Ick. Oh no they didn't.

Pours an odd amber hue that is mildly fogged. Soapy nose. Really soapy flavor profile. Candy sweetness which is just not pleasant. I don't like this beer. I don't like it at all.

Too bad I have to end my DC Brau sampling on this one. I'd rather have passed.

12 oz can into a pint glass.

A: Pours a hazy amber color with some notable yeast sediment falling to the bottom of the glass. The white-colored head forms a uniform height of one finger, and fades pretty rapidly to a thin film. Lacing is very sparse.

S: Rather buttery and even a bit corn-like. Maybe I can find a touch of fruity esters with proper concentration, but the Belgian yeast qualities are just too hard to find. There seems to be a bit of hoppiness, though, which is good. Quite the disappointing aroma otherwise.

T: Good news is, there is a touch of Belgian yeast on the finish, giving it a (much needed) crisp touch, and some welcome notes of apple, white grape, and pear - but also gives a faint soapiness. Yikes. All told, this seems rather disjointed, as if the yeast and the bready malts are battling each other, rather then melding like a good BPA should.

M: This is the best part of the brew. It features a creamy texture, and is nicely clean/dry on the back end without over-exposing any of the less-than-great flavors. In spite of its slight syrupiness and medium-heavy body, it's pretty drinkable.

O: Not great, unfortunately. There's little here to make me want to come back for seconds. All this does is confirm my skepticism toward canned Belgian-style ales - without bottle conditioning, what do you have? Not much, really.

12oz can poured into a DC Brau Can Glass.

The beer pours a golden corn color, very hazy with lots of bubbles rising to the top of the glass. Atop the beer rests a lovely, soapy, white head, about 2 fingers high that has fantastic retention and leaves some spotted lacing behind. The aroma is heavy on banana, more banana, and some more after that. Yeasty clove and spicey hop are noticeable with lots of pale grain sweetness. The amount of banana is a bit off putting and really masks the rest of the aromas. The flavors aren't much different, lots of banana, clove, belgian yeast, a bit of an unpleasant saltiness, alcohol, pale grain, earthy hop spice, sugary sweetness at the finish. The nose was a mess and the flavors are just as messy and poorly put together. The body is thin, a bit watery, lacking lively carbonation, coats the mouth moderately well and has a soft, creamy finish.

Verdict: A pretty poor attempt at a Belgian Pale Ale from DC Brau. It has bad balance, lots of unpleasantries, and has few redeeming qualities. While I enjoy their hoppy beers, I might be staying away from their Belgian beers until further notice.

Kmccabe33 hooked me up with this one... Very cool trade.. thanks Korey!! Poured into my slim tulip decent off white head with okay lacing.. the brew looks like apricot nectar... cloudy hazy golden.

Funny.. because the brew also smells like apricot nectar.. the Belgian esters do a number with the residual maltiness and become a mess... toooo sweet and sorta foul fruitiness erupts from the glass.

Flavor thankfully is a little better, still an abundant overpowering fruity ester profile is too much.

Body is too thick for anything "Belgian".. carbonation is a touch light too...

I just don't like this one... I see the continental influences.. but they are waaay out of balance with the fruitiness... I haven't taken a sip for probably ten minutes and the apricot is still prancing around my palate begging for some Scope.

Pours a liquid cream corn with a big rollicking winter seas white foam.

Smells of big buttery biscuits, hay, and lemongrass.

Tastes like the Yeaster Bunny ran roughshod on the Banana Hammock District (down on third). Soapy biscuits and light lemon seals the deal.

At yeast we have our health.

Pours a very hazy, dark golden orange with banana yellow edges and a half finger, frothy white head that slowly settles into a thin, lasting ring. Decent retention with sporadic spotty lacing left behind.

Floral, slightly earthy aroma with subtle grassy hops, bready yeast, pale malt and faint light fruit notes. Pretty bland with some piney hops, bread, biscuit, peppery spice, apple and pear.

On the fuller end of medium body with tight carbonation, earthy hops and a prominent peppery spice presence that lingers over the bready yeast, pale malt and light fruit notes into a dry finish. Thankfully this beer tastes more interesting than it smells but the yeast presence is a bit too strong for my preference and it feels more like a wheat/witbier than anything else. Some zesty coriander and grassy, piney hops followed by sourdough bread, bubblegum and lemon zest. Slightly tart and somewhat refreshing but a bit watered down and pedestrian. As it warms, the ester-y light fruit notes start to show with hints of apple, pear and raisin. Still, this beer isn't very complex or interesting. Not bad by any means, but it just doesn't stand out. I'm glad that I only bought a single can.

Sampled on tap at the brewery.

Hazy golden yellow with a nice white head. Sweet, yeasty aroma with a mild grain and hop finish. Flavor is also exceptionally sweet and yeasty with a mild bitter finish. Not much in the way of hops and a relatively thin body. I'll pass on this.

Got this as a growler fill on a visit to the brewery. For the tasting I poured it into a tulip shaped glass.

It's not real impressive in appearance. The color is a dull yellowy gold and its quite murky looking. There was about 1 finger of head when I poured it into the glass but it did not last long. There's no lacing as the beer disappears from the glass.

Its got some lemony citrus, banana, peppery spiciness, and yeast in the nose. The taste is made up of grains, spiciness, and booze with some faint fruit.

Overall its pretty mediocre. I'm kind of surprised because I had this on tap at the Argonaut in DC a few weeks back and quite liked it but this batch doesn't seem to be as good.

T: Spices up front again with slight bubblegum and light fruit notes. Dry, slightly bitter bread and yeast flavors bring up the finish.

M: Medium-light body with medium carbonation, this beer is a little on the watery side.

I forget who extra'd me this, but thank you to whomever you are. Shame on me for forgetting. This one pours a deep gold, almost-amber color in the center with some bright, banana yellow highlights at the edges. Big, soapy, and frothy is the stark-white cap, settling nicely at just over a half an inch. A decent amount of sediment can be seem floating through the murky, yellow abyss.

The initial whiff instantly reveals what seems like some sort of mixture between a Belgian style triple and and American Pale Lager. Notes like mild clove, fruity esters, and some very light Candi sugar are pushing the tripel front, while some musky, murky hops, heavy grains, and a substantial amount of wheat lean towards a lager. It is evident from the yeast, however (especially upon warming) that this is certainly no lager, though the hops can be deceiving at first. The yeast opens up with some warmth and shows more bubblegum-like notes, though still slightly underpowered, that easily unmask the Belgian nature of this brew.

And as confusing as the nose is, the flavor of this one is even more unexpected. Initially, it hits with a banana-like fruitiness that's accompanied with a mild sugar coating, almost Candi sugar sweet, but not quite there. One good malt charge later and you think this will be like a traditional tripel. But before long, a staunch, hoppy bitterness wafts in and engulfs the palate; musky and dry hops, possibly some sort of Noble variety. Grains come into the scene and play off of the almost astringent bitterness.

Some moderately soft wheat fades in and out, as does a good amount of fusel alcohol notes, somewhat surprising for being only 7% ABV. The finish comes back with another light hint of fruity sweetness - again, mostly banana, possibly joined by a light pear essence this time around. The bold and assertive bitterness of the hops are not to be forgotten, however, as they remain lingering heavily in the background. Some bready malts and grains coat the palate afterwards with a slight touch of yeast, but I keep having the feeling that nothing is really "coming together" for this beer. Thin-medium bodied with high carbonation for a wet, crisp mouth feel.

Not sure if it was the execution or just an odd collection of ingredients, but this one didn't really mesh the flavors well. Too many distinct flavors popping out on their own, seemingly out of place, rather than molding together to form a nice, coherent flavor profile. Far from awful, but probably not something I'd seek out again.

Thanks for another local Chaney!

A - Graham cracker golden in color, this mostly clear beer has light carbonation streaming from the glass' nucleation point to it's short-lived white head. The thin skim of bubbles and ring of foam rests calmly below few gnarled fingers of lace. A clean glass at the finish results in a rather disappointing presentation from a Belgian-style beer.

S - Perfumy and aromatic, The Citizen has a distinctly Belgian yeast nose that brings fourth lofty banana esters, earthy clay, white pepper, and cracked coriander seed. Honey drizzled warm muffin rests below with a dense sweetness and hint of herbal hops far on the finish. When the head disappears the yeast nuances go away revealing some buttery creamed corn DMS attributes which weaken the beer significantly - before focus centered here I was genuinely impressed.

T - The beer's strong, perfumy yeast components die quickly revealing the true nature of the beer beneath, allowing same light notes of butter and creamed corn DMS find their way in amidst sweet pilsner and dry biscuit malt. On the flip side the hops that were lacking in the aroma begin to emerge nicely in the flavor, adding more floral, herbal qualities to the beer. I find that the majority of the off flavors seem to really be bothersome in aroma, not affecting flavor quite as poorly.

M - Tight carbonation bubbles dance on the tongue with a nice smoothness that aids the beer in it's already nice smooth feel. The Citizen is balanced, neither bitter nor sweet though leaning towards the latter, the dry finish capping the medium bodied, faintly slick beer nicely.

O - The Citizen has a great opening aroma, boastfully showcasing it's Belgian yeast intricacies but it can't hold it's air and it's puffy chest deflates to reveal some imperfections which hinder it. Not entirely off-putting but present enough to draw attention away from the other great characteristics going on, The Citizen is a great start to what could become a fantastic brew.

The beer has a translucent golden color with a small head of white foam. Lots of carbonation is visible within. Slowly receding walls of foam coat the walls of the glass after I swirl it.

There is some Belgian yeast and candi sugar in the nose, but not any of the peppery spice that one usually finds with this variety of yeast.

The flavor is more complex than the nose. It's a little spicy and a little sweet. A dry mustiness lingers briefly.

The beer is pretty carbonated; all of the bubbles tingle the roof of my mouth. A good amount of coating is left behind. It retains some of the Belgian pepper flavors.

This is an enjoyable beer. It's not going to blow anybody away, but if it were local to me, I could see myself drinking it occasionally.

For review #900, I went local!

Served in a DFH oversized snifter.

A: Poured a very cloudy, peppery orange color, with about 1/4 finger head that stuck around for a while.

S: I'm glad I waited until trying my second can of this stuff in two days before reviewing. Initially, the smell seemed a bit off to me, but then I got used to it an now I actually dig the who butterscotch caramel thing that this one has going for it.

T: Seriously, one would have to have a microscope to detect anything citrusy in this one. I got that same caramel quality that I got on the nose, only more intense. The Belgian funk was especially strong with this one.

M: The sweetness was tempered and I didn't get much booze, but the Belgian yeast is virtually seeping out of my pours! The lacing was moderate and I didn't get much more undesirable... except for maybe a few vials of Belgian White Labs too many.

O: Overall, I agree with what others have said overall and I truly wish this had a bit more citrus. That TOTALLY would have made a difference at least in terms of drinkability. Still, I'll remember the smell of this one for weeks!

12 oz can into tulip. no canned on date.

A: very opaque, very hazed orangey, yellow body. head is white and big. good retention as some thick lacing left behind.

S: eggy, sulfur. a definitive sweet, fruity hop aroma. however, there are more of yeast, sulfur egg aromas than hops.

T: sweet and earthy palate. the bitterness is there, but not enough to compete with the yeasty fruityness. peachy finish. the body is lacking a little in my opinion. wouldnt hate a touch more malty meat.

M: average carbonation on a medium body.

D: definitely more of a sweet belgian blonde than a belgian pale in my opinion. need a greater hop presence to call this a BPA. not a bad beer, but the label is a little deceiving. i say pass and check out some other brews from dc brah.

Yay craft beer cans. Thanks to kasubot (Reddit) for this one. No date though. Kasubot told me it was canned 12/28/13, and could be a bad batch, so I'll have to come back to this one if possible.

Pours a mild bubbly slight fizzy head that hits almost 1 finger and fades fairly quickly, no lacing though, very hazy carrot orange reddish colored beer.

Nose brings grainy toasty malts, a bit of a toasty wheat like, mild grassy straw like malts, mild citrusy aroma with a little juicy fruit, hint of a pick grapefruit spritz and bitter rind, bit of a candy like malt, mild ester profile with the fruity aromas, bit cracker, bit of hint of eucalyptus like oil.

Taste starts with more cracker malts, a little grainy toasty wheat like, mild sweet caramel and candy like malt, little creamy and bit of a grassy straw character. Then esters, lots of esters, bit fruity, that mild eucalyptus like oil again. A mild bitterness from mild hops, touch minty grassy hop with a little earthy herbal character, nothing too crazy. Finish is dry but sticky, hint of booze warmth, little oily feel, mild earthy herbal like hops, candy malts lingering.

Mouth is med bod, lighter carb, little syrupy.

Overall Meh, syrupy candy malts, hops are not great, ester profile swings too far, just all around not so good.

12 ounce can. On the bottom "Drink Me! 3/19/2014" Best before date? Canned on date? Dont the brewers think this might be kinda confusing and ultimately of no use to the customer??

Pours orange hued and hazed. Out of the can its all fizzy and loud bubbles. Larger head quickly goes to next to nothing. No film, no collar and very minor lace left on the glass. Something about a beer that makes a noticeable sound as the bubbles pop is off putting to me

The nose is of sugary fruit and a hint of yeast.

In the mouth this one is quite thick and viscous. Notes of of sweet fruit and wheat malts.

Too thick, carbonation to low, sweet with some lime and pepper...but complexity and interest here on the low end of the scale...I believe this is my first DC Brau, and I'm not overly impressed..

Slight yeast on the nose followed by an even lighter citrus note.

The beer pours a dark haystack opaque color with a white head, and nice lacing. The head doesn't last too long, but it's a good looking beer overall.

Strongest flavor sensation is that of yeast and doughy biscuity bread. There is a slight carbonation bite on the finish, and a balanced bitterness.

Finishes a tad dry with a fuller body than I expected and high carbonation. Overall it's not too bad, but it's not blowing my socks off either.

Poured from DC Brau growler (acquired same day) into a standard pint glass.

A - Pours a slightly murky golden color. Minimal head retention and no lacing.

S - Yeast is the predominant smell. Smells slightly sweet and bready as well. Not very strong, but pleasant enough.

T - Yeast is the predominant flavor; it has that stereotypical "Belgian" taste to it. There's mild hops and spice flavors (cloves perhaps?) present as well.

F - Full bodied with a nice level of carbonation. Pleasant aftertaste as well.

Overall, The Citizen is an enjoyable beer despite its mediocre appearance. It's quite drinkable for its ABV (it tastes more like a 5% beer) and works well for the hybrid it is. I would have it again.

Thanks to drabmuh for sending me this one!

Pours a slightly hazy honey orange with a 2 inch foamy bone colored head that settles to a film on top of the beer. A nice latticework of lace coats the glass on the drink down. Smell is of grain, yeast, and some light fruit aromas. Taste is very much the same with a delicate hop bitterness on the finish. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer but nothing that jumps out at you.

Sampled from a can purchased at Chevy Chase Beer & Wine.

Light golden with a hazy finish and a mass exodus of large bubbles that never really create a sustainable head. Aroma is lemon, black pepper and fruits. Flavor is big on fruity esters with some spicy notes and a moderate sweetness. A moderate consistency but a low carbonation after that initial rush out the door.

This is a tough style to do well; especially given the availability of so many Belgian masters. Drinkable and refreshing but this one needs more work.
