At Vrooden Brewery, we brew our German beers in the purest style while respecting the Reinheitsgebot. But we said to ourselves that, for once, we could override this rule. We prensent to you Le Fruit défendu, a raspberry schwarzbier at 7.5% alcohol. The perfect blend of raspberry combined with the caramel and chocolate flavors of our traditional schwarzbier, it will convince you from the first sip.
The perfect match according to Martin Thibault, Les Coureurs des Boires
This liquefied pastry of a beer can easily become a treat on its own, as you are lazing about on your couch at the end of a hard day’s work. It will also pair beautifully with liver pâté or foie gras hors d’oeuvres, as the raspberry’s acidity will cut through each bite’s generous fat content. Those who’d prefer to stay in dessert mode will surely find a delicious cheesecake to bite into, or might even discover that a simple bowl of vanilla ice cream can play off of this beer’s malty features quite beautifully.
7.5% alc./vol IBU 20. Black lager. Caramel, chocolate and raspberry flavor.
