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.

tmoreau (3263) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - AUG 6, 2013
On tap at Brixie’s in Brookfield, IL., and shaker served with a clear, golden color, off white, creamy head foam that diminished to a thin but persistent ring, and showed some light streaks & spots of lacing. The nose presented light yeast & spiciness, honey sweetness & malt, and some orangy citrus. The flavor again was sweet, then a combination of tart fruitiness, and moderate, earthy & rind-like bitterness. Medium bodied. A decent Wit/Pale.

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, 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.

madvike (3148) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 11, 2012
Bottle from pantanap...thanks Kan! - Pours clear light amber with a thin white head. Nose is dank, oniony hops, citrus, light pine, and grass. Real pungent, and only a hint of sweet malt peeks through. Taste still has the oniony, garlicy, piney hops, but a lightly spicy sweet bread malt base underneath. Real smooth velvety mouthfeel, gentle carbonation, and a fairly hefty body. Good stuff.

maekchu (3039) - Hirakata, JAPAN - OCT 15, 2015
Can from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Overripe citrusy nose, cat piss, and yeast. Bright orange/amber color. Heavy zesty citrus nose, little shouts of bittering and pepper in mid palate, and rather deep bitter tracks in final. Medium nody, with some hop/yeast bite. Tasty, but with distinct flavors that don’t quite meld.

DrnkMcDermott (2958) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - MAR 4, 2013
Single can from Binny’s. Nice tropical fruit smell from pouring it into the glass. Closer in, I can find more of those traditionally piney northwestern hops. A clear gold color in the glass, and it pours with a finger of spongy foam. Malt is pretty light against the overwhelming force of this hoppy little cane toad. Hop bitterness almost pierces my tongue, but is till relaxing and almost indulgent. Definitely a great beer you’d never expect to find in a can.

Bart (2938) - 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.

troyc (2870) - Illinois, USA - APR 9, 2014
[Can] Poured golden in color with a hint of a reddish hue to it. Spicy citrus hops and yeast notes in the aroma. Yeast and a little funk starts in the flavor. Peach, tart pear, honey, bread and dry lemon mix with hops that impart more of an orange flavor. Not a bad beer, but I am really not sure what to make of it. Seems a little muddled together in the end. Tasting notes from 2/2014.

cbfobes (2844) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - JAN 2, 2015
On tap at O’Keefe’s, pours a clear dark orange amber with an off white head, the aroma is of belgian yeast with some bubblegum and a little bit of hops coming through too, the flavor has a yeasty front end with a crisp hop finish, almost on the edge of a belgian ipa type, tasty.

12oz can from dmac! Thanks bro! Pours a clear dark golden color with a thick frothy white head. Aroma of sweet citrus, orange zest, grapefruit, caramel malt, and a faint hint of Belgian yeast. Taste is more Belgian forward. Banana, yeast, caramel malt, dough, orange zest, grapefruit, and herbal hops.
