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.

Dark amber with a large cream head that is full of bubbles in a variety of sizes. Aroma is a touch weak but you still get yeast and dark fruits. Flavor is ok but there is a metallic taste that is not my favorite.

Sublime la verse, la Fruit Dfendu est une classique ! Belle mousse ivoire, ambre avec de beaux reflets de topaze et de citrine peine trouble par une levure en suspension. Armes de malts caramel tout juste torrfis, cassonade, sucre candi, mre, myrtille, fraise, clmentine, framboise, citron vert, pamplemousse, poivre, muscade, gingembre, cerise, poire, prune... Un superbe pot-pourri darmes divers et varis avec une bonne dose dpices ! Cest propre, net, quilibr, gourmand, seyant et assemble avec adresse. Rien nest ostentatoire, mme lalcool, tout est bien dos. Pas dune complexit renversante mais il se dgage quelque chose de cette bire, une certaine noblesse je dirais. La carbonatation est bonne, juste comme il faut, la texture est ronde mais laisse parler le gaz carbonique, lamertume est lgre, impeccable dans le style, et lalcool est trs liquoreux avec des notes de poire williams et de kirsch. Un peu des saveurs de noix et darachides en bouche, toujours apprciables. Pas non plus les saveurs les plus hallucinantes mais tout comme le nez, cest noble, bien charpent, bien structur, bien quilibr. Des houblons discrets mais efficaces, des pices bien doss, un alcool au niveau, du fruit, du malt...que demander de mieux aprs tout ? Bouteille 33cl, V&B Grenoble.

TtV (426) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 11, 2017
Bottle 33cl. Light brown with a red glow and a thick, foamy off white head. Aroma of malts, grain and a hint of smoked wood. The taste is mildly bitter with hints of grain. The aftertaste is bitter with a warm glow of alcohol.

Jolie bire acajou tout en rondeur. Touche de noyau de cerise et dpices. Lalcool est prsent mais ne nuit pas la bire. Un jolie bire assez atypique.

kapusil (1266) - 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 its quite effervescent. Awesome beer.
