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.

Birra più delicata rispetto altre altre Rochefort, si distingue dalle sorelle per un tenore alcolico meno pronunciato, ma soprattutto per del sentori più floreali rispetto alle altre, anche che il fruttato si sente sempre chiaramente. All’aroma si percepiscono delle stupende note di the Darjeeling. Alla fine pulisce la bocca non lasciando quasi nessun retrogusto.

Dimmigt mahoganybrun med rejäl skumkrona. Doftar svagt av jäst,ek, karamell och malt. Smak av karamell, toffe &engelsk fruktkaka. Eftersmaken söt och inte speciellt lång. Lättdrucken för en trappist.

50belair (2188) - Florida, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Bottle at Specialty Beer Cellar. Cloudy light brown pour with an off white head. Sweet malt and brown sugar aromas. Effervescent with big malty notes. Some sweetness to it with brown sugar and caramel back beats. Good body and mouthfeel.

emartell (234) - Zapopan, Jalisco, MEXICO - JUN 20, 2014
Aromas deliciosos y delicados, notas dulces que desenbocan en aromas frutales, principalmente frutos negros, framvuezas, Zarzamoras y ligeramente cerezas. En cuanto a su apariencia color roho, ligeramente turbio y carbonatacion alta. Cuerpo medio y corona de espuma abundante y de alta retención. En boca suave, cremosa, especoada y frutal! Al paladar es algo compleja. De ser una cerveza que entra fácil, se concierte en una cerveza especiada, con el toque de sabor que brinda la levadura utilizada en las trapenses, finalizando von toques frutales muy bien definidos,frutos rojos y berrys. En resumen una muy buena cerveza, una mas de esta trapense, consiguiendo un gran equilibrio y un tremendo disfrute!

birra di classe niente da dire, ma fra le tre Rochefort è quella che mi è piaciuta meno.

Pour was pretty fizzy at first. Head was super fizzy too which made me think it wouldn’t last but it sat down to about a 1/4" and just stayed there like a champ. Nose is fruity, biscuits, caramels, toast, plum, grape, sweet malts, a touch of banana, and just a touch of yeasty spice. Flavor is similar with sweet balanced, long lasting malt and fruity yeast flavors. Really nice- WHY HAVE I NOT HAD THIS BEFORE??!

MonsterMagnet (158) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 18, 2014
Pours hazy ruby/brown with an off white head. Aroma: damp hay, port, leather, brown sugar. Taste: raisins, figs, apples, plums, rye, toffee. Medium body, fizzy carbonation, buttery sweet with some bitter with a slight sour tartness and some spices in the finish.

33 cl bottle split two ways. Murky light brown pour with a frothy small head that fades fairly quick. Nose has yeast, brown sugar and some floral notes. Taste has again yeast, syrup, raisins, figs and some herbal notes.
