Buxton / Omnipollo Lemon Meringue Ice Cream Pie 4.0  
Buxton Buxton, Derbyshire
Keg at The Pint Shop, Oxford. Cloudy orange with white head. It doesn’t look great, quite murky, but wow; the flavour is incredible, fizzed, frothy lemony notes, juicy with a hint of seasonal sourness. There is a background vanilla note, some sweetness. The flavour continues throughout, constantly challenging and clearing the palate. Lovely. imdownthepub

Schneider Weisse Tap X Mein Cuvée Barrique 4.1  Wonderfully complex beer. Flavors from a weizenbock are still there, but the time spent in barrels gives additional flavors from the wood and a light sourness making it resemble a Gueuze as well. Loving it! langeveld12

De Garde Raz Premiere 4.0  
De Garde Brewing Tillamook, Oregon
(750ml bottle) pretty cloudy pink body, fine white bubbles. Nose of fresh raspberries and seeds, lacto, pedio. Taste of fresh raspberries, fairly aggressive on the tartness, lacto, yogurt, not vinegary at all but just a ridiculous tart finish that takes away a bit. Nice beer. thirdeye11

Modern Times City of the Dead 3.8  
Modern Times Beer San Diego, California
22oz bottle. Pours a rich black. Decent foam. Smells of a BBA beer, but taste is different. You get vanilla, coffee, toffee, and cocoa on the nose. At first taste, you’re thinking BBA. Nice warm mouthfeel, but then it bounces into a bright invigorating stout. Great beer! Oaklandbeerguy

Tired Hands Communication is the Key Lime Pie 4.1  
Tired Hands Brewing Company Ardmore, Pennsylvania
Pours hazy golden orange with a one finger white head with nice lacing. Aroma is of lime, citrus, tropical fruits, bready biscuit malts, light sweet malts, and some light vanilla. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma. Has a medium body with a creamy, velvety mouthfeel and a semi dry,semi bitter, long finish. Overall, a excellent APA that actully kinda of tastes like a key lime pine. skmikeg

Knee Deep Breaking Bud IPA 3.8

Hazy light tan. Frothy head. Grapefruity, orangey nose...big aromatics, very appetizing. Sweet pale malts, lots of bright orangey-tangerine hops. Good brew. Oakes

Hill Farmstead Flora - Plum 4.5  
Hill Farmstead Brewery Greensboro, Vermont
Bottle. Hazy with a small white head that fades. Delicate plum fruit expression is amazingly in balance with wild yeast acidity. Nose and flavor exist in beautiful harmony. Happy Zwanze Day indeed. TURDFERGUSON

Brasserie Auval Brewing Co. Val d’Espoir, Quebec

Thanks slovaksniper for this! Cloudy yellow body, lasting creamy white head and nice lacing. Really great aroma of resin, pineapple, grapefruit.
