Thanks to woodychandler for this one. There was no info on the can to provide a clue as to what I should expect from this brew. With a name like Walloon however, I suspected something Belgiany.

Poured into 16oz nonic. Poured a lightly cloudy light gold color with 3/4 of an inch of just off-white head that had very good retention and light lacing.

The aroma started out with some yeasty spice (Aha! Belgiany, as suspected) and some nice grains in the background. The aroma reminded mostly of a Wit, I didn't realize that this was Saison until I logged in here to enter my review. The flavor profile was similar, but was more along the lines of a Saison than a Wit. The grains played a minor role to the yeast, but nothing really stood out. While there were no real wrong notes, neither were there any notable features.

The body was thin, even for a style that isn't known for fullness. Drinkability was OK, as I generally find the style to be easily and quickly drinkable. Overall, a rather bland and meh example of the style. Give it try if you see it, or don't.

Can that pours light coloured body, with rapidly dissipitating head. Neutral at best aroma, a tad cheesy and yeasty. Average mouthfeel, some satisfaction in "slaking thirst" but not too drinkable. A tad of yeast, just not interesting.Thanks SliverX.
