Ober (2807) - Bommelerwaard, - MAY 12, 2013
A clear golden colored beer, with a thick foamy white head. The aroma of fruits like citrus with some orange with hop notes. The taste is fruity like citrus a little nettle and some hop. The aftertaste is sweet with some hop notes. It’s not that hoppy as the name suggests.

De variant op de gewone hopus is me niet bevallen. grootte schuimkraag en mooie kleur maar een uitgesproken smaak die ik niet zo lekker vondt.

Grzesiek79 (3148) - Radom, POLAND - MAY 20, 2014
Bardzo bardzo dobre bogato smakowe piwo. Tresciwe, slodowe i chmielne. Aromatyczne juz po wystrzeleniu porcelanki hucznym glosem i po srogim dymku do mojego nosa dotarl zapach swiezego chmielu cytrusowego, wiec pewnie ta Citra. W smaku slodowosc sie nieco oclania, a po przelknieciu mila goryczka ktora jest dloga i wyrazna. Piwo metnawe zlotawe i o pieknej borzliwej pianie bardzo trwalej wielkiej i slimakowej. Podczas degustacji niewielki smak alkoholowej nuty sie wdal ale chmielna gorycz zaraz to tlamsila.

Golden color, huge white head. Musty, grainy aroma. Medium-bodied. Overriped lychee, peach and grain. Not very fresh. Sticky sweet and papery. Citra almost unexistent.

found a bottle, shared it, poured a hazy amber colour with a big white head. hop profile is getting very weak, sweet taste, weird aftertaste, more like a barley wine. bollte says best befor 02-2015. but i think they should move that date till ’14

flip_soeperman (565) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 21, 2014
Citra is very obvious in the aroma, which makes it quite nice, however the taste is bitter, with some sweetness, however there is not a clean yeast character which makes it muddy.

Has different hops than the original and tastes a bit more bitter and sharp. Nice as well.

Pas aussi "hoppée" que son nom ne le laisserait supposer, mais ça reste une option agréable.
