Pours a deep golden orange with a sticky white head.

Aroma is citrus and a touch of lychee from dem Citras. Nice. Slight caramel peeks in. I'm thankful it's a light malt character.

Flavor is a little thin but comes with bigger hop flavor and a light malt backbone.

Light in the tongue with low bitterness. What you would expect from a lightweight beer.

A pretty good light hoppy beer.

Hazy amber color with a thick off-white head with good retention.
Delicious sweet aroma of caramel, bread, mango and overripe oranges and pineapples.
Flavor of Belgian yeast, lemon, tangerines, Citra hops, peaches, white grapes, bready malt and brown sugar.
Hints of tea bags. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Medium body with good carbonation.
A fruity and citric Belgian IPA neither American nor English) with a superb aroma and good complexity.

On draft at In De Wildeman, appearence is hazy dirty blonde with sicky, foamy head, white sand colored.

Smell is modestly hoppy citrus.

Taste is bready malt with soft hop citrus flavor.

Mouthfeel is on the lighter, slippery side.

Drinkability is good, solid session ale, but I wouldn't go out of my way to find it.

A: 1" foamy cream coloured head over murky amber liquid.

S: Lime rind, apricot, peach.

T: Watery malt back bone that underpins a hop presence with lime rind, lemon and apricots.

M: Watery and thin viscosity and a medium level of fine carbonation.

O: I have never tried a single hop citra beer before to my knowledge and as a brewer this was a good lesson in its characteristics.

Bottled on 22 Januari 2013.

A gold to light amber beer with haze, white head, reasonable lacing

This smells much more fruity than the To Øl Reparationsbajer that I had a few days ago. So that one has to be older. Never had anything with citra before as far as I know.
This smells nice and fruity with tropical fruits. Much less citrus than other American varieties though. Smells nice. The maltiness is quite light I think. Not strange, it only contains pale and some caramel malts. Only a tiny hint of pine.

The taste as it is is still cold is of light tropical fruits with quite some bitterness. Only a light, slighty bready maltiness. This is a beer to showcase the hop, not the malt so this is understandable.

As it warms the nice fruitiness comes out more.

Mouthfeel is quite thin, with plenty of carbonation.

Overall a pleasant little beer!
Highly drinkable at 4.8% and quite refreshing! A nice beer for summer for sure.
