COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rader Ambrée is the subtle aromatization of a beer brewed in the ancient-way, re-fermented in its bottle, with a distillate of grain which has undergone a prolonged ageing process in oak casks. The primary fermentation is made with the same selected grains for the mash tubbing and the distillate. The distillate, aged in oak casks, is then added to the mash tub just before the re-fermentation in the bottle.

Hmm. That commercial description is incomprehensible... Somewhat shy, husky, grainy aroma with herbal hops, sweet vanilla and some notes of alcohol. Clear blonde body with fine carbonation is topped by a dense, fine-bubbled, white head that recedes slowly to lasting cover with some very nice lacing. Sweet nutty flavours are balanced with herbal and earthy hops with some vanilla and wood-like notes. Alcohol comes to the fore in the finish, then subsides to a floral aftertaste. Medium body with moderate carbonation that is strongly effervescent. Complex and interesting if not quite a show-stopper. Bottle (Bieropholie Dec. 2004).

lachesis (756) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - FEB 17, 2005
Light hazy aber color with light colored head. Soft aroma’s of malts, buttercaramels, some fruits and vanilla pudding. Soft mouthfeel with touch of crème brullée, malts, buttertoffee, some dried apricot, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cognac. THe high alcohol is well integrated in this softtasting beer.

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 4, 2005
(Bottled) Hazy amber color with floating yeast clumps. Slightly sour aroma, slightly alcoholic and cardboardy. Somewhat sweet, toffeeish flavor with some genever feeling. Medium-bodied, quite low-carbonated, slightly alcoholic palate. Hides the ABV very well. Not nearly as genevery as the blonde, but still quite pleasant and drinkable.

Lubiere (9752) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 20, 2005
Best before Feb. 2005. Bought 1.5 yrs ago. Hazy golden ale with a thick white head. Aroma of rising bread and alcohol. Sharp alcoholic gin in mouth, with fresh finish. Some citrus notes. I remember this beer as being sweeter initially, now it is smoother.

diabel (1603) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - JAN 17, 2005
Bottle Sparkling, amber body. Frothy-rocky, white head. Bad lace. Yeasts, alcohol and hints of hops in the aroma. Moderately bitter, light sweet initial flavour. Alcohol is present too. Bad choice.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 20, 2004
Amber color with some golden hues. Aroma of sitrus and spices. Nice alcohol and citrus flavors, the alcohol isn’t too dominating even if its 10.5%. Bitter finish. Interesting but not very good.

presario (4580) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - APR 21, 2004
Pale Yellow with an gentle white head. Whisps of cloud within. Light yeast and stong tropical fruit (pineapple) aromas. Flavour starts sweet and lemony with a yeasty but clean finish, a trace of the baking soday foaminess. A drinkable light Belgian except that it is hiding a 10.5% alcohol content.

Cloudy yellow/white color, short head. Aroma is sweet, bubblegum, malty and alcohol. Taste is malty, some yeast. Alcoholic palate.

skortila (4424) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - FEB 8, 2004
Very fruity (some berries) and sweet aroma. Cloudy, yellow coloured with a thin white head. Taste is malty, yeasty, sweet and fruity (same berries again). Alcohol is present, but quite well hidden compared to its percentage.

Light yellow in color. Very good and enjoyable beer. Complex palate. Warming character to it. Fruity aroma.
