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.

Butelka 0,33l Kolor mocny bursztyn w orang, piana słaba, przegazowane, trochę owoców, cytrusów. W smaku ziemia i drożdże. Jak na Trapistów zawodzi.

Lankkipoika (1) - - DEC 8, 2015 does not count
Helposti juotavaa prosentteihin nähden. Tasapainoisen maukasta, lopussa hieman hiivanmakua. Ei mitään kitkeryyttä. Kerrassaan hieno ja tasapainoinen trappist.
