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.

750ml bottle; monster white head with a tint of cream; slight hop and fruit aroma; big alcohol taste in the back; made me feel as if I was drinking liqueur; got a little better as the temperature increased; another slow drinking beer for me. (#11)

MoDog (927) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - MAR 3, 2009
Poured from a 750ml caged and corked bottle (2008 vintage) and served in a tulip. This beer poured a pale straw yellow with a light cloudiness and a two-finger thick head of off-white foam that slowly settled. A small amount of slippery lacing was left around the glass. The aroma included a whiff of fresh grassy hops, spicy yeast, light sugar, and floury dry bread. The hops were not as prominent in the flavor. Just a light grassiness. The flavor was moderately sweet with a fair amount of sugar and a lingering herbal sweetness. Also a bit yeasty and bready along with some light pear notes. The mouthfeel was medium to full-bodied and had a moderate amount of lively carbonation. It starts off with a nice aroma, but the sweetness starts to become mildly annoying. Not really my thing.

750 mL bottle, 2008. Pours golden with a gigantic off-white head with some of the most solid lacing I’ve ever seen. The aroma has a nice orange-blossom note at the fore, with some honeyish malt and some floral hops. The flavor is very orangey with lots of sweet malts behind it. There are lots of floral nuances throughout, and a warm, yeasty finish. The alcohol is evident, but not intrusive. Not bad.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 10, 2009
On tap at the Brick Store. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a huge pillowy white head that stays on as a cap for ages and leaves very good lacing. Light sweet aroma with light fruits and hints of spices on top. There is plenty of Belgian yeast and bubble gum sweetness as well with a bit of citrus. The taste is slightly sweeter than the aroma with lots of light sweetness featuring apples and pears. The Belgian yeast forms a solid backbone with a slightly dry finish with some citrus hops. The moutfeel is fairly light with tons of carbonation and lots of sticky sweetness throughout. This isn’t the biggest or most complex Belgian pale but it’s extremely drinkable. Recommended.
