Tired of talking my friends into pit stops at beer bars before heading “out” - in fear of having to drink bland lager all night - I set out to craft an ale that would act as companion throughout the evening. Leon is assertively hopped and fermented dry using champagne yeast. The yeast and the hops in combination with a simple malt bill provides the beer with a quality of being rich in taste yet refreshing.

djoeye (3444) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 28, 2015
Look; pop n smoke, off white head, hazy dark amber body, thick lacing. Aroma; fruity, pine forest, citric peels, mild roasted malts. Taste; hops, bitter, citric peels, but also a good fruitiness with forest berries balancing it all and leading to a malty hoppy finish. Feels fresh n good. Overall; tasty fruity fresh. Also my beautiful wife liked it. [75cl corked bottle, abv6.5%, B@Systembolaget]

Some funk yeast, in the aroma.. Nice clear golden beer. A typical Belgian taste, very well balanced and refreshing beer, easy to drink. Dry and not oily mouth feel .. Time for another sip

Almost perfect. Yeast just takes the edge of the sharpness which I normally go for but everything else is there in spades, taste, aroma, fizz. A keeper.
