A very beauitful and very dark amber. Almost non-transparant. Great color. It has a fruity, malty, slight alcohol smell. Very well balanced and great. Just beautiful. Looking forward to this. Wow, very nice. Malty, fruity and a littel alcohol taste. Just like the smell. But a little more complex. At least to me it is.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2005 I really liked this Belgian Ale. Surprised its rated so low nothing earth shattering or ground breaking but, still good brew for the style. Roasted malts, sweet, and yeasty flavors. Finishes clean, crisp, and dry.

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUL 26, 2006
Pours an opaque dark brown with a big rocky tan head. Smell is yeasty, fruity apple, spicy (clove and cinnamon). Tastes of ripe banana, clove and yeastiness. Sour apples and hints of lemon. Mouth is lighter than you would expect but still lightly sticky. Pretty damn good. The stronger big brother of the Irresistible Blonde.

Aged for about a year. Very deep brown in color, different dark fruits going on like plum, prune, and raisin with fig and nut. Somewhat spicy very smooth finish. Thanks to Boutip for a trade long ago.

oh6gdx (20003) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 21, 2009
Bottled (from lahoublonnaire.be). Very dark brown colour with minor head. Aroma is raisins, some mild alcohol, spices, yeast, dark berries and licorice. Flavour is caramel malts, dark berries, some slight oak barrel, mild licorice and some slight alcohol. Gets better the warmer it gets. At room temperature very pleasant.

Sammy (8096) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 11, 2004
Molasses colour, smell and taste.Big long lasting tan head. Much superior overall to the nauseating blonde. Some malt and flavorings that overcome mid-sip syrup and yeast. Carmel malt brown sugar. Something different from Unibroue. Spice is moderate. This was interesting for after supper.
