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.

From a bottle. Dark coppery with a good beige head. Spicy aroma, taste more on the sweet side, but balanced by the same spicy mix as in the aroma. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle shared at a tasting at Dima’s. BBD 03/2010. Pours murky brown with floaties and white ring. Strawberry and raspberry aroma, sweet and fruity and very slightly vinous. Soft carbonation, nearly flat, with a little yeasty bitterness towards the finish. Aged well.

DanielBrown (3697) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2014
Bottle from The Offie, Leicester. Soft mouthfeel, but has moments of tart alcohol. Warming. Treacly sweet, with beautiful maltiness. Great stuff.

Bosbouw (1048) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - APR 28, 2014
Troebele caramelkleur met een aardige crèmekleurige kraag. Ruikt zoet, fruit, amandel, mout en iets gebrand. Smaakt zoetig, caramel, fruit. Beetje plakkerige structuur.

Reminds me of the St Bernardus Triple. Strong fruit taste, dried peaches predominantly. Taste does not linger on, making this beer a great starter for a dinner.

UPDATED: APR 11, 2014 Hazy brown amber with thin head. Lots of spices, red berries and yeast. Medium finish with the sweet and sour of the berries but not too fruity, some alcohol and yeast. Interesting
