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.

Mariox (291) - Warsaw, POLAND - SEP 30, 2017
Aromat ciemnych owoców i drożdzy. W smaku dobrze zachowany balans między słodyczą, a goryczką. mocno wysycone. alkohol średnio ukryty

pleispleis (142) - Maccagno, ITALY - SEP 30, 2017
bottiglia 33 cl, bel cappello di schiuma molto persistente, color arancio velato, al naso malto luppolo lievito fragola, in bocca è fruttata e zucchero di canna, carbonatazione moderata, corpo rotondo abbastanza oleosa, l'alcool è ben bilanciato quasi nascosto, dolce con leggero amaro. Sarà la mia bottiglia ma rispetto la madia delle recensioni mi sembra una birra molto sotto tono. Riproverò 30.09.17

Mishnok (374) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2017
Quite a sour aroma. Pours darker than I was expecting, a rich brown with a good head at first. Quite a complex palate, fruity, plums, raisins, obvious high alcohol. Grows on you after a while. Nice flavours

UPDATED: SEP 23, 2017 Underwhelmed with this. Dark amber red. Typical tastes of a Belgium double without being particularly interesting. Was surprised by how weak and watery I found it. Much prefer the 8 but do need to try this again.,a

Good, but a long ways from my favorite Belgium. It grows on you as you drink it. Notes of dried bread crust. Slightly sour, very Effervescent with a dry finish. It would be very good with some quality cheese and crackers ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I'm South Korean. I served mandatory army service in U.S. Army post. I bought it at P.X. with my fellow soldier, and at that time I didn't know the fame of this beer. I can not forget when I drink it at first time. This beer is the top of my beers.

GhostS (486) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - SEP 17, 2017
Aromă cu multe fructe caramelizate și dulceață, puține fructe fermentate (gen caise și piersici), flori uleioase de câmp, ceva caise uscate și drojdii. Gust plăcut, ușor dulce (foarte plăcut și bine combinat) și puțin amar, cu multe fructe caramelizate, ceva fructe fermentate, note de drojdii belgiene, puțină aciditate datorată carbogazării destul de înalte. Foarte bună. O belgiană ușoară, balasantă și plăcută.
