COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Citizen can best be summed up as "a trip around the world in a can". We start off with our classic recipe that contains American and British hops, and pair them with a distinctive Belgian yeast for a taste that brings together a little bit of everywhere. The Citizen’s nose is of delicate yet floral hops, becoming more fragrant as it warms. This, along side a sweet malt finish, strikes a wonderfully drinkable balance that will bring you all the way back to our nation’s capital. Become a Citizen of the world, one sip at a time!

Gold pour, small white head. Floral, fruity aroma, with notes of banana, yeast, dough. Flavor is similarly fruity, but with a metalic/bloody finish. Weak.

Tap at Washington Pour Bar near gate 45 at DCA airport. Clear gold pour with minor head. Pretty ugly actually. Looks like that morning forced pee when you are dehydrated from boostin last night. Belgian yeast, floral, candied sugar, and just the smallest hint of rotten veggies. Not worth $12 a glass at the airport, for sure.

At a tasting, thanks, almost no head, lightly hazy lightish orange color, biscuity, candy, vanila aroma, with just a hint of flowers and yeast, soapy flowery flavor, with fruity maltiness, light sourness, quite smooth. Nice but not that great.

brownaler (663) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - OCT 28, 2016
Floral Belgian malt aroma with a crystal mouthfeel in the body. A bit of hops and a satisfying beer.

Can sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks Alon. Slightly hazy yellow. Aroma is a bit oxidized, with fruitiness, a bit of cardboard, a bit of spiciness. Sweetish spicy and fruity flavor with cardboard, citrus, bitterish finish.

Golden color with a white head. Strong floral and spiced Belgian yeast aroma and taste. To me a typical American take on Belgian beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JPDIPSO (6223) - Wauwatosa, USA - AUG 10, 2016
Somewhat cloudy amber body, modest sized off-white head. Aromas are sweet with quite a few fruits including oranges, bananas, mango and peach. Some spiced cookie scents as well. Sweeter start leading to citrus, light banana, and mild spice. A late return of grains and bread. A touch thin in feel. A light Belgian ale.

It’s OK. It’s somewhere inbetween a Belgian and a pale ale...it’s a bit thin, though. Has a decent aroma, thin middle, and ends with a touch of the yeast that you’d expect. Overall, better than macro, but not being sought out again.
