ROCHEFORT

Rochefort 6,

World Beer Championships Gold Medal 2006

 

Rochefort 6, sometimes called "Red Cap," has a firm body with an unrestrained malty flavor and long finish; the bouquet holds fruity yeast notes that suggest fresh-baked dark bread
 

Rochefort 8,

World Beer Championships Gold Medal 2004, 2006

 

Rochefort 8, or "Green Cap," is brown coloured with red highlights. The flavor is deep, vigorous and complex, with firm body to support the strength; the aroma has elusive notes of fresh fruit, spice, leather, figs, and just possibly a hint of smokiness in cascading layers. Suave, or "wild and unrestrained," this is a full-bodied, rich ale with alcohol at 9.2% abv.

 

Rochefort 10,

World Beer Championships Gold Medal 2004, 2006

 

Rochefort 10, or "Blue Cap," packs sauvage, incendiary flavors around a bold 11.3% abv, notes of earth, fire, port wine, violets, and possibly tropical fruit, all in cascading layers.
