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 Citizens 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 nations capital. Become a Citizen of the world, one sip at a time!

JorisPPattyn (9878) - Ursel, - NOV 5, 2012
No head left, orange-ochre colour, fully hazy. Citrus, orangepeel and spicy, if restrained. Slightly sweet-bready, with a fruity rounding (citrus, melon). Bit of caramel, but with a (noble) hoppy edge. Warming up, meaty esters from the yeast. CO is very obvious. Medium bodied, yeastfeel. Nice, if not very consistent: the beer pulls in all directions, arriving not really anywhere.

BVery (10122) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - DEC 9, 2016
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.
