33cl. Subdued EU/NL take on the DIPA style, defined by chewy caramel biscuit malts, rather subdued peachy hops for the style and some booziness. OK but a 15cl sample would have sufficed.

Bottle, 33 cl. hazy orange with a small, descending, bubbly off-white head. Aroma of berries, white pepper, herbal hops, ryebread), wood and some fragant wheaty notes. Medium to full body, medium carbonation, dry and sugary coated mouthfeel. Flavor has a minty note, is rather vinious with notes of dried fruits aka apricots. Lingering, herbal and resinous bitter finish. By far the best Emelisse, I’ve had so far.

330. Pours a hazy burnished dark amber with a loose and sudsy white head. Sharp piercing oranges and a bit of ammonia on the nose. Very penetrating. Bread crusts, cookie dough, and light caramel as well. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Caramel, bread crusts, and light oranges on the mid palate. Long bready finish. Kinda mushy. Maybe getting old.

golden, caramely pour. nice and creamy off-white head. strange aroma, very clean but with some unfamiliar notes. Orignal indeed, taste is also pretty non-conformist for a dipa. Almost no citrus, more peachy and fruity, but still with a close to parching bitterness towards the end. Good stuff

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2013 33 cl bottle @ BXL East. Pours cloudy orange with foamy white head. Aroma is huge of tropical fruits; mango and papaya. Taste is slightly bitter but finishes smooth.There’s some caramel/honey sweetness that balances out the bitterness. Some pine/resin flavor as well. Less bitter than American DIPAs which for me is a good thing. Enjoyable beer.
