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.

Lemony pale colour. This is a refreshing saison for a hot summer day with the Belgium yeast adding flavour but not in an overwhelming way. One of the best saisons I have had! Rated by BrewTom

Hanoi (618) - 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 (1194) - - 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
