3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 13, 2012 330ml bottle. (In a blind horizontal dubbel tasting)
Rich brown, some red, thick tight creamy head. Sweet fruity ginger, a little hoppy aroma - potent but mellow. Soft but lively carbonation, some light hint of alcohol. Grainy body with a tangy but gently hoppy component. Fairly full bodied, very pleasant, but not a patch on their outstanding higher-octane numbers.
Rerate 330ml bottle (7:4:7:4:14=3.6)
So beautifuly mellow. No alcohol at all. Dam, this is a beer worthy of great respect. I am astonished that it is 7.5%. The mellowness is wonderful.

Not even close to the 8 and 10. Weird. Too fizzy and not flavorful enough. Stick with the higher powered siblings.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark amber with a dense low head. Sweet and yeasty aroma with notes of chocolate, fruits and some liquorice. The flavours are tart and dark dried fruits with some complex spices. It is less sweet than itís bigger brothers, and not quite as complex.

Bottle from BevMo in Vacaville. Surprisingly, I didnít like this compared to other from Rochefort. There was way too much carbination, and it tasted more like sparkling water than beer. I canít understand how this brew lacks where itís siblings blow the competition away.

Bottle. Sweet smell of malt, a little bit like wine, fruity with some yeast in it. A little bit of fresh bread shines through. The head is rather small, foamy-fizzy and fast disappearing. The body is a deep red-brown. It starts light bitter, quite big amount of carbonation in it. The body is rather medium, dry and with lively carbonation, the finish is rather light. Very nice one!
