"Forbidden Entry" -No, its not the latest craze in the adult films industry. Its and ale that results from the collaborative efforts of Blue Point Brewing and Kaba Access & Data Systems. Its a light bodied, easy drinking, and pleasantly complex ale with all all-purpose flavor and feel.

The ale pours with a medium goldenrod color that's lightly straw nearest its margins yet captures darker hues through the middle with its hazy and unfiltered qualities. A cottony white head billows to the rim of the glass with expressive champagne-like exuberance. Its long lasting foam stance and blanketed lace sing praises of a well-made Belgian ale.

Its honey-dipped scent is lightly biscuity, sugary, and a shade shy of caramel. Complex fruit and spice waft about the nose with intertwining apple, orange, and lemon character with that of white pepper, coriander and light cumin. A playful grassy note rises late and gives final impressions of lemongrass heading into the first taste.

Its taste is doughy and sweet; something of sugar cookies with a follow of mild honey and that sweetness that approaches caramel. But after its initial sweetness, the peppery qualities ensue and bring about a fruitier tone. Medium acidic flavors replace the sweetness and gives the ale a white wine character with its apple, lemon, orange and pear flavors. Balance from both yeast spices (peppercorn, coriander and cumin) and from fragrant grassy taste from hops. Its late bitterness is further grassy, herbal and slightly acidic.

On the mouth, the ale shows a bit more weight than its meager alcohol content suggests. After the first fleeting wave of carbonation expels, the ale's sweet fruitiness sits lightly lumbered on the tongue and impedes drikability slightly. But its trailing acidity, herbal dryness and soft warmth, the ale balances out nicely in finish.

Forbidden Entry is a delicate and soft ale that relies heavily on more finesse elements to carry its load. But its hearty sweetness, bready texture and lack of floral character limits its quality.
