Aroma initially characterized by pepper that fight in a field ruled by a rich fruity fragrance of dried fruits with ripen banana, toffee and a soft sweet chocolate fragrance. The attentive taster shouldn’t miss a sharp floral of rose and a sensation of must of wine always pleasant.

Barwa: głęboko miedziana / jasno brązowa, wyraźnie zmętniona. Piana koloru kremowego, drobno pęcherzykowa, średniej wielkości, szybko opadająca i utrzymująca się jedynie na ściankach. Wysycenie niskie. Aromat: czekolada, owoce (morele) oraz wyraźna nuta alkoholowa. Mimo tego bardzo przyjemny. Smak: słodycz, czekolada, niewielka kwaskowość, alkohol i ciemne owoce.

Eu bebi a versão Leön. Muito boa! Características muito parecidas com a Rochefort 8, porém com espuma de menor persistência.

Finn (4642) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2014
Flaske 0,75l fra Vinmonopolet, bestillingsutvalget. Baladin Leön. Drukket på ølseminar i Tårnrommet 13 Nov 13. Skikkelig kork-kork. Her måtte det korketrekker til. Åpnet med et smell. Dyp mørkebrun. OK kremaktig skum. Uklar. Litt lacing. Aroma av rosiner. Smaken fyldig. Rosiner & svisker. Bra - men litt for søt.

Draught at The Beer Trappe. Red in color. Taste is cherry and dried fruit. Almost feeling of drinking a sour red, but it’s not. Fruity citrus finish.

Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Pours a deep clear copper-hued amber body. Aroma is caramel, dark sugars, raisins, mild chocolate and hints of clove and nuts. Taste is dark sugars, raisins, nuts, figs, nougat and hints of milk chocolate and straw. Medium to full body, medium carbonation. Very nice Belgian Strong Ale, and good enough to dedicate to my son (Leon). Here’s to you son! :-)
