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.

Bottle. Cloudy medium amber color with a small fizzy fair lacing off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, light yeasty. Flavor is moderate sweet and light bitter with a average duration. Body is medium to full, texture is oily and carbonation is lively. Very light and easy to drink.

33 cL bottle. Pours hazy brown with an orange hue, small sediments floating around. Thick creamy and light brown head. LOVELY floral yeast and slight sweet caramel aroma. Slight acidic and citric flavour, soon to go into a slight floral composition, with a solid sweet malt base. Ends in a slight spiced and distinct herbal finish. Great by all measures.

Ungstrup (38238) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 20, 2003
The aroma is sweet and fruity with notes of alcohol. The color is redbrown and slightly hazy with a beutiful light brown head. The flavor is fruity, alcohol sweet and "brown" (like a brown Belgian beer). An OK ale - but thin for a trappist.

Bottled. Dark brown colour, big beige creamy head. Sour grapefruit and earthy notes in aroma, very bitterish. Sweet plum along with grainy/mouldy earthy notes. Extremely complex, though still I find it quite boring. Some yeasty notes in finish.

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2010 A slightly sweeter and less complex version of the 8, nonetheless very nice flavor and reasonable complexity.

Burgundy coloured. very rich aroma with loads of banana and red berries. Medium bodied, big toffee flavour. Sweet. Loads of raspberries in the finish. A very distinct and flavourful beer

Papsoe (25059) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 15, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) The smaller sibling to the two great Rochefort-brothers is still quite a mature boy. Dark amber, hazy with a small tan head. Very fruity nose - fresh fruit rather. Lots of yeasty flavours here, dry with notes of cocoa and perhaps licorice. Spicy and solid alright but an easier beer to drink than the the two big Roches. Fine introduction to the style. 240599
