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.

Nice fruity hop aroma. Taste is the same fruity hops with a little malt and yeast. Really good beer.

on tap @ Taste of Belgium / Cincinnati OH --- Clear caramel amber, thick rim head, bands of lace. Taste is malt and a little bitter coriander, perhaps a little cloves. Citrus hops jump in in the palate, but never quite overcome the openers. Interesting, big flavor, but doesn’t really pair with anything. One at a time is more than enough (like a rich dessert).

12 oz. can, in trade with treebute. Pours a nice caramel color with a big, frothy, beige head. The aroma is bitter oranges, butterscotch, sweet herbs, and lime. Citrusy sweetness, with a nice, mellow, but assertive, bitterness. Light, pleasant, sweet aftertaste. Medium body, fizzy, a little chewy, and clean. Overall, this is an excellent, subtly complex, and quaffable beer.

Can to glass. Pours a clear golden color with a thin off white head. Aroma is fleshy fruit, bubble gum, banana, Belgian yeast. Flavor is more typical of a Belgian ale, yeasty, mild banana bubblegum sweetness. Lighter in body. Easily drinkable. Tasty.

Bottle at Savor. What makes this beer memorable to me is the aroma. this is full citrus hop explosion with floral characteristics. This really carried through in the flavor. Very bright and refreshing and enjoyable.

Pours clear amber with big frothy head. Aroma is dominated by hops-- I get citrus and pine. A hint of bready yeast is detectable, but definitely 2nd (or 3rd or 4th) place to the hoppy notes. On the palate the yeast and malt become more present and the hops to yeast profile balances out. Bitterness is there on the finish but very, very mild, which I enjoy. Malt also comes through on the finish. Mouthfeel is lively and bubbly. I like it.

Sampled at the brewpub on Milwaukee. It came in the glass a rich gold color. Nose of citrus, lots of it. MEdium plus body with a resinous mouthfeel. Flavor is a blast of citrus and there is some stone fruit. Long bitter finish. Really good beer..

Sampled at the brewpub. It poured a clear golden color with a white head. The aroma was of grapefruit with light citrus, some resin and a bread backbone. The taste was of citrus and grapefruit with a bit of rind and a bread backbone. Nice.

3.9
fraternie (1030) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 24, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2015 Both floral and citrusy on the palate, with balanced, flavorful grapefruit and nectarine citrus combine with hints of dried flowers and cotton candy picking up subtle notes of toffee and crisp hops. through the long finish. Lingers with a slightly dry, funky note.
