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.

seynie (224) - 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

wittz (38) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 25, 2015
Barnacukor, élesztő, édes kezdet, maradandó keserű utóíz. Nem valami nemes. Magas alkoholtartalmán kívűl nem ad sokat. Ksi csalódás.

fredfa (55) - belo horizonte, BRAZIL - MAY 16, 2015
Muito saboroza, encorpada e como os entendidos dizem "é complexa". Possui um sabor diferente. Boa formaçăo de espuma que perdura na lateral do copo. Fácil de beber. O rótulo é muito interessante.

Orangebrun klar med hřyt beige skum. Lukter rřde frukter og noe rřkt. Smaker sřtlig fruktig, noe pepper. Alkoholen kjennes sřt og varm i avslutningen.

33cl bottle at Oosters, Singapore on 18/04/15 - poured into a tall glass. Slightly cloudy, reddish amber in colour. Medium sized beige head. Aroma of fruits, malt and spices. Medium carbonation. Slightly sweet fruity taste - some caramel. The strong alcohol comes to the forefront. Very nice.

Cloudy pale amber beer. Fruity and sweet with some hints of spiciness. Very refreshing, strong beer. Lovely

Robv (60) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - MAR 27, 2015
Nice, malty aroma, forestlike tints in it, nuts. rich flavour. Malty as well. Drinks very fluent. Sweet. Makes a nice digestif, after a meal.

thirstyrabbit (1361) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 12, 2015
Bottle. Copper body with floating sediment (but the bottle was standing still for weeks). Aroma resembles Leffe with its spicy yeast and sweetness. Sweet sugary and mildly caramelly taste with mild spiciness. Sweet finish. Kind of sterile and uncomplex like Leffe these days.

rami_pl (345) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAR 2, 2015
butelka, warka do 30/07/16. Dosc wysoka, jasnokremowa piana, ladna, ale szybko opadajaca do cienkiej warstewki. Samo piwo lekko metne (nie od drozdzy z dna butelki raczej, ktorych nie wlalem), bardzociemnomiodowa, bursztynowa barwa. Aromat bardzo intensywny, slod i drozdze dajace dla mnie bardzo slodka mieszanke zapachowa, triplowa dosc w charakterze. do tego duzo brzoskwini, troche banana, rodzynek, karmelu, slad ciemnych owocow (sliwki?). przyprawowosc slabo wyczuwalna ale obecna. po lekkim ogrzaniu przyprawy duzo bardziej odczuwalne. W smaku nie czuc wcale tej calej slodyczy i owocowosci z aromatu. Tzn ona jest obecna, ale jest mocno wycofana, robiac miejsce dla kwaskowatosci lekkiej i dla przyprawowosci oraz przyprawowej wlasnie, niezasilnej goryczki. wysycenie srednie. ciala sporo, choc czesto tego nie czuc przez co2 na jezyku. Alkohol wyczuwalny, choc nie jakos mocno. Dobre piwo, jednak smak nie dal tego, co obiecal aromat, a szkoda...

Icedwarf (612) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - FEB 21, 2015
Troebel bruin bier met schuim. Smaak is kruidig en zoet, kaneel, fruit, banaan en kruidnagel. Erg lekker, zeker tijdens koudere momenten. Eén van mijn favorieten, smaak blijft helaas niet echt lang hangen.
