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.

Bottled at Bioshop’s Arms Vasagatan, Stockholm. Before pouring it strikes me that the design label makes it feel branded (=commerical) and I get negative vibes from it. It pours clear bright golden with rich, exceptionally firm head and slight sediment. The aroma holds grainy malt, honey and a twist of lemon. Faint citric hops leads onwards to a salty finish. Dryness, clean malt character and spritzyness lends it an elegance, but it somehow feels artificial - like a make-up. Somehow this is like Russian champagne.

TimE (4074) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUN 26, 2015
True to the style with lots of Belgian yeast character and very effervescent but really lacks character and not that interesting plus not my style.

bjakk (482) - Skagafjordur, ICELAND - JUN 4, 2015
Yellow, lightly cloudy with nice white foam. Aroma of fruit, mango with a hint of sour bread in the background. Mild taste of sweet fruity caramel with a grape fruit sweet growing bitterness in the aftertaste. The taste is a bit of a disapointment from the aroma
