(Draught at Pikkulintu, 20110601) The beer poured amber and quite clear. Its head was small and white. Aroma had fruitiness, hops and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, hops, fruitiness, fresh grass, mildly sweetness and bitterness. Aftertaste was fruity and bitter. A tasty hoppy blond.

Pretty standard blond beer color. It’s the smell and taste which are different from the typical blond. Very much the nelson sauvin hops that come through. Really nice aftertaste, very well balanced.

Bottle @ Pub. Taste makes up for the smell. It’s a good beer, bit fresh. My favorite Emelisse beer.

Draught @ Pikkulintu, Helsinki

Pours orange with a hazy head. Aroma has hints of spices and hops. Taste is surprisingly hoppy with notes of spices and fruits. Bitter and rather sweet finish. A nice take on the blonde style, Nelson Sauvin at its finest.

skortila (4483) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JAN 31, 2011
On tap @ Emelisse. The aroma has citrus, toffee. Slightly hazy, yellow-orange coloured with a big off-white head. The taste is light bitter, has some toffee malt, citrus, little flowery, bit winey. Really beautifull.

300 ml bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu.
Pours a slightly unclear, dark yellow colour and a white head. Aroma of floral hops and grass. Flavour of flowery hops, strong citrus, caramel malts and grass. Medium bodied with a thin mouthfeel. Lacks character.

caesar (5059) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JAN 21, 2011
Bottled and tap @ Emelisse. Nice slight hazy orange color, big off-white head. Lovely hop aroma of clearly nelson sauvin, hint of citrus, white wine, plant juice. Nice soft bitter taste, some malt, but mostly citrussy white wine notes. Good starter.
