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.

Medium aroma of malts, caramel, Belgian yeast, spices, hops and citrus.

Turbid/opaque yellow/golden beer with a medium/large off-white head.

Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel and Belgian yeast; ends slightly bitter and dry with spices, hops and citrus.

This beer is balanced, but lacks complexity and depth.

Wojo21 (314) - Pelplin, POLAND - MAY 14, 2016
Bardzo ładny, rześki aromat, cytrusy, przyprawy. Kolor złocisty, klarowne, wysoka piana, ładny lacing. W smaku delikatne, wytrawne, tutaj też cytrusy, przyprawy, fajnie wszystko zbalansowane, goryczka raczej niska, zalegająca. Bardzo dobre i pijalne piwo.

Lätt och frisk. Lite jäst och fruktighet blir en fin balans. Något tunn utan att bjuda på något extra ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ArtificialCyst (1051) - Szczecin, POLAND - MAY 4, 2016
Aroma: Citrus, lemon, red apple, peach, lot of spices. Appearance: Head is bit too high - makes drinking harder, quite dense and stiff with some lacing, color is pale golden. Taste: Similar to a saison, very spicy, light, fruity (lime, pineapple, peach), bitterness is quite low, peppery.

Bottle at home. Aroma is pale malt, zesty citrus, lemon, spicy yeast, strong hoppy notes. Flavour is moderate to medium bitter. Body is medium, has a fairly dry finish. Nicely hoppy and fruity Belgian style ale.

GoufCustom (1944) - HONG KONG - APR 24, 2016

330ml bottle bought at HK Brewcraft in Central.

Looks: Clear golden colour with a thin trace of dirt-like yeast sediments; Explosive two and a half finger head and long lasting crumpety white foam; Beautiful sticky lacing with quite fizzy carbonation.

Aroma: Very fragrant malt, with citrus essence, pitted prunes, dry white wine, candied fruits, grapes, berries, light perfume, sugar, light spices and strong Bel yeast.

Taste: Mid to light sweet malt, with fair caramel, light red fruits, floral, molasses, spices, strong wine yeast, moderate lemon, moderate bitter hops and grass.

Body: Medium body. Smooth and slick palate.

Mouth Feel: Good Ale maltyness in fairly sturdy and creamy background with better red fruits and some caramel. Strong European hops dominates with floral, fair lemon and notable grassy bitterness. Moderate sweetness, good dry winey feel and yeast. Simple but crisp and nice!

Hoppiness: Citrus and light spices in nose. Floral, spices, fair lemon and grass in taste. Bitterness is moderate for a lasting, close to mid astringent bitter sweet finish.

After Taste: Fairly dry. Spicy, winey and fairly bitter to mouth.

Comments: A simple but effective Belgian Pale Ale, with champagne yeast contributes greatly in beautiful heads, nice assorted fruity aroma and some dryish winey taste, plus good malt, just right sweetness and strong lemony hops made it as if this is a hoppy champagne beer. A resounding Yes!

750 ml cork & cage bottle. First glass has a clear light amber color with frothy, off-white head. Aroma has sweet malts with a caramel touch and some floral and slightly spicy belgian yeast. Taste starts balanced with some yeast notes like grass and hay, not funky at all, just clean farmhouse notes. Finishes hoppy and quite bitter. Aftertaste is hoppy and dry. Body is quite smooth with soft carbonation. I didnt expect that when I saw the huge head it formed. Really nice example of a belgian yeast and american hops combination.
