I was a little bit afraid that this juice would be too lemony. Lemon is a tricky flavor to use, even in fruit cereal juices. But, they've pulled it off. You get the lemon flavor mixed in with the meringue. It balances both of the flavors, and prevents it from being too sweet, or sour. I'm not getting much pastry. So, it might need a longer steep time. But, the lemon meringue flavor is there, and tastes like a real pie. The juice isn't overpowering. In fact, it's rather subtle. I'm very glad I chose this juice. In spite of some rather unfavorable reviews, it is a solid, realistic flavor, and it's easy to vape this all day, without getting burned out on the flavor.
