COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is an awesome collaboration with Mikkeller and Hill Farmstead. It will mess with your mind as an IPA designed to mimic Limoncello. A slightly sour mash, combined with Lactose for sweetness, tonnes of lemon Zest and hopped to death with Sorachi Ace and Citra.

33 cl bottle. Pours hazy golden with small white head. Floral / citrus notes in aroma. Strong sour citrus flavor and finish. Some dry / clay notes from hops. Nice brew to counter full bodied strong ales / stouts with. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The beer taste a lot more of lemon then I expecter. The beer has a foggy look to it. I would not buy this beer again, but it's not a complete waste

Zekada (47) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - JUN 28, 2014
Bottle from systembolaget. Smell of hops, flowers and citrus. It also has a sour aroma. Pours hazy almost cloudy golden with a medium white head. The taste strongly reminds of a sour beer and although the high ABV it’s surpringsingly mild in tatse. The palate is thin, but it last quite a while.

TheJestersBeer (2032) - SWEDEN - JUN 28, 2014
330ml bottle. Pours a medium gold, with a white head. Citrusy, tart aroma, lemon zest, resin, slightly sour/funky, malt, lime, grass, rhubarb. Dry, medium body and bitterness, balanced CO2. Sour, tart, lemony taste, grass, hops, resin, rhubarb, malt, a faint salty tinge (?), gooseberry. Quite refreshing, but I don't understand the need for the high ABV, it doesn't seem to add anything to the beer. (2014-06-28) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cloudy amber color. Small head. Aroma and taste are both full of citrus and hops. Sour and bitter, not my favourite.

Frovigalning (2884) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle from Systembolaget. A fair amount of bottom sediment so keep this standing in the fridge. Hoppy smell with lots of citrus, some dill in the background but citrus is dominant. The taste is dominated with what I recognize as lemonjuice, or limejuice. Fairly tart with a strong citrus aroma and some dill. This is just too much for me. The citrus is overpowering.
