NikkTwist (1539) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 15, 2013
Draft at Monks. Hazy orange amber pour. Off-white foam that leftsome runny lace. High IBUs. Dry finish but a lot of honey up front. Well blended. Feels a bit like a mild barleywine. Not a bad thing.

kaser (2541) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Poured from draft at Local Option. Very cloudy orange pour with white bubbles lacing rim. Dense fruit aroma and can smell the booze. Love the taste. Bananna, orange, grapefruit, slight bitter and hops - just good

Grima (2083) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - MAY 9, 2013
Bottle from Bierzwerg!
Pours reddish amber colored with small head. Smells hoppy-fruity, oily and slight alcoholic. Starts with flat carbonation. Aroma is fruity-hoppy, with lots of resin and pine woods. Middle part is creamy and fruity with lots of pine woods and some caramel. Goes into a bitter-dry hoppy finish with some fruits and lots of pine wood!

Agressively poured this bottle of beer and still only a slight dense smooth head which only lasted a bit but left a film for most of the rest of the beer. A dark amber in color smells like you’d expect, piney hops and cittrus with a bit of spice which I assume was from the yeast. Tastes a lot like it smells but a bit subdued. Heavier on the pine and lighter on the citrus than I expected. Still a bit of additional spice as well. Very smooth but seemed to lack Carbonation. Not flat just flatter than usual. i did not mind this so much as I love naturally carbonated cask ale, and that was what the mouthfeel was liike. I could easily drink a couple of these but generally I always find IPAs to be less drinkable as they overpower my taste buds a bit.

Cloudy dark amber beer. Nice frothy white head. Softish dry palate. Creamy malt quickly overwhelmed by bitterish marmalade orange. Finishes with some aniseed alcohol and some minerals. Probably should of had this fresher (it’s at least 8 months old) but still decent.

33 cl bottle @ home. Rated on 17.12.2010
Aroma is sweet and somewhat hoppy with exotic fruits and some resin. Flavour is sweet with fruity hops, some resin, glue, caramel and hints of biscuits. Emelisse should stick to stouts and porters.
