COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Emelisse Blond is a soft and malty artisinal beer. The colour green stands for the American Cascade hop used. This gives it a hoppy and herbal flavour.

Definitely the best beer of the weekend. Classy IPA with that special freshness in the back. It did not mention it would be a great mixture of mandarines and oranges but it is so fruity that it did instantly hit me. Well balanced, a superb piwo.

McTapps (3022) - Ruhrgebiet, GERMANY - APR 19, 2014
Pours out of the bottle in a light hazy light golden-amber colour with low steady head and medium body. Wonderful aroma of spices and hops. Taste of ripe, aromatic hops, spruce, coriander, citrus and herbs. Wonderful herbal- medium dry finish. Great beer.

Voor een blond is deze veel te hoppig. De smaak is citrusachtig en waterig. Beetje pilsig. Echte amateurbrouwseltje van de plaatselijke brouwclub. De putgeur nodigt niet uit tot drinken. Maar dat valt uiteindelijk mee. Een 6 je zou ik dit geven.

danielyabu (1093) - União da Vitória, BRAZIL - APR 6, 2014
average frothy white head. fair lacing. mostly diminishing. cloudy thick dark yellow body. aroma: moderate hoppy, grass, lychee, pineapple. if: moderate sweet light bitter. ff: moderate sweet bitter; long duration. palate: light medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, metallic finish. Aroma delicioso, lembra lichia, abacaxi e uva verde. Dulçor totalmente peculiar de uva verde também lembrando lichia, muito diferenciado em qualquer IPA que já provei. Leve aquecimento alcoólico persiste até o final. Sabor lembra também chá verde e grama. O amargor é de um lupulado mais suave, agradável e menos agradável. Excelente IPA, uma das 3 melhores que já tomei, senão a melhor. 200 s

Amber bodied and stable very nice head. Both modern resin and fruity hops and classic herbal hops. Biscuit malt body. Very pleasant. Taste is good too, but slightly astringent, especially in the end. (33cl bottle from Beer City)

ElDesmadre (1361) - Mikołów, POLAND - MAR 21, 2014
Bottle from Bierkoning, thanks! A honeyish malty base with some Belgian spiciness carries lots of hops, giving notes of lychee, gooseberry and pomelo. Medium body, medium bitterness, dry and spicy finish. Up till now this may be the best combination of Belgian spiciness and new wave hops I’ve had.

Barwa: bursztynowa, pełna, klarowna. Piana biała, początkowa obfita, drobno pęcherzykowa, jednak szybko opadająca pozostająca jedynie na ściankach. Wysycenie niskie. Aromat: chmielowy, owocowy (głównie mango), z lekkim karmelem - cudownie kuszący. Smak: lekko słodki z wyraźną chmielowo - owocową kontrą, choć goryczka najwyżej średnia. Mimo tego piwo jest zbalansowane i pijalne. Po lekkim dołku (Dubbel) Emelisse udowadnia, że nadal potrafi tworzyć świetne piwa. Idealna synteza blonda z IPA ze wskazaniem na to drugie. Jest on nieco ciemniejszy, niż standardowy blond ale to akurat mi nie przeszkadza. Aromat chmielowy jest cudowny i można zatopić się w nim na długo. Ogólnie zatem zdecydowanie warto, choć nazwa blond może nieco mylić. Do spróbowania zachęca także firmowy kapsel zastosowany bodaj po raz pierwszy.

Grzesiek79 (2974) - Radom, POLAND - MAR 17, 2014
Super smaczne i tresciwe IPA po holendersku. Spora i trwala piana znaczaca slady na szkle. Kolor metnt i intensywnie pomaranczowy. Piwo aromatyczne i to zdecydowanie. Amerykanskie odmiany chmielu az tancza w nozdrzach. W smaku chmiel dominuje ale nie przytlacza rownej slodowosci. Wszystko perfekcyjnie moim zdaniem wywarzone i zbalansowane.
