The Verboden Vrucht (Forbidden Fruit) is one of a kind. It is traditionally brewed with a mysterious blend of dark malts and flavored with spices. It underwent a slow second fermentation in the bottle so it matures into a delicious tasting beer with a complex flavor and a wonderful flavor balance between sweet and dry. Keep up this beer in a dark place and pour it at 5-6°C. Flavored with spices.

Koperkleurig bier met rijkelijke schuimkraag (ebt wel snel weg) Fruitig aroma van rozijntjes, pruimen, beetje banaan. Complexe kruidige smaak met beetje wrange nasmaak (appelsienschil), beetje moutig, peperkoek, kandijsuiker. Lekker genietersbier.

Attractive chestnut with a tan head. Smell is nutmeg, cake and toffee. Bodyfeel is so wheaty and limpid, lays over tongue. Does not taste cloying but hot n malty. Very nice but unfinished and young. High strength wheat dubbel?
