  • A Rich Tapestry of Dark Berries and Spice, with a Forbiddenly Tempting, Complex Finish


    Hoegaarden De Verboden Vrucht, or Forbidden Fruit, is a Belgian Strong Dark Ale known for its rich and complex flavor profile.


    This intense, complex ale boasts an 8.5% ABV. It pours a warm amber color, releasing aromas of dark fruits, orange peel, and coriander, leading to a taste profile that is both fruity and sweet, with a distinct, dry, tobacco-like finish​​.


    The Forbidden Fruit is traditionally brewed with a blend of dark malts and flavored with spices, undergoing a slow second fermentation in the bottle. This meticulous process ensures the beer matures into a delicious tasting beverage, presenting a complex flavor that beautifully balances sweet and dry notes.


    The beer is further characterized by its dark red appearance, softly sweet profile, and full-bodied mouthfeel, flavored with spices, hinting at its mythical allure reminiscent of the forbidden fruit.


    The Hoegaarden Brewery, based in Belgium, has a long history dating back to 1445, with a reputation for producing a variety of unique beers. De Verboden Vrucht is one of the distinct types offered by the brewery, alongside other well-known brews like the original Hoegaarden wheat beer.


    The beer's rich, spicy, and fruity profile pairs well with hearty meats, aged cheeses, and rich desserts that can complement its complexity and depth.
