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 pours out a burnt orange topped with a sand head. Nose is bubble gum some fruit and a nice belg yeast. Taste is more of the sweetness and a nice yeast touch.

Can (2013 assumedly) in a trade with theAlum, drunk on 2/16/14
Slightly hazy orange-amber beer is topped by a small white head that recedes to cover.
TROPICAL FRUITS. Yes, this is nice. Pineapple, mango, kiwi, that sort of thing. Lush, green hops and citric notes follow up the tropical fruit notes and a lightly sweet crystal malt note provides balance. Medium high to high strength of aroma, no flaws and just pure, aromatic hoppiness without all the acidity.
Hop bitterness, incredibly juicy fruit hop flavor and almost the perfect amount of pale malt sweetness collide on the palate. Soft texture and light but engaging carbonation keeps it drinkable, though it does get too sweet by the end of the glass. Bubble gum and light mango esters build on the finish and it gets a bit wit beerish but the hops are done so well they could almost put arsenic in this stuff and it wouldnt matter. Need to try more from these guys....

Cornfield (5570) - 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!

wlajwl (5555) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 5, 2014
Aroma is Belgian yeast, pine and hops. The flavor is light grapefruit, fruit, Belgian yeast funk, malts and a dry and bitter finish. Reminds me a little of Duvel Triple Hop, the hops here are a little more bitter and drier than most American ales.

Had this on draft at the revolution taproom/brewery. Very dry beer. Little like champagne. Tart. Unusual. Can't figure this one out. Ok beer

Pours hazy light gold into a shaker. Citrus and yeast aromas. Soft and thin with tropical fruit, coriander and yeast upfront turning to lemon citrus in the medium length finish.

12oz can via trade. Poured a rusty bronze body under an average sized frothy off white head. Aroma is citrus, lemons and tangerine, yeast, breads, tea. Medium bodied with average carbonation and a slightly syrupy finish. Flavor is yeasty, bread grains, citrus rinds, tea leaves, touch old lemons. Nice stuff.

12 ounce can. Thanks Jeremy! Pours a clear golden orange with a decent white head. Aroma of citrus, yeast, and malt. Taste is grapefruit, oranges, yeast, malt, and grass. Nice balance. Tasty.

jkwood04 (5244) - Connecticut, USA - APR 26, 2015
On tap at the brewpub. Pours amber with a white head. Aroma of spicy yeast, floral hops, and pale malts. Flavor the same with a decent blend. Average texture. Not bad but not the best.

cheap (5231) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 4, 2013
Smells like an ipa, grapefruit rind olfactory., perhaps a lot like mild b/o. Taste is at first I think a little too hoppy then it evolves into this backbone of a lemon unsweetened fruit thing. yes, each swig the same; an aroma of mild b/o then a palate finish of a lemony furniture polish thing. Finish is APA. Probably not a belgdy if you are looking for this style, yes, more like an apa - but so what, its beer. Yep, no way is this anything like an old country belgian. Ita a wannah beeeeee.
