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.

EdKing (2322) - London, Greater London, - FEB 1, 2013
Bottle from Craft Brixton. Hazy yellow with an effervescent foamy head. Nose is phenomenal. Citrous lemony, Brett yeast, touch of farmyard, but a beautiful floral aroma of lavender and honeysuckle. Wow. Taste is crisp lemon, Brett yeast, bready, with a nice crisp sour saison finish. Very good beer.

wlf (179) - DENMARK - MAR 17, 2016
From Tap: unclear hazy golden, looks like unfiltered applejuice, weird metallic/tangy aroma dominates, not shure if this is meant to be there, light body with low to medium bitterness, some notes of pear and tropical fruits but metallic/tangy thing dominates the taste, some flavors of beer standing for too long as well, still not shure if the glass i got was ok, bartender told me it was...

cecedrake (30) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 17, 2016
Pours golden colour with a frothy light tan head. Aroma of hops, floral notes and spices. Smells like an IPA, tastes like a very light saison. Medium sweetness and medium bitterness. . Medium body, oily feel, qverage to soft carbonation and a medium bitter after taste. Good,but a bit too weak.

Grassy, spicey, banana sweet, a touch of hops. Lacks a dominant note, a bit bland even for a saison.
