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.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - JAN 28, 2012
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a crystal clear, darker gold colored body with a thin, frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is a nice mix of fruity hops and yeast. Crisp citruses, some florals, light grass, tropical fruits, a few yeasty esters, and some dry herbal notes. Pale malt backing with some doughy yeast and a touch of spice. Flavor is similar. Tropical fruits, citrus, and a light Belgian yeast note up front. Dry grass, florals, and a pale malt backing come in during the middle with some doughy yeast and herbal hops showing up at the end. Finishes dry and clean with a light bitterness. Nice dry citrus, tropical fruit, pale malt, light Belgian yeast balance in a medium length aftertaste. Light body with a moderate carbonation. Overall, a really nice pale ale. Crisp and fruity hops with nice dryness balanced well with a light pale malt backing and light Belgian yeast influence. Very enjoyable beer.

HonkeyBra (3108) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - SEP 18, 2012
22 oz. bottle. Pours a glowing orange pour with a small white head. Aroma of big pine and citrus hops intertwined with spicy belgian yeast. Flavor is sippy, lots of nice belgian yeast and bitter hop notes. Some citrus, song banana, and mild spice tones. It’s medium bodied, finishes long and bitter.

12 oz can purchased at Lalo’s Mexican Restaurant located in the Midway airport main terminal boulevard food court in Chicago, Illinois. The pour is a clear golden copper with a one inch light tan head. The aroma is fresh grass, floral hops along with a spice Belgian yeast. The taste is the nose, nice clean mix of the hops and the Belgian yeast notes. The palate is medium bodied with active carbonation and a lightly bitter finish. Nice, happy to find this at Midway (this place also had Revolution Anti-Hero IPA).

Pours clear orange with a small head. Aroma of fruity hops, zesty lemon and citrus. Taste of grassy hops, lemon, citrus and malts. Finish is fruity and slightly yeasty. Quite fruity Belgian ale.

Can from Binny’s downtown. Clear copper color with a white head. Smells like a sweet, perfumey IPA. Yes I can see where this has some Belgian notes to it. Really a pretty tasty ale overall.

Headbanger (2978) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JAN 11, 2014
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.

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!

Bart (2941) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 31, 2013
Draught at Mikkeler Bar, Copenhagen. Golden blond coloured beer with a rather light carbonation and a short white head. Rather fruity light hoppy pilsener malty hinted aroma. Medium to full palate. FInish is light fruity hoppy, touches of orange peel. Refreshing hoppy, not bad.

CanIHave4Beers (2908) - 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.
