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.

Serapac (144) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 6, 2014
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
