3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pale yellow and though sweet and sour, tasted aged and was sensational on palate. Fermented like carbonation. Too bad I could not walk away with a bottle. The Belgians was the surprise hit here, and this was the clear winner

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A straw yellow robe purports a savvy and creamy haystack. There seems to be a beginning of DMS, but it is actually contributing in this authentically Wallonian attraction.
Lemony meringue melts into a creamy, bitter finale. Huge effervescence aptly imitates the most Wallonian brewers. Not a stylistically-correct Tripel, but who cares when you are having so much fun?
Veracity breeds proficiently in the Michigan brewing scene, it seems.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Floaties soldiers arbor this golden white headed body. Intensely sweet aroma with heavy phenolic notes and a serious DMS component. Powder sugar, corn, honey, cabbage meld into a scent reminiscent of honey cough drops in a vegetal way. Somehow, the yeast dries it up a bit on the palate, though thereís still sugary banana bubble gum flavors. At the same time, the thick mouthfeel is dominated by big bubbles that keep biting after having swallowed. I donít know what to make of this one, clearly, itís not a top tripel, but despite every critic I have toward it, I can say I generally enjoyed it.
