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.

Cloudy amber with a large head. Aromas are light citrus and bready yeast, banana and spices. Flavours are fruity malts with some chocolate and berries. Mild but tasty. Has a nice foaming mouthfeel. Dry on the finish. Good stuff.

turbothy (1141) - Bonn, GERMANY - JUL 14, 2004
Decent witbier, but a bit bland - the normal Hoegaarden is a more balanced; this one is dominated by alcohol taste-wise.

Dark brown beer with reddich accent and ivory colored head. It has rich aromas of fine roasted malts,candy sugar,Curaao orangepeal fine spices and coriander.This beer has a intens flavor and a good round body.In the end there is a fine bitterness of the roaested malts that goes well with the richness of the dried fruit accent.

Foggy brown color with a thick frothy head. Almost went over the glass!! Spicy aroma. Malty. Some fruit as well. Nice smooth taste. Hint of fruit, spice, and malt. Alcohol is masked very well. And very well balanced. Jeremy (jgb9348) made me buy this and man was he right!! Thanks buddy!!
