If we had our way, Brouwerij Het Anker’s 10% ABV masterpiece Cuvee van de Keizer Rood would be the national beer of Belgium.
Call us bold, but any Belgian fan needs this beer’s bigger-than-life candied fruits, spicy aromas, and a decadent booziness. Keizer Rood honors Belgian brewing traditions with flavors fit for a king - no shocker considering this beast was named in honor of the flippin’ Emperor.
Flowing with a flush of tasty Belgian hallmarks, Keiser Rood is royal craft elegance personified through every sip. Flavors of orange peels and caramelized crushed pineapples coated in brown sugar sauce enrapture the tongue, reminding you of a champagne on steroids. A secret trio of herbs stimulate with hints of cracked coriander and peppercorns that twirl amongst Belgian trademark banana notes. Finishing with a flare of boozy heat tempered with sweetness, this imperial brew is meant for moderation - but if you’re drinking like a king, your will is your command.
We may not have the power to decree this Belgian the nation’s official beer, but anyone who longs for classics from St. Bernardus or Westmalle will find it deserves a place among these giants. Perfect for cellaring, Cuvee van de Keizer Rood will blossom with deeper fruit character and cognac-like boozy smoothness for years to come.
