The lower gravity cousin to Rochefort 10. Nicknamed “Spéciale” (‘The Special’), this beer is the most recent production. The Rochefort 8 has a more tawny colour and a more pronounced aroma, with an even richer fruitiness (a slight undertone of fig?) and a little more spiced dryness, like that of a cake, which gives a balanced finish to the final notes. Vegan friendly.
