COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 8C.

Papillon (400) - Ottawa, Ontario, - DEC 16, 2011
750 mL Bottle with a champagne cork. Yellow-gold body with a foamy-rocky white head and somewhat profuse effervescence makes it look very inviting. The aroma is fruity-grainy; banana, peach, pear, pineapple, light malts, and hints of ginger and lemon. Very fruity-sweet flavor; green grapes, peach, and pear stand out with an almost buttery quality to it. There is a metallic note that shows up upon the initial pour but that seems to fade or transform to bubblegum as the beer is sipped through the time I take to complete this assay. A bubblegum sweetness takes over in the aftertaste and finish. Im not normally a fan of very sweet beers but this one has this full-bodied fruity sweetness to it as opposed to that thin sugary sweetness that Id be otherwise prone to spit out and condemn such as I had done to another Belgian that was spiked with a most vile sweetener: Aspartame. This full-body fruity sweetness shines in the palate as well: a silky smooth that is an uncommon find. This "Or" has won my heart. Please note that this beer was had at cellar temperature.

Evilman (141) - Taverny, FRANCE - OCT 9, 2016
Apparently the most appreciated Jenlain beer here. Its a pleasant one, like the others, nothing spectacular but a good mix between sweet taste and interesting alcohol level. As the others, I think the alcohol taste is a bit too much pronounced to enjoy it from start to finish, but in usual quantity its a rather good choice for any occasion. Not much better than the Amber variant, I think both worth the same. APPROVED BY TAVERNYS BLACK METAL CREW!

Skinnyviking (9111) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 11, 2015
25 cl. bottle at home. High fluffy and long lasting white head. Clear yellow golden body. Powerful fruity and quite sweet aroma, I have diffulty in distinghishing which but I certainly like the fruits. The beer was a bit too warm when I drank it otherwise I am sure that I would not have noticed the alcohol in the flavor which was also quite sweet and fruity little hops bitterness, low carbonation and a long finish.

Tognetta (777) - So Paulo, BRAZIL - MAY 19, 2015
Amarela escura, levemente turva. Espuma amarelada, em media quantidade, se desfaz rapidamente. Aroma adocicado, alcolica, tonel de madeira. Paladar adocicado mdio, leve amargor no aftertaste, licorosa. Corpo mdio, baixa carbonao. Segue bem o estilo belga, mas o dulor um pouco enjoativo, seria melhor se fosse menos intenso.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2015 Uma cerveja com alma e frescor. Frutada e com odores de conhaque, refrescante mesmo sendo encorpada, recomendo.
