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.

Botttle from Plonk. Clear pale red brown. Huge bubbly head. Flavour is malty with some fruity yeast esters. High carbonation, somewhat thin mouthfeel. Sweet up front with dry, lightly bitter and slight warming alcohol finish. Nice.

This dubbel almost sings to me when it is poured. Foam is great and the small bubbles the form of bursts loudly when they burst, and it already sounds promising. Foam fades over time into a thin layer. As expected, it has an inviting aroma of fruit. I think it’s plums and figs I can smell, but it is also clearly something citrus in its aroma. The flavor has a light citrus and a slightly more acidic fruity flavor that ends up in a warming malt sweetness. Mouth feeling is something special, relatively easy and very frothy and live. Can almost be compared slightly with champagne. As the other two Rochefort is no. 6 a class of its own, and I highly recommend it. I think really it will be great for cheese.

Zlotta (444) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - JUL 7, 2015
0,33 l bottle from drinks-of-the-world.de, bottled in march 2014 (over a year old). Clear, luscious, orangeish amber with a huge, creamy, stable, tan to white head. Pleasant, fruity-yeasty aroma of peach, raisins, coconut, cane sugar, apples and dates. Pleasant, fruity-yeasty taste of coconut, dates, peach, cane sugar and hints of chocolate. Medium long, just slightly bitter finish with a minimally warming, alcoholic note. Medium body, highly effervescent and creamy mouthfeel, very lively carbonation. Another great trappist ale with such a nice body and round taste. Only the high carbonation interrupts the drinkability. Very nice!

Balanced on sweet and bitter. Sweet foam test good. Easy to drink but worthy to drink.
