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.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 27, 2006
Nice deep amber/copper and very cloudy with yeast and sediment. Aroma is fruity esters, wheat, spice, apple, raisin, and some clovey phenols. Spicy flavor balanced with bready malts, slightly dirty yeast, earthy, and more fruits. A bit sweet in the middle, but finishes off dry and nice.

thebeertourist (5189) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 7, 2006
Bottle at The Dovetail. Deep bronze-coloured with a healthy off-white head that does not die down. Fruityaromas with bubblegum and spices as well as banana notes. Complex sweet flavours of caramel, banana and clove, matched by good hoppiness leading to a refreshing finish. Full-bodied and well-carbonated. Dryish mouthfeel. It’s InBev, I know, but still a great Belgian beer.

jimmack (1223) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - JUL 4, 2006
Bottle thanks to Dickinsonbeer at HW open house. Really murky light brown color with a good sized beige head. Coriander, mildly sweet malt and candi sugar are the main characteristics of this beer. Decent, but really didn’t do much for me.

RoyceH (1200) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - JUL 3, 2006
8.5%. Pours murky orangey brown with a big bubbly head, which fades quite quickly, what’s left laces. Complex aroma, malty, strawberry, alcohol, citrus, rather like Pimm’s No. 1! Yeasty taste, some syrupy caramel, malty, plums after, alcohol, maybe a touch of raspberry. More undisinguishable dark fruit. Palate is slightly dry, spicy, touch of herb maybe? Nice ale, rather complex, needs more palate, but enjoybale.

thewolf (12746) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 16, 2006
Bottle (8,5%) Great muddy broen colour with great beige head. Complex aroma with strawberries, plums and caramel. Taste is complex as well. This time it starts spicy, then sweet, then vinious and then plain and simple great!

3.3
shintriad (701) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 9, 2006
Not really that special...very yeasty, some dark plummy fruit, and good body to it, but you’ll forgive me for not flipping out over it.

3.4
