Growler filled earlier in the day. Poured into tulip.

A: Pours a slightly hazy powdery lemon color with a bright white head that fizzed away into a fuzzy collar leaving wispy lace down the glass.
S: The lemon is bright and fresh, and it smells like fresh lemons still on the tree mixed with sweet and tart lemon drops. Green tea is more subtle but definitely noticeable and it adds some characteristic earthy, leafy quality.
T: Follows the nose with tart lemon peel up front, followed by a notes of green tea. The finish has a kick of lemon zest and sour lemon juice, and the aftertaste is quick with some lingering acidic tartness and oak and tea tannins.
M: Medium-full body, frothy carbonation but tingly with tiny tight bubbles. Tart, fresh, and refreshing mouthfeel.
O: Crisp and refreshing, clean and tart. Lemon is bright, juicy, sweet and tart, and the green tea is flavorful but could be a bit more pronounced. Well done overall though.

Reviewed from notes. Growler shared by Richard (?) - thanks.

A: Pours a clear yellow with a thin (1/4") white head which faded quickly to the rim and left a few spots of lace.

N: Green matcha tea, lemony, funk and sourness.

T: Mildly acidic lemon juice and zest, green tea, damp earth, funk pervades.

M: Semi-moderate body and light carbonation. Bright citrus and tart finish.

O: Very good and invigorating.
