The Citizen Belgian Ale is inspired by the timeless Tripel style ales of Belgium. Using a traditional high gravity "Abbey" yeast strain that encourages the production of highly palatable ethanol notes supported by Aromatic and "The Citizen" also exhibits the noble hop spiciness that is common to most Belgian Ales. Reigning in at 7.0% ABV this is the Brau's strongest offering in our flagship portfolio. Become a Citizen of the world, one sip at a time!

Pours a light amber with not a lot of head. The smell was very subdued but had some nice grapefruit scents to it. The taste was a bit mellow throughout with some hop flavors on the end, but little Belgian wheat or other flavors. Not bad, but I like a lot of their other beers more than this one.

Poured from a 12OZ can into a pint glass.
Aroma- slight hop aroma with a sweet finish.
Appearance- a murky golden yellow with a very small white head.
Taste- clean and slightly hoppy, very little bitterness.
Palate- a medium bodied brew eith light carbonation.
Overall- not a bad beer, my first from this brewery.
