COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer, the oldest of the three Rochefort Trappist beers, has the reddish colour of autumn leaves, a soft body and an earthy, herbal palate (a hint of Darjeeling tea), which develops into a deep fruitiness.

Bottle. Much simpler a stronger varieties. Not so interesting. All the same, only the aroma and taste are less saturated

Pours a hazy reddish amber color with some chunks floating around in the beer. There is a thick creamy off white head. The aroma is bread malts, earthy, and some fig. The taste is is very bready, earthy,spices, and some fruits. I pick up apple, raisins, and some tea. This beer is very light compared to what I was expecting but does have some hop character to help balance it out. To be honest I feel like it is lacking somewhat in the aroma and taste yet it is still an outstanding beer and I highly recommend it.

Butelka, warka do 05/11/2019, wiec bardzo swieze, nieulozone. Ciemno bursztynowe z czerwonymi przeblyskami piwo z dosc ladna i wysoka piana, ktora niestety bardzo szybko sie redukuje. Aromat glownie kwasne, ciemne owoce a la wisnie, czeresnie + rodzynki + alkohol. Czuc tez klasztorne drozdze, po ogrzaniu dodatkowo cos a la slodkie, kandyzowane figi i jakies bardzo delikatne ziolowe nuty. Generalnie dosc dublowy aromat. W smaku ladnie wymieszane odczucia, jest i lekka kwaskowatosc owocowa i slodycz karmelowo-figowa i delikatna goryczka - bardzo odswiezajaca mieszanka, z wysokim wysyceniem lekko musujacym na jezyku, alkoholu duzo mniej niz w aromacie. wytrawne. dobre piwo, lekkie w odbiorze, takie do wypicia przed poludniem :)

Warm nose and good looking beer in the glass. moderate head, rich brown color. Rich tastes of malt, raisin, toffee. don’t notice the alcohol, so very smooth and yummy. Overall, just a really good beer to drink. Depth and complexity without being over the top ... could definitely drink more than one.

Klar, rødlig gylden med stabilt groft skum. Svag duft med sødme og blomster. En antydning af alkohol. Smagen er fyldig og livlig med karamel og malt. En lidt påtrængende fyldig sødme, der bliver holdt lidt i skak af en let bitterhed. Eftersmagen er sød uden megen bitterhed. Smager ikke så meget fra gæren, som andre trappistøl.

0,33 bottle purchased at the Skopje Beer Shop (RIP) and consumed in Kosovo. BB 09/2018, so I guess the beer has been bottle in 2013 (over 1 year old). Pours a typical amber color, a bit cloudy with a very gassy and persistent ivory head which stays there. Nose: mild candy fruit, spices. Mouth: session beer feel for a 7,5% Belgian Strong Ale, easy drinking, dry end with a spicy body and a mild fruity aroma. Candy orange a bit of coriander. A very nice brew.
