COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle and keg
Originally sold as a winter ale under the name Nöel - name changed to Leön in 2012/13
Aroma initially characterized by pepper that fight in a field ruled by a rich fruity fragrance of dried fruits with ripen banana, toffee and a soft sweet chocolate fragrance. The attentive taster shouldn't miss a sharp floral of rose and a sensation of must of wine always pleasant.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2018 Bijna zwart kleur, witte schuimkraag van korte duur. Neus is interessant al hoewel niet heel intens met aromas van pruimen, toffee. Medium tot vol in de mond met smaken van koffie, karamel, rozijnen, rijp donker fruit. Na wat tijd komt chocola ook naar voren. Afdronk is vooral zoetig, licht bitter en van goede lengte. Erg mooi bier, zeker een om continue in huis te hebben.

Big corked bottle at home. Dark brown without much head. No lacing. Scent is medium notes of big caramel hit. Over-malted. A bit muddled. Some gray flavors of aggressive yeast as found in barleywine. Finish is a bit sticky and a bit dry. Overengineered and overrated. Very good.

malibrat (207) - Pula, CROATIA - FEB 7, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2018 Pivo u flaši. Ovaj Leon ili ti Noel, ima aromu na Belgian Strong i sve neke okuse koje bi i očekivao u takvom pivu (grožđice, karamela..) , ali ti okusi su 'razmaknuti' jedan od drugog , tako da je ovo jedno od najneizbalansiranijih piva koje sam probao. Mislim , može se popit , ali to je samo slaba 'kopija' jednog Belgian Stronga.

Thuis uit een (leuk, apart) flesje. Bijna zwart van kleur, zeer mooi lichtbruin schuim. Redelijk volle smaak, maar gezien de abv en het goede uiterlijk, toch iets meer van verwacht. Maar evengoed lekker.

SilkTork (5946) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2018
Attractive 330ml dark bottle, unfiltered, from an online shop - probably BeersOfEurope. This has big alcohol fumes, but once past that there's a pleasant bready malt drink. Mouthfeel is a little spritzy. It's quite heady. Sugary. Malty. All in all very pleasant, and definitely my sort of beer. I'll be looking to try more beers from this brewery.

tricksta_p (5462) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JAN 18, 2018
Bottle from De Poort Van Kleef, Deventer. As "Baladin Leön". Aroma is brown malts, caramel, spicy yeast, clove, toffee, brown sugar, dried fruits, raisins. Flavour is fairly sweet and light bitter. Body is medium. Decent Belgian strong dark ale with the usual flavours.

caesar (7465) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - DEC 16, 2017
Bottle as Baladin Leon, BB 03/2019. Almost clear dark brown color, short frothy head. Aroma of grainy and worty malt, bit spicy, bit hay, butterscotch, milk chocolate. Some strange grassy bitterness, caramel sweetness and some spicy and nutty notes. I dont know what to think of this beer. On one hand it feels like a strong belgian dubbel, but sometimes also like a hoppy keller, and the third time the spices take over.

markoijelena (3259) - Belgrade / Amsterdam, SERBIA - DEC 4, 2017
Draft 0.15l at Vrteska festival II Belgrade, Serbia. Thanks everybody for sharing beers. 05.05.2017. Pour it dark brown color with small white head. Aroma toffee, some pepper spices. Taste sweet, caramel, rusty, spices, bit odd, honesty I don't like this Belgian style flavor beers, light body, sticky, soft carbonation, abrupt finish.

Ok duft, ikke skidt, men heller ikke noget som er betydende. App; Tung, rød og ugennemsigtig, flot farve, hvis du kan få lys igennem. Smag; Klassisk belgisk, hvilket er super for en italiener, men hvor du går efter Belgien, så køb der. Eftersmag; Der er ikke meget, den slutter hurtigt, ikke fordi det er dårligt, det er der bare ikke. Til sidst; jow jaaa, joooow, men igen, hvis du vil smage i den stil, så findes der bedre, den er ikke dårlig, den er bare ikke .. god?
