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.

Imported a case of this for the Toronto gang. A stong blond that grows on me. 2008 edition. Generous white head on golden that generates rising carbonation bubbles, heavy lace. A story of yeast. Interesting yeast, even somehwat funky and certainly creamy as the glass is downed.

Okay, so I bought this thinking it was the other one. Honestly I’m a touch disappointed about that, since I really like the other brew. But, this stuff is nice as well. I don’t think I like it quite as much. It’s definitely blond, where the other Keizer is not. First sip is sharp and biting. Highly carbonated. Good flavor. I’m trying not be be harsh here, and judge it on it’s own merits. I just really wanted a darker Belgian beer tonight...

3fourths (9296) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 23, 2009
Draft @ Granville Moore’s. Mostly clear lemon yellow. Beautifully soft white head. Moderately boozy nose, triple-like soap/herb esters and a high amount of sugar. Syrupy, oily, full-bodied, bite of alcohol and twinge of sugar candy consume this one. Very faint dry turn in the finish, more of an alcohol and brash body bite. Enjoyable but unremarkable. Belgian Strong rating #200.

Bottle. Poured a nice golden body with nice head. Aroma is light fruit, clove and honey. Flavor has a nice sweet honey, clove and some tropical fruit. Soft despite the high alcohol percentage.

LadySusan (766) - Ste-Therese, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 3, 2009
450ml. bottle at Brouhaha. The color is a dark brown with a thin beige head. The aroma is heavy of malt and alcohol. The taste also of malt and molasse with seet fruits. When they say Belgium Strong they are not wrong.

blankboy (7482) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 23, 2009
Bottle (750ml) shared with HogTownHarry, garthicus, GregClow & tupalev -- c/o HogTownHarry. Pours a hazy bubbly gold with an average size fizzy white head. Aroma of yeast, banana, biscuity malt and some floral notes. Flavour: Whoa, the alcohol sure takes you by surprise -- wow! It’s sweet, a bit syrupy along with biscuity malt. Medium bodied, quite carbonated. Way too boozy, making this just O.K.

nuplastikk (5961) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 20, 2009
Draft at Birreria Paradiso. Creamy orange yeasty appearance. Thick, creamy, yeasty taste, with a touch of bitterness. Amber candi-sugar notes as well. More bitterness that your typical big Belgian ale. Very well done.

DietPepsican (1586) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - JUN 12, 2009
Pours gold with a large white head. Aroma is sweet and you get hit with the belgian yeast right up front. It also has some honey, clove, and just a bit of foot. Flavor is loaded with green apple, heavy yeast, lemons, lime rind, biscuity malts and just a bit of floral spiciness. Finishes with a nice little boozy finish, but doesn’t distract.

Bottle shared with Hogtown Harry, Garthicus, Blankboy, and GregClow, courtesy of Harry. Medium yellow, small white head. Strong yeast and malt aroma. Strong taste - malty, sweet, alcohol. Too much, too strong, too syrupy - did not really work for me at all.
