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.

Dragonblaze99 (354) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2002
A very strong, fruity ale with a nice balance. Alcohol is well-hidden in the flavor, so this one can really sneak up on you.

Dark brown in color; medium head with good lace; citrus and corriander in the aroma. Very round. Alcohol well-hidden at first. Dry in the back. Tiny bit of cinnamon. Very round spiciness with a full mouthfeel. Becomes very soft towards the end. Beautiful.

HansJM (358) - NORWAY - NOV 29, 2001
Fruit forbidden? It wasn’t anyhow as fruity as you could expect. Not big enough in volume for the alchol content.
