma and watery quality. This makes it very drinkable, but makes me not really *want* to drink it very much... Try Gouden Carolus Noel for an (in my opinion) way better version of a christmas ale.

I don't recommend this one.

Poured from a bottle glass bought at Carrefour in Brussels.
-Very dark colour. Very opaque. A finger of foam.
-The smell reminds me of the Hefeweizen but less strong.
-The taste is very good.
-The feel is nice.
Overall, a beer worth a try if you're in the session.

From Uvinum. In La Trappe chalice. Playing Mutant Mudds. Pleasant but a bit watery and a bit more sweet than desiderable. In any case, it can be drinked without much effort

Draught: This one pours a ruby tinged mahogany color. There was a bit of an off white head that lingered and left some lacing. The nose was nice. Notes of cinnamon, toffee, caramel, some yeastiness and some dark fruits. The taste was also good. A bit of cinnamon and other spices, but not overly done. Nice malt body, with notes of toffee, caramel, dark fruits and some yeastiness. A decent brew!
