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.

330 ml bottle @ Leiden, Netherlands, rated on 2015-07-22
Clear orange beer with quickly dissolving white head. Aroma has gooseberry, passion fruit, yeast, herbs and some cat pee. Flavor has herbs, gooseberry and passion fruit. Palate is medium full with quite strong carbonation and some bitterness. Finish has strong bitterness. Aftertaste has herbs and yeast. Adding in the sediment makes it more hazy and takes off refreshingness. A decent Dutch IPA, almost saisony.

bonkiedeaap (428) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 24, 2015
Bottle from Albert Heijn in Leerdam. The beer is golden/yellow colored and has a large and stable white head, with livingly CO2. The aroma is hoppy, which gives it a nice fruitness of melon, grapefruit and tropical fruits, but also a spicy hint is noticable. The taste is medium bodied. The beer starts sweet which nice hops and fruit notes from the aroma, to change into a pleasant bitterness which is well balanced with the sweetness. The finish is like I said, nicely bitter and dry.

GSAP (578) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 4, 2015
Licht pittige, zoetige smaak, aroma is fris scherp van citrus tonen. Smaak is uitdagend en mooi in balans, vergt veel van wat uitstel tot een andere slok. Zomer looks.

Sans doute, ce à quoi devrait ressembler la Leffe IPA s’ils avaient le moindre talent ... Le truc c’est que chez Emelisse, il ya derrière une large gamme de bières de grande qualité ... Joliement florale / délicatement piquante. Agéable dégustation printannière d’une fin de journe de travail ....

adasko (984) - Poznan, POLAND - JUN 7, 2015
Has a bit hoppy, fruity and malty aroma from the bottle. From the bottle it feels more thick and dense. From the glass on the other hand it’s definitely way more fresh. A bit sour with easily noticeable Belgian yeast. It’s hazy, golden color beer, with nice white head and great lacing. It’s strongly carbonated, very drinkable, refreshing. In taste it’s unfortunately quite empty and flat. Has some malty notes, a lot of the ones coming from yeast and in the end has pleasant bitterness. The beer is great for refreshment but in overall it’s not that interesting.

Gangstergafje (283) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - JUN 5, 2015
The beer has a beautiful amber color. The foam is little, but purely white. A thin drape of foam remains on top of the beer t form a distinguished covering layer. The smell is devine. It is so sweet and fruity. It is a tropical fruit punch accompanied by a bitterness that tells you this is beer and not the aroma of heaven. This is one of the best smelling beers in a long time. The taste is equally tasteful. Fruity as hell, little bitternes, a heavenly treat for the tastebuds. Wow.
