COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Skĺl!

Very different bpa. Taste resembles a pilsner. Must be the champagne yeast. crisp and refreshing, seems lighter than 6.5 abv. Pleasant lingering finish like a geisha coffee.

superspak (3140) - Michigan, USA - APR 7, 2015
330 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 10/13/2016. Pours lightly hazy bright golden orange color with a 2-3 finger dense and fluffy off white head with great retention, that reduces to a large cap that lasts. Nice dense foamy lacing clings around the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, pineapple, pear, apple, pepper, cracker, bread, herbal, floral, grass, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of bright citrus hops, fruity/spicy yeast, and moderate pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, pineapple, pear, apple, pepper, cracker, bread, herbal, floral, grass, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Good amount of peppery yeast spiciness and earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon/orange zest, pineapple, pear, apple, pepper, cracker, bread, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus hops, fruity/spicy yeast, and moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/yeast/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. High carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and fairly sticky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent hoppy Belgian pale ale. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus hops, fruity/spicy yeast, and moderate pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

MMJL (182) - Gliwice, POLAND - MAR 18, 2015
Z butelki zapach dosyć subtelny, słodki. Dosyć trudny do zdefiniowania – ale raczej ciasteczkowo-przyprawowy. Piana BARDZO wysoka, prawie biała, dosyć luźna. Z czasem rozluźnia się jeszcze bardziej, ale opadać za bardzo nie chce. W barwie piwo nie jest bursztynowe, ono jest pomarańczowe. Co ciekawe po nalaniu podzieliło się na dwie warstwy – dolna połowa jest całkowicie klarowna, a górna zauważalnie zmętniona – sam nie wiem co mam o tym sądzić…Przelanie piwa do szkła wcale nie pomogło w nazwaniu wyczuwalnych aromatów. Na pewno jest słodki, owocowy, ciasteczkowy, przyprawowy, ale co tu jest konkretnie, to nie potrafię powiedzieć. Jest dosyć przyjemny, lekko winny. Pierwszy łyk i już wiem, że są amerykańskie chmiele. Smak jest… herbaciany. Tak – myślę, że to dobre określenie. Przypomina nieco szlachetną earl grey – jest kwiatowe, lekko owocowe, przyprawowe. Lekko słodkie ale zdecydowanie wyraźniej gorzkie – i nie czuć że jest to goryczka od chmielu. Pomimo, że jest. Ma też ono w sobie coś z miodu pitnego. I w żadnym wypadku nie mam tu na myśli nut negatywnego utlenienia. Szkoda, że nie podano jakich odmian chmielu tu użyto. Odkryłem tej zastosowanej tutaj nowofalowej innowacji, pozwoliło mi się wreszcie doszukać w aromacie mandarynek. Jest to piwo, do którego w pierwszym momencie byłem nastawiony sceptycznie. I do którego przekonywałem się z każdym łykiem co raz bardziej. Jest to ciekawe i bardzo udane nieortodoksyjne podejście do klasycznego stylu. Brawa

750ml bottle - shared by ElviraS - thanks!
Messy dirty aroma - "belgian IPA" levels of mess. Hops, yeast, mess. Hazy straw huge spongey head, but a little brief. Tastes better, has a twangy belgian twist, but plenty of full hops, a bit floral, but a bitter resin behind it too. Almost saisony refreshing twang. Simple palate, quite refreshing. Started bad, but pulled its socks up.
