look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Blind-tasted except for the beer's name and brewery/country, zero reviews below read (yet!)…
L- Chestnut reddish-brown, clear, pours with a 2Cm pillowy off-white head. ps 20mins later, holds very well.
S- Immediately engaging, classic vibrant Belgian (monastic) hop notes.
T- ... which follows directly into the taste. Aromatic timber, hints of leather and spice. Vibrant flavour, even a suggestion of sherbert like CO2 bubbling up in the mouth (this is a ref to the CO2 only, not a suggestion re: sherberty sweetness, at all!). This is of the style of trad Belgian monastic... what, Tripel, I'm guessing?
F- There's a lot going on but it's going down really easily. Probably a sign of a good beer. One for slow-sipping, too good to rush anyway.
O- Wow lovely, an unexpectedly good surprise this one. Funny how sometimes the most impressive beers have no need for clever/loud/eye-catching packaging. This bottle is certainly understated, not quite to the eponymous Westvleteren's Catholic minimalism but off that way in it's elegant simplicity.
Wow, *major* Belgian estery notes going on here. Complete with reminders of the taste of Pear Drop sweets. All in all a lovely beer!
Review/scoring all done, now the reveal, I get to read the bottle lables to see what I missed! Ok 7.5% Amber i/o Tripel. 'Bottle re-fermented'.
330ml bottle BB: 31/08/2022 £2.74 - Good value for a beer of this style/stature. Bought from BeersOfEurope, King's Lynn/UK as part of a large pick-your own consignment to London.

Bottle at an Italian joint in Antwerp. Pours amber colored, slightly hazy, with a big frothy white head on too. Aroma of some fruit, spice, little yeast funk. Flavor follows with sweet amber ale notes--light cherries, fig, bit of bready malt--and is supplemented by a subtle Belgian yeast and spice note. Very easy drinking brew, clean finish, with medium plus carbonation. Overall I found this to be a perfectly pleasant everyday beer. Not bad.

330ml bottle, poured into La Chouffe tulip.

A: Dark amber, medium tanned head, good retention, some lacing. S: Phenols, citrus.

T: Molasses, yeast, esters, citrus, suppressed the boozy burn.

M: Crisp, light, smooth, moderate carbonation.

O: Balanced, solid, hard to classify, not strong enough to be a tripel, also very dark in colour. I would say it's more of a strong belgian pale ale.

The Ramée Amber wears a dark ocher, crystalline, with orange tones, in which we see a medium carbonation. Its foam is white and creamy, stable duration. The aroma is very floral and fruity, with presence of malt and slightly licorice. It is also found that touch alcohol in perspective, presaging a powerful shot.

The drink is lighter than expected, with a flavor that hints at citrus and fruity notes, based maltose and alcohol. The final, herbal and spicy leaves the mouth tingling with a bitter aftertaste. Fully balanced, smooth beer.

tried this on a shopping day, the only beer the place had I didn't know of, so I was in for something new I thought

not impressed by this one, especially not the taste. Very weak, light body, not much more to say, won't try this one again. Far better beers in Belgium.

should have taken a regular Orval instead

In the olfactory flavors, with wonderful malting with a touch of sweet alcohol. Fort sparkling, his mouth is both spicy and pungent with tannins of old wood. Quite warm in the body, it gives the impression of an old beer to taste very bitter, especially in the finish. Force almost a beer style threefold, much less refreshing than her sisters.

Pours a semi clear amber color.
Smell has a hint of pears and yeast.
Taste is pear like up front then changes to a spicy sweetness that has a fruity finish.
You can feel the alcohol settle, but not in a bad way very nice.

This is a great beer. I'm glad I decided to pick it up I almost past it up.

A clear (but not crystal) amber mahogany beer with a good rising bleached khaki head. It washes up the edges of the glass like an ocean wave but quickly fades back into the liquid.

Smell is on the weak side. Slightly malty and... hmmmm, that's all I've got so far. I'll let it warm some more and see if anything else shows up.

Taste is on the cidery side of things. There is a baked apple taste and a lightly grain finish. Nothing great to the taste, just middle of the road.

Not bad but also not really great. This is a weak Belgian in my book. It looks great but doesn't finish strong.

Best before oct 07. Beer poors out with nice head and beautifull and clear amber/copperbrown beercolor. Nice nose of caramellic sugar/malt and nice asterpalete with it giving banana& sweet apple. Taste is also quiet good being caramellic malty and having a good balance between sweet& bitterness! Missing a litle body and somehow gave me a litle soapy taste with it. No bad brew though IMO and nice moutfeel with good carbonisation( but could be more also). Easy drinkable but not one to remember cause of greatness.

Cherry-wood red, full and deep, brownish head, average in compactness and persistence.
The smell is caramel, cane sugar, and a hint of liquorice in background. Maybe some chickory?
In the taste the caramel sweetness prevails, and after a while it become boring. Touches of ripe fruit (peach) and tropical fruits.
In the aftertaste the ripe fruit sweetness again. Then caramel and, if you search very carefully, some hints of liquorice.
Medium-light in body.
