Vanilla Donker Aroma from Aruba

A friend brought me a bottle of this and I'm wondering if it it real or imitation vanilla. The label is in Dutch (I think) and the ingredients are:

natuuridentieke smaakstof voor levensmiddelen, water, E-150

Have looked on the net and come up empty.

  1. Well, did not get any replies to this post so I opened the bottle, it smelled like root beer, so I tossed it out. Still would like to know more about it...

    1. when i translate the first part "natural taste matters for foods." and E-150 is caramel coloring, so...
      so i'm guessing "natural flavors, water, E-150" means brown natural flavoring of fake vanilla...
