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.

porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - MAR 28, 2009
(750 ml bottle (2008) from 1828 Vintage House, cellared for 7 mos. after purchase) Bitter, hot and fruity...Pours hazyish gold-amber with two fingers of pillowy white head that recede slowly to about 1/8" and stay. Aroma is sweetish and fruity, a bit of candy along with light yeast. Mouthfeel is fairly smooth, medium-full, perhaps very lightly sticky. Big, weepy rings of lacing. Flavor is initially quite sweet and hot. Tastes of cherry-like fruitiness overlain by a fairly hefty bitter bite. As it warms there is a soft chocolate note that develops along with a bit of pepper or spice in the finish. Hotness actually seems to tone down as it warms/gets deeper into bottle. Lingering bitter aftertaste. Actually quite a nice Belgian - it doesn’t disappoint.

Pilsner malty aroma, thick doughy head, wildly effervescent in the glass. initially sweet, stinging carbonic bite, dry wheat and a dry finish.

grandgenie (259) - val-des-monts, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 23, 2009
Importation avec bieropholie et dégusté avec viak,michaud et Glandine dans un verre de chimay. Apparence jaune ambré avec une mousse collante. Arômes fruité, de levure, de fruits des champs, raisin vert, coriande, houblon, agrumes et une touche de cidre de glace. Un goût fruité, sucre de canne, gingembre, orange, ananas. Un ressemblance avec un vin blanc mousseux de pomme et de poire. Une bière tous simplement géniale qui est ronde en bouche et d’un équilibre hors du commun. Une bière de rois me procurant une plénitude et un CARPE DIEM de plaisir...

DrDavid (957) - Johnson, Vermont, USA - MAR 22, 2009
Bottle. Big malty aroma, sweet and fruity. Bright golden body, huge white head. Flavor is too sweet, and not especially complex. Good, but not nearly as impressive as the Blue.

Boutip (6312) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 14, 2009
Bottle: Poured a bright yellow color ale with a nice big pure white foamy head with great retention and some good lacing. Aroma of apricot and peach ester is just incredible and must admit that not many brewery can get this much from their yeast. Taste is very smooth with no signs of alcohol and fruity esters are very well balanced with some sweet Belgian malt. Light floral hops are also noticeable. Body is quite full with great carbonation and no alcohol was discernable. Another winner from a top Belgian brewery that I have some a tendency to forget about.

ajm (1072) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 12, 2009
Tap at Lucky Baldwin’s. The worst offering I have had from Het Anker. Nose is potent and hot, very like vodka. The flavor is spicy Belgian hops and the darkest green-leafy vegetable concentrate you can imagine. Just not very likable - very like a fugue.

thehoff (598) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 11, 2009
PPWD Show. Not as nice as the blue stripe so doesn’t stand out as well in my mind. I do remember it was quite drinkable but will have to drink it again to really remember and note it’s hightlights.

anders37 (26137) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 9, 2009
Draft @ Toronado, SF. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a longlasting white head. Has a malty spicy yeasty aroma with some hints of dark fruits. Sweetish malty spicy yeasty flavor with hints of dark fruit. Has a warming malty spicy yeasty finish.

hallinghansen (3124) - Odense SV, DENMARK - MAR 7, 2009
2008 bottle. Clear golden body, with a large white head. Aroma is fruit and alcohol. Flavor is fruit, candy sugar, alcohol and spices.

eyesolus (64) - Mill Creek, Washington, USA - MAR 5, 2009
750ml bottle; monster white head with a tint of cream; slight hop and fruit aroma; big alcohol taste in the back; made me feel as if I was drinking liqueur; got a little better as the temperature increased; another slow drinking beer for me. (#11)
