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!

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A- Orange body with some amber highlights. A slight haze to the body that prevents crystal-clear transparency, but enough for light to come through. Head is thin and frothy, with a cream color to it.

S- Banana, clove, herbal hops, toast, bready malt.

T- Taste has a pretty diverse mix of flavors to it. The yeast comes in first with some peppery notes, the big toasted malt bill provides lots of breadiness, with banana flavors sneaking in towards the end. Slight mix of herbal hops in the, with a hint of citrus as well.

M- Crisp, medium-full bodied, sticky lingering aftertaste. Finishes dry.

O- The yeast and the malt dominate this one. It's very different than almost all of the BPAs I have had, but not necessarily in a bad way. It's just different. I probably would not get it again, but I didn't hate it.
