A 330ml bottle with a BB of Oct 2018. Purchased a while back from the Brewdog webshop. A collaborative brew between Omnipollo and Buxton; brewed at the Buxton brewery. The ingredients include lactose - I presume the idea is that it will resemble a lemon meringue.

A: Poured into a large tulip. Bottle conditioned. A rich, hazy amber hue with fine suspended sediment and modest carbonation. Yields a decent head of white foam that rapidly settles and dissipates.

S: Aroma of tart lemon with hints of lemon rind, zest, sourness and subtle earthiness. Remarkably focussed, with no malt or hop character muddying the water. Very nice.

T: Tastes of sour lemon with notes of lemon peel, zest, citric acid, mild lactose sweetness, earthiness and a twinge of malt. Definitely on the sour side, though the lactose provides a degree of balance. No bitterness to speak of.

M: Mouthfeel is smooth, tingly and dry, with prickly carbonation and good body. Pretty astringent; the acidity dries the palate. Aftertaste of sharp lemon, rind, mild sweetness and earthiness.

O: Superb - an incredible beer facsimile of a lemon meringue pie. Looks good, while the aroma and flavour are fantastically sour and lemony. Great body. An excellent flavour combination with lovely balance. Very drinkable and a must for sour beer fans. Seek it out.

Quite remarkable from these magician breweries.

Murky pale color with creamy, white head. Aroma is lemony and lactic with some herbal hop notes. Taste starts sweet-sour with lemon notes, continues with hop notes and lingers on the aftertaste with tart lemon and just a hint of hop bitterness. Medium body and carbonation, really dry on the finish and aftertaste. Overall it's an interesting combination of a berliner weisse and a pale ale.

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.

This one is actually very (and disappointingly) close to the goses Omnipollo does. It's very sour but without the saltiness. It's nowhere near sweet enough and doesn't remind me of any pie of any kind. It's just sour. It's thicker than a gose though. The smell is nice, but linear, on the lemons. Omnipollo is all about balance. But this is too sour, there is no sweetness to balance it out. There's also barely any foam.

White head. Lace. Hazy yellow color. On tap at the hatt.

Smells just like the pie! Tastes of pie crump and lemon with a light tartness. Minimal sourness, but a nice lemon head tart. Not over powering.

Light bodied. Ends clean. Very enjoyable.
