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.

kaserov (362) - Oviedo, SPAIN - SEP 29, 2016
Color entre mbar y marrn claro, turbio, con capa de espuma de un blanco sucio de un dedo de grosor. Carbonatacin en media (muy presente y necesaria en boca). Aroma frutal (la 6 y la 8 de Rochefort contienen ambas algo frutal que mi nariz capta pero no es capaz de desentraar, pueden ser higos, pero como nunca he probado los higos, no puedo decirlo). Tambin huele como a humedad (pero no a la humedad tpica de algunas IPAs); es como si la cerveza hubiera estado "encerrada" un tiempo en un ambiente que favorezca la humedad. El sabor es afrutado tambin (con presencia de los posibles higos previamente citados), algo dulce, con final muy ligeramente alcohlico y muy placentero. Todo un cervezn.

Blueshawk (465) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 11, 2016
- braun-trbe Farbe mit leichter Schaumbildung - leichte Noten nach Trockenobst, Karamell, Banane und etwas Koriander - passende Carbonisierung - sehr schner, aber auch schwerer Antrunk - diese wrzige Se ist schon sehr gewhnungsbedrftig - im Abgang vermischen sich dann alle Noten nochmals, wobei das Bananenaroma doch leicht die Oberhand gewinnt Fazit: Guter Einstieg fr belgische Trappisten-Biere

mezr (115) - California, USA - AUG 21, 2016
Poured from a 11.2 oz bottle into a tulip. Color is a hazy amber and it has a moderate, foamy tan head made up of tiny bubbles. Zero lacing. Floral and fruity aromas with some caramel. Medium-light body, a bit thin, with spice and sweet-alcohol taste. Finish is rather abrupt. Rather uninteresting.

A belgian (Trappist), unfiltered, brown ale with high, light head. Aroma is malt, caramel, light prune, light tea? Taste is sweet and light bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gehbe (305) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - AUG 18, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2016 Pours clear amber with a big off-white head, some lacing. Nose of caramel, zest, spice, toast, baguette, a bit of fruit and yeast. Tastes medium sweet with some carbonation sourness following it up, almost no bitterness. Medium body, high carbonation, very drinkable. Lovely and dangerous - too drinkable for the amount of ABV.

[backlog] 08-12-15 / bottle bought in Rochefort, drank at home. I started rating my beers with Untappd and a few basic notes. Now I want to rate them on ratebeer. So my rating sometimes lack some information. Just ignore it, it is for my personal statistics. Untappd-Rating: 3.75/5
