This very pale yellow bottle pour holds a thin foam head and an aroma of lemon with acidity and tartness. The aroma does “pop.” The flavor matches the nose. The tartness is significant, but allows fruit and some lemongrass notes through.
The finish is somewhat dry. This is a refreshing brew.

Bottled in October 2017.
Look: Light yellow in color, with cloudy complexity. 1 fingers worth of head from a simple pour. Minimal lacing.
Smell: Bright lemon smells, with some orange and tangerine. The lemongrass gives an apparent lemon-dominant smell, which is pleasant.
Taste: Full of the lemongrass flavors, compiling the lemon acidity with some nice grassy/herbal notes as well.
Feel: Light in weight and in body. Low-ish carbonation. Very easy drinking.
Overall: Another easy drinking offering from the Pop! series. I enjoyed this one, and I am grateful to have tried. Cheers!

Cloudy yellow pour with a white head. Sour fruit aroma. Bright and juicy fruit flavor with a hint of tartness. Lemon, pineapple and orange flavors strand out strongest but can also taste a hint of vanilla. Finishes with just a touch of orange peel bitterness.

Bottle. Pretty cool. The bright tartness mixes very well with the milky/lactose/vanilla elements in a way that I wasn't certain would work. The nose is pleasant but the flavor really does "Pop!". I would try others in this line of beers.

this is exactly the kind of beer i want to not like. dessert berliner with milk sugar and vanilla? come on, that sounds like a gimmick and has to be gross right? wrong, its absolutely delicious, a guilty pleasure for sure for a beer nerd like myself, but man, its hard to not think this is awesome. soft hazy yellow color, almost artificial looking, unnatural yellow, pretty though and very inviting. several observations here... one... lemongrass always seems to be used in conjunction with other, more strongly flavored or heavily dosed additives and fruits, its awesome to taste it in relative isolation here, its fresh and bright and gorgeous in a light berliner like this. two... lemongrass also lends itself really well to the sweetness here and the vanilla, i have never thought of it in a dessert context before. three... the milk sugar isnt too much, and while this would be just as good without it, its impact on the mouthfeel is tremendous. creamy isnt a word we normally associate with the berliner style, but this one is, and its awesome. there is more than enough sourness here preventing it from making the beer sweet. four... the vanilla is strong here but tasteful, and also really does work with the acidity, despite my preconceived notions. insane layers of flavor here for such a light beer, lemon and lemongrass sing and make it fresh, its so satisfying. i didnt expect to like this, but boy do i! grimm keeps impressing me...

Bought a bottle at Ryan and Caseys in Greenfield. The beer pours with a lightly murky yellow appearance and no head. Great lemon zest with some vanilla florals in the aromas. Bitter with a lemon-orange aftertaste. Very carbonated and crisp. Overall, this was a great and refreshing beer, especially with its aromas and mouthfeel.
