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.

Boxereddy (476) - BELGIUM - MAY 30, 2016
Wazig roodachtig bruin bier met een flinke beige schuimkraag. Aroma van gedroogd fruit, bruine suiker, leer, hout en wat cacao. Smaak: rozijnen, karamel, specerijen. Zacht mondgevoel, vol met lichte bitterheid en mooi koolzuur. Korte afdronk met bitterig eind.

Mycket friskt skum på en mörkt bärnstensfärgad öl. Russin, torkad frukt, karamell, mörkt socker, sötma, väl gömd alkoholhalt, torr. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mariuspoenari (1532) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 21, 2016
Clear amber orange with a tall off-white head. Smells like caramel, strawberry jam, dried fruit, flowers. The taste follows the same notes, sweet and mildly bitter. Smooth mouthfeel and a sticky sweet aftertaste.

ALIBALI (692) - Kiel, GERMANY - MAY 9, 2016
Sehr trocken. Spritzig prickelnd, fast wie ein Blondes. Klar, ein bisschen süßlich. Irgenwie aber auch "künstlich". Der Querulant sozusagen :). Zwischen den Stühlen das "tripelige Dubbel";). Kleine Flasche von Carefour aus Belgien ca. 1-1,50Euro.

BlueGaljoen (116) - FRANCE - MAY 5, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2016 Robe miel foncé. Carbonatation longue. Bière posée sur une longueur équilibrée. Alcool présent mais très bien maîtrisée. Amertume très ronde. Agréable sur toute la dégustation. Des notes de pain, de noix, sucre candy. Une grande bière !

onceblind (7322) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 30, 2016
Hazy deep rustic Amber with a thin ivory lasting cap. Lovely nose of raisins and dates and a little currant and cherries. Smooth and rustic fruity flavor featuring some dates, cherries and currant without being overly sweet or juicy, lovely gentle dark tea tones, and a soft fruity finish.

Teran (288) - Belgrade, SERBIA - APR 30, 2016
Dark honey colour, impressive light beige top, wonderful look. Complex but not loud aroma and taste. Distinguished strong ale. Divine bread aftertaste. I would like to open one bottle everyday. Do not want to disturb this beer with many words. Try it and enjoy!
