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.

Juks (449) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 14, 2017
330ml bottle. Pours hazy brown, big beige head. Aroma is sweet. Prunes, gingerbread, raisins, barley in aroma. Dark bread, basement, prunes in taste. Medium bodied, over average carbo. Dry crisp finish, different spices I can’t recognize, maybe cinnamon. Well covered alco. Different, lot’s of tastes. I’m not sure about it.

3.6
erikaraeb (138) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 12, 2017
Yeasty, burnt sugar aroma with echoes of such in the taste, along with dried fruits, toasted malt, and peat. Ruddy chestnut in colour with creamy head that sticks around. Solid, well-rounded dubbel-type brew.

3.2
Zilverenmaan (174) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - MAY 28, 2017
Aroma: sweet malts, dark fruits but pear syrup rather than plums. Some alcohol. Appearance: pear syrup. Mouthfeel: pear syrup. Taste: pear syrup, boozy finish. Carbonation adding a gentle fizz. To be blunt, this is just sweetness and booze.

3.5
dimeon (217) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - MAY 25, 2017

lbianchi66 (390) - FRANCE - APR 4, 2017
Robe ambrée avec un peu de dépôt. La mousse est beige et tient bien. Arômes alcool, vineux malt, levure. Goût malté, caramel, fruits jaunes. On reste sur les fruits confits. Texture légèrement crémeuse. La carbonatation est fine et abondante. Un bonne bière.

comperchris (142) - - MAR 23, 2017
Pours a dark brown with tan head. Smells like barnyard, basement aromas, woody, raisin. Tastes malty and strong yeast

3.1
GuideDogSaint (1406) - Xiamen, CHINA - MAR 10, 2017
330ml bottle at OnLYou, Jimei. Pours hazy mid brown with a thin head. Aroma of malt with some bread and dried fruit. Slightly harsh sweet taste. Sweetish finish.

4.1
Cristobal37 (1123) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 19, 2017
Transparent brown with white foamy head. Like many other strong belgian ales the aroma is bold, this one with cherries, wood barrel, vanilla and Christmas spices. Light body with a brandy or cognac finish. Dry with grape and ’purple drank’ flavors on the finish. Not boozy but reminds me of a nice balanced Remy Martin. Not my favorite style, because many seem to do the same thing, but this one tastes good and the label is great!
