A juicy, sour tropic Citra beer from Fungtional Brew Company. Fungtn Reishi Citra is truly an exceptional alcohol-free beer. It is brewed with adaptogenic organic Reishi mushrooms. These mushrooms are called “functional mushrooms” which are traditionally used to naturally aid the body and soul. It’s gluten-free, vegan and bottled with 0.4% abv.

Nose: Starts with tropical and red fruits. Pineapple, mango, grapefruit and raspberry. Followed by malt, caramel and lime. Sweet and complex.

Palate: The palate initially offers sweet and sour aromas. Pineapple, grapefruit, lime and orange with some bitterness. Quite juicy and smooth with a medium body.

Finish: Long and bitter.

Overall: Fungtn Reishi Citra Beer is truly a complex with sweet, sour and bitter elements. It is also really well balanced.

Hi everyone! It’s Baris. I’m a content creator/drinks blogger. As a part of my job/hobby, it is crucial for me to taste a variety of beverages (Not a bad job, right?). Having a healthy lifestyle with a workout plan, clean diet and moderate drinking. So, finding the right balance between all these led me to explore the low/no alcohol category.
