Intro: A 330ml bottle with a best before date of 12th December 2018. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A hazy purple red (near beetroot) colour with a one finger pinkish head that had decent retention, but left only sparse lacing.
Aroma: Creamy, vanilla ice cream, milk candy, lactose, sweet and very lightly tart blueberry.
Taste: Sweet and tart blueberry, lightly sour, vanilla ice cream with a light caramel nuttiness on the finish.
Mouthfeel: Creamy, medium to light bodied with moderate to low carbonation.
Overall: This was interesting with its blueberry and vanilla ice cream flavours. But I think the raspberry version was better and more balanced.

Evil Twin x Omnipollo Old Fashioned Lemonade IPA

Brewery: Evil Twin Brewing x Omnipollo
Country: USA
ABV: 7%
Style: American IPA
Other Notes: India Pale Ale with lemon added. Brewed for Evil Twin Brewing by Dorchester Brewing Company

Brewer Description: (from can) A refreshing drink often associated with childhood nostalgia to others a pop-cultural symbol of emancipation. Whatever the association we teamed up with good old Swedes, Henok and Karl of the fashionable Omnipollo to squeeze out a tasty, tempting and deceivingly well balanced IPA with sweet and sour notes of old fashioned memories. Perhaps you can taste the dishonesty, it’s all over your breath – it’s Lemonade.

Intro: A 330ml bottle with a best before date of 7th July 2020. Poured into a snifter.
Appearance: It was black in colour with a half finger mocha head that dissipates quickly while leaving some sparse lacing.
Aroma: Chocolate, pecan, caramel and whisky with hints of vanilla and cognac.
Taste: Sweet milk chocolate with a nice pecan nuttiness. There are also hints of oak, cognac and peat.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied with moderate to low carbonation.
Overall: This particular bottle was nice and tasty, but I don’t think that the barrels improved the base beer. It should be noted that this beer has had it’s share of infection. This is my third bottle now, of which I’ve had two good and one infected. The infected bottle clearly tasted sour and was just not pleasant to drink. You will know if you have an infected bottle, so I guess it’s a bit of the luck of the draw at this point.

Intro: A 330ml bottle with a best before date of 25th December 2018. Poured into a d’Achouffe tulip glass.
Appearance: A cloudy purplish red colour with a one finger pinkish head that dissipated quite quickly while leaving some lacing.
Aroma: Cherry, raspberry, lactose and yoghurt.
Taste: A bit light, but its sweet and sour cherry with a light hint of yoghurt.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: I liked the aroma, but its taste was slightly on the watery side, yet surprisingly medium bodied. Having said that, it definitely grew on me the more I drank it. I would get this again.
