The Verboden Vrucht (Forbidden Fruit) is one of a kind. It is traditionally brewed with a mysterious blend of dark malts and flavored with spices. It underwent a slow second fermentation in the bottle so it matures into a delicious tasting beer with a complex flavor and a wonderful flavor balance between sweet and dry. Keep up this beer in a dark place and pour it at 5-6°C. Flavored with spices.

Veer (362) - Landskrona, SWEDEN - SEP 27, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2005 330ml bottle in Hoegaarden glass. Brown w/ pale head. Smells and tastes a bit like Delirium Nocturnum, malty, pretty bitter for a belgian ale. Good sourishness. Rich and fizzy. Good but not fantastic.

HogTownHarry (6374) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2005
Bottle (330ml). At Pub Italia, Ottawa. Poured murky medium brown with a thin light brown head. Aroma of brown sugar, toffee, cloves, yeast, sour wine, some hops, oak resin, a bit of sour milk and chocolate on warming. Tastes of milk chocolate, spices (coriander), hop-bitterness, alcohol. Mouthfeel is thinnish creaminess. *Very* nice aroma, ultimately a littel disappointing after tasting.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 18, 2005
Hazy red-brown with a giant, light tan, frothy head. Banana, peaches, cherries, plums and some subtle spices (coriander?). Moderately sweet, moderately acidic flavor. Moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter finish. Medium body, chalky texture, lively carbonation. Drying and astringent. Nothing standout in the flavor.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - AUG 14, 2005
Pretty tough to find in America, so imagine my suprise when I saw a single bottle of this in the grocery case in a small supermarket in Montezuma, Costa Rica. Picked it up for 740 colones, or about $1.50 U.S. Pours a reddish brown, cloudy amber body. Head is honey-cream, thick, and long lasting. Smells of ripe red fruits, banana esters and belgian spices. Decent tasting beer, sweet/bitter burnt sugars come through, on top of fruits. Some doughiness/yeast in the finish. Spices dry a little too. Solid belgian

bmxutos (161) - Lisboa, PORTUGAL - AUG 13, 2005
Bottle, 33cl. Beautiful dark brown/red colour with a nice beige head. Aroma isn’t as strong as i expected. Notes of fruit and spices. Good flavour although a little bitter at the beggining. In my opinion, this beer is a lot better when it gets warmer. Good but not exceptional.

Hazy brown colour. Off-white head. Has citrus in the aroma. Taste from hopes and yeast. Also from some alcohol. Has lots of sweetnes and a quite long aftertaste. Had this at THE POTREFENA HUSA in Praha.
