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.

bigguns22 (806) - Maryland, USA - OCT 27, 2012
Great looking beer brite yellow to golden in color. Small tight bubble head. Lite in the noise department but not the flavor department. Clove and coriander are the spices I taste the most. Very very bubbly and effervesant almost a little peppery.

From the LCBO, 'Jaargang 2017', closest description to my drink. Selected this one for my 500th, quite the personal milestone. Looking forward to more great beers.

Pours near clear golden with a moderate white head and good lacing. Nose is slightly tart fruits, coriander, a little alcohol and just a touch of european hops. Flavor pushes from dry to a burst of well accented Belgian malts and light spices, all of it very well balanced and tasty. Finish is sweet and sticky. Very good and drinkable.

ebone1988 (2232) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - JAN 1, 2018
2015 vintage. Bottle shared with koleminer20. Aroma is tropical fruit, floral, yeast, booze, caramel, bubblegum, nice. Appearance is amber, light tan head, unfiltered. Taste is floral, caramel, yeast, tropical fruit, some spice, ester, dry. Mouthfeel is medium body, light crisp carbonation, super floral sweet tropical fruit spice aftertaste. Overall, the blauw is better but this is still good.

BrewWhatIWant (323) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 25, 2017
Pours slightly hazy gold with a decent white head that leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma is malt and apples. Taste is slightly sweet and slightly bitter with a dry finish. There are notes of malt, vanilla, apples, and coriander. Light-medium bodied with plenty of carbonation. It’s a good beer with no hint of alcohol and delicate flavours.

4.2
carlom (116) - ITALY - DEC 3, 2017
Colore dorato, schiuma media poco persistente. Aromi di malto, lievito e miele. All'assaggio note di arancia, miele e spezie. Corpo medio, carattere dolce e finale lungo leggermente secco. Un birra molto beverina nonostante la gradazione alcolica, pulita ed equilibrata in cui le note zuccherine si fanno sentire.

3.6
Erzengel (9751) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 3, 2017
Tasting @ Koelschtrinker, 2016er. Sweetish sticky beginning. Intense malty, plums, red fruit. Malty sticky finish, very dry with bitter hints. Nice and deep, a bit sticky, alcoholic parts. Nice.

3.7
Tranquillity (2564) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 2, 2017
Bottled. The body is hazy yellow with a large white head. The aroma has some fruits and marmalade. The taste is great. Cognac with pear wine. Lovely.

3.5
Spab (4219) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 1, 2017
750 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a cloudy golden orange with moderate-sized white head. Aroma is lively tree fruit, sugars, spice and grains. Flavour is sweet pear, apricot, grains, clove and some citrus. Alcohol is dangerously subtle. Nice.

chris__hartley (458) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 28, 2017
It pours clear gold; the head is off white and foamy. The aroma has notes of: apricots, toffee, yeasty esters, raisins, and toast. The taste is medium sweet with a light bitterness. The palate is medium-light bodied with medium carbonation, and has a long finish. Overall, it's tasty, however forgettable.

2.7
Koelschtrinker (22074) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - NOV 28, 2017
Künstlicher, süß hefiger Antrunk. Apfelringe, süß-herb, trocken, unrund. Koriander, langer Nachhall. Okay. 10/8/9/8/9/9
