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.

The Ale is actually Abtei Himmerod Abteibier. For some reason US distribution name is changed. This batch was purhased in Germany. Golden Amber, sweet carmel and candi sugar smell, with a slight hint of hop bitterness. A sweet caramel taste and yeasty spicyness (wheat?) follow the light alchohol heat. Watch the the pour, because they are bottle conditioned and have yeast sediment on the bottom of the bottle. A nice bedtime snack or for sitting outside at night.

Pours a cloudy caramel colour with huge head. Pleasant fruity and "oaky" aroma. Slight initial bitter taste, sweetening as you drink it. Nicely done.

Bierkrug (2133) - - APR 12, 2011
330 ml bottle in Germany. Dark amber color with a huge white foamy head. Powerful malty aroma in which alcohol is noticeable. The taste is sweet before anything, very fruity, subtle tartness, with a sweet like end. I found it robust for sure, but well balanced and not as agressive as others of the type can be. Overall very tasty with a lot of character. My rating may be different with the German version direct from the Abtei in Germany

BeerFanDan17 (998) - Brunswick, Maine, USA - DEC 6, 2008
A very smooth and tasty amber ale--almost blonde in color and texture. Pours light golden and is cloudy with a somewhat creamy head. Very smooth with light fruity flavors of apricot and hints of banana.

boto (1854) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - AUG 3, 2007
11.2 oz. bottle: I had this one while visiting Eulogy in Philly. This one poured a hazy amber color with a small off white head. It left some lacing. There is some alcohol to the nose, as well as some spiciness, apples and a bit of the caramel malt. There was some effervescence on the tongue. The taste is somewhat spicy, with the alcohol mostly hidden. Medium maltiness with some residual sweetness. Decent.

FishManLA (337) - Abita Springs, Louisiana, USA - DEC 7, 2008
Cloudy bronze/amber color with a thick foamy white head that lasts forever and leaves thick frothy lacing. Fruity nose of plum and raisins with subtle alcohol notes. Taste of plums, raisins and wood, with the alcohol clearly obvious, but it a good way, reminiscent of brandy. A warming brandy-like effect as it goes down and a sweet brandy like finish.
