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.

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 (46) - 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.

biirusaikou (900) - - MAR 2, 2015
Nice pineapple, papaya aroma. Bready malt, exotic hops, juicy mandarin, touch of kiwi, quite floral and earthy, dry finish. Quite a surprisingly smooth british saison, fruity, exotic and very sessionable.

Draught @ Brewdog Helsinki. Aroma is quite citra; gooseberry bush, grapefruit and herbal tones. Also funky yeasty tones & fruits typical to saisons is in the background. Flavour has grassy hops, cereal, yeasty tones, some fruits and grapefruit. Refreshing and nice.

stefannilssons (1505) - SWEDEN - FEB 21, 2015
Tja, det här var rätt juste. Aromen inledde led toner av citrus och rengörningsmedel och smaken följde upp aromen på ett väntat sätt. Dock var kroppen alldeles för liten och balansen inte helt närvarande. Som sagt; rätt juste öl!

pyskaty_dawid (12) - POLAND - FEB 14, 2015
Very nice deep yellow colour. Cloudy. Head is small. Aroma - mainly spices, phenoles, some peaches, and citrus notes grom hops. Hop accent could be more intensive, but its fine. Medium body but definitely its not sweet beer. Very good bitter with grapefruit character. High carbonation but for saison is OK. In overall - refreshing beer with lots od flavours, mainly from yeasts and spices. I believe hop notes in aroma was more intensive just after bottling (mine was bottled 18.11.14)
