COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Gouden Carolus Cuvée van de Keizer Rood is a strong blond beer that was launched in 2008 on the occasion of "10 years Gouden Carolus Cuvée van de Keizer Blauw". However, it contains more types of malt and 3 different kinds of herbs are added during the brewing process. Its bright golden color, high alcohol percentage and full and well-balanced taste make this ale a genuine source of vitality and power which will please even the most critical connoisseur. For ideal savoring, gently pour out in one fluent movement, at a temperature of 7-8° C (45-46°F). Proudly poured it is savored with respect. Those who like a refreshing, heavy and somewhat spicy beer, choose this blonde ale.

commonmac (1223) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 27, 2017
Large bottle picked up at Elevated. 2013 variety. Consumed with commonshawn during Belgium/Germany trip planning. Beautiful golden orange color with a half finger eggshell white head. Nice haze. Aroma is boozy, slightly spicy, and a darker fruit quality. Taste has sweet malty notes, mild orange characteristics, a pleasant spiciness/sharpness reminiscent of a tripel but with a much bigger alcohol punch. Elements of a tart, overly ripe apple or pear present. Very impressed by this one. Blauw still tops Rood but it’s closer than you might think. Highly recommend purchasing a bottle as soon as you can.
