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.

can. from Frank I think. nose full of cat piss and uninviting fruit. slowly rotting fruit with sugar. thank god it tastes much better and by that I mean it is actually drinkable. wow, I now officially am writing to the UN to prohibit export of US hops to Belgain yeast.

chinchill (1954) - 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.

That1Guy (1941) - Greeley, Colorado, USA - FEB 25, 2014
Couple of cans crushed with Honkeybra. Cloudy orange pour with a white head. Very estery, spicy, citrusy aroma. Flavor is more Belgian style esters and citrus. Seems like a wit on roids. But that’s cool.

rubbishystuff (1864) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Quite nice stuff. Bubbly and refreshing, initial aroma of strong citrus hops but the flavor of hops isn’t quite as prominent. Serving: Can

Nickls (1863) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 13, 2013
Tap. Fluffy eggshell head, light clear marigold orange. Zippy citrus and floral aromas with some light candy sweetness. Flavor is very similar, with nice citrus hops and a touch or sweetness in the finish. Could be a bit cleaner and drier. Lighter sticky body.

March 28, 2013 - on tap at bavarian lodge. Clear golden pour with head and lacing. Aroma of spice, yeast, citrus and malt. Taste was consistent with aroma, nicely balanced between the two styles.

hombrepalo (1831) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 29, 2013
Poured a slight chill hazed gold body with a light fluffy bright white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, dry grainy bread, lemons, grapefruit and dry tropical fruits. fuller bodied with lively carbonation. Flavor is the same as the aroma with some big yeast notes and citrus and tropical fruits along with grainy bread.

Westmeister (1784) - 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.

malrubius (1763) - Springfield, Vermont, 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.
