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.

Actually, a not bad Revolution beer. Light caramel, malt, yeast flavor balanced out generously with some hops, sugar, candy and lemon flavor. A nice balance to make this not just a light watered down version of a beer but something that has a bit of substance.

malrubius (1578) - Willowick, Ohio, USA - JUL 15, 2013
Bottle from Red Wine & Brew Chesterland. Golden orange with flat head and lace. Orangy hops and tangy Belgian yeast aroma. Medium sweet orangy tang with mildly bitter but very dry finish. Surprisingly dry finish for a somewhat sweet beer. A tiny bit medicinal and or astringent, but still pretty good. Medium body.

Westmeister (1534) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 29, 2013
22 oz. Pours unclear orange with thin white head. Smell is citrus, a bit of spicy yeast with a bit of burnt rubber smell. Taste is a wallop of citrus, crisp malts, but its quickly washed out by a soapy, fruity, spicy yeast that leaves a residual sharp fruitiness on the tongue. Again the burnt aspects is there. The beer is not good as there is something just a bit unfitting with all the components and perhaps it’s infected.

FunkyBrewster (1517) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 21, 2012
Bomber. Pours a light golden with a small white head. Aroma is nicely fruity and rich belgian yeast spiciness. strong floral and spice hop note, citric. Flavor bursts with citric and belgian spicy notes, simple but very drinkable and smooth, refreshing and citric. Medium body and a soft carbonation. Very good

Pours from the can a deep orange, with a light haze and a tall, dense off-white head. Aroma has a strong orange citrus nose with a light grassy kick and a sweet malt backbone with some light yeasty esters. Flavor starts off with a strong, bitter orange peel flavor with some some light grassy hops notes. Later a sweet malty, light yeast ester flavor creeps in with a slightly watered down hops finish. Body is light with low amounts of carbonation but enough to maintain the head. Overall the nose on this brew is fantastic. The flavor gets a lot better as it warms. Well balanced, flavorful and a perfect summer time brew.

Tap at plank Rd tavern.. Good hoppy nose is ruined by Belgian yeast, while not a flaw in the beer I think with a clean fermenting yeast you’d have a better beer or maybe just double fist

chinchill (1380) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 25, 2013
22 oz bottle dated 2013 served in a Belgian snifter. A: deep orange-amber color with high clarity and a thin fragile head. Decent lacing. Aroma & Flavor: With hops that make this citrusy and slightly grassy, and some Belgian yeast adding a touchs of nuttiness and funk, this has very good complexity in both aroma and flavor. Also has notes of tropical fruits. Mildly bitter. I enjoyed the aroma a bit more than the flavor, largely owing to the relatively disappointing aftertaste. Feel: Medium-light body with medium+ carbonation. O: a well-done and and refreshing Belgian-style pale ale. Very drinkable and rather aromatic for style.

12 oz Can : Pour is murky medium gold with a hint of amber, I suppose. The head on this is two fingered, fine bubbled, and off white. The nose is juicy fruit, caramel and florals really - it reminds me a bit of their hibiscus product - which isn’t exactly a great start. This brew has a nice clean feeling initial, light bittering hops, lemon grass presents itself, with more stark florals and the crystal presents itself- but frankly this is barely belgian for me. Bread, Caramel, Grass rounds it out at the finish line. I wouldn’t seek it out - but it was one of the better brews sitting at my local grocery store...

Tap. Clear yellow with a small white ok lacing head. Aroma is raspberry/fruit esters, grass, light grain. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Light bitter fruity finish.

Can. Pours a golden, burnt orange color with a loose white head. Nose is absolutely enchanting with deep citrus and a predominance of peaches and mangoes. Taste is deep citrus and full of nothing but delicious flavor ( can you tell I like it ) . Finishes on sweet citrus notes, dry and a true winner. Quyaff Score 9 / 10
