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.

Moravius (689) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 4, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2014 Flasche (Jahrgang 2012), gekauft in der Brauerei in Mechelen und 2 Jahre daheim gelagert. - Tiefes Goldgelb, schwach trüb; reichlich weißer Schaum. - In der Nase Hefe, Kandissüße, krautig-würzige Herbe mit kräftiger Anisnote, Orangenlikör. - Im Antrunk bitterschweres Orangeat und Kandis, vor allem aber eine aufdringliche Anis- bzw. Kräuternote (es wurden drei nicht spezifierte Kräuter verwendet). Sehr stark rezent, brauseartig. Nur schwach bitterer, immer noch schwer kandissüßer Abgang mit scharfen und fuseligen Noten. - Sehr bittersüßes, übertrieben stark gewürztes und erstaunlich eindimensionales Tripel. Nach der großartigen "blauen" Cuvee van de Keizer eine echte Enttäuschung ...

Mainuh_man (253) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 3, 2014
0.75L bottle. Pours clear golden with a rocky white head that dissipates quickly. Really potent, sweet aromas: vanilla, bubblegum, floral, anice. Flavor is mild sweet and complex. Starts with cereal grain, and then transitions to dough, licorice, ginger flavors. Long, mild, yeasty bitterness and warming alcohol in the linger. Light body with a slick mouthfeel and very active carbonation. Overall, really nice beer, with lots of aromatic character and complex flavor profile.

Percy0103 (234) - MEXICO - NOV 2, 2014
Bottle, 750. A clear golden beer with a big foamy white head. It has a floral aroma with citrics (especially lemon), yeast and alcohol. Taste is bitter with medium to strong carbonation and some astringency. Sweet aftertaste that reminds somewhat of peach. There is some overly sweet character at the end, but overall a good beer.

Flaske 75 cl, smagt hos Borup, for det første ligge man mærke til den super lækre aroma af forskellige frugt nuancer, udover det har den en dejlig konsistens, smagen er blandet, den smager rigtig godt, men er samtidig også rimelig sprittet.
