This top fermented beer is a luxury beer full of flavor and character whose fine balance owes itself to the variety of malts carefully selected from the best growers and the subtle blend of different types of hops, together with a new more aromatic strain of yeast. Its shimmering and sparking robe is crystal clear. It has a dense and persistent head that leaves a fine, filigree pattern on the glass.
A light refreshing beer, it has a summery bouquet with fruity and flowery notes that counterbalance its well-defined hoppy tones and generous and long-lasting aftertaste.
Jenlain Or is best served at between 6 and 8°C.

Pours clear gold with a dense white head that disappears quickly. Sweetness and the smell of alcohol prevail in aroma. Medium carbonation, Fruity (citrus, banana) and sweet flavor with strong taste of alcohol. Short finish.

Renobob (450) - Besançon, FRANCE - MAR 25, 2014
A boire plutôt fraîche. Jolies notes de caramel et de fruits. La finale est un peu courte mais l’équilibre général est bon. Un peu cher quand même pour ce produit.

GoufCustom (606) - HONG KONG - FEB 15, 2014

750 ml cork bottle bought at CitySuper in Harbour City, Tsim Sha Tsui.

Clear light golden orange colour with no yeast sediments; One-quarter finger head and soapy off white foam which fades in 20 seconds; Very small sticky lacing and quite fizzy carbonation; Aroma of malt and wheat, with pretty strong phenolic, light banana, coriander, spices, faint alcohol, yeast and faint grass; Strong sweet taste of malt, with light metallic, syrups, alcohol, phenolic, very light ester, shades of band-aid, yeast and light grassy hops; Close to light body. Slightly slick palate; Mouth feel is very sweet and quite unpleasant for the style. Thin body, strong phenolic nose indicates substantial wheat in the mix, which would be nice if this is a German weizen, but for this Belgian Blonde it’s really hollow and lacking. Lots of petty off-tastes: metallic, band-aid, syrups, strong phenol. Sigh…Hoppiness is faint grass nose and light grass taste. Typical light Bel bitterness, not enough to counter the syrup for an abrupt sweet-bitter finish; Wet after taste, sweet and a bit odd to mouth.

Comments: This is literally a Belgian Strong Weizen, with a very strong weissbier-like wheaty character in nose and taste at the expense of the usual Bel-yeast and esters. The result is iffy at best: too sweet with lots of little off-tastes, hollow body and empty mouth feel. Barely drinkable so don’t bother.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2014 Beer looks nice when poured. Clear golden with a full white head. Well balanced, but a touch too sweet for me and rather thin. Unpleasant, alcoholic finish.

Bottled 250ml Saveur. Clear golden color, medium-sized white head, nice lace. Malts, some alcohol, sweetish overriped fruits in the nose. Medium-bodied. Fruity (apricot) flavor, low bitterness, alcohol and touch of metal. Simplified version of Leffe Blonde family.
