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.

Jolie bière acajou tout en rondeur. Touche de noyau de cerise et d’épices. L’alcool est présent mais ne nuit pas à la bière. Un jolie bière assez atypique.

kapusil (1515) - 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.

0,33l from bottle at Mels Diner. BB 06/02/2016. Cooper hazy color, small off-white head. smells sweet, caramel, light fruity, light spices. decent smell is a bit too sweet though.. full body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes sweet, caramel, some belgian yeast, light funk, peppery, spices. Finishes lightly dry and with some sweetness and light fruity and marzipan / nutty notes. not a big fan, rather heavy.
