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.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - NOV 23, 2003
Clear light yellow beer with a wisp of yeast. Spicey fruity aroma. Full complex palate. Malty and warming. Very good beer. Thanks to Lubiere.

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - NOV 11, 2003
Another Belgian drunkard beer. Very alcoholic and violent. Drink a sixpack fast and you'll get drunk.

CapFlu (4469) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 27, 2003
(33cl bottle) Pours a massive, rocky, almond head and highly active, cloudy, pale yellow body. Nose of spiced citrus and alcohol. Initial spike of citrus leans into a smooth warming of oily malt. Very nice. Above average.

Rastacouere (6122) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 31, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2003 Nice golden blonde robe with shy white head. Powerful malty aroma in which alcohol is noticeable. The taste is sweet before anything, very fruity, subtle tartness, with a bitter end. I found it robust for sure, but well balanced and not as agressive as others propose. Overall very tasty with a lot of character.

Mads Langtved (2245) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - AUG 27, 2003
A violent beer. Like being beaten up by some punkers in a dark night in November 1984. Pretty alcoholic and strong!

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUL 15, 2003
Beer gushes out of the bottle. Huge head. Only slight juniper aroma, the malt dominates.mSweet, malty flavor with juniper berries and genever, slightly artificial. This beer is much more balanced as the Rader Blonde, although the alcohol dominates.

TheBeerGod (5174) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAY 29, 2003
Had this at Le Bier Circus on 5-13-03. Nice golden blonde. Strong alcohol aroma along with malt. Taste expands on that with a stronger malt, alcohol, and slightly whisky-ish presence. Maybe peach as well. Supposedly this has gin added to it at some point and there is that dryness from gin in this beer, especially during the finish. Has a nice whitish head and decent carbonation.

Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - DEC 5, 2002
UPDATED: APR 1, 2004 Cloudy light amber coloured beer. Slightly sweet and a tiny bit sour aroma. A friend of mine said she could smell the 'jenever' which destillate is supposed to be added to the beer. I could not really say I did but it had an interesting aroma. The taste was refreshing, a bit sweet, slightly sour and a bit thick. The alcohol is obvious but not disturbing. It is a good beer.

SilkTork (5166) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2002
Dull muddy apple pie with cloves. Left over alcohol. I’m sure the puss faced brewer’s boy did more than spit in this concotion. Maybe P-tor44 spat this out after drinking his Stag.

Ernest (6148) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 21, 2002
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium yellow, dense tiny and small particles, bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately yeasty (cobwebs, earth), moderately malty (cookie), lightly hoppy (flowers, herbs), with notes of alcohol, pear, honey, and clove. Flavor is heavily sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, creamy and syrupy texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic. It’s quite sweet, and the alcohol is a bit too striking, but it’s actually quite pleasant for such a strong beer. Improves as it warms.
