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.

7% can from CBB Seed. It pours a clear orange copper gold with a great fruity hop bouquet a soft belgian spice notes. Wonderfully soft mouthfeel with a round carbonation. The taste is bitter a bit metallic, spicy & fruity - a really well balanced BPA. Probably my favorite beer today.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours amber with a white head. Aroma of spicy yeast, floral hops, and pale malts. Flavor the same with a decent blend. Average texture. Not bad but not the best.

chinchill (5377) - 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.

hotstuff (5279) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 25, 2017
Canned 01/16/17. The appearance is a medium sized fizzy white head that mostly diminished, transparent gold body, lively, fast rising carbonation observed, and spotty lacing. The aroma is citrus hops, tropical fruit, grapefruit, juicy, spicy, yeast, and malt. The flavor presents moderate bitterness, citrus hops, tropical fruit, grapefruit, yeast, lightly sweet, and malt. The mouthfeel is light-moderate carbonation and this beer is light-medium bodied. A very good tasting beer for its style. It has a very good hoppy taste to it that leaves me interested in drinking this again. It is well brewed and I look forward to rating more of their beers.

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.

12oz can courtesy of Brooke (thanks!). Orange pour with white head. Aroma is nice citrus, peach and pine. Tastes are also fruity with pepper and belgian yeast. Pretty nice. Will have to try again.

On tap at Revolution. Nice citrus and faint tropical notes in the nose atop a bit of spice. Flavor is a bit hoppy with nice yeast character in the background. Light-medium body. A bit of bread.

muzzlehatch (4975) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 10, 2017
12 ounce can from Valli Produce in Rockford, IL, consumed a little too cold from a Duvel glass. Pours a bright, slightly oily gold-amber with a huge glass-filling bubbly white meringue head that decays very slowly and laces thickly...gorgeous fruity-herbal nose, mangos soaked in tarragon and thyme, with a bit of that Wit bubblegum and baking spice character, a bit of banana, a hint of coriander, intoxicating and almost perfume-like...on the tongue a lovely balance is noted immediately, a reasonably strong sweetness appears but the yeasty undertones and the light but forceful citrusy hops alongside a nice bit of burnt and toasty malt gives this an interesting and somewhat unexpected complexity; there’s also a touch of German wheat character here, and if there’s a flaw it’s that on the finish the bitterness is a bit acrid and unpleasant at first, though this largely dissipates when you let it warm to near room temp. The carbonation is strong and tingly, and the body is quite full, hefty even, but just misses out on having a bloating feeling and isn’t in the least syrupy. This has become one of my go-to beers over the past few weeks and I’m on about my 4th six-pack; easily the best beer I’ve had from this brewery so far and one of the best everyday-drinking Beligan styled ales available here.

tmoreau (4743) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - AUG 6, 2013
On tap at Brixie’s in Brookfield, IL., and shaker served with a clear, golden color, off white, creamy head foam that diminished to a thin but persistent ring, and showed some light streaks & spots of lacing. The nose presented light yeast & spiciness, honey sweetness & malt, and some orangy citrus. The flavor again was sweet, then a combination of tart fruitiness, and moderate, earthy & rind-like bitterness. Medium bodied. A decent Wit/Pale.

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.
