COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A citrusy and refreshing Belgian-style pale ale hopped with Cascade, Citra, and whole Crystal hops for massive aromas and flavors! Fermented with our Belgian Wit yeast for an extra dose of complexity, this one is very drinkable and extremely aromatic.

Per Wil Turner, this is a second runnings beer from Institutionalized Barleywine’s runoff.

12oz can 1/11/14 (Trader Joe’s Naperville)-40° in Trappist Glass-Pours a light amber with a nice off white head. Aroma of hops and yeast. Taste of hops, yeast, and malt. This medium bodied brew is not bad as the Belgian aspect comes thru on the back end. Not my favorite for this style but still pretty tasty.

Not understanding these positive reviews. Perhaps it’s my palate. But the floral, citrusy notes don’t cooperate with the hops. It’s a poor, almost gross combination. Not a fan.

12/17/2013: Revolution A Little Crazy... Well, this beer tastes exactly like the style it’s labeled to be, a Belgian Pale Ale. At first sip, the Belgian yeast spice, caramel/fruitcake malt, and fleshy fruits come through and then the citrusy, melon, and FLORAL hops layer in on top. There is a suggestion of tropical fruits as well and the biterness level is moderate which is right on for the style. This beer is on point and quite easy to quaff, but nothing special and sadly, easily forgettable. 22 fl. oz. bottle shared by dirhauge. Thanks Paul!

CanIHave4Beers (3351) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - NOV 26, 2013
Pours a pale golden color with a good head and nice lacing on the glass.

The aroma is floral & fruity in a very hop forward kind of way. It’s pungent and bright with just a light alcohol character.

The flavor is enjoyably bitter & plenty hop forward in a very fruity kind of way, lots o’ pineapple, mango & citrus... the beer comes off as a touch sweet, but all around packs a pretty nice hop profile.

Golden color, small white head. Gooseberry hoppy aroma. Medium-bodied. Gooseberry hoppy flavor too. Fruityness too. Nice.

Westmeister (1822) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 29, 2013
22 oz. Pours unclear orange with thin white head. Smell is citrus, a bit of spicy yeast with a bit of burnt rubber smell. Taste is a wallop of citrus, crisp malts, but its quickly washed out by a soapy, fruity, spicy yeast that leaves a residual sharp fruitiness on the tongue. Again the burnt aspects is there. The beer is not good as there is something just a bit unfitting with all the components and perhaps it’s infected.
