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.

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.

Pours a hazy darker amber. Smells of oranges, malts, and spices. Taste is sweet of toffee, also bready with hints of dark fruits.

mgajdaczewa (457) - Katowice, POLAND - FEB 12, 2014
W aromacie słodko, mnóstwo brzoskwini, lekki karmel, przyprawy. W smaku również na słodko, owocowo z wyrazistym przyprawowym chmielowym finiszem. Dobrze pijalne mimo sporej mocy. Klasyczna Belgia.

Darkish yeasty beer, with a surprising funky and fruity taste. Spicey, malty and with candi sugar. Good one.

Opaque orange with decent lacing off-White foam head. Aroma is muffled but definitely fruity. Tastes slightly sweet, not quite what my beer buddy and me would call a desert fruit. (Nantes 201402) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bonkiedeaap (244) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 2, 2014
Bottle from a liqor store in Leerdam. The beer has a deep ruby red color and a large cream colored head, CO2 is good. In the aroma tones of roasted malts, the spiciness of coriander and orange peels. The taste is sweet and full, but is also dry at the same time. A perfect balance between those two with a nice aroma of herbs. The finish is long and complex with a light bitterness.

ABT_S54 (129) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2014
33cl in a Trappist glass. Pours a light brown/red colour with plenty of floating sediment and a generous head. Aroma is spicy and fruity with the taste bringing more of the same (cinnamon, nutmeg and sultanas). Very autumnal in feeling and is light enough to be enjoyed all night. Very Good.
