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.

caesar (5043) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 6, 2013
Bottled, no date available but bought a month ago in the local Mitra, large sample. Slight hazy orange color, medium frothy off-white head, some debris. Aroma has some cookie and biscuit maltiness, hint of garlic, grapefruit, bit spicy. Bit bitter, bit spicy, bit dry. Bit sharpish alcohol in the palate. I have the feeling this bottle was past its peak. Currently it doesn’t taste like an IPA, but then again Emelisse doesn’t say it’s an IPA either.

Dorqui (2104) - Brescia, ITALY - JUL 31, 2013
Bottled 0,33L. Fraught orange hazy color, good bubbly and crisp aspect, discreet creamy head of long duation. Good fruity hop aroma, little citrus notes, fruit from a citrus tree, clear mildew, cellar. Not much lively taste, discreet smooth body, very equilibrate alcoholic perception, sweetish fruity start with a pleasant arid bitter end.

fkoolen (259) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 26, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2013 Pours a thin non-lasting head, Amber colour and penny a little carbonation. Nose with citrus and sweet fruits and sourish smells. Interesting IPA-like flavour with the mentioned fruits, coming from the hops but without (big) bitterness. Not what you expect from a traditional blonde as it says on the label: again a very good beer from Emelisse.

Schulste (5) - Enschede, NETHERLANDS - JUL 19, 2013 does not count
caramel, floral, golden, frothy, white foam, Easy drinking IPA. Very sessionable. Great to see the influence of American brewers in Europe.

Lowenbrau (1893) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - JUL 15, 2013
On tap @Lúpulo Feroz, Oviedo. Some swwet and belgian yeast. Pours bright gold, some hazy, some lacing, average white head. Medium body, high carbonation. Mild bitter, some hints of sweetness. Some dry aftertaste. Enjoyable, but more a golden ale rather than an ipa.

Peltoch (11) - FRANCE - JUN 17, 2013
Achetée à Saveur Drink, belle blonde avec mousse blanche peu persistante. Nez très porté sur les agrumes et quelques rappels sur le vin blanc. Bouche souple et légère, fine amertume finale. Une bière blonde très fruitée.

Overheersende smaak van grapefruit, maar toch perfect in balans met de overige biersmaken (vooral hop). Heerlijk om een warme zomeravond mee in te luiden. En voor wie dat wil: hij lijkt me zelfs lekker bij het ontbijt (is weer eens wat anders dan champagne).

makromaniak (129) - Tilburg, NETHERLANDS - JUN 9, 2013
One of my favourite blonds...easy drinkable but full of flavour. Taste is hoppy, herbs, hay and a bit of tropical fruit...nice moderate bitter finish.

Fra fat på Cardinaltreff juni-13: "lukter som min gamle bestemor" sa ølnerden ved siden av meg.Ikke helt enig, men den smaker definitivt bedre og søtere enn aromaen gir bud om (hadde forventet en mer brettlignende smak). Cascade er hovedhumlen, men de må ha brukt gammel humle. Ganske rund ettersmak.
