COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Style: Saison
Recipe: Citra
ABV: 5.4%
The Citra Saison is BBNo.’s modern interpretation of a Belgian farmhouse-style classic. A light, crisp body, fresh fruit/spice flavour and a mild bitterness make this a very refreshing, drinkable beer.

johndoughty (4057) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2014
Bottle. Yellow and cloudy as a lot of their beers are. Fruitiness hits you full on. Not the most subtle of beers but very pleasant to drink. A winner.

Skummar bra. Luktar lite lantlikt. Lite smågrumlig. Bra balans i smaken, inte för humlig. Gillar.

jookos (2526) - FINLAND - NOV 14, 2014
Bottle. Pale yellow, hazy. Grapefruit green berry catpee on nose, very fruity with wheaty hay. Lightish, dry body. Quite refreshing. Pretty good really. A super fruity, but still sort of rustic saison. Pleases the hop head in me.

JefVerstraete (1524) - Ghent, BELGIUM - NOV 14, 2014
Bottle from bottle-shop.eu. Hazy golden colour, white foam. Too much carbonation. Aroma of lemon and orange, straw. Harsh bitterness. Not very well balanced. Maybe too old? (bottle was one year old).

_angst_ (2917) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 8, 2014
Bottle bought @ Systembolaget. Pours very hazy vibrant yellow with a frothy and slightly fizzy white head that leaves some sticky spotty trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is fruity and slightly phenolic with crackers, grapefruit, pineapple, passion fruit, star fruit, freshly harvested hay, oily pine cones, coriander, white pepper corns and lemon zest. Taste is bitter, slightly fruity and slightly phenolic with crackers, grapefruit, unripe pineapple, passion fruit, straw, dried pine needles, dry soil, minerals, pear skins, white pepper corns and lemon zest. Mouthfeel is crisp, dry, slightly astringent and light bodied. Finish is bitter, fruity and slightly phenolic with crackers, grapefruit, overripe tropical fruits, hay, dry soil, white pepper corns and lemon zest. Tasty way underrated saison.

Flaska från systembolaget. Ljusgul kulör med stort vitt skum. Fruktig doft. Grapefrukt och lite jordkällare. Mycket frisk och fräsch. Smak av passionsfrukt och grape. Skön strävhet och bra tryck i kolsyran.
