Trappistes Rochefort 8 9.2% ABV
Rochefort Brewery (Brasserie de Rochefort) is a Belgian brewery that produces four beers designated as Trappist beers. The brewery is associated with the Rochefort Abbey, which originated in the thirteenth century. The current brewery dates from 1899.
The earliest mention of a brewery at the monastery dates from 1595. The abbey and its brewery were closed in 1794. The abbey was re-established in 1887 and the brewery was re-established in 1899. Around fifteen monks currently live at Rochefort Abbey.
The water for the beer is drawn from a well inside the monastery walls. Rochefort uses Pilsener and Munich-type malts, and Hallertau and Golding hops.
Yellowish-brown in colour, with more fruits in the aroma and a slight amount of Demi-Sec.
