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.

circinus (225) - SWEDEN - NOV 29, 2014
Bottle 33 cl from Barleywine, Copenhagen. Orange/brown, with a beige nice head. Orange marmelade, caramel, coca-cola, slight sweetness, some citrus, some toffee. Medium body, medium/lively carbonation, very fitting and nice body. Refreshing, great to have these trappist flavours in a more refreshing lighter beer as opposed to the heavier ones.

Franzen (354) - SWEDEN - NOV 29, 2014
Dark syrup, honey, flowers and some overripe red apples in aroma. Greyish brown colour. Refreshing bit acidic taste, a bit citrusy bit of honey sweetness n finish. Light and refreshing for beeing a 7,5% Belgian strong ale

zizzybalubba (1503) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - NOV 24, 2014
330 mL bottle from SoHo Organic Market, Elizabeth City, NC. Light brown pour with a foamy off-white head. Unusual aroma of Earth, chocolate, rye bread, and oak that quite honestly had me a bit hesitant at trying this beer. The taste is much better with a slightly sweet malt flavor which slowly fades into dark fruit. The carbonation helps to lift the flavors from the palate keeping any one particular component from being too heavy. Once I got past the aroma, this is a nice beer.

Akiro (5) - ITALY - NOV 22, 2014 does not count
L’aspetto è decisamente spettacolare la schiuma è bella densa alta e ci mette molto prima di abbassarsi le bollicine non mancano mai e l’aspetto della birra è corposo di un colore biondo caramellato scuro. Il sapore è buono e particolare pizzica un po’ sulla lingua forse è frutto di una spezia oppure un pizzico di miele di castagno non lo sappiamo.

GuideDogSaint (483) - Xiamen, CHINA - NOV 22, 2014
330ml bottle at Beer Station, Xiamen. Pours hazy yellow brown with a white head. Aroma is malty caramel. Medium sweet finish, certainly thinner than the other Rocheforts.

goozen (3068) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - NOV 21, 2014
Bottle 0,33ltr: Hazy red/brown colored brew with an subtle bitter taste and hints of dried fruits and some caramel. At last rated the weakest of the Rochefort family.
