The problem is LR/ACR

I think I've found the problem.  I downloaded IDC from Sony website & did the conversion using the raw file you provided, i find the colours is so much richer & i think the lemon look is back

Attached is a comparison of the 2 files, left is with Sony IDC & right is your original post

I also took the liberty to apply my usual filmy tweak to see how it turns out, what do you think? I kind of like the deeper colours 

Adobe LR/ACR is really notorious for their bad colour rendering.  It simply substitute the hues with another colour.  I'll stay away from it as much as i can.  Although IDC is very clunky & slow, but IQ is the best.  After conversion then send it to Pshop or LR for tweaking, you'll be rewarded 

Speed is not everything


Edited: In IDC, i set WB 6300k, everything else is camera settings.  Also try turning down the exposure a little, you'll get back more colours
