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 5-6C. Flavored with spices.

Pernille (518) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 4, 2005
Bottle. Very, very fruity. Pleasant malty and yet bitter. Great balance. Aroma: dusty. Smells like some kind of food.. meat maybe. But I really like it. If you drink this after a few other beers (like I did) you might also notice, that the leaf that covers Eves private parts look like a bird! And its funny that its Adam trying to seduce Eve to eat the fruit!

clutchrogers (90) - Broussard, Louisiana, USA - JUN 28, 2005
Tart, rich, thick rocky head, fruity aroma. Delicious in every way. Bright palate. Slightly austere for the style. A good beer to enjoy with friends.

hobgoblin (163) - St-piphane, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 25, 2005
Bottle at Lestaminet. Deep troubled brown red color with thin white head goes off quickly and poor lacing. Fruity, yeast and grapes aroma. Taste of fruits and red grapes and some bitterness and high carbonation. Bire de couleur brun rouge trouble et opaque avec un mince collet blanc qui ne perdure pas et qui ne colle pas bien au verre. Odeur de fruits, levure et raisin. Au got, elle est fruit et le raisin rouge est prdominant et une bonne amertume. Co2 lev.

NVBeer232 (467) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUN 24, 2005
Scored a bottle @ Smokeless Joe. Great red color. Great nose, with lots of fruit and yeast. Lively carbonation and great flavors of fruit, yeast, and a hint of dry spice. Light alcohol on the finish. Very tasty.

Sammy (11497) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 21, 2005
fruity and full mouthfeel. Held up in taste. Dark, yeasty and fresh from Belgiium at Volos. Bit of wheat with yeast, popular with mates at end of hot day. Was good both below and at room temperature.

ashbeero (51) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 17, 2005
Brown red-tinged beer with the well known Hoegaarden cloudiness. Dense white head, good lacing. Extremely fruity aroma as you could guess from the name. Also some yeasty and malty notes on the nose. Very fruity flavour with some caramel and doughy kind of characters. Very creamy feeling in your mouth. Definitely recommended if you want to try something new.

Pours unclear orange/brown with a fluffy off-white head. Full yeast and chocolate aroma with citrus fruity and light spicy tones. Yeast in the flavor as well along with malt, fruit, cookie, pepper and other spices. Soft mouthfeel.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 11, 2005
Bottle. Dark orange pour, good thick white head. Fruity aroma. Strong alcohol taste, dominates too much. Lots of malt sweetness as well. Kind of bland but ok overall.

jonsiii (165) - Fredericia, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2005
Bottle. Smells like a flower/fruit garden. Brown-reddish colour and a medium head. Medium thick texture and very good carbonation. Fruit + a bit yeasty taste. Very good beer!
