Holding this directly under a light, its burning brilliant amber/neon orange body is revealed. Slightly hazed with an aggressive amount of carbonation which gives a crackling sound to the finger's worth of creamy egg shell white head that's yielded after a gentle pour.

A subtle mustiness lies under soft and syrupy marachino cherries and skins from overly ripe red apples. Notes of Anjou and Bartlett pears come off as bright. Sticky raisons and figs give a cake-like impression. Fruit cake comes to mind now that I thought that. Floral characters mix in with its sweet side giving it a more natural/earthy scent. A spicy undertone and sweet alcohol tickle the nostrils. The nose is rich and sweet but nothing bursts from the glass. It's tamed and leaves some wonder as to what to expect.

My first impression is that it's quite soft and refined and not nearly as big as its other brothers. An earthy/musty/floral character comes through first, sliding to all corners of the palate. Spicy alcohol pinches the back of the palate and steers its way into the finish. Like the rest of the beer, it's soft and almost delicate in nature. Overly ripe red apples are the most apparent of the sweet fruity characters that make their home on the middle of the tongue. Marachino cherries can still be picked out and paired with the alcohol, I think of cherry cough syrup without the medicinal quality. Rich notes of freshly baked bread come at the very end.

Medium to full bodied with a foamy texture that I get out of a lot of Belgians. Well balanced with the alcohol only accentuating the sweetness. Soft and delicate throughout.

A finely crafted Belgian ale with no real flaw. My experience with the Rochefort offerings I've had is that their richness comes in the feel and weight of the body moreso than the flavour. If that were adjusted a bit where the flavours were made bolder, they would be exceptional beers, including this one in front of me now. Well worth a try but not my favorite for the style.
