Average ... a touch sweet and unbalanced. kraddel (8719) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JUL 10, 2017
Sampled at LIBF 2017. Thnx for sharing, everyone ! Pours rather clear blonde, small white head. Smell is not as intense as the non-imperials, which is quite weird. Taste is sharp, bit bitter. Rather juicy, yet grassy. Intense, but a bit ’wrong’ somehow. OK, still refreshing. tderoeck (10002) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUN 22, 2017

Bottle sampled @ LIBF 2017. Thank you for sharing RB-InBev Belgian crew! Golden orange. Nose is sweet grain, sugar, vegetable oil, too sweet for me. Taste is weird grainy vegetable oil, caramel, sweetness. Body is grain, vegetable, not my thing. Didn’t appeal too me, too sweet & vegetable oily.

Bottle sample @ LIBF’17, thanks to the RB-InBev Belgian crew for the share.
Dorée, col lanc.
Arôme renforcé par les effluves de levure type lager, notes houblonnées restant nobles avec petit côté fruité fermenté rappelant la banane.
Palais est malté, pils et pâle, avec un effet fruité de banane surfermentée, léger fini épicé venant des houblons - restant ici aussi dans une légère amertume. mike_77 (7011) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - JUN 4, 2017
Dark golden colour with quick fading head. Aroma and flavour are very sweet and malty. Almost honey sweetness. Furthermore a smooth and fairly creamy texture. Evilkniamhel (1034) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 2, 2017
