pivo (2566) - 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 (2475) - 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 (4522) - 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.
