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.

12 oz can, Kroger Bridge St. Light golden color; pretty hazy; foamy white head becomes a large ring; heavy lacing. Aroma bready, orange, banana, spices. I would say the flavor leans more toward a Belgian than a pale ale, which isn’t necessarily a problem. This one is the good parts of a pale ale and a Belgian combined, without the lousy wheat characteristics of all the spring wits that are coming out right now. Good beer for the style. What a great brewery.

Can pour - Deep red amber; clear - very thick light tan head that might last through the apocalypse. Nose is hop forward - messy in some ways, but I think its the belgian yeast coming over the top of the citra hops...took me a bit to warm up to this, but once I did, the spiciness, which is notable, makes it complex and intriguing. Flavor plays back and forth between spicy, bready yeast and grassy/citrus hops, some fruit esters in here as well - sweet and bitter are both evident, but sweet wins out - mild bitterness on the finish. Palate seems appropriate for the style. Enjoyable beer - continue to enjoy most everything I try from Rev...

TheHOFF43 (2032) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - JUN 22, 2016
Can at home. Pours a clear copper with lasting white head and good lacing. Aroma is bananas and Belgian. Somewhat hoppy taste but eaten up by Belgian yeast and bananas. Really disappointing as Belgian yeast dominates this beer. The hop profile isn’t there.

SlovakSniper (4920) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 27, 2016
Cette canette contient un liquide cuivré qui fabrique une petite tête et une dentelle éparse. Au nez, des fruits des tropiques, des levures de la Belgique et des céréales grillées. En bouche, du pain et des épices, des agrumes et des fleurs dans une mouvance cohésive habilement captée par mes papilles qui ont une grande soif. Un corps professionnellement mené avec bulles vives et effet de légèreté. Une finale d’ananas et de citron avec un effet sec épicé. Amusante comme tout. Cette bière se laisse boire facilement.

Orange pour, small white head. Aroma of orange, melon, fruit. Flavor of citrus, lemon, pine, caramel, fruit. Quite bitter, with a burnt malt backbone.

Can. Pours orange with thick off-white head. Fruity yeast aroma with citrus notes. Citrus hops with banana notes with a hint of cherry. Crisp, hoppy finish with fruity yeast notes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
