1.96/5 rDev -40.2%
Pours a clear gold colour, whispy white head, not much lace. Pretty dull.
Smells grainy. Sweet with creamed corn, rice and rolled oats. Honey as well. Smells... Bad. Not just boring. Bad.
Taste is rubbish as well. Grainy, rice, corn, puffed oats. Fairly dull, overly sweet. No balance, no finesse. Meh meh MEH.
Thin, bit gluggy at times from the solvent sugars. Bad.
Do not like. Will not drink. No construct proper sentences.

Jenlain Blonde has a thin, off-white head, a semi-clear, orange-gold appearance, some bubble streams, and an enormous amount of suspended, powdery sediment. The aroma is extremely faint, but one might pick up a ghost of fruit and light malt. Taste is of syrup & apricots, sugar, light malt, and mild, background bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium and somewhat soft, and Jenlain Blonde finishes semi-dry, easy drinking, and not the slightest bit alchohilic.

Didn't really know what to expect.
Poured a hazy amber color (between amber and gold) and was topped with a thin white head.
The aroma is easy to pick up - some malts along with the fruity aroma.
It starts sweet and fruity, slightly yeasty feel, followed by a bittery body with slightly off-putting metalic feel and quite obvious alcohol feel.
Not my favourite, to be honest.

Beautiful golden color with over 6 fingers of thick and fluffy head with great retention and leaving lots of laces. Apparent carbonation and with floating particles at the bottom of the bottle.
It has a light tartness to its aroma with notes of lemon and a hint of horse blanket. I wasn’t expecting this last one.
Sweet flavor with hints of oranges, tea leaves, champagne, pear soaked in alcohol and green apples.
Medium body with good carbonation and a citrus acid feeling.
It is a mix of a Tripel, Sour and a bit of Belgian IPA. Worth a try, not sure I would have this again.

Quick review: saw the bad reviews on this, so I wasn't expecting much. I was pleasantly surprised when I tried it and it was somewhat floral and pretty smooth and light.
I had a bottle that was somewhat aged, so I don't know if that somehow affected the flavors. Served in a tulip glass, garnished with an orange. A little too sweet if I had one criticism, with the cloying floral notes often present in a cheaper Belgian style Trippel. Nice mouthfeel, a little on the smaller side.
BOTTOM LINE: I probably wouldn't get this again because there are better beers for the price, but I would get it again for about $5 per 750ml. Nothing really special about it.

A: Pours a lightly hazy light to medium golden yellow in color with moderate amounts of visible carbonation and some deep golden yellow + light orange highlights. The beer has a half finger tall sudsy white head that quickly reduces to a mottled very thin film that covers about 75% of the surface of the beer and a thin ring of medium sized bubbles at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of carbonation are observed.
S: Moderate aromas of sweet malts, sweet light fruits (apple and a touch of grape), and just a light hint of spices.
T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of sweet grainy malts with moderate flavors of sweet light fruits (apples dominate). Very light hints of herbal hops and a touch of spices. Minimal amounts of bitterness which fade quickly are observed.
M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Hints of dryness in the finish.
O: I remember drinking this beer way back in the mid-1990s when this was a very interesting beer but unfortunately it did not stand the test of time for me, the industry has moved on but these guys have not changed in the least.
