STYLE Belgian-Style Pale Ale
COLOR Golden yellow
ABV 7%
IBU 19

The Citizen draws inspiration from the timeless Trippel ales made famous by the Trappist and abbey brewers of Belgium. This sessionable version of the Belgian classic is a refreshing staple for any season. It includes Pale 2 Row, Aromatic & Carapils Malts, and Willamette hops.

Available year round in 12oz cans & draft

A distinctively phenolic bread-like nose presents with mild esters reminiscent of apricot and banana. Sweet, grainy malt skips across the tongue towards a spicy yeast character, slight citrus, and a subtle, but noticeable, earthy hop presence. With a smooth, fruit-like sweetness that gently drifts over the palate, the finish ends with a crisp dryness.

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 Carapils malts. "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.
