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.

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!

bkurtz (1068) - MOROCCO - JUN 5, 2005
(bottle) Poured a cloudy, reddish brown with a wonderful, sour fruit aroma. The yeast comes through with fruity (apple. orange peel) tones. Sweet, but very appealing beer.

asheft (3047) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 3, 2005
[bottle in Hradec Kralove] Cloudy (from my pour) dark brown wtih a thick and moderately rocky head of off white foam and a darker ring. Aroma: Fruity!!: plum, strawberry, kiwi, plus a bit of yeastiness. Dry, fruity taste with some caramel and cereal grains. Also creamy notes and a touch of malt sweetness. Light body, lots of carbonation and maybe a tiny bit of metal.

MiP (15394) - Snderborg, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2005
Bottle. Boring acidic aroma. Cloudy brown colour. Malty flavour, some bitterness. Maltiness is nice, but I would have liked more alcohol flavour and feel.

Brown appearance with a strong presence of alcohol as you would expect.Fruit and bitterness dominate. Drinking this as quite a pleasant experience.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2009 Bottled. An amber brown coloured beer with plenty of sediment and no head. The aroma is sweet and alcoholic with brandy notes. The taste is sweet and fruity. Again the alcohol comes through. A nice beer but I felt it might have been a little old (Didnt see the bottle so dont know the BBE)Score 3.4
Subsequent rating scored 3.6. Average becomes 3.5
