Look: dark amber with red shades, cloudy, sparkling unstable head.
Aroma: boiled fruits, unripe black pepper.
Taste: light tartness with light spicy bitterness.
Flavour: candied fruits, light roasted notes.
Not bad but aroma and taste is too weak. dnicolaescu (2518) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - DEC 18, 2016
BOTTLE 75 CL as Leon. Hazy mahogany, small beige head. Dark fruit but not sweet, more like brown sugars, quite boozy. A bit thin, very faint maltiness, toasty, and clovy spice. Ok, but underwhelming, as most dark Belgians. GhostS (318) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - DEC 5, 2016
(tap, Baladin Bistrot, Milan) medium aroma - fermented fruits with few rum, yellow fruit jam (peach and apricot), raisins, caramel, some belgian yeasts.
medium taste - sweet fruits under fermentation, sugar’s syrup, peach jam, a lot of flowers, belgian yeasts, some chili (very few). very good and balanced! Erzengel (8619) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - SEP 8, 2016
*Bottle from Rudat as Baladin Leön. Very thick and intense brew. Dried red fruits. Lots of malt, very rich and deep. Moderate bitter, very intense sticky, round and great! heavy (2817) - Split, CROATIA - JUL 19, 2016
Jun ’16. A 0.75 l bottle, corked&waxed, as Baladin Leön. Obviously a palindrome of Nöel, clever. It poured hazy dark rusty brown body with quite a big and creamy head that dampened the aroma initially. It showed dark dried fruits, some spices, weaker anyway. Flavor was lightly sweet, dark dried fruits, strong chocolate note, caramel, grainy, bread, pepper (brewer’s signature I guess) wood, some perfumey spice. Pretty complex with notable alcohol that didn’t bother though, I understood it as a part of its Christmas character. Full bodied with long, lightly bitter (both grainy and alcohol bite) and sweet dried fruit finish. Quite nice Noël.
