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.

Pours hazy medium yellow with largish frothy white head. Aroma is cereal, coriander, some anis, Belgian yeast, note of green apple, sugar, honey. Medium sweet, medium bitter, long bitter aftertaste with some alcohol. Body is full, palate is almost creamy, carbonation is rather high.

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

rosenbergh (10640) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 8, 2016
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 (3755) - 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.

TimE (5091) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 29, 2015
Cloudy golden color. Pears, peaches, bready, fruity nose. This is a 2009 version but super smooth body, alcohol so well hidden, body is super well integrated. Malt with some fruity and bready notes. This beer has peaked and it’s brilliant.

Bottle from the real ale store, Newark. Hazy gold colour with a white head. Yeasty, and deep rich fruit aroma. Taste citrus orAnge. lemon and slight tropical fruit. With a balanced bitter sweet and slight sour taste. This beer has everything and so complex. Wow.

jefcon (1656) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - DEC 20, 2015
Light, airy aromas. Some spice, some light fruit, and light caramel. Much richer on the palate, bright and peppery with a long finish and a very good pairing with rich food.
