I recently had Provenance with Lemon and Lime from Jester King. This is a pretty good Farmhouse Ale that goes well with spicy food as well as an easy drinking crisp thirst quenching beer. I had it with spicy Indian food. However, if you want more flavor and bitterness it may not be right for you.

Look: yellow semi clear wit a one inch chalk white head

Aroma: lemon and lime, and tad yeasty funkiness

Taste: It's tart, and unsurprisingly lemon and lime, more lime than lemon, some yeasty funkiness.

Feel: light and crisp

Only my second from Jester King and I'm looking forward to more from this Texas iconoclast specializing -- and seemingly succeeding -- in their focus on the Belgian tradition. (So far, none are too sour for me.)

Looks like a really friendly ale with its large bubbles. But like most exuberant expressions, that recedes and I Smell a slight funky horse blanket and the lemon/lime. Wonderfully, not as sour as I expected. Citrus is not as subtle in the Taste (and I'd prefer subtly.) But, adding wheat smooths everything out. Citrus tang and bubbly texture make my mouth Feel refreshed.

Overall ? The lemon/lime actually worked against a too sweet tomato sauce (out of the bottle, not one I'd make.) So by serendipity, Provenance went well with dinner and cut the sweet. But then, the lemon/lime stole the final act.
I might try an orange rendition of Provenance's base... but lemon/lime gives me too much pucker.

Batch 3, drank at 1 year old. Bone dry feel, very lovely lime notes and a little mint on the back end as it warms. Was very surprised the lime was as prominent as it was. Great beer.

Sparkling gold with a super fluffy and bright white head leaving behind sheets of wavy lace on the glass.

Smell is lemon lime vanilla, kind of reminding me of Juicy Fruit gum, with a spicy funk, hay and grass.

Taste is a really complex farmhouse funk, with lemon and lime, pepper, dragon fruit, and a little bitter herb in the finish of this frothy medium bodied, crisp yet balanced brew.

What a perfect drink for an 80 degrees and sunny tailgate at Blossom before a Jack Johnson show.
