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.

Pours reddish amber, very cloudy with chunks of yeast floating around. Aroma is decent, caramel and spices. Taste has a good spicy, very fruity character, its sweet with very little bitterness. Palate is medium/full with lively carbonation. Overall a very decent beer with a very decent taste.

Maakun (507) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 22, 2014
Murky light brown with creamy off-white head. Sweet fruits, berries, light peach, with strong aroma of spices (cloves, cumin, pepper, cinnamon). Light roasted maltyness. Unlike I expected it’s not really very sweet in the taste, has a good tart middle and dry bitter finish with some herbal notes. Overall slightly boring aroma, but taste is enjoyable.

Erzengel (2396) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUN 23, 2014
Orange-trübe Farbe und süßlich-würziger Geruch. Der Antrunk ist mild-würzig-süßlich. Zum hauptteil hin entfaltet sich eine schöne Note aus vergorenen dunklen Früchten mit einem leicht karamellig-wirkenden Aroma. Hinzu kommt eine leichte, aber angenehme Herbe. Auf der Zunge bleibt eine süßliche, aber nochnicht klebrige, feinherbe Note zusammen mit dem angenehmen Aroma vergorener, dunkler Früchte und einem schoko-karmell Ton.
→ Sehr lecker! 12+11+10+11

adster (158) - HUNGARY - JUN 21, 2014
Már kitöltve és megszimatolva egyértelművé válik, hogy valami igazán különlegessel állluk szemben. Gazdag és kerekded ízek jellemzik e főzetet, melyben minden korttyal más gyümölcs aromáját véljük felfedezni, és idővel egyre többet árul el magából, mégis mindvégig titokzatos marad. Rendkívül összetett sör, melyben a túlérett gyümölcsös, paradicsomleves karakterű ízjegyek már-már tökéletes harmóniában olvadnak össze. Megfoghatatlan, különös és felejthetetlen ízvilág.

lamf (39) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - JUN 6, 2014
Bottle. Little gushing. Pours dark amber with huge head (too high carbonation). Sweet, fruity and spicy aroma. Taste is also sweet, red and dark fruits, quite balanced. Nice one.

AdiBeer (886) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2014
Aroma: prunes, malts, light caramel. Appearance: hazy dark brown, small creamy beige head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: bitters intensify, some sweets lingering in the background. Overall: OK Belgian Strong Ale, nothing too remarkable though. Bottle at Cafe Vlissinghe, Brugge.
