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.

Lukasmh (780) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2015
Bottle. Pours all hazy intense orange with beautiful white head. Aroma is grainy saison, citrus, zesty, yeast, hops, some bready malt, peach and slight bubblegum. Taste starts sweet with peach and turns more citrusy. Orange zest, yeast, dry hops and malty background. Finish has citrusy hops, dry and some grass. Aromatic finish too. Smooth and mellow mouthfeel.

Vestergaard (1295) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2015
75cl bottle! Pours really hazy peach amber with a bog, white head. Aroma has lots of dry belgian yeast character, funk, dry citrus peel, hops, pale malts. Taste is mellow but tasty. Fairly sweet and fruity, some citrus, slight funky and hoppy dry finish, but overall very smooth.

gegwilson (2546) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2015
Bottle in the Buxton Tap House. Hazy golden with a big off white head. Sour citrus aroma. The taste is citrus and yeasty with moderate spice and bready notes. Some caramel too. Really refreshing and very good.

anstei (645) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAY 21, 2015
75cl bottle. Pours slightly cloudy amber, lots of unstable foam. Hoppy nose for a Belgian Ale - This could also be an IPA.

JimmyBoy74 (494) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAY 17, 2015
75 cl systembolaget. En öl jag hade riktigt stora förväntningar på. Men det blir ingen fullpoängare. Smakar en del belgojäst och ölen tar sig men inte mer.

minutemat (3276) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2015
330ml bottle from Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours hazy gold with exuberant white head. Aroma is sweet with light marzipan. Taste is soft, doughy, sweet, wit-like with an interesting yeast influence. Rich, slightly boozy and stronger-tasting than 6.5%.

mkel07 (4669) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 9, 2015
Bottle from Archive Beer Boutique 090515. Poured with a really big white head that collapsed to leave white lacing on the glass. Hazy in the glass. Hoppy with citrus flavours, lemon rind. Yeasty aroma with some citrus thrown in.

Mine must be old. Massive...as in I can barely pour this thing....head. Taste is yeasty, some malt sweetness, a little lemon and spice. Big miss, but not the beer’s fault is my guess.

ninecats (374) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - APR 30, 2015
Backlog, 50 cl bottle. Hazy yellow, big rocky white foam, dissipates slowly leaving lots of lacings. Aroma is American APA (pine, mango, flower) on one hand, on another it’s Belgian with complexity from the yeast, slight peppery, orange peel, citrus, coriander. Taste is dry and fruity, orange zest, citrus, yeast, minerals. Slight bitter and moderately dry in the finish. Light body, medium carbo, dry texture. High drinkability, the combo of fruity hops and champagne yeast is genius.
