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.

Pours reddish amber, very cloudy with chunks of yeast floating around. Aroma is decent, caramel and spices. Taste has a good spicy, very fruity character, its sweet with very little bitterness. Palate is medium/full with lively carbonation. Overall a very decent beer with a very decent taste.

330ml bottle pours dark brown with foamy beige head. Aromas of stone fruit, caramel malt, marzipan and spices. Tastes of brown sugar, toffee, molasses, liquorice, cherry, pear, raisins, bready yeast, pepper, cloves and alcohol. Syrupy mouthfeel. Long sweet finish with residual spice and some herbal characters. Pretty nicely balanced Belgian strong ale with strong dark fruit characters. Looking forward to the next one.

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2017 Отличный Бельгийский эль от Hoegaarden.Пиво очень сильно пенится, к слову сказать это один из самых красивых элей по цвету на моей памяти. Имеет приятный аромат фруктов и Карамели. На вкус - классический Б.эль; Карамель,фрукты слегка чувствуется алкоголь. Просто божественно-мягкое послевкусие.

PlutonowyMan (885) - Baardegem, BELGIUM - SEP 15, 2017
Barwa bordowo rubinowa, nieco brązowa. Piana w kolorze złamanej bieli, wysoka i trwała. Topniejąc tworzy dość gruby kożuch na powierzchni piwa. Aromat słodki, owocowy z wyraźnie wiejskimi nutami i przyprawowymi akcentami, guma balonowa. Smak zdecydowanie bardziej przyprawowy, ziołowy, w tle cały czas plączą się słodkie owoce i guma balonowa. Goryczka dość intensywna i wyraźna, trawiasta, przyprawowa idealnie się tutaj odnajduje. Alkohol perfekcyjnie schowany. Piwo ma całkiem sporo ciała a przy wysokim wysycenie odnosi się wrażenie, że tym piwem można się nawet najeść.

Bottle at home. Light brown color, white head. Very good strong and sweet taste. I have seen this beer for a long time, but never tasted it before. Liked it very much!
