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.

Ughsmash (7387) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 23, 2009
750mL bottle, 2008 bottling. Poured healthy golden with an eggshell head on top.. looked nice. The aroma was strong with pale and caramel malts leading.. spicy peppery esters joined an intricate display of floral notes around.. singed the nostrils a bit. The flavor opened with spicy pepper and floral notes.. sweet middle of aged pale malts and medium-skinned fruits.. finished warm with more spices and great balance. Heavier-bodied with lots of carbonation on the palate.. spicy and engaging.. very good brew!
