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 into Teku glass. Nice fat fluffy white head, pretty pale/golden hazy colour (i brought the sediment through the pour rather than leaving in the glass - which may in hindsight alter the flavour). I get coriander on the aroma front, beautiful opening up in taste and palate, citra, yeasty, vibrant, lemon flavour. Really, very surprising and very lovely Saison.....picture a perfect spring day with flowers in the field, laying on a blanket with your lady (or in my case, holed up in a two bed flat in grimy London, with the rain pouring outside and the cat doing her best to annoy seven level of shit out of me :-). Seriously, very nice interpretation.

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

Niall73 (1053) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2014
Bottled 18/09/13, from Market Row Wines. Quite a lively pour resulting in slightly hazy gold beer with fine visible carbonation and a large white head. The aroma is there as soon as the first drop leaves the bottle - slightly spicy, white wine, lychee, distant funk, yeast. Light body, full fine carbonation. Crisp, with white wine, apple, mild spice, lemon, tangerine with a medium, fairly dry, bitter finish. Nice.

330ml bottle from Ales By Mail

Long time no see Saison. Beautiful big white foam like it should be, light clear look. Fresh fruit aroma. Easy to drink. Good light bitterness at taste. I like a lot !
