My rating: 3
My beeradvocate.com rating: 3.81
My ratebeer.com rating: 3.7

Intro: A 330ml bottle with a best before date of 25th October 2021. Poured into a snifter glass.
Appearance: Dark brown in colour with only a very thin brown head that dissipated almost immediately and left sparse to no lacing.
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.
Overall: This was nice, but not quite as good as Texas Pecan Ice Cream. I thought that perhaps there was just a bit too much caramel in the flavour.

Omnipollo x Buxton 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.
Appearance: A hazy yellow and lightly orange colour with a half finger white head that dissipated quickly and had sparse to no lacing.
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.

Omnipollo x Buxton Ice Cream Pale Ale

Brewery: Omnipollo x Buxton Brewery
Country: Sweden
ABV: 5.6%
Style: American Pale Ale
Other Notes: Brewed and bottled by Buxton Brewery & Omnipollo at Buxton Brewery

Brewer Description: (from website) This is the Original Ice Cream. Brewed with heaps of malted oats and conditioned on one vanilla bean in two liters of beer the sensation of vanilla ice cream is unmistakable. Never stop dreaming.

My rating: 3
My beeradvocate.com rating: 3.69
My ratebeer.com rating: 3.6

Intro: A 330ml bottle with a best before date of 25th October 2018. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A hazy pale golden orange colour with a two finger white head that had pretty good retention and left lots of nice lacing.
Aroma: Vanilla, orange, lemon peel and stone fruit.
Taste: Biscuit malt, sweet orange, vanilla and cream soda with a touch of hop bitterness and pepper spice.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: I think they pretty much delivered on what was stated. There was definitely some vanilla ice cream taste, but it also wasn’t the best vanilla ice cream I’ve tasted. At the same time, I’m also not so sure vanilla matches well with a Pale Ale.

My rating: 5
My beeradvocate.com rating: 4.52
My ratebeer.com rating: 4.3

Intro: A 330ml bottle with a best before date of 18th July 2015 and poured into a Duvel tulip glass.
Appearance: The beer poured a hazy straw golden colour with a very small white head that dissipates quickly.
Aroma: Starts with sour lime and raspberries with hints of grapefruit and a strong peach finish.
Taste: Strong sour notes, mainly of tart lime and lemon but also some grapefruit. Followed by tropical fruit flavours of mango and peaches.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied, strong carbonation, dry, crisp.
Overall: This exceeded my expectations by far and I wish I could buy this again. But as a limited brew and seemingly out of stock in Hong Kong, I fear I may not find this again.
