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.

Maakun (554) - 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.
