From Saveur Biere. In Teku glass. Playing Bloo Kid 2, then Oceanhorn. Delicious vanilla ice cream with lactose notes and a great feel. As expected, another extraordinarily original offering from omnipollo

Poured to a teku glass.

A: The body is yellow and crisp. The head is minimal but shows good retention.
S: A closer aroma shows a good hoppy and citrusy character. And a farther aroma shows a good and prominent profile of vanilla with a sugary touch. It really smells like a vanilla ice cream.
T: The taste begins with a citrusy touch of pineapple, resin and lemon bring followed with a hoppy flavour. After the sip, there's a delicate flavour of vanilla ice cream.
M: Body is medium. Carbonation is perfect. Bitterness is mildly high. The end of sip is very sweet due to the vanilla end.
O: It's a good APA with a power adjunct of vanilla ice cream. It's chemical witchcraft but it's very interesting.

Really hazy golden color, almost opaque, off-white head. Aroma is mostly fruity with tart, citrusy notes and slightly herbal. Taste is a combination of sweet wheat malt, lactose and earthy hop bitterness. Bittersweet hoppy finish. Medium body, really smooth on the palate but also well carbonated. Overall it's a really nice hoppy ale but don't be fooled by the ice cream name, it packs a bitter hop punch on the finish.

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.

Hazy dark blonde with sticky trailers. 3.75
Crazy cheap industrial vanilla ice cream nose. 4.25
Big biscuit, cloying vanilla, sickly creaminess, and slightly toasty biscuit end. 3.75
Creamy and round. 4

HB sliceable litre! And that’s the story: vaguely unpleasant notes that add up to something on concept and yummy. Flawed but compulsive. 3.75
