damn! wasnt expecting this to be good, realy, but it was ! bought at wijnegemse drankenhal this winter. i ’like’ koninck but i like palm better. and i like palm better than dobbel palm, so, logicaly i’d like this the least.. well its actualy the best. they took all the good caracteristic tastes of a koninck, isoladed it, made it stronger ( dont know WHAT they did but this is what it tasted like to me ) and its absolutely very well done . i wouldnt always drink this but i’ve tasted it withoud any regrets and i’l buy it again next year !
i did hear that this years version was good, but last years wastn.. so it’s kinda depending on the year i gues...
