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.

Fruity with strong hops. Has a strong bite from the hops but the aftertaste hits the citrus notes. Lemon and grapefruit. Belgian yeast not as noticeable, more similar to a citrusy IPA.

Pours a golden orange with a white head and nice aroma of fruits, citrus, and peach. Taste is well balanced, nice hoppy, citrus, peach notes with malt, caramel, and light spice leading to a dry, fruity finish. Very drinkable, tasty pale ale

Draft at Belgian Fest. Glad I had a chance to finally try this one. Nose is huge hops, really fresh and citrusy, tropical fruit from the Citra. Light Belgian yeast, tart note. Some noted pepper notes and grain. On tasting, medium-high bitterness, clean and deep. Nice malt balance and fruity hops. Tropical qualities are really nice. Great stuff.

Pours a very heavy amber with a huge rocky off white head with great lacing. Aroma of citrus and tropical fruit with a bit of chives and bubble gum. Big citrus and grapefruit flavors initially in the taste followed by some dankness. Sweet bready malt character with a hint of pepper and some lemon. Finishes semi dry with a light bitterness. Mouthfeel is crisp with medium body and carbonation. Enjoyed the citrus and tropical flavors. Played well with the slight dank flavor and breadiness.

sawbuck (382) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - APR 4, 2014
Awesome aroma of citrus mixed with fresh, piney hops. Orange amber with a thick tan head. Sweet malt up front, intertwined with notes of fresh orange and sweet candy. then nicely balanced with a slightly bitter hop. Finishes balances with the perfect amount of bitterness. Outstanding representation of this style.

Can dated 12/26/14 served in a tulip. The beer pours a crystal clear orange amber with an inch of off white head that leaves decent lacing. Aroma is floral with grassy hops, some mild citrus, bananas, dough, and coriander. Taste is banana, clove, and bits of lemon zest as well as lots of dough and mildly funky barnyard flavors. It’s fairly juicy up front and coats your mouth while leaving a pleasant aftertaste. Very good beer.
