COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

In bottle; 2010 version. This was actually quite good. A little spicy, with some hoppiness yet without the usual Belgian yeasty flair ... very easy drinking for 10%. Would definitely buy again

Alpha10 (371) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 20, 2015
2015/01/20 - Vintage 2011. Pours a hazy orange/straw colour with a thin, foamy, white head that quickly reduces to a surface film. No lacing. Smells amazing. Aroma is Belgian yeast, dough, strong honey and fruity esters (peach, apricot & banana). Taste is similar to nose; lots of honey and fruits, yeast, bready notes and mild alcohol. Mouthfeel is medium, with average carbonation and a drying, mildly warming finish. I really, really enjoyed this beer. One of the best smelling beers I have ever tried. 750ml bottle, BBE 02/08/15, 2012 vintage. Pours a light yellow, somewhat hazy, large white head. Aroma is very fruity. Taste is pretty stingy with ethanol. But the ethanol is pretty strong. Dries up the finish. Full with medium carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle courtesy of Deanso. Poured a hazy straw colour with a frothy white head. The aroma is big yeast, rich citrus, sugar coated almonds, marzipan. The flavour is moderate to strong sweet with a sweet malt, boozy alcohol palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

Sigmund (5343) - Tau, NORWAY - DEC 28, 2014
750 ml corked & caged bottle, vintage 2012, from Vinmonopolet. ABV is 10%. Golden colour, huge white head. Sweetish and sugary aroma, with notes of ripe yellow fruits (esp. plums), flowers, white kandij sugar syrup and malts. Medium sweet flavour with the same elements as in the aroma, also mild spicy notes. Pleasant enough to drink.

Erasmus_ro (1525) - Alabama, USA - DEC 23, 2014
750ml bottle, BBE 02/08/15, 2012 vintage. Pours a light yellow, somewhat hazy, large white head. Aroma is very fruity. Banana, apricot, peach, a gamut of fruit - of the Belgian beer variety, not the American hops style citrus or grapefruit. Taste is pretty stingy with ethanol. The fruitiness is there, along with some pale malts and light smoke. But the ethanol is pretty strong. Dries up the finish. Full with medium carbonation.

mutz (662) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 19, 2014
75 cl fles. Lichtgoudgele kleur, crêmige kraag die lang blijft. Ruikt .... Beetje zoet, beetje zuur, maar niet erg nadrukkelijk. Smaakt zoetig maar ook wrang, en dat is niet zo mijn ding dat wrange. Wat fruitigs is er ook nog, wat abrikoos in de nasmaak. Ik vind ’m niet zo goed , vlak en saai
