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.

Appearance: Pours murky amber brown with a thick off-white head that quickly dissipates, no lacing. 3/5 Aroma: Fruit, yeast, malts, brown sugar, caramel, herbs and spices. 8/10 Taste: Sweet malt, caramel, chocolate, dark fruits and spice, with slight hint of citric. Moderate sweetness and tartness, alcohol is well hidden. Quite watered down, make it eazy to gulp. Sweet spicy yeasty finish. 8/10 Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, light carbonated. 3/5 Overall 12/20

The last of the three Rochefort beers for me to try but the first to have in my Trappistes Rochefort glass. The 11.2 oz. bottle came from a Ft. Worth area HEB. Going into the trappist glass it delivers a light amber body topped by an healthy egg-brown head. Taking a sniff of it I find yellow raisin, yeast and and a ribbon candy sweetness. A taste gives me an Orval-Duvel feedback, grain, yeast, apricot with some spice/herb in the background. Nice but well behind the 10 and the 8 in my preference.

JtanK (651) - Kraków, POLAND - NOV 13, 2017
Mild, slightly sweet aroma of dried fruit and malt. Pours dark amber/ruby with a large head. In taste not entirely sweet, but not dry either, at first malty with caramel, followed by breadinesss & raisins and then some spiciness, ends with mild earthy bitterness. Mid-full body, fairly high carbonation. Tasty, but quite reserved, nothing flashy.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2018 Ale Belga trapense. Mucha espuma blanca que va desapareciendo. Color: ámbar oscuro. Gusto dulce sin exagerar con un ligerísimo toque amargo. Malta, levadura, pan, caramelo, fruta seca. Cuerpo medio. Se bebe muy bien para ser una cerveza de abadía. El sabor es excelente. No se nota el alcohol. No tiene la complejidad y el cuerpo de la chimay y es menos dulce que la trappe o la grimbergen. Está muy buena.

ciocanelu (3203) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - OCT 28, 2017
Hazy dark amber color with off-white head. Aroma has fruity yeast esters, dark toasted malts and some brown sugar. Quite classic belgian ale nose. Taste starts balanced with some tosated malt character, follows with slightly acrid yeast notes and finishes with a light earthy bitterness. Medium body and carbonation. Decent, classic, nothing special though.
