4.2/5  rDev +7.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 500 ml bottle

Pour is a beautiful hazy amber color with a ton of thick white head. Took a couple pours to get it all into a glass.

The nose has a lot of lemon juice and lemon zest on it with some citrusy hops coming through. Great smell Tons of lemon sharpness similar to fresh lemonade.

The taste is incredible and unlike anything I've ever had. Anyone thinking this will be like a shandy or some beer + juice hybrid will be mistaken. It has such an overwhelming amount of clean lemon flavor that has a great amount of sour/tart bite to it. The lemon takes the wheel in this beer with the sourness rides shotgun.

Mouthfeel starts with a big bite from the carbonation that just adds and compliments the taste so well.

Overall a very different and surprising beer that I've been waiting to try since I first got to try it at the Worthy Burger last fall. Drinking it I would never think it was 9.1%. Maybe the lemon sharpness covers it up but I thought it was in the 5%-6% range.

look: 3.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Reviewed from notes. Poured from 16.9 oz. bottle into a Russian River pint glass.

A: Hazy dark gold, with a one-finger white head that fades fast despite above-average levels of visible carbonation.

S: Big lemony tartness – fresh fruity rind. Plus light tangerine citrus and pilsner malts. But mostly lemon. Simple, but pretty nice and natural.

T: Lemony citric tartness, quite bitter/sour/tart that reminds of biting into fresh lemon. Light pilsner malts, a light wheat breadiness, and some hop bitterness in the hang...but most of the bitterness and sourness is during the body of the drink. Some citric acid burn after the swallow, and finishes fairly dry.

M: Medium tending towards a touch light body. Carbonation sensation on the low side, and the alcohol is well-hidden.

O: Wow…this has HUGE lemon flavor. I enjoy some citrus-forward beers and found this quite enjoyable. For those that don't look forward to that, this would probably best be avoided – there isn't much else going on. Not complex, nothing I'd always have around, but nicely enjoyable.

4.26/5  rDev +8.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A: Pours a hazed golden color with a thin bone white head. Some nice lacing after each sip.

S: Not exactly what I was expecting. Kind of musky lemon meringue pie aroma. The lemon is there, but it definitely seems muted a touch under some cream and barnyard aromas. Interesting for sure, but I don't know if I'm onboard just yet.

T: And now I'm onboard. This is awesome. Tons of lemon pulp an peel with a creamy sweetness in the middle that really mimics the texture of lemoncello. Finish brings a touch of bready malt, but just a shade, meringue and some bitter lemon zest. A touch I grassy hops in there somewhere as well. This is incredibly well made. I really enjoyed it.

The aroma offers sweet lemon candy along with syrupy sweetness.

The flavor tastes of lemon drops and almost towards Altoid tangerine candies. There's candy sweetness in the front along with lemon juice without the tartness. Then on the back, the beer slightly bitters off like a fruity IPA.

The brew is well balanced with that candy sweetness in the front, but without being cloying on the back.
