3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On cask at Meridian Pint. Pours a dark gold with some spitty, white head. Very herbal nose, floral, apple compote, spiced pear. Flavor has a ton of spiced pear, apple compote, herbal, clove. Clean finish. Solid treatment. I think Citizen is a great base beer for experimental treatments like this.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Gravity cask. My favorite of the night at Meridian Pint. Nimbleprop said it best - Citizen just accepts anything you put in the cask, it just works. This one smelled like my grandmother (on my mother’s side) - in a good way, of course. Taste is floral perfume, citrus, subtle spice. Very tasty.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask at Meridian Pint. Poured a slightly hazy orange color. Aroma was notes of light flower-like soaps (not soapy). Flavor was light floral notes, lavender notes. Pretty good!
