White Balance Issue

I'm coming to the end of my trip around Europe and have had a weird color cast to all my photos.  Luckily I shot RAW and I can fix them, but I'm trying to figure out where the problem originated from.  I have a feeling the answer is obvious to somebody who's been doing this for a while, so here goes.

I've had a yellow color cast on the photos.  In trying to figure out where the problem started from, I decided to do some test shots in RAW + JPEG to see if they match up.  They do not.  I process my RAW files in Lightroom and they default to the "As Shot" white balance.  These shots look terrible.  If I switch to Lightroom's "Auto" setting, they almost always look fine again.  The test shots I did with JPEG look fine.  So it seems there's some problem in the message being sent from the A7 to Lightroom.  Any ideas?
