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 5-6C. Flavored with spices.

seynie (236) - Tienen, - APR 10, 2014
UPDATED: APR 11, 2014 Hazy brown amber with thin head. Lots of spices, red berries and yeast. Medium finish with the sweet and sour of the berries but not too fruity, some alcohol and yeast. Interesting

33 cl flaske kjpt i Platanias p Kreta. Klar karamellfarget kropp mest et lavt lyst farget skumdekke. St og krydret belgisk gjr med litt treverk blant duftene. Meget innbydende. St, kandissukker, litt krydrede, fruktige noter og god bitterhet.

Pours a murky Amber. Some sweet aromas. Of what? Not sure. Maybe dried apples and strawberries. Some sweetness on the palate before the booze takes over.

huineman (417) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 11, 2015
Pours honey-coloured, hazy, with a nice creamy tan head. Aroma is cookie, honey, butterscotch and bread. Taste starts slightly sweet, developing a mouth-covering body and a nice bitterless finish.

Ciemno złote, klarowne z białą puszystą pianą. Aromaty owocowe, bananowe, może lekka suszonych owocw. W smaku podobnie. Piwo rozgrzewające z ostrym jakby pieprzowym posmakiem.

willisread (829) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUL 6, 2015
Bottle from Masuyos. Pours a clear copper with a nice latte-colored head that lasts mostly throughout. Nose is covered in fruit: apricot, papaya, banana and prune with some nutmeg and fennel seed present. Taste is very similar with some banana and pepper coming through as well. The finish is slightly warming with nice fruity and peppery characteristics. Would be better in the winter around the holidays I suppose.

330ml bottle from Belgium in a Box - Thick white head on a cloudy old gold body, a citrus aroma, bit malty. Taste is clean, a bit of spice in a hoppy bite with a kick of alcohol at the end.
