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.

This is a really nice one, reminds me of a Tripel, 750 ml. bottle, 2013 vintage. Pour is hazy gold with a medium, dense white head that leaves thick lacing. Aroma of pear, apricot, herbs, and honey. Balanced flavor, on the dry side, earthy hops, fruity, light bitterness, refreshing despite high alcohol. Medium to full body, creamy texture, lively carbonation, balanced finish. I like this one a lot better than the blue version, which is too sweet and syrupy. "Served with pride, it is drunken with respect."

Bottle from 2014. Drunken pears! Pours a bright, golden copper colour with a steady carbonation and a thin but dense off white head. Tons of alcohol legs on the glass. The nose is estery and floral with tons of pear and apple fruit notes, sugary malt notes, light lemon zest and a richly complex nose overall. Heavy body, tons of fruit and ester notes, mild earthy notes, white raisins, no hop bitterness. Rich and complex with a warm slightly dry finish.

2015. Monster blond that sneaks up on you. Getting big apple and pear flavours that linger on the palate.

Robe blonde, reflets dorés. Nez superbe qui évoque une triple avec un nez qui explose de fruits mûrs, sur un fond de malt, de fleurs, de caramel et de houblon. Bouche tout en fruit, en ampleur, un équilibre superbe et une longue finale fruitée. Un très grande bière de plaisir
