COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

ardeo (133) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - MAR 7, 2016
Un classique, ce "Fruit défendu". Toujours, cette belle couleur brune avec un joli col de mousse. Arômes de cerise, gingembre, caramel ... Bel équilibre entre alcool et goûts.

Discounted bottle from Seijo. Caramel and overripe banana all the way, sweet cake, notes of clove, fairly spicy and boozy on the palate with a warming finish. Seems filtered somehow, unimpressed.
