Gouden Carolus Cuvée Van de Keizer Blauw by the Het Anker Brewery is a top-fermented beer, brewed once a year on the 24th February to celebrate the birthday of Emperor Charles V.
This exceptional beer can easily be laid down to age in a cool, dark, dry place for up to ten years, just like a fine wine.
Pouring deep chestnut brown with a fine tan head, this Belgian beer breathes rich candied fruit, malt, yeast, caramel, chocolate and alcohol notes.
On the tongue, you’ll find a host of flavours, including chocolate, caramel, grape, dried fruit, spices, and liqueur, in a complex ensemble that demonstrates its class through a perfect balance.
The satin texture and light carbonation give a malty, alcohol finish, while the density serves to link the warming character of wine with the freshness of beer to make this a rare beer of exception.
