Omnipollo Leon 
Posted: 27 July 2015  Beer Republic 8.5 
Omnipollo Leon from Sweden Omnipollo is billed as a Belgian pale ale, which it literally is because Omnipollo contracts out the brewing to De Proefbrouwerij in Belgium.  Leon is heavily hopped and fermented using champagne yeast.    
Avg price/liter: USD 16.73   ABV %: 6.5  Type: Pale Ale  Sweden 
       


I lived in Sweden for 18 months in the early 1990's.  What I could say about Swedish beer then was that 1) it was superexpensive  2) it was bad.  I am sure those same two points still apply to mainstream Swedish beer today.         

They don't apply to Swedish craft brewery Omnipollo, founded in 2011 by Henok Fentie and Karl Grandin.  Like Mikkeller, Omnipollo is a gypsy brewer.  The conceive of their recipes in house and then contract out the brewing to a brewing partner which needn't be located anywhere close to Sweden.  The beer bottles and designs themselves look like works of art.     

Omnipollo is billed as a Belgian pale ale, which it literally is because Omnipollo contracts out the brewing to De Proefbrouwerij in Belgium, one of the main breweries behind many of Mikkeller's brews.  Leon is heavily hopped and fermented using champagne yeast, a technique I saw similarly applied with Hitachino Nest's Red Rice Ale, where sake yeast was brought into the process.     

Omnipollo Leon guarantees to be unlike all the other pale ales you drank last week and the week before. If that's not a good enough reason to try it,  go get drunk on rotgut in a gutter.
