Rochefort 8 is the low ABV and more recent beer by Trappistes Rochefort. Pours a hazy reddish brown, with a big white tan head. Aromas are dry and fruity, with figs, dark fruits, citrus, orange and earthy malt. Taste is sweet, full bodied, with bread, dark fruits with a hoppy aftertaste. Biterness is well-balanced with the sweet fruit notes.
