Forbidden Sweet Dessert Wine. Made from the sweetest nectar of frozen apple cider, enjoy this unique after dinner wine as an end to a beautiful evening with someone special. Some of the best things in life are FORBIDDEN. "Words can hardly do this wine justice." Forbidden is a one-of-a-kind dessert wine made entirely from the sweetest late harvest apples grown in Tewksbury, New Jersey. Sinfully lush and exceptionally fragrant, this seductive wine oozes sweet apples. So addictively delicious you just can’t help yourself. Forbidden is at it’s finest served at the end of a romantic meal with a sweet fruit based dessert; accompanied by candlelight and someone special!"

Bottle. Clear honey gold. Aroma is spiced apple all the way. The taste adds sweet honey, sugar, and white grape juice with an apple juice ending. Long finish with warm alcohol notes. Super sweet at first but, the slick and sticky feel coats the mouth and calms it down. -- I don’t have much experience with desert wines but, I’m really enjoying this one. I do love apple deserts though so, that probably helps. Very good stuff.

It’s amazing that this comes from New Jersey. Aroma and flavor are similar. Apples, grapes, some sweetness, honey and faint spice. Very smooth and quite drinkable. Pleasant and balanced with great flavors. Doesn’t finish too sweet either.

Very interesting. Orange pour. Aromas sour apples, honey and sweet grape.. Flavors a mixture of acid and sweet with a big apple finish. I want to hate it, but it was surprisingly good for the style.

Pours a clear and reddish/brown beer with a weak offwhite head. The aroma is cherries, tart and basement. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is acidic. Overall a good beer.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 22, 2011
375ml bottle courtesy of mar... Pours a mostly transparent golden honey-like elixir. Non-existent head to be expected with silky legs running down the sides of the glass... Sweet sacharine concentrated apple core at ir essence almos somewhat resembling an apple cobbler center without the spices or crust perspective... Sweet dessert post-dinner apartif with a considerable thick red delicious apple overtone. Thick in nature with a full bodied experience. Smooth with a concentrated apple cider influence obviously, not understated in any way, but partially overly sweet which may be the tendency of ice ciders overall. Tasty regardless and nonetheless.

Golden with a small white head. Strong pear and apple aroma, with a bit of funk, vinegar and wood. Extremely sweet apple flavour with strong alcohol, and a slightly tart note. Has a complexity and vineous alcohol, but the sweetness is a bit too overwhelming.
