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 5-6C. Flavored with spices.

gilvanblight (823) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 5, 2006
Nice chocolat brown with a thick head. Smokey taste with a bit of weak fruit. Mixed taste that really didnt got that great together, the balance seems off. A bit sweet but more bitter with a sour finish. A nice warming alcohol taste in there as well.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 1, 2006
Bottle at Chaucers Pub in London, Ontario. Hazy dark plum pour with an active and noisy mocha head. Impressive fig aromas with boozey malt aromas dominate. Yeasty esters are also present. Anise and booze in the mouth, with a rooted plum and fig taste. Strong and sweet, with a good warming quality to the finish. A winner.

chalmers (8) - Bordeaux, FRANCE - FEB 27, 2006 does not count
I bought this soley for the name. Usually I try to be careful of strong Belgian beers, but my beer store had it and it caught my attention so to speak. The head is really long lasting. I poured it about 45 minutes ago and it had a nice full 1/2 inch head on it. Since then I have been savoiring it while doing other things. Very sweet beer, and the 8.5% ABV is starting show. There is a minor bitter after-taste, but nothing to really complain about. All-in-all quite a good beer.

Panzerfaust (845) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - FEB 17, 2006
Pours a hazy dark amber color with orange tones and a big frothy and long lasting head. Sweet strong fruity aroma similar to the "Abbey Tripel" style, showing notes of peaches, apricots and a little of apple/cinnamon. Theres also a slight spicey note enhanced by some liquourish hints & some yeast. Flavor is sweet and highly alcoholic for an 8,5% ABV. It feels like a liquour in the mouth, ending with a medium bitter finish. The body is thick and softly carbonated. It has a nice syrupy consistence. Overall a powerfull and alcoholic ale. Drink it with caution.

ChrisG (31) - Secunda, SOUTH AFRICA - JAN 13, 2006
Dark hazy beer with a strong malty flavour and aroma. Strong yeast flavours as well. Head is off-white and lasts long enough. Enjoyable once in a while (due to its price in SA)
