Rochefort Trappist
"6" or Red Cap

The History of "6"

Rochefort Trappist 6 is named after its original gravity measured in "Belgian degrees" - a brewing scale no longer used today. It was first sold to the public in 1953.


Reddish-brown color with amber-gold highlights; soft body leads to earthy flavors and an herbal character. Refined, soft spiciness in the bouquet finishes with a bit caramel. Bottle-conditioned for soft natural carbonation.

Serving Suggestion

Cream soups and rich dishes; can support vinaigrette dressing. Wonderful to clear the palate when served with concentrated, creamy foods. Serve in traditional Rochefort stemmed goblet.
