COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

heavy (2736) - Split, CROATIA - JUL 19, 2016
Jun ’16. A 0.75 l bottle, corked&waxed, as Baladin Leön. Obviously a palindrome of Nöel, clever. It poured hazy dark rusty brown body with quite a big and creamy head that dampened the aroma initially. It showed dark dried fruits, some spices, weaker anyway. Flavor was lightly sweet, dark dried fruits, strong chocolate note, caramel, grainy, bread, pepper (brewer’s signature I guess) wood, some perfumey spice. Pretty complex with notable alcohol that didn’t bother though, I understood it as a part of its Christmas character. Full bodied with long, lightly bitter (both grainy and alcohol bite) and sweet dried fruit finish. Quite nice Noël.

Comment: En fűt au Saint-Bock finale Euro 2016.
Portrait: Sous le nom de Leön (Noël ŕ l’envers). Un nez de chocolat au caramel épicé. Une touche d’épices de Noël. Une bouche mince avec des saveurs simples d’épices. Facile et agréable, pour amateurs d’épices.

Rossa abbastanza scura con riflessi caramello, schiuma beige poco persistente. Aroma di banana matura, lievito belga, datteri, leggerissime note di ciliegia, rum e cacao. Al palato sempre banana, lievito belga, note di rum, e ciliegia sotto spirito, coda amaricante erbacea mista a cacao. Corpo medio-pieno, poco carbonata, texture oleosa.

Ippopodio (134) - ITALY - JAN 3, 2016
Bruna e calda con una invitante schiuma nocciola. I sentori al naso sono di frutta secca e cioccolata. In bocca è morbida e il calore alcolico ben celato dai sentori speziati. Il finale è secco di liquirizia.
