Draft sample at Arbor. Poured clear reddish brown color with a minimal frothy brown head that mostly diminished with little lacing. Moderate yeast, sweet malt and small hop aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium toasted sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Good drinkable beer.

12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Ann Arbor Eisenhower, 3/22/16. Hazy amber with a thin off-white head that fades quickly. Aroma of bubblegum, banana, citrus, lemon, yeast, bread, candi sugar. The taste is bubblegum, yeast, berries, banana, citrus, dandelion. Medium bodied, mild booze, lingering spice, low carbonation. Need a bit more body, but solid. bu11zeye (13215) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - FEB 21, 2009

On tap at the Brew Pub. Poured a cloudy gold color with a small sized white head. Yeast, some fruitiness, citrus, and spices. Dry finish. Alcohol content well hidden. Sammy (12760) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 27, 2007
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

UPDATED: DEC 20, 2009 Tap at the Brewpub. Poured a clear dark gold with a thick white head. Aroma had notes of banana, grain, and apple.

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.
Pour on tap, slightly hazy golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of vanilla, sugar, slight white fruit into a bit of bread, biscuit, slight yeasty notes. Taste was mainly sweet, some bread, sugary, fruity notes with a hint of spice, finishing sweet, slight booze. DrSilverworm (9672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 18, 2016
12oz bottle. Musty, bready biscuity aroma up front. Mild fruitiness. Belgian yeast. Touch of apricot. Some white grape. Caramel. Hazy darker amber color. Ring of bubbly white head. Some loose bits of lace. Kind of bigger body. Mild slick texture. Light carbonation. Kind of bigger sweet taste, light to moderate spicy. Some mild alcohol warmth. Some nice banana bread kind of character comes out. Solid despite being a bit maltier than typical, gets better as I go, initial mustiness fades quickly. Nice to enjoy with my Dave’s Hot N Juicy (to be clear, that’s the name of a burger from a popular fast food chain).
