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.

BVery (6076) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - FEB 18, 2013
Poured from a 12-oz can, procured from Lizardville Rocky River. Clear light golden pour with a huge fluffy white head. Awesome aroma of citrus hops and mild yeast. Flavor is similar but the yeast comes through a little more and the citrus is slightly backed down. Lighter to medium palate. Solid.

BBB63 (6011) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAR 10, 2013
Tap at Kedzie Brewery, served in Tulip: Golden hue with a small head. The aroma is fruity and slightly dank with a herbal and grassy ester. Biscuity malt and an overwhelming rind-y vapour. The taste has a crisp hoppy bitterness with juicy and earthy notes. Hint of caramel and lot of grainy tones, lightly spicy finish. The mouth feel is a tad thin and soft for the flavor profile. Dry and tannic like finish. A nice enough brew but sort of got that been there, done that feeling while drinking it.

TheAlum (5672) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JAN 26, 2012
Tulip draft on tap at the brewpub (Chicago, IL). Pours a strikingly deep golden pour, a touch of orange, faint haze grows a touch, with a frothy offwhite head that dies to a small level, laces small overall. Nice color. Aromas are a rich melange of hops and yeastiness. Some gentle spice, dry herbal qualities, and fruity esters immediately mix with dry citrusy hops, some florals, growing orange and gentle tropical fruit, lemons, melon. A nice level, but not bursting. Touches of spicy yeast, bread dough, pale malts, and gentle apple and pear esters move in. More Citra enters the fold as it warms a bit more, quite nice. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied, offering a healthy fruity essence, citrusy hops and tropical flavors up front. A moderate dryness sticks, cuts through the sweetness from the esters created through the Belgian yeast. Gentle apple, melon, tropical fruit. Lemons, florals, grass, more mango, growing into a fruit vibrant front end. Middle gets fruity, but not sweet as the C hops stay the focal here. Touches of florals and dryness kick in, as the backend offers a moderate dryness, some lingering bready and pale malts, touches of Belgian yeast that offer a gentle herbal quality, some mellow fruity esters, but largely the hops remain the focus. I was a bit skeptical of the brew, thinking it would be far too sweet. However, the hops remain the focus here. The sweetness stays at bay and the yeast doesn’t take over but provides a decent synergy. Quite a lovely beer, coming from someone who spurns a Belgian influence as they become heavy handed quite quickly. Well done.

Cornfield (5465) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAR 14, 2014
Fr0m a can (N0T fr0m The can... 0h, wait. I already used that.) - Nice g0ld/br0nze b0dy, tiny bubbled, with a m0dest head that rapidly reduces t0 a film. The ar0ma is spicy with h0ps - fl0ral (snapdrag0ns?), resiny, with tangerine and 0range rind - 0ver a light breadiness. The flav0r (which we’re t0ld can 0nly be sweet, bitter, s0ur, salty, and umami - I’m glad I’m stupid) sees the additi0n 0f bananas and 0ther fruit (umami apple?) with a black pepper bitterness (which I can taste, minus the pepper c0mment). Dry finish, mildly bitter and fruity. Nice sec0nd runnings beer, gentlebrewers!

12 oz. can. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. The aroma has juicy citrus, grapefruit, grass and some yeast. The flavor is citrus, light tropicals, grass, toasted malts, yeast with light Belgian character. Not bad for what it is.

Can to taster. Looks solid; a transparent orange with white lacing. Smells hoppy and doughy with an average mouthfeel. A good example of the style.
