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.

Joakgust (984) - 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 (1016) - 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 (6832) - 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.

Zekada (320) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - JAN 8, 2015
Bottle from systembolaget. Pours pale yellow with a medium white head. Aroma is crips and fresh with hops, fruits and citrus. Taste is a bit too hoppy and crisp for me, not really saison-like. Palate is stray. Overall a decent beer, though not really a saison. Wish for a more sleek and oily feeling and taste.
