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.

Beautiful deep amber color, big off white head. Awesome retention. Aroma: Peach, tangerine, malts, citrus. Taste has all that plus red fruits, honey, chestnut, lots of yeast, raisins, bubblegum and even banana. Very complex. Medium to full body, lively carbonation. Insanely smooth. Awesome!

Espuma presente mas não duradoura, aroma de frutas e ervas. Gosto segue aroma, com corpo não tão forte. Mais suave é fácil frente às irmãs

Arek (533) - Zielona Góra & Wrocław, POLAND - MAY 6, 2015
Bottle 0.33 l, Drink Hala, Wrocław, Poland.
Ciemnobursztynowe, mętne piwo o obfitej i puszystej pianie oraz słodowym, owocowym aromacie. W smaku gęste i złożone, owocowe - cytrusy i owoce egzotyczne, lekko biszkoptowe z rozgrzewającym i trochę alkoholowym finiszem.

SkillsFactory (146) - ITALY - MAY 5, 2015
Ambrata carica con riflessi aranciati, schiuma poco persistente. Aroma di frutti scuri maturi come prugna e ciliegia, malti tostati e lieviti, appena versata leggero sentore erbaceo molto volatile. Magari una bottiglia non in gran forma, ma il naso mi pare un po' sotto tono. Al palato molto carbonata, corpo leggero, ciliegie sotto spirito e lieve prugna, note tostate di ritorno insieme ad una bella nota aspra, leggera nota alcolica. Retro olfatto di lievito e malto.

Amber/rode kleur, weinig schuim, licht bitter, fruitig, inderdaad iets van thee. Erg lekker.

KW92 (280) - Warszawa, POLAND - APR 28, 2015

WYGLĄD: Barwa miedziana, opalizujące (zmętnione po wlaniu osadu z dna). Piana średnio pęcherzykowa, krótka.
AROMAT:Dość intensywny. Słodowość, suszone morele, nuty korzenne i kwiatowe. Czuć wyraźnie alkohol.
SMAK: Korzenno-słodowe. Dość długi alkoholowo-korzenny posmak.
OGÓLNIE: Na pewno zyska przy dłuższym leżakowaniu, degustowałem je przeszło 4 lata PRZED upływem terminu ważności. Być może z biegiem lat piwo się "ułoży".

Robe ambrée sombre, opaque. Peu de mousse. Saveurs de malt, biscuit, prune, pruneau, fruits noirs. Légèrement herbale. Arrière goût vanillé. Texture crémeuse, carbonatation fine. Longue en bouche. Une excellente trappiste.
