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.

BeerZack (288) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - FEB 16, 2013
Clear golden with bright white fizzy ring of head. Smells of sweet honey and hint of orange oil. Feels very carbonated and foamy on the tongue. Taste is very subtle, but there is some harsh astringency on the back of the palate that gets scrubbed away by the carbonation. This beer seems to have more texture and feel than it does flavor. As it warms I get hints of chamomile tea with honey on the nose, still no distinct flavor, but I might say mildly herbal and malty (but almost completely dry).

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 (2422) - 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.

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.
