King_Alex_II (333) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 12, 2014
Dark orange color. Citrus and a lot of hops in the taste. The result is a fruity dry bitterness. Very nice saison with slightly too much carbonation.

SinH4 (614) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 11, 2014
Orange color with small head. Aroma is sweet and aroma hops, the citra really does its job. Taste is dry and refreshing, sweet and spicy, and with a bitter finish. A really really good one! I’ve grown to love Saisons with aroma hops.

ThirstyBird (1961) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - JUN 4, 2014
Pours a hazy light yellow with a nice white head. The smell is spice, citrus, grain, light malt. The taste is spicy, grainy with citrus ending very dry. The body is light with active fine carbonation. Pretty nice stuff.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2014 50cl bottle courtesy of embrouille@Freiburger 1st Tri-state Tasting 2014, vielen Dank! A Citra dryhopped saison was long on my list of imagined ideal style combinations, as they’re not as easy to come by in BE or EU, for that matter. Initial bonus O-points for that, as well as for appealing label design. Pours a beige-inflected, saison-style straw with generous head. Has both citrus rind, pineapple and brett in the nose, marking its trademark from the onset. Off to a somewhat rougher start: quite a powerful, white pepper and dry pale malt start, very reminiscent of Duvel Citra, making the first sip feel heavier than its 6.1%. Yeast dryness remains, making for easier, quenching drinking. Citrus, straw and gentler white pepper remain until the dry end. Spot on Citra-dryhopped saison, maybe lacking that last extra of world-class finesse of e.g. De la Senne’s dryhopped saison variations.

redayyon (25) - - MAY 15, 2014
Belle couleur. Mousse fine, persistante. Nez de levure équilibrée par le houblon. Agrume pain frais. Gout agrume, fruit a noyaux et touche finale de levure. Arrière bouche moins agréable mais franche. Equilibre bon mais manque un peu d homogeneite entre le citra et la levure

joergen (22429) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2014
Draught at Ølbutikken. Hazy golden colored with a small white head. Fruity aroma of hops, citrus peel, spices and bubble gum. Fruity flavor of hops, pine needles, citrus and spices. Dry hoppy finish.
