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!

Surprised to find something this good in a can!

The malt sweetness and yeast hits right away. A little bit of honey and citrus aroma. Heavy but went down easily despite the 7% ABV. Mouthfeel a bit "sticky" for lack of a better word. Could have used a tiny bit more hopping for balance - I expect any Belgian-style to emphasize the malt and yeast more than the hops, but it was almost *too* sweet. I'd still buy it again, though.
