It’s the roasted Champagne Malt which gives PALM its amber color, but without being heavy. Also available bottle-conditioned as Palm Hergist.

Bottle: Below avarage for a Belgian Ale, would beat many lagers though. Medium body, malty and sweet.

Muggus69 (1228) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - APR 16, 2007
330ml bottle at Belgian Beer Café, Sydney. Some nice rich toffee-like malt and fruit on the nose. Pours a clean copper body with a reasonably dense white head and lace. Nice caramel malt richness to it, with welcome hints of fruit and lightly bitter finish. I’d say this would make a decent Belgian session ale.

Fukito (752) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - APR 7, 2007
Tap, march 07. Copper ale, very restrained fruity aroma, slightly dull tasting. Monotonous medium MF. Not bad, but forgettable.

Sweet malty caramel. Sugary sour, apple aromas. Medium head. Burgundy, red, rust color. Fairly translucent. Caramel flavor. Light body. wheat. sour. very sweet bitterness. Finishes like it should taste stronger. Unsettled bitter finish. very sour bite.

JK (4520) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - MAR 20, 2007
Not very good. An amber colored beer. Light malt in the aroma and considerable diacetyl in the flavor, but some malt below that. Well carbonated.

If you’re going to have this at a Belgian themed restaurant it had better be the first as your tastebuds are going to be somewhat overwhelmed by the stronger beers on offer. As an aperitif beer after the obligatory walk to the BBC in Harrington street this works well. Clean coppery hue and a fine head in its own glass (of course, even though a Tripel Karmeliet I had later was served in a, gasp, Stella glass). The nose is muted but biscuity and pleasant. An equally clean taste is present with malt and aroma hops in a good balance. Very few esters seem to be present here and interestingly it is an acceptable beer at the cold tempertaures with which it was served. It is surpassed by others on the night but as a starter and potential session beer this has fine merit.
