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.

2009 Bottle pours cloudy gold with foamy white head. Aromas of bread, orange, clover, fruity esters, floral, pepper. Moderately bitter and sweet. Body is smooth with a hint of acidity. The fruity esters really distinguishes this from other beers of the same style. This is the apogee of a belgian triple. Not sure what it tastes like fresh, but they nailed it when this stuff is aged for a few years.

Pale blond with bright, white head. Aroma and flavour have sweet fruits like banana and peach. Quite like candied dried fruit. The high alcohol gives a balance of dryness.

De geur is enorm rijk, zeer lekker. Heel lichte kleur. De smaak is schitterend, trekt wat op orval.

Senka (1059) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 9, 2016
75cl / 2016 Pours golden, slightly hazy with thick white head. Strong malts in aroma and in the taste. Crispy, fizzy and a rough textured beer - I love when a brew is thick and carbonated. Feels like a blond on steroids. Finish is a bit off with some cardboard and iron, but I think this is due to rough transportation. I want to get blue one now.

mice (801) - FINLAND - AUG 8, 2016
Kirkas, hiivojen kanssa aavituksen samea punertavan kullankeltainen olut paksuhkolla valkoisella vaahdolla. Tuoksu hedelmäinen, karamellisen makea ja hieman aniksinen ja jopa lakritsaa havaittavissa. Todella houkutteleva kokonaisuus. Maku siirappinen ja karamellisen makea sekä maltainen, vahvasti belgihiivainen ja viljainen sekä hedelmäinen. Jälkimaultaan tahmaisen sokerinen ja hiivainen. Alkoholi tuntuu hieman läpi, mutta ei liian paljoa. Ihan toimiva belgi.

Yellow, light cloudy color with foam layer. Yeasty and alcoholic nose with a strong and dusty layer. Thick and strong body with a lot yeast and a very fine carbonation. Alcoholic and yeasty aftertaste.

Brown body, light brown head. Aroma has caramelized apple and fudge. Belgian yeast and spices. I just love the Anker yeast. Flavour has apples, yeast, caramel, noble hops. Just perfect balance.

SkillsFactory (549) - ITALY - JUN 19, 2016
Best before 21/04/2018, aperta il 19/06/2016. Dorata limpida, schiuma bianca poco persistente. Aroma di miele, lievito belga e polpa d'arancia, leggeri chiodi di garofano e coriandolo. Al palato miele, lievito belga, polpa d'arancia che permane sul finale mista a frumento e leggero erbaceo. Corpo medio-pieno, mediamente carbonata.
