Part three of the Buxton and Omnipollo Ice Cream Series Collaboration and in the words of Monty Python, now for something completely different.

The Lemon Meringue Pie looks almost like a traditional farmhouse cider when poured; hazy orange with a little visible carbonation and no head to speak of.

It's aroma is dominated by the citrusy lemon fragrance, although you can still pick up the hops in there. The nose reminds me a little of the Beavertown Bloody Notorious Blood Orange DIPA.

It has an almost champagne mouth feel, with little bubbles covering your tongue with every sip.

On tasting, the sharp citrus gives you a right old smack in the face, like crunching down on a sherbert lemon. There is then a hint of resinous pine hops before that disappears behind a jaw tightening sour finish.

Sour beers are still a relatively new concept to me but this is a top beer (if you can really call it that!) and I'd definitely buy it again.
