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.

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.

Poured from a 12 ounce can. Pours a translucent, lighter copper with a creamy white head of foam. Aroma is sweet with lots of citrus and sweet Belgian candi sugar. Taste is fruity sweet and a mild bitterness toward the finish.

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.

On tap at Revolution. Nice citrus and faint tropical notes in the nose atop a bit of spice. Flavor is a bit hoppy with nice yeast character in the background. Light-medium body. A bit of bread.

Sampled at the brewpub on Milwaukee. It came in the glass a rich gold color. Nose of citrus, lots of it. MEdium plus body with a resinous mouthfeel. Flavor is a blast of citrus and there is some stone fruit. Long bitter finish. Really good beer..

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy golden amber color with a 2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of peach, mango, pineapple, lemon zest, orange zest, banana, tangerine, pear, apple, floral, grass, clove, pepper, light pine, light honey, and floral/yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great citrus/tropical hop complexity with a moderate yeast and malt balance; and good strength. Taste of big peach, pineapple, mango, tangerine, banana, lemon zest, orange zest, clove, pepper, pine, floral, grass, bread, light honey, and floral/yeast earthiness. Moderate earthy tartness and spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of mango, pineapple, citrus zest, banana, clove, pepper, pine, floral, grass, light honey, and floral/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Awesome balance and complexity of hop and yeast flavors; with a moderate malt balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and lightly acidic mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a highly excellent Belgian pale ale! All around great balance and complexity of hop, yeast, and malt balance; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.

7% can from CBB Seed. It pours a clear orange copper gold with a great fruity hop bouquet a soft belgian spice notes. Wonderfully soft mouthfeel with a round carbonation. The taste is bitter a bit metallic, spicy & fruity - a really well balanced BPA. Probably my favorite beer today.

12oz can courtesy of Brooke (thanks!). Orange pour with white head. Aroma is nice citrus, peach and pine. Tastes are also fruity with pepper and belgian yeast. Pretty nice. Will have to try again.
