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.

Pours a hazy golden colour with a big creamy white head. Smells of citrusy hops and taste is a lasting bitterness.

Butelka, warka do 18/11/2015. jasne, zolte metne piwo, z przyjemna piana, ktora szybko redukuje sie do obraczki.Aromat zimnego to glownie typowe saisonowe nuty, glownie cytrynowe lub limonkowe, moze z echami brzoskwiniowymi (bardzo intensywne, byc moze zlozenie sie Citry i estrow), ziolowe, czuc pieprzowo-przyprawowe. im cieplejsze tym wiecej kolendry. troche tez nut ziemistych, zbozowych, bananowych i miodu. W smaku tej kolendry niszczesnej juz nie ma tak duzo, jest dosc intensywna kwaskowatosc, pieprzowosc, zbozowosc. WYsycenie srednie w strone niskiego, goryczka niska, alkoholu w smaku brak. Odswiezajace piwo i dobre, mimo kolendrowosci. Niemniej nie planuje powtorek.

Joakgust (985) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 24, 2015
Bottle. Hazy golden yellow beer with a large white head. Aroma is spicy with notes of citrus, blue berries, caramel and toffee. Flavor is spicy with notes of citrus, wheat, sour yeast and bananas. Too much diacetyl for the style.

ciaranc (1018) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 20, 2015
Bottle from Drinkstore. Hazy yellow, frothy white head. Unusual nose, basement must, lemon, zest and an earthy note too. Flavour has a spicy frontage, dry in the middle then hints of fruit, particularly grapefruit toward the finish. Light, fizzy with a sparkly mouthfeel, a little bitter in the finish. A really nice one.

KyotoLefty (6836) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 20, 2015
Bottle from Taniguchi. Nice citra lemon nose, light spice, Belgian yeast. Proper saison nose. Brilliant golden color, hazy, with a high, airy head. Great lemon favor. Lovely, biscuits, some herbs, maybe a touch too much spice. But very good. Crisp, tangy. Lovely body. Great saison. Good bitter finish. Dig it.
