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.

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.

750mL corked bottle 2013 vintage Hazy orange gold beer, holds a big thick white foam. Good nose to it! Apricot, apple & pear esters, pepper, and light toasty malt goodness. Has a creamy texture to it, somewhat rich with good carbonation. Lots of apricot esters on the body - properly ripe, almost dried, balanced by notes of pomme fruits, orange/mango juice & peppery spice, with a raw sugar & light biscuity malt sweetness to boot. Some warmth on the finish, low bitterness on a long dry finish. Tremendously good Tripel.

Really love their Blauw version, so been pumped to try this for a while. Pours a slightly hazy golden colour with a white head, good retention and lacing. Aromas of Belgian Ale yeast well-blended with the grassy hops giving hints of mints and lemon. A lot of the same for the taste, again, very well-balanced. Alcohol very well-hidden. A beautiful blond version of the Blauw !
