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 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.

madvike (3201) - 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.

DrnkMcDermott (3003) - 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.

cbfobes (2881) - 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.

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.

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.

MrBunn (2736) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Can. The beer pours a clear gold with a medium to small head and aromas of slightly funky honey with a little grass. Flavor is decidedly sweet... lots of honey and a little funk and lots of spice. Mostly honey and spices. I’m not really in the mood for sugary beer right now and this is kind of cheesing me off... Not awful, but certainly not going to be a favorite.
