look: 5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Verboten has a hazy, peach and copper body with a large and dense, just off-white head. Head has great retention, becoming rocky as it recedes, and leaves heavy lacing. Most noticeable in the aroma is the expected spicy yeasty, with coriander and a bit of clove and pepper. Also has a good deal of fruit in it, including apple, banana, and lemon.

Taste starts with assertive and dry yeast, moving to white pepper and clove. Then banana, orange peel, lemon, and sour apple in the middle, with a dry, yeasty, slightly citric, crisp finish. Mouthfeel is light with very high carbonation, a touch of graininess.

Serving type: bottle

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a pilsner glass.

Appearance: Hazy redish orange, thick off white head but very little retention.

Smell: Citrus, yeast, and wheat.

Taste: Spices and yeast dominate the taste. Some sweetness.

Mouthfeel: High carbonation, smooth.

Overall: I bought a 6 pack of this beer and it took me until the last one to win me over. Yeast makes the beer here and it has a nice sweet taste. I would have it again.

Serving type: bottle
