Tap room - Tart lemon and nice vanilla. Cloudy gold with a decent white head. Lemon and vanilla with a touch of acidic heat. Nice. ffbot (433) - Oakland, California, USA - FEB 15, 2016
Pour is a slightly murky orange, tiny head that fades. Smell is citrus from dark places, smells like a rotting orange or a very perfumed lemon. Lime, vinegar, grapes and woody. Taste is heavily of lime, bitter, tart, biting. Very vinegar and honey, wood and sweet balance. Almost like a Kombucha JaBier (8156) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - FEB 14, 2016
Bottle shared by a friend. Clear amber pour with a thin white head. Aroma of vanilla, lime, malt and, for some reason, tequila. Malty flavor giving way to sour lime and creamy vanilla before a sour finish. FlacoAlto (4216) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JAN 31, 2016

A steady pour produces a one-finger thick, pale, off-white colored head that disappears fairly quickly. The beer is a pale honey / gold color that shows a clear, golden hue when held up directly to the light. The aroma smells of lactic acid, lime zest, lots of vanilla (which I wasn’t expecting), and has a touch of wholegrain, pale cracker / bread character that is noticeable at times.
Tart and sour up front, the finish starts out with a lime like note, but then it is a rounded, vanilla character that lingers in the finish with an almost slick coating to the palate in some ways. The beer is light bodied, fairly effervescent, and even refreshing if you like sour beers. The lime character becomes a bit more evident after a couple sips, and there is also a toasted, nutty character that lightly flavors this beer; the latter likely a contribution of the oak and pale malt.
Not bad, a bit interesting, but in the end a bit too simplistic to really keep me interested for long.
Bottle. Pale, hazy tangerine hue with merengue-like head. Aroma’s a dessert: rich vanilla bean, sugary lemon, shortbread, oak, gentle funk. The flavor’s a little overshadowed by intense tartness, but beneath the acid is a melange of vanilla, lemon peel and honey. These are traceable up front; the acidity hits like a grenade blast at the swallow and washes everything else out. An interesting beer, just one that’s difficult to drink much of.

Bottle:   Interesting beer, and very unique.   Zesty right up front, lemony, citrus peel, with a
huge vanilla bean background.   Its like a lambic as its tart and in some bits sour and even a bit lactic.
The backside reminds me a little of a creamcicle.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Has a darker straw
sort of color, with little head and nearly no lacing.   Finishes like a tart and sometimes sour creamcicle.
The lemon zest reminds me of the orange bits, and the vanilla bean reminds me of the ice cream.   Odd
beer, but it kinda works.   Thanks Rob! after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - OCT 4, 2015
750, capped. Thanks, J! Pours a hazy medium gold with a loose white head. Big tangy sweet nose, candy like, but not like any specific candy. Just sweet from the vanilla and showing some tanginess like a bard candy. Medium body with light carb. Tangy sweet body, way too much vanilla. Cloying sweet finish. madmitch76 (25305) - , Essex, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2015

Lightly hazy gold beer, bubbly white head. Palate is light, dry and crisp. Sour lemon. never acid, sour orange. Homemade lemonade. Nice vanilla sweetness on the back end and it tempers the sourness. Dry finish. Simple stuff but it works very well, the vanilla really keeps it drinkable.
Hazy orange pour with a white head. The aroma is a mix of peaches and lemons. Smells a bit like a snow cone. The flavor is a bit different. In addition to the big lemon notes I get some nice cinnamon and vanilla, as well as some sweet toffee. Light tartness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. fluffy (2472) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - JUL 23, 2015
Aroma is amazing, lemon and a lot of vanilla. Flavor is limoncello with vanilla added. Crisp and light and dessert like. Want another bottle!
