CapFlu (4500) - 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.

iam (369) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 8, 2003
Clear copper colour. Taste almost like a beer/cognac mixture. Different but not unpleasent

Drinkingdan (371) - East Norriton, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 8, 2003
Caramel is very prestent especially in the afer taste. Good but not great.

The Etruscan (528) - Tuscany, ITALY - JAN 3, 2003
Thin, weak head. Copper-light brown color. Aroma is sweet, fruity with caramel notes. Flavour is malty too, with caramel, candy sugar, slightly fruity and ending in a very short bitter finish. Medium bodied.

iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 1, 2003
Very light brown appearance. Short musty flavour, with strong malt overtones. Several spices linger on the palate, smooth and sweet, but there was something missing in this brew.

krisbierjaeger (844) - dolores, Colorado, USA - DEC 28, 2002
celebration of caramel in a glass. butterscotch amber with a blush of haze, the too-delicate head cringes to the edge of the glass and expires. orange blossom and light melon aroma, warmed kraft caramels, dry grasses and pine nuts. accommodating carbonation tries to sneak in an over-weight burden of sweetness; flavor is like bran flakes and wine with whispers honey. some hop bitterness arrives a bit late and a dollar short: it can’t quite arrest the chablis sweetness or bridge the thin texture. like a sugared oktoberfest. still a tasty product, but this flawed farm house beer bespeaks an apparently overworked farmer who isn’t paying enough attention to details.

johndoughty (3960) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2002
Copper coloured with a lovely smooth slightly caramel taste.Full of body but not overpowering despite its 6.5 per cent strength. I think that France is very underated as a beer producing nation-this will stand up against all but the very best.

GregClow (2881) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 12, 2002
Beautiful clear copper-red colour with a smooth white head. Sweet malt, spice and cereal on the nose. Malt, caramel and a light fruitiness on the tongue, with a bitter and slightly alcoholic finish. I’m not familiar enough with the style to know how representative this brew is, but in general terms, it’s not bad.
