COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Beer Market, OCT 02. Doug presented me with this great classic Belgian ale. Orange tea look that contrasted greatly with neat head. Aroma of forbidden fruit. Pffff, great intensity, some tartness, fruit, spice. Very complex. Very good aftertaste.

The fruity element are present but not dominant, and the beer just has a kind of refreshing taste with a very good palate.

diabel (1626) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - SEP 21, 2002
It seems as if this beer is some sort of sirop, in all kind of ways. This is not a beer that drinks very pleasantly.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 9, 2002
UPDATED: MAR 19, 2003 Nose is quite Belgian. Yeasty, with some sweet malts,some spicy clove and citrus also noticed. At first its sweetish (malt, candy sugar), but then dries out towards the end with some peppery alcohol. It has flavour, but somehow, it just appears a little one dimensional to me. Not bad though, 8.8% is hidden quite well too.

AndersR (195) - Århus, DENMARK - SEP 7, 2002
Dark brown color, nice head. Aroma is overwhelming, but the taste doesnt live up to the promise. Sweet fruity taste. Soft lasting aftertaste.
