On-tap at Prime 16 in New Haven, CT. Served in a pint glass:
The beer gave off a yellow, hazy, yeast color with white head that just stood up. Upon first smelling the beer, I thought that it was a combo Belgian and Hefe...it had that sweetness you would expect from the Belgian, but with a banana, pepper and clove and a hint of citrus. The taste followed the nose really well and I really enjoyed the taste. Perhaps combining two of my favorite styles. The beer had a lighter feel than expected, but this did not detract from the beer as it still had a nice smooth, almost creamy feel. It had a clean, dry finish. Overall, another stellar beer from one of the best in the land.

This pours a gold straw with a thick cap of foam.
I get an estery defined grassiness along with some drying straw aroma.
It's hoppy and floral with a peppery kick to it.
Great effervescence gives this a light touch on the palate and a crisp finish.
I found it real enjoyable.

A: Golden cloudy like thick lemonade, so thick its hard to see any carbonation. Crowned with a finger of white whipped cream like head.
S: Citrusy hops, some skunk, Belgian yeasts, coriander, light bubblegum.
T: Citrusy hops, Belgian yeasts, coriander, light bubblegum, lemon zest, some lemon juice tartness.
M: Medium slightly chewy body, medium fine bubbled carbonation.
O: The bottle and label including the name evokes Belgium to me, especially the Poperings region where hops are so celebrated in summer. The taste stands up to the style and name. Got this at Whole Foods in Boca Raton, drank in Deerfield Beach FL, July 18th, 2014.
