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.

Shaney (2428) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - OCT 21, 2013
Gekauft habe ich die Flasche im Laden der Zisterzienserabtei Himmerod in einer 75cl Buddel mit der Bezeichnung "Abtei Himmerod Abteibier", gebraut in der belgischen Zisterzienserabtei Val Dieu; MHD 16.04.2015! Zum Bier selbst: Hellbraun mit orangenem Schimmer, ziemlich trüb mit üppiger Schaumbildung. Ein paar Hefeschwebeteilchen sind auch dabei. Hefig-säuerliches Aroma nach Hefeteig und fruchtig nach Waldbeeren; leichte Alkoholnote. Süß-hefiger Antrunk, vollmundig und spritzig zugleich, geradezu sektähnlich. Die nussige Würze des Roggen macht sich angenehm bemerkbar. Der bitter-süße Geschmack geht über in einen herben, leicht schnapsigen Nachgeschmack, der durchaus an einen Genever erinnert. Insgesamt noch ziemlich wuchtig und unrund, aber sehr spannend im Geschmacksverlauf. Meine 2. Flasche darf ruhig noch bis Ende 2014 im Keller nachreifen.

Silvan7 (716) - Samarate, ITALY - APR 3, 2013
Daught @ delirium cafè , Brussels. Niente di speciale. l’alcool è trppo nascosto dalla temperatura di servizio gelida, così come i profumi che vengono acquietati. Magari in bottiglia potrebbe migliorare....

darkseduction (603) - Zweibrücken, GERMANY - MAR 2, 2013
Stubbi-Flasche 33cl. Im Geruch und Antrunk sofort eine alkoholische Dominanz, die sich stark über alle Geschmacksnerven legt. Dunkle Malze im Hintergrund. Die Hefe rundet den insgesamt harmonischen Eindruck gut ab. Insgesamt aber nicht die Klasse eines Westvleteren.

brokensail (11089) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 2, 2012
Pours a lightly hazed amber color with a white head. There’s a mild gin/genever aroma to it, but definitely an herbaceous quality overall. Sweet banana and toasted bread and some hints of yeast round out the nose. Lots of toasted bread flavor to the beer with a strong herbal quality from the gin. A touch of banana, some apple, and light fruit qualities on the finish.

sebletitje (6819) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 26, 2012
Draft @ Délirium. Wondering if this is not a tuned up Val Dieu Grand Cru with the added Jenever from Radebacher distillery. Ambrée claire, col épais blanc. Arôme malté sur ce profile de baies de genièvre avec en retrait un malt léger et une pointe de levure/sucre brun. Le tout garde un profile très belge avec ajout de cask restant subtile. Palais est réchauffant avec 10.5% qui ne dénaturent pas trop la bière. Le tout garde un profile profond de barrique et de baies de genièvre. Malté pâle/caramel sur un côté très belge dans la base de la bière, le tout garde un profile fruité rappelant la pomme cara qui est agrémenté des baies et un palais bien pétillant.

Svesse (6174) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - AUG 11, 2012
(Draught at Delirium Café, Brussels, 16 July 2012) Amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Fruity, malty nose with dried fruit, candy sugar, dried apricots and orange peel. Malty, fruity taste with notes of orange peel, candy sugar and a spicy bitterness in a finish with a certain alcohol bite. Almost full body, quite sweet. Hardly well balanced, but quite tasty and nice.

Benzai (8545) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - APR 29, 2012
33cl bottle @ home. Clear copper color, small white head that becomes a small lacing. Smell malts, toast, caramel, hint of sweetness, hint of bitter. Taste malts, caramel, lightly bitter, lightly alcohol, light hint of black currant and grapes. Pretty nice. Medium to full carbonation, medium body.
