Reviewed from notes. Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a Cycle Brewing goblet.

A: Hazy dark yellow with some gold highlights. A good amount of visible carbonation, and a half-finger of white head that fades away quickly.

S: Lemon - like Lemon Pledge - with wheat grist, lactic acidity, and light cracker malts. A touch of sweet lactose lingers behind.

T: Tart lemons that retain some of the artificial flavors hinted at by the nose. Lactic tartness, sweet lactose and vanilla, and cracker malts. A bitter-sour lemon rind flavor in the hang.

M: Light body, average carbonation sensation, and minimal alcohol presence.

O: A relatively simple beer…certainly not complex. A very light body that stops just short of watery. The artificial character of the lemon ruins this for me, and those flavors don't mesh with the lactose and vanilla like the actual pie does. Not offensive, but falls in the "Try if you must and move on" category.

Pours out a golden straw color with a foamy head that retreats to a few wisps of foam. Actually smells and tastes like lemon meringue pie! Talk about your truth in advertising. Excellent mouthfeel with perfect carbonation. This beer 100% lives up to the label. If you don't like lemon meringue pie get something else; if you do expect to be amazed!

Pours a clear yellow golden color with white head. This beer actually smells like lemon meringue pie, lots of lemony citrus with a vanilla sweetness on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes much of the same way.

I'm more than a bit underwhelmed. FB does so many exceptional beers, this disappoints, not in comparison, just as it is.
Typically golden color with a white head.
Smell is faint, overly subtle, nearly missing. Just a whiff of lemon & some grain.
Taste is just a basic golden/blond ale. Bit of malt, bit of grain. I wish there was more but, sorry, no.
Body is solidly medium.
