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.

Hanoi (609) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2015
Bottle. Nose is powerfully citra, with lemon, lemon grass, pepper, some spice and yeast. The lemon is too much. The taste follows with the citra and lemon and lemon grass overpowering the beer, with grass, cellar, and spice following. It’s a shame but this is all lemon, and is not a great beer.

CloakedDagger (1164) - - MAY 20, 2015
Bottle 33 cl. Pours yellow with a slight haze and a lively, white head. Very unfortunate diacetyl aroma in the nose, overpowering the Citra. Medium body, soft on the palate, sulphurous, but I cannot get rid of that horrible diacetyl aroma. Ends dry. Could’ve been pleasant. 200515

Hazy golden color with big white head. Aroma of lemon peel, a bit funk, a bit peppery. Taste is fresh, earthy, peppery finish. Dry. Lower carbonation than expected. Lovely!

jdjuice (450) - Kumamoto, JAPAN - MAR 31, 2015
Pours cloudy straw gold with beautiful pillowy white head. Aromas are prominently fruity and citrusy. From the hops, the flavors are citrus with a bit of piney bitterness on the finish. A good amount of yeastiness, spice, a little thin maybe, but really quite a classy saison.

downender (6954) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2015
Bottle from Corks of Cotham, Bristol. Pale gold in colour, with a big, rocky, white head and slight carbonation. Sweet, perfumed, floral hop and Belgian yeast aroma with some wheaty grains. Sharp, lemon flavour with some tangerine, crisp malts and a dry, tingly finish. Very good.

mysland (75) - GERMANY - MAR 26, 2015
Flasche. Leicht trübe, schöne weiße Schaumkrone. Extremer Duft nach frischen Zitrusfrüchten (Limette, Zitrone, Yuzu). Frisches, leichtes Mundgefühl. Leichter Malzkörper, Zitrusaromen, bittere kommt schon recht früh.
