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.

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

Senka (1076) - 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 (868) - 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.

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.

GoufCustom (1770) - HONG KONG - APR 16, 2016


750 ml cork bottle ‘2014 vintage’ opened with loud ‘pop’ bought at Craftissimo in Tsim Sha Tsui East.

Looks: Cloudy hazy orange honey colour with a ring of yeast sediments; Two and a half finger head and crumpety white foam which last for 3 minutes; Excellent sticky lacing with active carbonation.

Aroma: Very fragrant and sweet malt, with banana, pears, light apples, strong candied fruits, vanilla, alcohol, sugar, bubblegum, bread and strong Bel yeast.

Taste: Mid to strong sweet malt, with caramel, cherries, red fruits, alcohol, medium liquorices, light metallic, sugar, spices, white bread, strong Bel yeast, strong lemon, strong herbs, medium bitter hops and grass.

Body: Close to full body. Creamy and very slick palate.

Mouth Feel: Solid maltyness in thick background, very smooth and creamy. Pretty good red fruitness and some caramel, with strong booze in driving seat. Sweetness is strong but not cloying, with fairly strong spices and strong herbal lemon to round. Simple and nice!

Booze: the 10% is very well presented and managed, never domineering at any point with only slightly warming hint. Liquorices is notable but not overwhelming like most BSAs. Excellent!

Hoppiness: Absent in aroma. Spices, strong lemon, strong herbs and grass in taste; Bitterness combines with liquorices has strong herbal influence for a lasting, mid-to-high astringent sweet malty finish.

After Taste: Fairly dry. Creamy, spicy and boozy to mouth.

Comments: This one has strong malt, very creamy with excellent fruity aroma, strong but neat sweetness, well-hidden booze, and a very herbal citrusy finish. Like the rest of Gouden Carolus series, this one is straight forward strong Blond and doesn’t disappoint. A beauty!
