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.

Skål!

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.

Lawger (103) - SWEDEN - AUG 20, 2014
Pours a cloudy amber with a huge white head. A rather impressive aroma for the style, blending the classic belgo blonde elements with a more modern, hoppy profile. There're yeasty, candied scents along with some pine forest, citrus fruits and a hint of mixed spices. The palate is medium bodied with some hints of alcohol, moderate bitterness which is still more prominent than expected for the style, and a rather long finish. Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Kris Wines. Dark gold with foamy white head. Definite Belgian yeast notes on the nose with some light fruity hops in there too. Yeast notes give this a full mouthfeel, slightly hoppier than your usual Belgian blonde, with quite a bitter finish.

Sparf (112) - Östersund, SWEDEN - AUG 15, 2014
17/6 2014 En kryddig citrusarom med inslag av jäst och aning råttpiss. Intressant och lovande. Smaken är förvånansvärt blek i jämförelse med den intressanta doftpaletten. Lite fruktigt och med koriandern. Bra avvägd beska, men utan några intressanta vändningar. Välgjort och balanserat. Utseendet är ljust, disig brygd med ett tämligen storbubbligt skum med ok halveringstid. Eftersmaken är kort, metallisk och det är bara en mjuk beska som ligger kvar. Återigen utan något intressant i sig.

BeerViking (2424) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2014
Keg at LCBF, hazy amber with a thin head, funky and lightly hoppy nose, farmy saison notes over sharply dry-bitter hops, faint lemon and earth. Nice, but lacking in integration.

Osprey87 (1579) - WALES - AUG 15, 2014
Keg at LCBF. Bright orange, hazy, still, small ring of white head. Aroma is orange, toffee (Centennial?). Body is medium, slightly foamy, a touch of carbonation. Taste is more sweet toffee and orange with a whisper of musty malt.

Tastes like a pretty standard belgian beer that was lemony but also bananary. A bit like a leffe. Bottle at bottle shop.
