I'm not sure, but it may be because the calcium carbonate is a base, and therefore it neutralises the citric acid in the lemon juice (which makes the lemon juice taste sour). The rapid release of CO2 (a product of the neutralisation)has caused the fizzing, and a salt (calcium citrate) is formed. It is often removed and added to sulphuric acid to make sweets.

the citric acid makes it sour
