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.

0.33 bottle. A clear, brown color and a large off-white head leaving some good lacing. Aroma is composed of spices, yeasts, and flowers - a typical Belgian. Taste is quite sweet once again with spices, yeasts, fruits, and some flowers; it also introduced a bit of caramel. A medium to full body, a creamy texture, and a soft carbonation. The finish is long and sweet, relatively good. Overall the beer is really pleasant, it would seem that Hoegaarden can brew something more than a commercial Witbier.
