The aroma had dark fermented fruit and flowers. The flavor had the same w/ a hint of caramel. The beer poured a deep brown color w/ thin lasting head and lacing. The mouthfeel was thin w/ a medium body.

Sickboy282 (1115) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 20, 2005
A very interesting brew that pours a deep brwon with a frothy, tan head with wonderful lacing. Aromas of raisins, yeast, caramel, prunes and a little wheat. Flavors of the same with a light cherry finish with some brown sugar thrown in for good measure. Slight medicinal/smokey (scotch-like) finish.

sampeled at the pizza port belgian fest 2005 Opaqe dark brown, medium body, slightly sweet, nice. If I were to get a bottle I’d age it.

lunaticharness (183) - Torrance, California, USA - FEB 10, 2005
the temptation really knocked the mother of all beers down a peg or two in this glass, mellowed it all out and gave it a subtle tartness and depth, very interesting contrast between these beers, hints of dusty chocolate from the MoAB, thinned body with a more zesty belgian flavor - all melted into a ruby hue

Tap @ Toronado. Brown in color with ruby tints. Strong wine like elements with chardonnay barrels from the Temptation mix. A slightly sour finish and fairly robust throughout. The combination brings out a lambic character on an otherwise darker beer.
