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.

Great nose, with caramel barley and rich butter. Taste doesnt disappoint it carries aromas and is fruity and fresh with a light sparkle.

Buona birra che però non ha soddisfatto completamente le mie aspettative. Buono l’aroma e buono il retrogusto però ho notato una schiuma troppo "porosa" e poco consistente, complice forse il bicchiere usato.

Bottle. Poured an unfiltered brown with a tan top that eventually dissipated. Taste of biscuit, sweet malt, caramel, and Belgian yeast. Medium carbonation, medium body

330ml bottle. Pours a murky brown color with enormous foamy cream colored head. Extremely carbonated. Fruity, spicy aroma as one would expect from the style. Smooth herbal flavor with fruity finish. Light bodied. Nicely done.

La germana petita de les rochefort però igual d’important que les germanas 8 i 10. Una cervesa a tenir en compte.

Bygers (741) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 30, 2014
Bottle 0,33l. Pours a dark amber colour with a tanned, yellowish, stable head. Aroma of caramel with a nutty and somewhat woody touch, some grassy hops, liquorice, apple, plums, banana, wheat, coriander and brown bread. Taste is malty, banana, bread, lots of liquorice, lingering on the tongue, aftertaste mildly hoppy with a hint of warming alcohol. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jorn69 (905) - Ängelholm, SWEDEN - JUL 27, 2014
Bottle @ Den Tatoverede Enke, Copenhagen 16/7-14. Fruity and yeasty with notes of dried fruits and plums, sweet, medium to full body with an oily texture. The finish is a bit short and somewhat dry, sweet and fruity.

mmmbeer (1240) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 24, 2014
11.2 oz bottle served in a tumbler- poured a cloudy and murky darkened amber with a tint of dirty maroon when held to a light source, lively medium carbonation, just a broken white ring for a head. Aroma of plums, wet autumn leaves, and citrus. Hits the mouth with a wide body, malt is hard to find among a variety of fruity esters that are not overpowering, finish is drying and with some earth and spotty acidity. Yea, it’s been awhile...
