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.

Looks like they pulled this straight out of a drained swamp. A primordial looking beer from the murky depths. Great aroma and citrus taste. Nevertheless I find it hard to be convinced by this. Probably the alocohol content which puts me off.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - SEP 17, 2004
Dark amber-brown. Nose is sugary and yeasty, some spice to it, quite assertive and interesting with dark fruit, some cola sweetnes, really, really nice. Flavor is a big letdown, watery and a bit soapy, washes out the yeast and spice. Little flat. Forbidding this one seems like a bit of overkill, frankly.

Murky orange brown body with a foamy light tan head. The aroma is yeast and some spice, cloves and citrus. Flavor is straight forward sweet sugary belgian strong. The yeast profile is rather strong and detracts a bit. Towards the end some hop bitterness shows up. Body is mediium and fairly carbonated. Not bad, not great.

dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2004
Nice dark orange colour, lasting foam, a bit bitter at first, but second and third tasting bring about interesting flavours and aromas. Not the greatest beer I’ve triaed, but definitely worth trying.

Mid brown with a hint of Red. Lightly carbonated with a tight white head. Musty aroma, hint of fruit also. Warm, Fruity, musty flavours with some alcohol in the background. Complex and good.

Sigmund (7536) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 27, 2004
(33 cl bottle, bought in Denmark). Cloudy brown with floaties, enormous thick creamy head. Lovely complex aroma of cherries, figs, prunes, spices, oak and sandalwood. Flavour is not quite as complex - malty, some fruit and spices, rather alcoholic, bitter finish. I wish the aftertaste had been as good as the aroma. A beer well above average, but not as good as I expected.

appearance is a reddish copper color with and off-white head. the aroma is spicy, citrusy, slight roastednes with some clove. very lively carbonation. strong mlat and caramel falvors with hints of fruit and roastiness. slighty spicy.a nice warming effect on this chilly prague afternoon.
