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.

A slightly hazy brown body with a nice tan head. Nose is sweet and mellow with raisins, caramel and sherry. Taste is sweet and smooth, with a mild dryness on the finish. Carbonation is soft and the mouthfeel is quite rich. Very nice.

JanLaursen (3063) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 26, 2014
Flaske, 33 cl. Grumset ravfravet med stabilt off white skum. Dufter voldsomt af gær og sødt brød. Tørret abrokos. Klistret konsistens. Stor, men sød og intens smag af lyse, tørrede frugter og kryddrerier. Pap-agtige noter.

Too much carbonation but not bad for a belgian beer. I found the taste was quite balanced, not as sugared as delitium tremens and quite fruity.

Cerbier (190) - - MAR 9, 2014
0,3l Flasche. Rölich dunkles Bier. Angenehmer Duft nach vergorenen Früchten und Banane. Eine Geschmacksexplosion nach Früchten ist die Folge; etwas zuviel Alkohol im Geschmack.
