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.

Bottle from Masuyo’s. Pours a clear copper with a nice latte-colored head that lasts mostly throughout. Nose is covered in fruit: apricot, papaya, banana and prune with some nutmeg and fennel seed present. Taste is very similar with some banana and pepper coming through as well. The finish is slightly warming with nice fruity and peppery characteristics. Would be better in the winter around the holidays I suppose.

330ml bottle from Belgium in a Box - Thick white head on a cloudy old gold body, a citrus aroma, bit malty. Taste is clean, a bit of spice in a hoppy bite with a kick of alcohol at the end.

ruuurd (155) - Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 31, 2015
Strong, spicy yet delightful sweet and subtle. I've tasted this beer 15 years ago when I was a teenager, no I remember why I liked it already back then.

wittz (43) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 25, 2015
Barnacukor, élesztő, édes kezdet, maradandó keserű utóíz. Nem valami nemes. Magas alkoholtartalmán kívűl nem ad sokat. Ksi csalódás.

fredfa (117) - belo horizonte, BRAZIL - MAY 16, 2015
Muito saboroza, encorpada e como os entendidos dizem "é complexa". Possui um sabor diferente. Boa formaçăo de espuma que perdura na lateral do copo. Fácil de beber. O rótulo é muito interessante.

33cl bottle at Oosters, Singapore on 18/04/15 - poured into a tall glass. Slightly cloudy, reddish amber in colour. Medium sized beige head. Aroma of fruits, malt and spices. Medium carbonation. Slightly sweet fruity taste - some caramel. The strong alcohol comes to the forefront. Very nice.
