On tap at the brewery. Served in a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy yellowish orange. No head.

Smell - Straight lemon aroma. A little bit of that TheraFlu aroma that FB berliners have.

Taste - Strong lemon acidity. Grainy wheat. Slight bit of caramelized sweetness. Weird herbal character that all FB berliners have, although the lemon masks it better.

Mouthfeel - Pretty sour. Light body with medium carbonation.

Overall - These are always good up front, but never good in the finish.

On tap served in a sampler shot glass

A - Clear pale wheat with 1 finger white head with moderate retention and moderate lacing

S - LEMONS! Bit of vanilla

T - Extremely tart snappy lemons that almost make my lips pucker. Sweet and creamy, nice effort to get close to that meringue inspiration. I love how unabashedly strong the flavor is but we need something here to balance the beer just a tap more. Really enjoyed it though not the best balance in the world it is just fun.

M - Light body, moderate carbonation. Crisp.

O - I really couldn't stand to drink too much of this beer, but I really enjoyed what I tried and think it would make a nice spring dessert beer, maybe with some fish to really compliment how ridiculously tart those lemons are.

Leftovers from Funky Buddha's 2 year anniversary. Glad to see this one up on the chalk board

A: Pours a murky gold color. No head

S: As close to lemon meringue as possible. Tons and tons of sweet and sour lemon, notes of whipped cream, and even a little graham cracker. Definitely gonna be tart

T: See above and add some super sourness. Not quite as delicious as passion fruit but a delicious novelty beer for sure. Definitely a refreshing change of pace from your everyday Berliner

MF/O: Smooth carbonation, easy drinking and low ABV. Finish is sour lemon with meringue.

On tap at Funky Buddha.
It looks like a watery piss...with a decent head.
Smells really good; like key lime with a bit of cinnimon and vanilla.
Taste bitter as hell...kind of like a warhead - with a bit of cinnamon. Not enjoyable at all. Lemony gross...
I'm glad this was a sampler cuse I'd be pissed if I had to pay for this.
