Notes/Commercial Description:
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: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A-pours a hazy golden amber with two fingers worth of white rocky head

S-pale malt, banana, light citrus, and yeast

T-pale malt backbone, wheat, banana fruity sweetness, light citrus, spices, and Belgian yeast

M-light to medium body, creamy carbonation

Overall a nice American take on the style. Very easy to drink. Would be a very enjoyable beer for the summer.
