Initially marketed as Palm Hopper in limited edition. Palm’s answer to the recent hop revival in Belgian beer culture, this has a yellowish white, loose, moussy head and deep ’old gold’ colour, clear. Aroma of biscuit, caramel, grass, apple, some citrus, iron. Fruity, rounded palate, slick, a bit sugary, caramel and toasted malts, subdued grassy hops in the finish but (much) less bittering than expected, ending rather metallic and malt sweetish. Should have been a lot hoppier in my opinion, but I guess they did not want to risk putting off the average consumer considering their declining sales. In all, not a bad, unambitious session beer, but that’s about it.

Lele (110) - Padova, ITALY - AUG 15, 2014
Biondo oro un po’ chiaro, splendente. Schiuma bianca e non molto persistente. Aroma floreale: giglio e gelsomino. In bocca è più accentuato l’amaro, si sente bene l’aroma del luppolo. Si avverte anche del buon fruttato. Retrogusto abbastanza persistente e amaro. Birra di classe

De beste Palm dat ik al gedronken heb. Een bier met een goede, uitgesproken smaak.

(Flasche) Es hat eine helle Farbe, die an Waldhonig erinnert. Es ist klar filtriert mit einer fast weißen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist geprägt von grünem, blumigen Hopfen mit einer Zitrusnote, dazu kommt ein harziges Grundaroma. Der Geschmack ist eher langweilig, süßlich, mit einer Honignote und einem Gaumenaroma von Süßstoff. Der Abgang ist ganz leicht bitter.

DutchDrebus (4003) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - AUG 8, 2014
Bottle @ home. Clear amber colour with a medium sized, kinda chunky off-white head. Smells malts, sweet, pilsener. Tastes sweetish, watery, malts, hint of iron, some herbs and spices. There a nice but feint hop taste. Thin body, medium to heavy carbo. Not bad but certainly a bit boring imo.
