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.

Cerveja maravilhosa, amargor quase inexistente em virtude da harmonia da cerveja, espumação persistente e sabor incrível

Zlotta (317) - Bonn, GERMANY - JUL 7, 2015
0,33 l bottle from drinks-of-the-world.de, bottled in march 2014 (over a year old). Clear, luscious, orangeish amber with a huge, creamy, stable, tan to white head. Pleasant, fruity-yeasty aroma of peach, raisins, coconut, cane sugar, apples and dates. Pleasant, fruity-yeasty taste of coconut, dates, peach, cane sugar and hints of chocolate. Medium long, just slightly bitter finish with a minimally warming, alcoholic note. Medium body, highly effervescent and creamy mouthfeel, very lively carbonation. Another great trappist ale with such a nice body and round taste. Only the high carbonation interrupts the drinkability. Very nice!

Balanced on sweet and bitter. Sweet foam test good. Easy to drink but worthy to drink.

mathieuc (2191) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 4, 2015
Pours a clear copper with a medium-high white head that leaves some lacing. Nose is peppery, fruity (bananas) and just what you’d expect, really. Taste is of slight belgian sugar, fruits and spices. Pretty dry overall. Body is medium and carbonation high and prickly. Overall a good belgian strong but far from the level of its two higher siblings.

Rated based on notes taken 25 June 2012 -- This is a solid trappist brew. I really need to buy some to age and see how well they do.
