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.

kapusil (1202) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 14, 2016
0.33l bottle. Brown/ruby body with a thick and lasting beige head. Aroma of ripe banana, toffee, peach, nuts and some lemon zest. Taste of caramel, toast, orange zest, lemon zest and raisins. Sweet and fruity, but the finish has a hint of hops to it. The body is medium and it’s quite effervescent. Awesome beer.

Het is zeker een goed speciaal biertje, maar ik vind de smaak niet meer dan 5 punten. Je proeft de verschillende smaken, maar het is niet mijn smaak. maar smaken verschillen....

Spicy aromas of malt, wheat, caramel, peach, dried plum, raisins, candy and some tutti-frutti, a bit sourish in the end. Medium body, moderate carbonation, smooth texture, nice fruity finish.

Rhombic (118) - SPAIN - JUL 10, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2016 Pours cloudy brown with off white head. Grape aromas, apple and some overripe fruit - reminiscent of cider in a certain way. Flavours include a very clear apricot (if you have ever tried one of those sun-dried apricots, that kind of taste), blended in with malt and caramel. Medium body, fruitiness in retrohale, so I’m guessing a fair amount of esters to it. Long, gradual finish with a very subtle bitterness fading in just at the end. Well crafted.
