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.

bonkiedeaap (240) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 2, 2014
Bottle from the bierschuur in Poppel. The beer has a gold/copper color and a very large white head, CO2 level is excellent. The aroma has clear tones of caramel and dark fruits. The taste is light and fruity. The taste becomes soft after a while and then there are tones noticable of caramel. A sweet sugary and carbonated mouthfeel you can experience in the aftertaste. A very good trappist, I’ve enjoyed it very much.

AgentAle (586) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 30, 2014
Aroma is fairly pale with faint fruit aromas and some grassiness. Some suphur hints aswell. Taste is a pretty pale sweet maltiness with some also pale yet well balanced bitterness. Taste finishes smooth. Body is a murky orange with fruit sediment in suspension. Bubbly pearl head retains fairly.

fhoublon (312) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - APR 27, 2014
Dégustée au Pub Italia à Ottawa en septembre 2008. Bière brune opaque. Mousse beaucoup, col épais beige, crémeux et très persistant. Odeur d’alcool, de levure et de sucre en finale. Douce, assez sucrée, assez amère en finale. Goût de café crème et d’alcool en finale, un peu de noisettes. Juste assez consistante, pas trop bourrative, alcool ne ressort pas trop.

guzgorog (224) - FRANCE - APR 26, 2014
Brune ambrée noisette, haut col de mousse blanche et crémeuse aissant une grosse dentelle sur le verre. Nez de caramel, biscuit et fruits secs. En bouche, légèrement amertume, bien sucrée, goût malté : caramel et biscuit. L’alcool est présent. Pas la meileure des rochefort mais bien sympathique quand même !

pours reddish-brown maintaining a thin but complete frothy beige head. aroma is earthy and sweet smelling yeast. carbonation is very lively in appearance and on the tongue. medium bodied with a long finish of ultra -ripe fruit. yum, best at cellar temp.
