Belgian Beer no.25: De Verboden Vrucht, as in forbidden fruit

With such a name, difficult to resist : The Forbidden Fruit. A beer with a dark ruby like colour, intense aroma of spices, and high fermentation. Part of the Hoegaarden group, it is brewed at the Brewery De Kluis.
The beer label portrays Adam and Eve as painted by Rubens. Therefore the beer was banned from the USA, being considered as too ‘shocking’. Hmm…should have taken a better picture of the label then.
No recipe.
