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.

Aroma: Peanut, vanilla, marshmallow, chocolate, caramel and biscuit.
Taste: Sweet, caramel, vanilla, marshmallow, chocolate and nuts.
Mouthfeel: Creamy, full to medium bodied with low carbonation and alcohol coming through.

Omnipollo x Buxton Original Lemon Meringue Ice Cream Pie

Brewery: Omnipollo x Buxton Brewery
Country: Sweden
ABV: 6%
Style: Fruit Beer
Other Notes: Brewed and bottled by Buxton Brewery & Omnipollo at Buxton Brewery

Brewer Description: (from website) This beer sits right between sour and sweet. In my mind it is the closest we’ve ever come to balance. Kettle-soured and brewed with added lactose, it is then conditioned on buckets of lemon juice. Perfect, like lemon meringue ice cream pie.

Intro: A 330ml bottle with a best before date of 25th October 2018. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.

Aroma: Sour, tart, extremely under ripe mango and lemon.
Taste: Sour, tangy, tart, juicy, lemon, orange and mango.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Although it seems quite simple as a sour beer with juicy fruitiness, it is also tasty and refreshing. I feel I could drink quite a few of these all day.
