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.

750 ml. 2008 bottle. Hazy gold body. Frothy white head, mostly lasting. Soapy, floral aroma with notes of toasted grain, cobwebs, banana and pineapple. The flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly bitter and lightly acidic. It finishes lightly sweet, moderately bitter and moderately acidic. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Peppery alcoholic note in the finish. The strong floral aroma and taste is too dominant in an otherwise solid golden strong ale. You have to dig a little deeper to get to the nice fruity esters.

2008 - Comes out with almost no head. It has a full taste with gentle creamy hop almost. Fills the mouth also after the sip. Easy to drink but best enjoyed slowly.

screwball (1099) - Motala, SWEDEN - DEC 20, 2009
750ml bottle. Clear golden body. Complex and interesting brew. Spicy and fresh aroma. Also banana, hops and flowers. Flavor is warming from the high alcohol concentration. Also dough, yeast, hay, hops, spices and sweets. Good one but I like the blue better.

Bricks (1089) - Delaware, USA - DEC 13, 2009
2008 - A little bit of a let down from the Blue, which was incredible. This is reminiscent of a Bernardus Abt 12.. although not quite that high in quality. A rich, creamy, blonde ale.

Defreni (3098) - Husum, DENMARK - DEC 11, 2009
Flaske: Lys næsten trippel i sit udseende. Duft af gær og frugt. Dejlig frisk i sin smag, gør at den igen minder om en trippel i sit udtryk. Dejlig belgisk øl hvor sødmen og gæren kombineret giver et balanceret udtryk Rigtig god øl.

Gypsy19 (726) - California, USA - DEC 8, 2009
750ml from Total Wine & More, Roseville. Pours a mostly clear orange, fizzy within, with a large egg-white head. Aroma is mostly hoppy, with some lighter fruits coming around sparingly. Flavor is nice: Quite fruity and spicy, with a sharp funky bitterness at the end. Kind of an astringent bite, but it works. Lighter feel, good spritz element on the tongue. Not too memorable, but very likeable. Overall, very good.

armando629 (2456) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 25, 2009
0, 75 l bottle, vintage 2009.
Hazy golden beer with a huge and stable, foamy white head what diminishes very slowly, leaves a nice lace on the glass and never disappears. Rich aroma of caramel and honey, spicy character with coriander, liqueric malt. Oily texture, a density like honey, very thick body with caramel, again the liqueric malt and the spicy character of coriander, some vanilla. Fine alcoholic-spicy aftertaste with a mild hop in the aftertaste. Very good and balanced brew.
