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.

Beer by the best brewery in the world (of it’s up to me). However, Rochefort 8 and 10 are slightly better. full body, creamy, average carbonation, long finish, lightly bitter, medium sweetness, brown, frothy.

Amber beer, brown head. Hazy. Aroma of sweet fruits, spices, herbs, maybe some earthy aromas. taste: take light tea, mix with a little bit of wine, a little bit of of fruits. Add some alcohol and high saturation. And thats with light body. Beer is really refreshing, drinkable. I would say that I like it more than stronger brother of this, number 8.

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.
