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.

Stew41 (1942) - Phuket, THAILAND - OCT 21, 2016
Nothing really amazing for the style but a solid example. A little spice and maybe even the fainest hint of rhubarb. I always get a sense of saison when drinking these styles. Lingering length on the finish. (sek 49 Ominpollos Stockholm)
