3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
#30 Emelisse. 33 cl. bottle split by 3. Obtained from Hopduvel. Slightly hazy amber / orange with a white head. Nose very light orange, mainly grains, quite grainy, bitter floral, light flowers and marmalade. Taste is sadly less than I was hoping for, bitter grains, lots of them, they don’t really work for me, slightly floral with a hint of grass, bitter hay, barn, light yeast,… Light & grainy. I am not converted to this one, let us say.

3.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
bottle thnx to 77 ships ,
pours very clear, light blonde . good white head .
smell is exactly like the smell you get out of the mashing tank, when you start brewing a beer ( the malts ) . malts in a natural, ’herbal’ way , not like a a produced ( beer) scent .
taste is more of the same malts, but less intence. what a great smell !

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 330 ml, at home,poured into a pilsner glass. ABV 5%
Bright golden yellow colour on the body, lots and continuous activity in it. Big, almost three fingers tall head, thick and soapy, with excellent retention and heavy lacing left on the glass as it collapses slowly.
A bit difficult to get the aroma under this thick head, but it is a good combination of malts and hops.
Good bitterness from the beginnig, becomes more intense on the aftertaste, with good duration.
Body on the thin side, good carbonation.
Nice and refreshing pilsner.
