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.

Pours an average frothy light brown head that mostly diminishes. Body is red brown and hazy. Aroma contains dark bread, molasses, lemon, dough, grape, raisin, forst fruits, chery, wine and port, coriander and other spices, and alcohol. Flavor starts off light acidic and light bitter, to go to sweet and to finish light bitter. Body is light to medium, texture is watery and carbonation soft to flat. A good complex beer that would have scored higher if carbonation wasn’t too low and texture would have been less watery.

In a Rochefort goblet ..Kinda like "Rochefort light" ...This number 6 is a good session style dark Belgian . Raisin ,bread, milk chocolate , boozy , complex nose . Khaki head that subsides into a brown liquid gloop ... Hey , look its a bitter rich beer that despite lacking the boost of its big brothers , is still flavoursome ... The family personality traits are there. Good shit.

Heerlijk fruitig biertje. Wat donker maar een heerlijke donkere smaak wat perfect bij de herfst past.

Bottle. Hazy rust coloured red with a moderately lasting bubbly off white head. Earthy aroma, some forest fruits, strawberry, vanilla. Taste is of forest fruits, orange, hints of tomato and red pepper too. Medium to high carbonation, smooth mouthfeel.

Bottle from Auchan. Pours golden with average head. Sweet smell with aromas of caramel, chocolate, coffee, herbs and banana. Taste is similar, great mouthfeel, perfect carbonation, pleasantly sweet but still refreshing. Nice one.

Bottle. Hazy amber-brown with a huge beige head. Smell of dried fruits, nuts, caramel and candy. Sweet, dominated by malty and fruity flavors of prunes, raisins, caramel, yeast, spices. Medium-bodied, strong carbonation. Relatively easy drinking. Decent.

Amber orange colour. Very fruity and caramel taste, but not overly sweet except for the aftertaste.

bartzluke (203) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 11, 2015
330 ml pour from room-temperature bottle into tulip glass. Red-orange and fairly opaque. Huge fully, bubbly head. Great retention and lots of lacing. Fruity, caramel, and biscuit. Full bodied. Very nice mouthfeel. Taste is dark fruit, some deep caramel sweetness, creamy maltiness, some plum. A flavorful and layer beer. Delicious.

Bottiglia. Un bel colore ambrato, torbido, con schiuma abbondante non particolarmente persistente. Veramente una buona birra, dal sapore appagante. Apprezzabili note di caramello e frutta (tra cui anche banana). Buona carbonatazione, alcol ben ammortizzato.
