Amber in color with a fizzy dissapating head. Good aroma somewhat skunky. Flavor mostly light and fruity with little hops character, finishing sweet. Nice beer.

UPDATED: JUL 2, 2003 Good beer for what is appearently a "European standard" Copper color with a malt flavor. Very candy like. But I like nonetheless. Not for those who do not like a sweet beer. Complex enough to justify the malt. Good beer, wee wee!

Say what you will about the French, they brew a damn fine ale. Red-orange with beige head and decent lacing. Malty yet not too sweet, with a nice firm bitterness that is lacking in many other ales of this general type; there's a Belgian-type earthiness as well, and some pleasing woodiness. If it was cheaper, this would be a wonderful everyday beer.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAR 9, 2003
330 ml bottle. This is one beautiful beer, tawny red with a thick medium-sized meringue topping. Nose alcoholic, vinous, malty, a bit too sharp for me for this style; where's the warmth? Flavor definitely better, decadently malty and extremely creamy in the mouthfeel; caramel and vanilla both seem present in the slightly-too-alcoholic flavor profile. While not the best biere de garde I've had, so far it seems hard to go wrong in this style as far as I'm concerned.

pivo (2579) - GERMANY - MAR 9, 2003
This is a lot of alcohol in the nose and taste for 6.5% - Kinda dominates things and make the whole experience just evaporate before it can start. Still got a nice cinnamony nose and syrup and raisins in the taste. Also a certain nuttiness in the middle. Clean finish. Thinner than I would have liked and not very complex, but pretty good in balance. A well-poised beer.

YogiBeera (2487) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 8, 2003
Alcohol, almond, marcipan like, cinnamon nose. Medium frothy head, fizzy carbonation, amber color. Malty but very alcoholic taste. It is almost like a whiskey, but the alcohol overlaps all other flavors that might be present. Maybe a bit raison is tasteable.

CapFlu (4588) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 26, 2003
(330ml Bottle) France has been taking a political beating in the newspapers for their anti-war stance, so I decided to do something nice for them - I bought their Jenlain beer. Peculiar label depicting a demonic winged creature… not something that makes me think of beer nor peace loving France. Pours a light copper body beneath a thin almond coloured head. Malt and strong alcohol nose, maybe some cognac in there. Very sweet flavour. Light floral taste with strong alcohol compliment. Very nice treat; far better than XO.

A bit sweet with a hint of orange in the nose. Lovely ambercolour and a bit of licorice in the finish.

LarsHolmer (112) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 16, 2003
This shiny amber-coloured unpasturized french Bière de garde has a heavy body with a sweet finish. If you get the champagnebottle, try to keep it for at least 24 months and you´ll get a less sweeter variety. Then you can enjoy the orange and spicy taste even more.

Clear copper colour. Taste almost like a beer/cognac mixture. Different but not unpleasent
