Murky brown with a mild tan head that dies quickly.
Noticeably sweet with heavy brown sugar and dark fruit, with the alcohol poking through at the end.
Lighter than the other 2 Rochefort beers, this might have the best taste of all 3. Again noticeably sweet with a ton of dark fruit (fig, raisin, date) on the initial flavor, with lighter fruits making their way through to the finish (apple, apricot) and a tinge of chocolate. Alcohol is very light, but sticks on the tongue a bit.
Medium body with a healthy dose of carbonation. The carbonation works well to accent the lighter fruit flavors and give the beer a well rounded complexity.
This is my favorite Rochefort brew simply for its drinkability. Its so hard to find, but well worth it when you do. Its easily lighter than the other 2 in flavor profile, but still maintains a vast array of flavors and complexity.
