3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shared 750 ml green corked "champagne" bottle, from Voldby Købmandsgaard. Reddish brown colour, moderate off-white head. Moderate but nice aroma, malts, herbal hops and a hint of caramel. Harmonious flavour, not very sweet, herbal hops, highly drinkable. Better suited to accompany Christmas dinner than its sweeter Belgian counterparts.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Spice, flower, and a little funk in the aroma. Flavor is dull and metallic, with a thin mouthfeel. I’ve liked other beers by Jenlain, but this is a pass.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Whole Foods, Bowery 750ml ($6): (bottled as Jenlain Winter... abv is the same, so I assume that I make no mistake) Pours an amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is yeast, sugar, fruit, and caramel. Taste is a bit sweet, and it leaves a lingering sugary aftertaste. Carbonation is somewhere is the middle. Body is nice and full. I had an off-taste in a couple of swigs that tasted like cheapness. Overall, this is not bad though.

Amber/copper in color, fairly clear. Metallic, malty aroma. Taste is of burnt malts with belgium like spiciness. Lively carbonation. Strange flavor profile. Didn’t do much for me.
