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!

Poured a hazy deep orangey-gold. Initially has a creamier white head that reduces down to slight presence around the circumference of the tulip glass. The aroma is mostly yeast with a hint of caramel. The taste has a nice tangy-ness to it, reminiscent of the way sourdough tastes. There are also some subtle fruit notes hiding in the back. There's a nice thickness to it and it's quite smooth. A very good Belgian-style pale ale.
