To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the "Cuvée van de Keizer Blauw", the brewery launched a blond-version : Cuvée van de Keizer Rood. This beer is similar to the previous Gouden Carolus Easter Beer. Blond rich beer that is brewed each year during the easter period. It contains several types of malt and during brewing 3 herbs are added. It's golden blond colour, it's high alcohol concentration of 10 %, it's full and balanced taste make this beer into a source of vitality and strength which will appeal to the demanding beer taster. For ideal tasting pour out gently in one pull to a temperature round 7-8° C. Served with pride it is drunken with respect. This pleasant golden blond beer is chosen for he who loves a richer, somewhat spicy and refreshing beer.

Disclaimer: This is a blond version of the Cuvée Van de Keizer, introduced in 2008. The label has a red diagonal line.

VDuquerroux (1200) - Airvault, FRANCE - APR 11, 2016
Bottle, 75cL. @Naintré with my dad. A yellow-brown opaque hazy beer with a big foamy white head ; good retention and lacing. Fruits (pear, light peach), flower, herb, biscuit, alcohol. Medium to heavy sweet, round, warming heavy ; bitter note. Full body, silky texture, average carbonation, warming sugary fruity finish. Overall, ok fruity sweet warming belgian ale ; too sugary and "heavy".

A great tripel, but lacks an acid note. Overall a great beer, but I got my preferences for less sweet-round beers.

Mooi goudblond licht troebel bier met romige witte schuimkraag. Superlekkere diepere romige smaak. Peertjes, calvados, likeurachtige smaak. Hele lange, fruitige, licht alcoholische, afdronk. Topklasse !!!

750 ml bottle. 2012 vintage. Cloudy orangey golden color with a small white head. Amazing aroma of green apples, caramel, yeast and toffee. Heavenly aroma. Do I wanna ruin this by tasting this? The flavor is yeast, bitterness, caramel, toffee, sweetness and malt. This really is yummy. More please. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tmoreau (3628) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JAN 1, 2016
Shared corked & caged, 750 ml. bottle poured to snifters, showing a hazed, orangey gold color, with a presentable, fairly lasting head of soft white foam, and good cling to the ribbons & spots of lacing. The nose was light plantain, some spicy phenols, light fruit as a mixture of pit fruit & citrus, and candy/syrupy sweetness. The taste continued the light fruitiness and amped sweetness, with lively carbonation, moderate bitterness, and a steady but non-overpowering warmth, in a somewhat medium body. A fairly decent, Golden Strong Ale, but would have preferred some dryness, and a little less sweetness.
