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.

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!

Brewed in March. A nice hop flavour with a moderate Belgian yeast. Altogether very drinkable. Some hop aroma.

CanIHave4Beers (3142) - 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 (1654) - 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.

HighWine (946) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - SEP 26, 2013
Tap flight at the brewery. Light yellow gold pour. Perfume hop fragrance. Taste is very pleasant. Belgian yeast with bright, fruity hops. It’s great...great...great...and then the finish is a little weak. Thin bodied and flat on the end, other than that, quite good

22 oz bottle dated 2013 served in a Belgian snifter. A: deep orange-amber color with high clarity and a thin fragile head. Decent lacing. Aroma & Flavor: With hops that make this citrusy and slightly grassy, and some Belgian yeast adding a touchs of nuttiness and funk, this has very good complexity in both aroma and flavor. Also has notes of tropical fruits. Mildly bitter. I enjoyed the aroma a bit more than the flavor, largely owing to the relatively disappointing aftertaste. Feel: Medium-light body with medium+ carbonation. O: a well-done and and refreshing Belgian-style pale ale. Very drinkable and rather aromatic for style.
