COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Ruby brown, hazy, medium strong head. Fruit, caramel, some alcohol in the aroma. Medium body, sourish focus, a bit peppery, carbonation. Refreshing. Nothing exceptional.

Baladin Leön 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 (2268) - 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.

heavy (2808) - 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.

rodenbach99 (4368) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 11, 2016
Style et résumé: Strong ale belge aux épices.
Comment: En fűt au Saint-Bock finale Euro 2016.
Portrait: Sous le nom de Leön (Noël ŕ l’envers). Un nez de chocolat au caramel épicé. Une touche d’épices de Noël. Une bouche mince avec des saveurs simples d’épices. Facile et agréable, pour amateurs d’épices.
Note: 6+/10
