datrael (169) - Kraków, POLAND - JUL 29, 2016
W aromacie zbożowo, owocowo - figi, rodzynki, białe owoce - i drożdżowo. W wyglądzie bursztynowe ze sporą, gęstą, białą pianą. W smaku drożdże, zboża i owoce nadające całości słodyczy, tak samo jak w aromacie głównie rodzynki, figi, brzoskwinie. Słodko i całkiem przyjemnie. Bardzo dobre, przyjemne piwo, rozgrzewające. Nie jest to taka potęga jak dwa pozostałe Rocheforty, ale i tak zdecydowanie daje radę.

MartR (282) - Aespa, ESTONIA - JUL 29, 2016
Pours in all hazy and with a nice creamy two-fingers on top. The flavors really turn you around. Spicy Belgian yeast profile and loads of fruitiness. Dried plums and apricots. Sweet malts come in with light touch of alcohol. Pretty light palate and easy to drink so the glass was empty in a matter of minutes.

tillmac62 (679) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - JUL 18, 2016
BBD 8/1/16. Pours a slightly cloudy medium amber with a nice dash of garnet. World class head volume, lacing and retention. Outstanding nose of light caramel with a slight char, raisins, figs, hints of plum and a very subtle hint of clove over a biscuit base. Light body that is smooth. Superb carbonation / body balance. Light effervescence arrives in the middle and gains intensity resulting in a prickly finish. The flavor profile is very good but lacks the complexity and intensity to be outstanding. Separation is a bit lacking but the flavors of the nose can be discerned. It begins a bit charred then flows to light fruit and caramel. Bitterness is virtually absent. The finish reveals a bit of clove.

Fules (670) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUL 7, 2016
Óriási, sokáig tartó piszkosfehér hab. Kissé élesztős, fűszeres illat, csekély gyümölcsös beütéssel. Finom karamelles, fűszeres ízvilág, de elmarad a nagyobb testvérektől. Kicsit sok a szénsav.

Nice red shining color. Basically no head. Smell has wood and raisins. Taste is Sweet with more raisins and raisins. Unfortunately very high carbonation which overlaps the taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330 ml bottle. Pours copper with an off-white head. The taste is slightly yeasty with some surprising hints of coffee. Medium to full body with lively carbonation. The taste is sweet and malty - caramel and some coffee again -along with some acidity with the aroma of stone fruits and also some alcohol.
