On draft. Very different mixed yeast beer. Very barnyard funky in a different way, with the lemon kind of clashing with the yeast in a not necessarily bad way. Not at all what I expected and certainly not for everyone. I enjoyed this beer.

I've had this on tap and fresh from growler, its an interesting beer but i think the lemon juice takes away from the better base beer and blend of yeasts. That said here is my review:

Poured into an imperial pint glass from growler, color is straw, head is white but dissipates to nothing quickly.

Smell is lemon juice and hints of lemon rind, subtle off yeast/bretty character but not sure it works with the strong lemon presence.

Taste is close to a radler if you used lemon juice instead of soda, the sour lemon is strong and the beer qualities heavily subdued. I get hints of brett and malt but the finish is tart and harsh...

...leading to a mouthfeel that is sharp, bitter and tart; really strong on the tongue and really hard to say it is enjoyable.

Overall, a sub-par beer from the Bullfrog - the fruit heavy beer line-up is becoming a drag on beer variety and this beer typifies that example.
